Does anyone know of blogs or websites that have great pics of Ghanaian weddings? Especially traditional weddings.
What about Ethiopian’s who are Jewish? So they aren’t Jewish any more because of their skin colour and the continent they originate from?
I just read an article called “Church-going black woman forced to choose: my pastor or my president”.
This article confused me that I am even having trouble putting my words properly down on this page.
It spoke of black women and their love for their pastors since a young age and how the pastors word was law in their lives.
“Black women also love their pastors. Millions of black women show up to church religiously (pun intended), quote the bible regularly and even take notes when the pastor speaks”.
It also spoke of how Barack Obama has hindered that love black women have for their pastors. Now black women spend their moments thinking of Barack, that Michelle has to be scared and worried of Black women trying to snatch up her husband.
“The emergence of Barack Obama out of nowhere garnered enough black female attention that Michelle needs to watch her back at every turn”.
The article goes on to say that now that Barack Obama has come out and said he is for gay marriage black women are now going to have to fight gay men for “their man”
“Another telling challenge for black women might be the pronouncement of President Obama as “The First Gay President.” Having their man stolen by a homosexual is probably the greatest nightmare of nearly every black woman in America”.
The article finishes by saying black women are in a dilemma of whether or not to listen to their pastor or their president Barack Obama now that he has said he supports gay marriage.
“Black women have been President Obama’s most loyal constituency. Asking these women to abandon the teachings of the pastor and bible that they’ve loved for so many decades could possibly be too much to ask”.
I dont live in America, Im Canadian. This article confused me. While reading it I kept thinking are all black women in America Christians? Are all black women trying to steal Barack Obama that Michelle has secret service body checking any black woman that gets closer to her man? Do all black women in America hate gay men and the idea of gay marriage?
The answer is NO. People need to stop writing about black women like we come out of the same cookie cutter. It is beyond annoying and very insulting.
I am a black woman who goes to church. I don’t worship my pastor (only my God). I question what he says and whether it aligns with me and my beliefs, that is the reason we all have our own bible to read and figure things out for ourselves. I know many black women who love the idea of Barack and Michelle being together that they would never want anyone to step in and ruin that union. As for me I believe in loving my neighbour as I love myself. It never said what kind of neighbour just that I should love my neighbour.
