Okay...praying as I type and for my twitter friends as you read.

Trying to be very clear here.
Communication is a two way street.

My job is to be as clear as I can-and be humble and patient when others tell me they hear me say something-whether I intended it or not.
2/19
My job is to keep my “street” clean as possible and when “reviled to not revile in return” and to keep “entrusting myself to the one who judges rightly.”

If I believe someone is negatively interpreting or if someone is misrepresenting me intentionally- my job is to love.
3/19
If I believe-and hundreds or even thousands of others agree that I have been clear BUT there is one person I can serve by trying to be clearer - my job is to love that person.

So here is clarity- for ALL my twitter friends I love.

Many of us have known this for a while now but it's quickly becoming apparent that, especially after the recent #GeneralElectionResults2019, #Racism in the UK is, not only going to increase, but become even more brutal, widespread & acceptable, as #racists become emboldened by /1
the fact that the Gov itself & those right in the heart of it, not only don't *effectively* condemn #racism but are, in fact, guilty of it *themselves*.

Get ready to see A LOT more (and a lot WORSE) than the examples below, in the future (near & otherwise) against *every /2

#Racism and #WhiteFragility

Important question to raise.


Please read this entire thread, and watch the youtube clips. (Yes, I have watched all, and three times now). This is important if we are going to overcome our internal racism.
Animus is NOT a required component in racism.
#Racism is by-product of #institutionalpower.

#WhiteFragility preserves 'order' whether or not intended.
Important to remember.
#WhitePrivilege, #InstitutionalRacism manifests sometimes in the form of blaming the blacks. It becomes 'code word bonding' and wittingly or unwittingly goes to preserve the status quo. Knowingly or otherwise, it is #WhiteFragility.

O.M.G.!!!
The American President urging another country to disallow @RashidaTlaib and @Ilhan, who are elected members of Congress?
OMG!
63 million voted for him!

#tRump #Israel #Impeach
@RashidaTlaib @Ilhan The 63 million include "leaders" of the #GOP, who always have a mute button on when it comes to their Dear Leader's pronouncements!
Let's see how many Democratic POTUS wannabes step up, like here:

(THREAD) A homicidal mental state is not a mental illness. This is why our laws hold persons accountable who act with homicidal intent whenever a mental illness does not account for that intent. Stigmatizing mentally ill people, unjustly, isn't helpful. The problem is "#Bigotry."
A "#Bigot" is a person who has a baseless bias (or baseless biases) against a group (or groups) of humans. By itself, bigotry is not harmless. It influences the way one speaks, acts, thinks, votes, and advocates. #BigotRhetoric is pernicious, insidious, and infectious.
Repeated exposure to #BigotRhetoric can literally alter how others perceive stimuli. They will inevitably begin to experience confirmation bias that reinforces and augments growing bigotry, in their minds. In any large groups of humans, some will have homicidal mental states.

This #GallOfBitterness being dished out in this video by this man is not the representation of the Church, please let it be clear that this man's hatred and BIGOTRY was what's leading him. This does not represent #Christianity:

And Rev Canon from the South East with his heart of BIGOTRY still went ahead to dish out his #BIGOTRY to these hearts just because of his hatred for Buhari.
This level of #GallOfBitterness can destroy faster than HELL...#AvoidIt

The #JubrilFromSudan started from Nnamdi Kanu just a few days after Buhari returned to Nigeria against all odd & contradiction of your vision SEERS.....
Now even the educated folks & religious leaders joined him in his #GallOfBitterness
Who should we blame now?🤣🤣🤣🤣

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
