    Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the Lord.

    O YE DRYBONES : Black Like Me, 50 Years Later UNCUT

    in Current Events

    John Howard Griffin had embarked on a journey unlike any other. Many black authors had written about the hardship of living in the Jim Crow South. A few white writers had argued for integration. But Griffin, a novelist of extraordinary empathy rooted in his Catholic faith, had devised a daring experiment. To comprehend the lives of black people, he had darkened his skin to become black. As the civil rights movement tested various forms of civil disobedience, Griffin began a human odyssey through the South, from New Orleans to Atlanta.

    John Howard Griffin and the Story of Black Like Me. “It’s a useful historical document about the segregated era, which is still shocking to younger readers. It’s also a truthful journal in which Griffin admits to his own racism, with which white readers can identify and perhaps begin to face their own denial of prejudice
    Most Americans saw civil rights as a “Southern problem,” but Griffin’s theological studies had convinced him that racism was a human problem. “If a white man became a Negro in the Deep South,” he wrote on the first page of Black Like Me, “what adjustments would he have to make?” Haunted by the idea, Griffin decided to cross the divide. “The only way I could see to bridge the gap between us,” he would write, “was to become a Negro
    As the civil rights movement accelerated, Griffin gave more than a thousand lectures and befriended black spokesmen ranging from Dick Gregory to Martin Luther King Jr. Notorious throughout the South, he was trailed by cops and targeted by Ku Klux Klansmen, 
    leaving him for dead. By the late 1960s, however, the civil rights movement and rioting in Northern cities highlighted the national scale of racial injustice .

    O YE DRYBONES :The Sovereign Belief System PART 2/ uncensored

    in Current Events



    Privilege:


    A privilege is permission - granted by a higher authority to carry out an activity. When gaining a privilege, one must often give up a natural right. Example: According to the U.S. Constitution, people have a right to travel public roads in their private vehicles. However, when they enter into a contract with the state to receive a drivers license, they exchange their constitutional right to travel for a state-granted privilege to drive, and are thus subject to the stipulations of the state (auto insurance, realm of integral registration, etc.).
     



    Rights:


    Rights are natural states of being, whether recognized or unrecognized, that all humans inherently possess. (For example, the right to procreate or grow food is obvious, but not necessarily recognized by documentation.) Some rights are recognized in the U.S. Constitution, such as the right to travel. Rights are nullified when they are exchanged for privileges, such as when one enters into a contract with the state through a marriage or drivers license. When natural rights are exchanged for privileges granted from an outside source, one becomes a non-sovereign, or a subject of the authority who has given the privilege.
     



    Civil Law:


    Civil law is the structure that organizes, controls, punishes and rewards individuals who have given up their rights in exchange for privileges.
     



    Common Law:


    Common law, a law of sovereigns, is based on the idea of self-responsibility and natural rights. It is recognized under the Constitution as being the natural state of being. Only in the last century has common law been methodically exchanged for civil law.
     



    Sovereignty:Sovereignty when one operates only under common law

    o YE DRYBONES: IN THE BEGINNING WAS (SPOKEN) WORD AND IT BECAME FLESH#7

    in Current Events

    'TWAS mercy brought me from my Pagan land,
    Taught my benighted soul to understand
    That there's a God, that there's a Saviour too:
    Once I redemption neither sought now knew,
    Some view our sable race with scornful eye,
    'Their colour is a diabolic die.'
    Remember, Christians, Negroes, black as Cain,
    May be refin'd, and join th' angelic train. 


    Phillis Wheatley was the first black poet in America to publish a book. She was born on May 8, 1753 in West Africa and brought to New England in 1761, where John Wheatley of Boston purchased her as a gift for his wife. Although they brought her into the household as a slave, the Wheatleys took a great interest in Phillis’s education. Many biographers have pointed to her precocity; Wheatley learned to read and write English by the age of nine, and she became familiar with Latin, Greek, the Bible, and selected classics at an early age. She began writing poetry at thirteen.

    If ye abide in my word \ Se permanecerdes na minha palavra

    in Christianity

    Jesus therefore said to those Jews that had believed him, If ye abide in my word, [then] are ye truly my disciples;
    and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8: 31-32


    E Jesus dizia aos judeus que nele creram: Se permanecerdes na minha palavra, sereis meus verdadeiros discípulos;
    conhecereis a verdade e a verdade vos livrará. João 8:31-32

    Ye Are Gods Who Told You To Stop Believing That

    in Spirituality

    It has been written; it has been said; you have been told; it has been shown to you by you that “Ye are Gods.”  No matter the religion, the spiritual doctrine from fundamental to new thought, to Metaphysical to New Age there is one message that is the same.  And that message is that you are one with God or your chosen deity.  That fact, and it is a fact that you have come from or have been created by God or your chosen deity makes you a part of your creator.  Just like your parents and your children, or things that you have created, they are a part of you.  No they are not you, yet they are a part of you that can never be separated.  You are a part of that, which has created you, that which has supported you in coming into being or form.  And that gives you the right, to stand up and claim your heritage, and know that Ye Are Gods.


    Join me, Dr. Wendy Dearborne choice expert and Olivia Lashley expression coach and artist for what will be a thought provoking episode of “My Life My Choice.”


    Psalm 82:6 “I have said, Ye are Gods; and all of you are children of the most High.”

    O yE DRYBONES, SELMA PART2: JESUITS, JEWS AND COMMUNIST CONNECTION

    in Current Events

    Dr. King was invited to speak at Saint Peter’s Michaelmas Convocation by the board of trustees, with the main push coming from Jesuit Father Victor Yanitelli, the president at the time. Held at the beginning of the school year, the Michaelmas Convocation is an annual celebration honoring student and faculty with awards as well as featuring a guest speaker.Saint Peter’s awarded Dr. King with an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws and Letters. After receiving the honorary degree, Dr. King spoke on the evils of inequality and how segregation was in opposition of democracy.


    When Martin Luther King visited the White House on June 22, 1963, President John Kennedy took him on a private walk in the Rose Garden and urged him to cut his personal and organizational ties to both Stanley Levison, a white businessman and lawyer who was a close confidant, and Jack O’Dell, a Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) staffer who had been hired on Levison’s recommendation, on the grounds that they were Communists. Levison had been a central figure in party financial activities. Not only was he the source of a big chunk of money bundled from Communist-leaning businessmen, he was also actively involved in laundering party funds. 


    A master strategist and tireless activist, Bayard Rustin is best remembered as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests ever held in the United States. He brought Gandhi’s protest techniques to the American civil rights movement, and helped mold Martin Luther King, Jr. into an international symbol of peace and nonviolence.


    Despite these achievements, Rustin was silenced, threatened, arrested, beaten, imprisoned and fired from important leadership positions, largely because he was an openly gay man in a fiercely homophobic era.
