beautifulinmybrokenness: smidgetz: Being Black gives me a 90% chance of looking 5-25 years younger than I am at any age as an adult for the rest of my life, and I thank Black Jesus for dis skin everyday. Black don’t crack. Amen. Lol I wasn’t gonna do it. But everyday someone tells me I look 12 but i’m 21.
How Social Networks Drive Black Unemployment →
In this context of widespread networking, the idea that there is a job “market” based solely on skills, qualifications and merit is false. Whenever possible, Americans seeking jobs try to avoid market competition: they look for unequal rather than equal opportunity. In fact, the last thing job seekers want to face is equal opportunity; they want an advantage. They want to find ways to cut in...
thisdayandaige: I always imagine myself going back in time with news articles and obituaries and such so I can tell certain celebrities “DON’T DO ITTTTT!” for any situation. So I ‘m not crazy. I’m not the only one who does this.

Pastor: Now, according to a few passages in the bible, homosexuality is a sin.
Couple of older males in the audience: Amen!
Pastor: Now, wait, I'm not finished.
Pastor: You know what else the bible defines as a sin? Divorce.
Pastor: There are countless passages that talk about how divorce is wrong, and that there are consequences to getting a divorce, such as the wife should be stoned.
Pastor: Yet, I witnessed a divorce just this morning. And I gotta tell you, it was heartbreaking, but I definitely didn't attempt to throw rocks at the wife, even though she was the one who filed for divorce.
Pastor: We choose to overlook the consequences of divorce because time has proven that they're inhumane and cruel.
Pastor: The bible doesn't say anything about the consequences of a homosexual lifestyle. Yet, we seem to be spearheading a campaign to ruin the lives of people we don't even know.
-the pastor shifts a few notes around-
Pastor: The bible states to love thy neighbor. That's it. There are no other rules or restrictions to that passage.
Pastor: So, we as a church family have to support equality with a smile on our face. THAT is the true Christian way.
