Young Black and Vegan

Aug 31

i’m just proud of us

for the way we love and support each other

i don’t have a lot of examples of what to do right

but we seem to manage doing it day after day

i just want to give us a gold star and a A for effort all the time

Look, I’m glad ‘12 Years [A Slave]’ got made and it’s wonderful that people are seeing it and there is another view of what happened in America. But I’m not real sure why Steve McQueen wanted to tackle that particular sort of thing.

[‘Fruitvale Station’] explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant. America is much more willing to acknowledge what happened in the past: ‘We freed the slaves! It’s all good!’ But to say: ‘We are still unnecessarily killing black men’ – let’s have a conversation about that.

Samuel L. Jackson

Agreed!

i need to find a women’s ministry 

i need to be surrounded with women who know what i mean when i say “i’m going through it”

I feel this. My church has a womens ministry but i refuse to tell them any of my business.

that’s unfortunate. i don’t really have any business that i wouldn’t be comfortable sharing. but i do think it’s important to build trust with the people you engage in bible study with

one of the guys at my school got married last weekend

and at the welcome back BBQ

he was just so damn proud to call his girl his wife

homie was saying how he loved the feeling of wearing his ring

and when people would say how beautiful his girl is

he’d literally be beaming and was like “i know. i’m lucky”

fam was just glowing

i know that it’s typical to have women gush about being married

but when a man is really in love

they do it too

all the time :)
