Wow Professor Cone's explanation of Unearned Suffering - to me - provides an insightful explanation for say those tragically chosen as targets of say something as evil as COINTELPRO Organized Stalking of which I have heard many victims question WHY they were chosen for such 'unearned' never-ending suffering. Powerfully elloquent & spiritual perspective of RESISTANCE & REDEMPTION~
imagine believing such suffering initiated from one's own government....what would such a thing as that do to the psyche of an innocent law-abiding citizen? I just wonder....
"God will never let suffering be the last word" gives me chills as does James Cone's "Black Liberation Theology & Black Power. This brother is deep!
I would give my left toe to experience his passion at Union, as well as Dr. West's expertise. Union has to be the ultimate in connecting God & African American history.
Union is calling my name....
I am loving this week’s play list!
And all this talk about the cross
The spirit of resistance
You can’t be who you ought to be
Unless others are who they ought to be
God’s spirit is always found
Where we least expect it
And Rance Allen, too! UMMMMMMMMMMMM
Many of our Black elitist have formed white values or lack of values. All white people aren't bad and/or all Black people aren't good. They have crossed the color line in their minds. The KKK will show them the tree and rope no matter where (Havard and/or Columbia) University they were allowed to attend and/or how much white blood they have. Easy to pretend to be white hard to be morally just. Many died so we can vote. Let's not forget Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voters Rights Act of 1965. In chicago 1968 Dem convention Black delegates were denied access and the chicago police attacked and beat Black delegates. Have we forgot?
Racial profiling is a common practice against Black's in NYC. The NYPD set-up safety checks points near housing projects where people of color live. The criminals who aren't of color get a free pass from the NYPD in NYC. Many have a get-out of jail card (PBA card) they buy from their NYPD officer friends. This card get them special treatment before and after arrest by NYPD and NYC jailers. NYC is the largest Black community in the country and the Blacks can't or won't stop this civil rights violation. This is the tip of the iceberg. Many young blacks are arrested for no reason and forced into the corrupt criminal justice system. If the young Blacks could get work or find work they wouldn't be profiled illegally by the NYPD. Most of the Black complaints of Title VII race (black) discrimination are dismissed by the rogue EEOC, DOL and city and states human rights agencies. This must stop now what has the DOJ done look the other way.
I must correct some of my previous statements. The president did appoint Daley as his chief of staff at the whitehouse. The corrupt Daley family connection to the obama's are thur Michelle Robinson-obama who was an assist to Mayor Daley. I stand corrected. So I understand better about the connect between the Daley family and the Robinson-obama family. The president also worked for the Chicago Law Firm of Miner, Barnhill & Gallard as a civil rights lawyer. The president also work in the Business Sector for two years somewhere? He taught at U of Chicago Law School.
Know matter what there's a connection to the corrupt Daley family on both sides of the obama's.
Cronyism is clear practices of the obama's.
Its clear to me that after reviewing Michelle Robinson-obama Bio that she was a member of the Daley crew. I mean she apart of the most politically corrupt family in this country (The Daley's). Once a member of the Daley's always a member of the Daley's gang. Look at all the positions she had from harvard law school and the salaries she recieved. Involved with Americorp to funnel money. Worked at U of Chicago along with her husband. Involved with an intern when she was a member of sibley & austin's managerment. Check out her families estate holdings.
