Katt Williams on Dave Chappelle: “But Dave Chappelle was decapitated in front of us. And until we deal that. Until we deal with the fact that a devout Muslim was accused of being a crackhead. And until we establish the fact that they said he went to Africa to smoke cocaine when we know they don’t have running water and food over there. When they don’t have paved roads over there. You saying he flew past Chicago and Miami and LA and New York and Detroit, you saying he went past Cleveland and Fort Pierce, Florida, and he went past Okeechobee and Oakland, you saying he went all the way to another country where they not eating? You talking about somebody who has a wife and children, five children, and lives on a farm, he doesn’t live here in Hollywood. You saying you convince people that person was an insane crackhead? And he hasn’t been on movies and TV for eight years is that correct? Ok then don’t tell me about what you wanna tell me, I just watched you decapitate him in front of me… Then when he made 500 million dollars, even though his contract said he was supposed to get half of it, they said he made too much for the contract to be valid, so we’ll offer you 10% of what you made. You mean he made 500 million and they offered him 50? Yes. And he said, “what do you think my fans are gonna say? When they find out you offered me 10% of what I made you.” And they said, “your fans will believe that you’re a crazy crackhead by the time you get home. And my nigga got on a flight in LA and by the time he got to Ohio it was so. And eight years later he hasn’t been in a movie or television and is just now trying to do his real comeback in Radio City Music Hall. It’s bees like that sometimes.”

Wow. I didn’t know Dave Chappelle was Muslim 😃

Wow

I finally gained some respect for Katt Williams

Forgive the trees
for the way they can’t stop shaking
even after all these years of practice.
Forgive yourself
for the days you don’t even want to try.

1. God is closer than you think. Even if you can’t feel Him or hear Him right now, He’s there.
2. Change is gradual, not overnight. Trust in who God is calling you to be.
3. Call on the fruits of the spirit when you need them. When you’re annoyed call on patience, when your…

“People waste way too much energy taking things personally. That Facebook post is probably not about you. It was probably an accident that you weren’t tagged in that picture. And the person you’re dating is probably acting sad because that’s how they respond to setbacks at work, not because of anything you did.”

The police can go to downtown Harlem and pick up a kid with a joint in the streets. But they can’t go into the elegant apartments and get a stockbroker who’s sniffing cocaine.

I’ve seen more drugs behind the brick walls of my private college than I have ever even heard of back home in my hood.

It’s a known fact that you will find more drugs,especially hard drugs, in the suburbs than in the hood

the ART of CONSPICUOUS FAITH:

Salt and light—some of us have heard these faith metaphors since childhood. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”(Matthew 5:14). We are the light of the world, Jesus says so. And why wouldn’t we let it shine? If light dispels darkness, shouldn’t we hold it up as high and bright as we know how?

But here’s the thing—just a little while later, in this very same sermon, we’ll hear Jesus instruct believers not to flaunt their faith in unmeaningful ways, as the Pharisees were apt to do. Don’t fast so that other people notice; don’t pray loud so that others will hear, He’ll say (Matt. 6:6, 16-18). How then, are we to understand His declaration that we are people who should stand out, simply by nature of following Him? How much faith flaunting is too much? How brightly should our light shine?

The whole point of the Sermon on the Mount is to address the heart behind the actions, the motivation behind the direction. Following Jesus is more art, less science. It’s not about following rules, it’s about following Him. Saltiness and brightness are not qualities the salt and light determine about themselves. They are qualities determined by their maker. Their purpose is placed within them; it’s not something they muster up by trying harder. The art of living and loving in a way that stands out is simply a matter of being who God created us to be. The light we shine should be His light. The flavor we add should taste distinctly of the Gospel as He taught it.

Finding the artful balance of not hiding our light under a bushel yet not blaring it on the street corner, Pharisee style, does not have to be stress inducing. Really, it comes down to one simplequestion: Who is getting the glory? If it’s you, it’s time to close the door and get quiet before the Lord. But if it’s Him? Keep shining.

I am not afraid to tell you, “I love you.” Your mind may say, “How can you love me when you don’t even know me?” I don’t need to know you. I don’t need to justify my love. I love you because this is my pleasure. Love coming out of me makes me happy, and it’s not important if you reject me because I don’t reject myself. In my story, I live in an ongoing romance, and everything is beautiful for me. To live in love is to be alive again. When you recover your integrity, you always follow love.You live your life as an eternal romance because when you love yourself, it is easy to love everyone else.

A Black man holding a wallet is more likely to be shot by the police than a White man holding a gun.

In 2002, a study by Joshua Correll and colleagues, called The Police Officer’s Dilemma, revealed a phenomenon also known as shooter-bias 

The study found that people hesitated longer to shoot an armed white target (and they were more likely to accidentally not shoot). Participants were quicker and more accurate with black armed targets but there were more “false alarms” (shooting them when they were unarmed). These effects were present even though participants did not hold any explicit discriminatory views and wanted to treat all targets fairly

You’ve got to be kidding me. That’s total bullshit. If you’re going to shoot an unarmed black person and then claim to not have discriminatory views …What a crock of shit.

Yeah, that’s the most contradictory statement… like, let’s be honest here.

Far too many people are looking for the right person, instead of trying to be the right person.
