Welcome to my soapbox, of sorts. It's not true a blog, at least not yet.
Think of it as a repository of opinions, opinions that may be useful,
informative, and make you think.
You can't comment for now, but that
may change in the future.
so what will I talk about?
Whatever's on my mind. I'm a bit of a global citizen, so don't worry
about where I'm from.
There are a number of ground rules though:
I'm a Christian and my perspective is through that lens.
I'm not setting out to offend anyone, but that's inevitable.
You don't have to agree with me, and that's perfectly fine.
That's the beauty of opinions. Anyone can have them, anyone can
share them, but we don't have to cosign them. If you should choose
to follow me to twitter to voice your disagreement, just remember,
you stepped on to my turf first. I didn't borrow your eyes and
read it for you.
I'm not here to call names, it's nothing personal.
If you're looking for gossip, get lost.
I'm not looking for a fight. I'm just talking about things that
stir my thoughts.
Somehow, some people have convinced themselves that their sexuality
gives them a special insight into, or exemption from, the plague of
white supremacy. It's often evidenced by statements such as:
"I'm not racist, I'm gay!"
"I know what it's like for (any on-white group) because I'm queer."
"I didn't understand white supremacy because I'm not a person of
colour, Jewish, or part of the LGBT community."
Let me clear: You're not fooling anyone but yourself.
If we're truly seeking to heal the "racial divide," then we have to be
willing not only to give "white" people a seat at the table, but a
turn to speak. Oh and yes, I chose the title to get you to listen.
