Prince Charles Talks About His Dad
DMX’s Prayer To God 

Hmm, ain’t it odd that Prince Philip (99) and Dark Man X (50) both died on the same day, April 9th? Also on that date, Prince Charles inherited his father’s Title as The Duke Of Edinburgh. The man simply known by the Roman numerals DMX, was also known for his command holding 2 wild dogs at bay, very reminiscent of the African War God Ogun. DMX & Prince Philip’s lives were ever so different, but some similarities are there. While Philip was born into royalty with the lifestyle and power, DMX’s birth name was Earl, also a royal title where in life he himself proved to deal with much adversities handling himself as his own Sovereign. And in doing so, attracting well, you know, it’s no secret that “some people” were trying ever so hard to kill him over the years simply because he refused to fall in line being their industry slave. In youth, Prince Philip had his royal chiseled features attracting interest, and DMX, a nice looking brother, had that striking presence in a place when you saw him. I don’t dig a lot of his raunchy rap lyrics, but the hooks were great. He brought the hood showmanship on stage and kept it real. He had that Rottweiler voice. DMX also had a strong interest in God and often prayed to Him. Where Prince Philip is concerned, he was very ill on his deathbed in a hospital, and during that unfortunate time, Prince Harry & his wife Meghan decided to interview with Oprah and disclose some troubling royal family issues. Now, I didn’t think it was cool, but I sensed some deeper problems as to why they would do it at that time, as bad as it was. How things were supposed to go is like this. After the royal wedding, and birth of Archie, and so on, as a royal couple they were expected to merrily live the life serving The Queen. Not have a fallout. It really doesn’t look good. Now I’m not a Conformist at all, I have my own rebellious ways, just shrewdly done in a suitable fashion. I expected there would be some problems with them over there, but not extending to such a decline. Personally I don’t think Meghan belonged there. And in the little Pro-Black circles on the internet, they’re seeing her as a negro Bed-Wench who married some freckled-faced Overseas Colonizer. They do not have the nicest things to say about you. And I wonder what the hell did these White People from The Firm say about you behind The Palace walls because it couldn’t compare to the rawness of your own people insulting you. I’m just being real with you. Prior to the explosive interview, we were hearing stuff and seeing signs of a crack in that whole thing and while some of us were still hopeful for you, others were just waiting for the failure so they can unleash a slew of racist things because they felt you should have married a Black Man. Listening to some of the stuff and the commentary, you’re lucky that they’re still choosing to not dwell too much on it with the ratchetness, only alluding to the fact that you got your Nigger come up, but then played yourself. The whole thing may have been Prince Harry’s idea to do The Royal Exit, but it looks really bad on you though. And one of your biggest critics is Piers Morgan, someone I’ve paid attention to over the years enough to recognize his antics. You see just a couple weeks before this Oprah interview, someone happened on a few comments I made on Youtube about someone popular embattled with legal issues and the person began attacking me on my points. As I countered this person tit for tat, I could tell from the behavior & style of writing who it might be, and if he kept coming, I was going to playfully allude a couple things letting him know. So I relate my own anecdote to suggest that people are entitled to their own opinions and to freely express them publickly or privately with you and running to complain about it and get the person fired isn’t cool. I happen to agree with him and other Brits about how out of order it was to embarrass The Royal Institution like that. I’m not exactly on their side either, but YOU didn’t belong there. You just don’t enter into a complex situation like that without the proper knowledge or preparedness, especially when there are known problems. Some of the stuff you said in that interview is questionable, and has already been disproven. If Prince Harry fell in love with a slightly darker-skinned woman who was thoroughly raised in England and is aware of royal protocols, the situation may have went better. A royal riff probably would not have happened. There are Darkies out here that encounter racism regularly and we have our own cute and classy way of dealing with it and winning. I remember in finer times when you were touring with Harry in Africa, some guy out there told the press that you should stop referring to yourself as Black because the people out there don’t really see you that way. If you were some tar-colored girl with kinky hair trying to make your way in life, your complaints would be more believable. And yet you’re out there as if you’re really suffering when girls who look like you typically do quite well in life within a racist system since slavery. And I agree with Tucker, who nicely criticized you, and some of what Megyn Kelly had to say. And if you keep complaining, it won’t be long until some hard-core ghetto girls living in the dark recesses of their neighborhoods start reading you too, and bluntly letting you know that you don’t really have a real problem compared to them getting into fights, dodging bullets in The Hood, being somebody’s baby mama, beefing with Hoodlums, dealing with a drug habit and getting in and out of jail. After a while, you’ll start looking like a fool who got ahead tremendously in life, but messed yourself up, rather than being seen as some poor victim of racism. The Royal Institution did let you in to marry Prince Harry, and they accepted you though you didn’t fit the standard of what was proven to work in the past, and any slight issue you had should have been privately and tactfully addressed with The Firm. And maybe you both did all that to no avail, but the current moves you’re making don’t look right. And I understand that you aren’t used to the British lifestyle, history, mannerisms, pomp and finery, but some of us out here are from certain parts of the globe, having a pretty interesting background where in one sense the person seems like a Commoner living humbly, but has traceable roots going all the way back to some kind of Nobility, and the person carries within, a rich legacy for The World to see when the time comes.

Communities Of Color & The Covid-19 Vaccine


Ray Charles – “I Don’t Need No Doctor”
W.A.S.P – “I Don’t Need No Doctor”

Vivere Populi Mei 🚑 Live On, My People

President Joe Biden made a slip up the other day, people have been teasing him about when he said that Blacks in rural areas don’t know how to use the computer to get on the internet to know where the vaccination cites are. Hmm, that came out wrong. We know how to use computers Joe and it’s not just the rural areas. The real problem here is the lack of convenient access to numerous, affordable and adequate internet service providers in our towns & cities mainly due to a racist agenda to keep certain Communities of Color impoverished from competing with fully sourced White ones, despite the educated persons here with their available talents, the cultural resources, and general commercial & political interest in these communities. So The American Government has been pushing this interest for Black people to receive the Corona Virus Vaccine as if they really care about us. Truth be told, no Conscious thinking Black person knowing and studying our history really trusts The System, especially when it appears to be specifically targeting us. We don’t know what’s in the drug or what your true intention is. It might be a drug designed to interfere with our divine melanin benefits. Or, it might be a medicine meant to induce gay behavior you’re trying to get people across the globe to take since The Democratic Party promotes a gay lifestyle. What do you care if Black People die? Go vaccinate your own. If there’s really a disease out there, then as a race of Caucasoid people that can easily be bred out of existence over time if you’re not careful, you should want to vaccinate your own first, right? I’m not concerned too much that vaccines aren’t reaching Black people. Do you know that as a dark-skinned people, we’ve survived through the eons of years on the planet some of the most deadliest diseases known to Man? Many astute Doctors & Scientist will argue that a man-made substance introduced to an otherwise healthy body can interfere with its natural ability to maintain itself. This is no different from a person of any race who has been operating normally without an illness, then all of a sudden he/she was conned into getting a Flu shot, and their system got out of whack with the person falling ill because of it. Also some of the side-effects in many medications are more dangerous than the illness itself. Some news sources out there have even reported some people already dying from that Covid-19 vaccine. The Human Body, equipped with the natural minerals & nutrients it requires to fend off illnesses coupled with a vigorous spirit, sound mind, & adequate rest is all it needs. I’ve not had a problem throughout all this pandemic. And I still see many of the same Niggers around me in my neighborhood moving about just fine. I don’t know what millions of dead Colored people dying from Covid-19 you’re talking about. Also, a lot of this has to do with mind over matter. Our genetics as a Primordial people is more than equipped to deal with any germ or virus on its own. We don’t need you.

The Biden-Harris Transition To Power

Imperium Et Libertatem 🗽 Empire & Liberty

Buffalo Springfield – “For What It’s Worth”
The ‘Black Lives Matter’ Version
The Trump Supporters Version

Okay, so the 2021 Inauguration of both the President & VP Elect, went well today. Things looked the way it should and we now have POTUS #46, and a new First Lady even though Trump did not attend, but he did leave the traditional exit note which Biden read and chose to keep private until he spoke with him, calling it generous. Ex-Vice President Mike Pence attended, extending diplomacy. Now, let’s go back to 2-weeks ago when The Nation experienced an uproar almost similar to The Boston Tea Party, just to reference something from America’s past. Do you know that it’s the Constitutional Right for The People to rise up and overthrow their government if they no longer see it fit? So when Prosecutors are rounding these folks up, they need to realize that. A charge of treason wouldn’t apply. Remember over The Spring & Summer when there were racial issues continually arising with the senseless murder of Blacks at the hands of The Police and other White Men, during The Covid-19 Crisis, it sparked major tension throughout our cities leading to riots, burning & looting, and so forth, by a mix of Colored & Non-Colored Protesters, yet there was no major Prosecution of that. So what we learn is as long as The Fight remains in The Street, tearing down businesses, marching & chanting, then that’s not seen by ‘The American Powers That Be’ as a revolution. But when a mainly Caucasoid group march forth protesting against an Election lost, and storm Capitol Hill breaking in, then you see that as shocking. You were so frightened that it invoked the reality of The French Revolution possibly happening here. Well you wouldn’t have hesitated to shoot had you seen a bunch of angry Blacks marching forth. You would have already been geared up with every trooper in sight. Well many Blacks have made the sacrifice willing to die in the past fighting your bigot government. That’s how we got to where we are today. The reason why this time around The Troopers stepped aside and let The White Protesters in, is because they felt the same way. They believed The Democrats stole The Election. So let’s be fair. When Trump won The Election in Nov 2016, and was accused of collusion with Russia, Democrats didn’t storm The Capitol, they just talked about it, and let a case slip through their fingers. So fast forward to the events a few weeks ago where 5 people died, when a disgruntled Republican President with a lot of power who was made fun of, was able to stand up at a podium, wave his Ivy League hand at a rally of furious fans and made a couple comments which they followed through on, showing you how many voters he really had. They were even willing to lynch Vice President Mike Pence for not using his power at the time to declare Trump, The Winner but to be fair, he did not comply with the democratic interest of impeaching Trump and taking the reins about 2-weeks before this Inauguration. And to this day, these Voters still hold to their conviction that Trump is still their President. So now showing proof of voter fraud is irrelevant. You now have a problem trying to be President over these people. So now that you hold The Reins of Power Joseph R. Biden, are you prepared to make possible racial decisions that may not sit well with The Public? You see, when you look out the corporate window of your White House you’re not exactly going to see a mix of people from all races, shapes & sizes, what you are going to see is just a sterile inanimate non-gender being looking back at you with one half of its face white & the other half black. That’s how decisions are going to be made. They’re mainly perceived that way because America is not the integrated melting pot we pretend to be and The Trump people know that. They don’t pretend everything is alright. They know the problem. You might need to make the unpopular choice one day of needing to do something racist for political reasons. With your current alliance with novel ideals, it will be pretty hard to assert a much needed racial move to globally protect The Nation, without upsetting The Apple Cart. But if your color is Orange, and you care about the color green, you made no promise either way that a black & white genderless being can hold you to. So you go about your way leading and building, and IT can’t impose a demand or make a case for something. Many Black Men have not forgotten your racist rhetoric back in the day Joe, about eliminating them from The Streets because they’re Super Predators. And now you have former Prosecutor & Senator, now Vice President Kamala Harris at your side who was criticized for locking up many Blacks on trivial charges. Do you realize how you look? Trump didn’t look any better, but why did certain Blacks choose him instead, well it was The Lesser Of Two Evils, Trump’s realism and off-the-rails ways sometimes appeals to some Progressive Blacks because it led to something good. If you had 2 Plantation Owners contending against one another. You notice that Joe goes around smiling with the local Politicians, he has Black friends, he pretends he cares about certain issues over the years, but signs on to policies that cripple any chances of Black Liberation. Meanwhile, openly racist Don goes around to his golf course, hangs out at his Country Club, and so forth, not really caring too much about poor people’s problems, but some Abolitionist out there doing some outreach program in his parts, selling some idea to him, he listens and funds the program and then a week later he sees the rehabilitation of some hapless Black Person, and the Negro moved on a week later to becoming a Corporate ShareCropper, then he’s doing a little better than that other Black Person stuck on the Democratic Plantation looking at a ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign his Master just painted as a commemorative accomplishment, after a negro he knew died after a terrible whipping on that spot. Now I’m sorry for coming up with an analogy like that, but this is how a lot of Sensitive Blacks in some communities are seeing you. They weren’t very happy with Barrack Obama either. Mainly Black Women liked him. So now, let’s look forward to Kamala Harris becoming President. It will be the first, a humongous step from Slavery since the 1600s. It took this nation that long to overcome the idea of electing a Colored Female to such a prominent Public Office. The expectations and burden she’ll have to bear. Anyway, good luck to your occupancy in The White House. And beware that your Presidency isn’t overshadowed by the harrowing figure of Donald J. Trump.

ECSTASY OF THE RAP GROUP WHODINI DIED

 

 Whodini – “Five Minutes Of Funk”

I’m not going to let reckless events happening in 2021 throw off too much of my orderly list of topics this year like it did in 2020. So I’ll discuss my controversial views on that recent Capitol Hill Insurrection and other political stuff as they play out, AFTER I see whether or not a transition to President Biden happens or not in the coming days because it’s important to see people make their own independent choices sometimes without outside influence. For now, I’ll entertain you with the recent passing of a Rap Icon I felt should have received more mainstream coverage.

I recently learned that John “Ecstasy” Fletcher of the Iconic Rap Trio Whodini, died at age 56 on December 23rd 2020. The cause of death is unknown. Whodini was one of my all-time favorite rap acts. I simply loved their rap and fashion sense. I don’t have much to say because in cases like this, losing yet another musical favorite, I just grieve and enjoy the nostalgic past.

The Democratic Presidential Nominee for 2020

 Theme from the TV Show “The District”

Caelum Non Animum, Mutant Qui Mare Currunt 🌏 Those Who Cross The Sea Change Only Their Climate, Not Their Minds (Horace)

It’s sad that the leading 2020 Democratic Candidate is going to be Joe Biden. WHY, because he had his chance before & didn’t take it. I brought this up last year in a post about him. NOW, he’s older and being out there campaigning, talking shit sometimes and not remembering facts, critical people are finding fault with him. They’re now re-hashing the touchy feely sexual shit with him & women. THE TIME to win was running after Obama, but many are handling that episode with him like it was okay due to his reasons. Deaths and other personal tragedies around you are defining moments in life. I expected him to ascend to the Presidency then securing the spot for ALL OF US, then take time off some time AFTER the 100 day mark in Office when he would have already some significant accomplishment he did for the country to talk about why he can take a moment to deal with his pain, and letting the VP & others manage things for a while. JUST THINK, if someone he loves around him dies again, his whole campaign could fall apart due to the emotionalism. If he wins the Presidency, and somewhere along the way this happens, the nation may not be managed well under his leadership. I’m concerned about boldness, strength and the ability to lead effectively in the face of hardship. There are some nasty energies out there that may be looking at him a certain way, and quietly trying to figure out how to fuck up his direct line to power, even if he gets there, knowing his disposition. At least with Trump, you need to be careful because if somebody tried setting him off, you might not have properly calculated how he’d react. Plus, he has Advisors around him, so you can’t factor who might reach his ear at the time & you get the wrong response, so your plan gets fucked up. This is how Voters need to estimate. Will Joe Biden be predictable to a shrewd enemy overseas trying to fuck over America? Will all that liberal politics ruin us in the end? Democrats are so blind to that. More so NOW in our time. Do we need more bullshit ‘I’m trying to help you’ Minority programs out there, yet we still can’t get our frigging come up in mass having voted Democrat in the past. At least with a Republican Presidency we stand a better chance of seeing the light. What the hell do you think Joe Biden is going to do for you? Have you looked at his record? The radical Bernie Sanders is a little better, and the other candidates fucked him out of a chance throwing all their support over to Biden. He could ruin his campaign if he picks the wrong person for VP feeding into that liberal shit again, because picking the right VP is essentially choosing a Candidate for the next President after him. The Republicans are great at protecting their best interest in case you haven’t noticed. If they helped Trump stay in power this long after all the mess he had to deal with, do you think they are going to let Joe Biden run up and win the Presidency? When they get to figuring out how to stop him, then what? This argument leads back to what I posted a year ago. The best time, was the last time his chances of success was greatest. It’s HARDER now, too many challenges. He’d be lucky if he wins. So if he does, CAN HE HANDLE THE REAL ISSUES? THE COUNTRY IS NOT THE SAME ANYMORE. There are people here from places in the world that don’t like America and are here with an agenda against YOU and they are living in cities where they can freely operate. So are we going to continue to see a deference in the interest of these people hiding behind YOUR Human Rights Laws as a cover to go around empowering their people here by securing whole neighborhoods, institutions infiltrated where they can protect their own, controlling franchises where they only hire their own, and socially going around imposing their religion & belief system on YOU, the real American, openly. You see, this is all made possible by Democratic Liberalism over the decades when before, there were only small pockets of them in society who were here either truly escaping persecution and/or just a poor family looking for a better life, but they knew their place. There was no political agenda, and they were more likely to adopt a new way of life here. NOW, if you live in one of these highly concentrated Refugee cities in America, what you are seeing is An AGENDA! They are given license by a dumb American system to come here and automatically be on EQUAL FOOTING with Full Constitutional Rights amongst long standing native-born Americans, or Americanized immigrants who have been here for many years. They AREN’T “Americans”. They DON’T have an appreciation for your ways. Their loyalty is to Islam and their culturally oppressive traditions why they remain very much in contact with their overseas interests, purely Muslim businesses, Muslim newspapers and hangouts where they are safe because you don’t know the language or writing, and their fellow Arabs at the Police Station or other U.S Government division, is more endeared to their fellow countryman to really interfere with THEIR OVERALL PLAN. They would more use their American-given legal status and power to prosecute a non-Muslim. And don’t be fooled by the ones born here. Many of them are indoctrinated in such a way that it’s as if they were born overseas. Their loyalty is to the land of their parents and forefathers and their religion & customs. So when you see them, moving about, carrying themselves like that, even normally dressed, acting strange or weird with you, IT’S THAT. Moving into an area as a people & growing numerous in the land, in their minds gives them the right to “take over” and disregard YOU & your rights, yet these are some of the same peoples out there in the world who claimed they were the victim of White Imperialism, but now are doing the same wickedness in THEIR OWN cultural ethnic way to Whites and the other groups around them. In some cases, their presence is corrupting some of the less mentally stable Hispanics & Blacks defecting to their customs as a sport to go around harassing or intimidating women of their own group they see in passing. Nowhere on American soil did that ever happen before. When you grew up in your normal American neighborhood many years ago you saw someone that looked like you or someone you knew running the stores or other centers servicing you in that typical transaction. NOW your encounters with Haji or Mohammed come with the weirdness in getting something because they don’t belong here and they don’t understand certain things and their religious customs get in the way, yet your city force you to have to deal with them locally. Nor did your women need to have apprehensions when walking on the sidewalk or crossing the street because some Arab/Muslim male with cultural sexist views is looking at you with hate and trying to get you to move out of his way. We’ve seen the end result of other countries around the world engaging WAY TOO MUCH with these people importing them in certain pockets of their communities over time. It led to them imposing Sharia Law, when there was already a legal system in that Sovereign nation, it also led to them imposing their customs on you when you already have your own religion and ways, it also led to their men enjoying a deviant practice targeting non-Muslim females intimidating them or raping them due to a lack of respect for their rights based off their religion. And when the people of these places, mainly Africa, Europe, & The U.K, woke up and resisted fighting back, they were criticized for being racist or xenophobic, and all these offenders have to do is hide behind vague Human Rights Laws, which were meant in spirit to cover the basic rights of a decent human being. So do we need a President ignorant to that, who keeps going along with these Muslim Empowerment programs in your neighborhood OR do we need a President who once knew what that same neighborhood use to look like? You see HE would know what to do. Biden Vs TRUMP!

Colin Kaepernick: Nike, The NFL & Jay-Z


Marvin Gaye ~ “What’s Going On”

Genua Obstrepentes Quia Nigrum Certamen  🙅🏾‍♂️  I Kneel In Protest For The Black Struggle

You know the name and the controversy. I knew not jumping on this particular story on the onset of his movement, would yield more for me to cover after we’ve seen the shit play out over the airwaves from last year till now. Who is this Hispanic-looking Brother with an Irish name? Colin Kaepernick is the bi-racial child of a blond-haired blue-eyed Mother & African-American Father and he’s a football athlete who plays for the San Francisco 49ers. With the on-going police brutality against “Black” Men & Women everywhere in America, him taking it upon himself making a striking political statement at NFL games by taking a knee during the singing of the American anthem, is in the praise-worthy spirit of deceased Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This move drew angry criticism from a segment of the population that were “White” (racist or not) who didn’t think the NFL was the right platform to protest urban bigotry & that it showed disrespect to the flag and The Nation. Well…. Other attacks on the issue has been done before by Newscasters, Youtubers, The Common Person on the street, etc. Kaepernick is the only Football Player to put a spotlight on the problem by using the Sports Industry. The only other pivotal moment in history was the 1968 Olympics when 1st & 3rd place medalists, (Tommie Smith, Gold & John Carlos, Bronze) dark-skinned track & field athletes playing for the United States, went on the Olympic stand proudly wearing there medals, through up the Black Power fist during the American anthem for the World to see protesting in the struggle for the same racist persecutions going on at the time in America where The Black Panthers took a political stand opposing the Governments treatment of us. Admidst those medalists was the solitary 2nd place winner from Australia, Silver-Medalist, Peter Norman. People don’t know much of him, since he’s not the primary focus in that iconic photo, but he too as a “White Man” was involved in the protest in his humble way, because he decided to wear the Olympic Project for Human Rights (OPHR) badge in support which was contoversial, and ofcourse even though he was already a medalist, Australia didn’t use him again because of it for the next Olympics, but he’s also noted in history for taken that stand at the time. America punished the 2 Black athletes too expelling them from the team. The 3 athletes kept in touch with each other in life re-creating the historic pose as old men. Australia later repented declaring a Peter Norman day. When he died, the 2 surviving Black athletes carried his coffin. Why the protest at the time? THEY had to, and Kaepernick had to, the police brutality, etc. When you’re “BLACK” and you’re living it everyday, something is wrong if you’re not protesting in some way. Yes, the move drew anger from President Trump and Kap got fired. He filed a lawsuit against the NFL because after all, it IS his Constitutional right to make an expression like that. The suit yielded some pay, but not to great satisfaction, he did not get his job back. So as time went on, Sports giant Nike, entered the fray embracing Kap, and that move upset those same people who don’t like what he did. Nike stocks dropped for a while, but they kept Kaepernick & he looked and sounded great in those print and televised ads. Soon, the minds of people changed back in favor of Nike & the sales happened. And as we went on again in life, another change happened where recently Rapper Jay-Z made the comment that ‘it’s time to move beyond kneeling’ and this drew much criticism. It was taken as a diss, but the comment is subject to interpretation. Do we keep marching & kneeling as an oppressed people? That’s how many movements start before it gets physical. What he did was effective enough to draw attention to the issue. Kaepernick’s motives have been criticized by some who feel he’s just looking for attention, he wasn’t a great enough athlete and they were going to cut him, so he did that move as a tactic. Well, that’s all speculation. He got fired anyway, the point is, he inspired other NFL players to take the knee with him and The Brother, showed where he stands politically, rocking his fro. So what now? Well….., the NFL has Jay-Z with them as a part Owner and some see that as a betrayal, but Jay-Z is another strong Black Brother who declared he wants Kaepernick re-hired. Whether he has the power or not to make that happen remains to be seen, the point is, they are trying to clear up a problem. The NFL has seen a steady decline over the years in ratings & interest. They’ve lost their heyday. Just trying to pick the right Halftime performer to hold the audience & hope everything goes right is a daunting task. When they chose Adam Levine last time, Cardi B, like Rihanna stood with Kap and chose not to perform the song they did together, ‘A Girl Like You’. Adam Levine & his band Maroon 5, should NOT have taken the job, but he thought the controversy was good for him, not realizing he was further exposing himself. Months before that on ‘The Voice’, he fucked over DeAndre Nico, a strong soulful Black Contender on his team for some lesser singer (Reagan Strange), a young white female he knew personally, who was nearly voted off the prior week, who got voted off the competition the next week BECAUSE, America didn’t like that, and the fiasco was all over social media . So HIM, opposing Kap, and doing a lame performance at the Half-time show, also hurt the NFL. Until they properly solve this issue with Kap, their general approval will continue to drop.

Hurricane Harvey And Joel Osteen

Hurricane Harvey wreaked its havoc in Texas displacing people from their homes, reminiscent of Hurricane Katrina when it had hit New Orleans in 2005 & people were flooded out & homeless. Pastor Joel Osteen came under fire for not opening the doors of his Mega Church at Lakewood soon enough. When he came on the TV morning shows explaining WHY, the 2 excuses were that there was a homeless shelter they work with down the street & the organization later asked them to become a shelter, also he had concerns about the stadium being at risk for flooding itself. Well, the TV anchors let him off easy, but here’s what’s wrong with that. It’s not the first time storms hit Texas in general; most architects construct buildings with the threat of natural disasters in mind & he got exposed when people went around with cameras seeing how safe & dry his place was. This incident further exposes the separate world these wealthy Christians live in, but you keep giving your money to them. They don’t share the same reality as you. Poverty & being displaced from a residence is not something he needs to worry about. There is an obvious disconnect why it took him a while to help & the public criticism for him to open his doors to his huge space & house these victims. Other businesses & persons (& not so religious) helped without being asked to but Osteen failed to, when he’s supposed to be a leader from God, appointed to do the right thing. It didn’t need to get there. He’s a nice prosperity minister to listen to, but If you’re going to claim “GOD” then do what is expected of you when the time comes without hesitation.
