The Nigga Church - a Pictorial Tribute to Coonin' for Jesus

SIGH. Sometimes I literally have to pinch myself just to make sure that I am not trapped in some sort of astral projection mode. Unfortuantely, when I do the pinching the sensory cells on my skin fire the messages back to my brain to confirm that I am not dreaming. What I am witnessing with my own two eyes is indeed reality. It may be utter foolishness and nigga behavior raised to a google power, but this is no act.

Below you will find pictures of the fallen prophetess and new face of marketing domestic violence as a way to sell her poorly written self help books that haven't been much of a help to her.

I honestly thought this was a drag queen for a brief moment. The fact that Essence Magazine publishes stuff about this woman... these pictures included, solidifies my belief that its existence is to undermine the aesthetic and image of black women. Chitlin' EATIN' Negress, Juanita Bynum though it was necessary to take these god awful pictures as a way to memorialize her 50th birthday AND show her wife beating ex-husband how great of good thing he missed out on.

My personal favorite out of these few pics of ridiculousness is Juanita's interpretation of Black She-Ra! I can hear her saying now, "By the Power of Grayskull!!! I Have the Power!!!" "Now come forth Swiftwind, my trusty steed and help me cut this cake!!!"
You dummies who support her as a minister are deserving of having all your cash separated from you as this phenomenon is common for people who are fools.


I am She-Charlatan, Defender of Confusion, Purveyor of Lies and Deciet! All will bow before me OR I am going to cut myself a very large piece of cake!

You may view the rest of the foolishness here.

The Nigga Church: An Introduction

First things first.... Happy New Year! A month late and a dollar short... yadda, yadda, blah, blah, blah. I know. I have been dealing with a number of vexing issues regarding family, friends, work, life, and love. As I stated in my previous post, withdrawing is my way of compensating. So instead of venting and whining about every little thing in my life that hasn't turned out quite the way I planned it, I simply decided to limit my communication with the outside world. I am emerging from my cocoon... slowly, deliberately, albeit surely. I won't call this particular emergence a cathartic phase. Truthfully, the last several weeks have been incredibly overwhelming and at this point I think the best thing to do alleviate some of my anxiety is to write.

Even as I type this post, I feel myself becoming a little less frustrated and slightly less lethargic. Yes, I experienced the enormity of this past week and yes, I am absolutely thrilled that we have a president in ofice who has a little swagger, looks like me, and seems to have absolved himself from that youthful awkwardness that plagued him during impromptu press conferences and the debates during the primary. I digress though.

For the past 6 weeks I have been reading several books that discuss the American Black and the Black Church. Many of you might remember me mentioning that I was writing a post, The Nigga Church, in which I explore the relationships of American Blacks to their most revered institution, The Black Church. I had put the finishing touches on the post and was going to publish it around the end of December, but relented. I recognized that some of the language might offend some of you... especially you gullible folks whom I consider friends. So instead of starting out 2009 by alienating many of you I hold near and dear to my heart, I decided to revise the post. As a matter of fact, The Nigga Church will contain many of the same ideas I wanted to discuss in the peppery first draft, but I am tempering my language for that "reaching more flies with sugar/honey than vinegar" effect. In addition, I'll be discussing my own path to spiritual enligtenment and how it does not include the contamination of the Black Church. The Nigga Church, the post, will be developed over a series of smaller blog entries.

Finally, I think it's fair to assume that I'm going to piss a number of you off anyway, no matter how diplomatic or ecumenical my ideas seem to be. They are my ideas and before you get your panties, boxers, G-Strings (or clothing for those of you who always go commando), remember that. Don't come on my blog quoting pages of scripture that you don't have the theological expertise to interpret. As a matter of fact, I would hope that the lot of you who call yourselves believers would be smart enough to realize that an eternal, omnipotent, omniscient being - who happens to be the creator and sustainer of everything that exists (if you believe that) wouldn't be limited to some 66+ books of subjective inspiration used as a foundational basis for your faith system.

Welcome to 2009.

On Hiatus...

Life Happens. So what do you do when it does? For me, I cut back on much of my extracurricular activities and that includes blogging. I'm coming back though and stronger than ever before! Be Ready. In the meantime, enjoy my pics from the Inauguration.
