Most recents (3)

There’s been a lot of talk about #Forgiveness in the African American community.

Many are calling it “conditioning” by our society, and something that should come to an end.

I hope these opinions don’t become a reality.

#AmberGuygerSentencing

If the actions of #BothamJean’s brother, the black officer, and the black judge, were somehow a form of “conditioning”— I wish all of us were conditioned to do the same.

#Forgiveness
#Forgiveness is not a shameful thing.

In fact, it’s something I’ve always admired about the African American community.

It’s just a shame that it’s always your community who’s put in the position of needing to forgive.

Let me tweet this again bc people are missing a few things when it comes to #BothamJean's family and this forgiveness.

~ Forgiveness does not mean Botham's mother doesn't believe #AmberGuyger's sentence shouldn't have been longer.

#AmberGuygerTrial #AmberGuygerSentencing 1/3
~ For some folks, forgiveness is done FOR YOUR OWN SAKE. It has NOTHING to do with the person and what they did.

~ Forgiveness and Accountability are not mutually exclusive

~ Mama #BothamJean ain't told nobody to do what she's chosen to do

~ FORGIVENESS IS NOT ABSOLUTION

2/3
~ #BothamJean's mother understands all of this about forgiveness because she walked out of that courtroom, stepped her forgiving soul to the mic AND DRAGGGGGGED THE DALLAS PD FOR CORRUPTION.

Yall HAVE GOT to get to a place where you can hold more complex thought. Jesus! 3/3
