Facebook: The new litmus test for bigotry. 

There is a new bigotry detector for your friends, it’s called Facebook.  
Watch these bigots, rednecks and racists make all kinds of outrageous statements that serve to remove the veneer of acceptance; revealing the ugly underbelly of an intolerant society. 
Many of these good old boys probably haven’t read anything other than a headline in years; choosing instead, to get their news from Billy-Bob, their drinking buddy; whose claim to fame is that he still owns most of his own teeth. 

As incredible as it is, these folks are as stupid as they seem. This is most certainly not the case of a carefully considered facade, painstakingly forged to hide a steel-trap mind. This is the real deal, the genuine art of stupidity and intolerance cloaked as patriotism.

If Jesus came to your house


If he came unexpectedly, I wonder what you’d do.
Oh, I know you’d give your nicest room to such an honored Guest,
And all the food you’d serve to Him would be the very best,
And you keep assuring Him you’re glad to have Him there
That serving Him in your own home is joy beyond compare.

But when you saw Him coming, would you meet Him at the door
With arms outstretched in welcome to your heavenly Visitor?
Or would you have to change your clothes before you let Him in?
Or hide some magazines and put the Bible where they’d been?
Would you turn off the radio and hope He hadn’t heard?
And wish you hadn’t uttered that last, loud, hasty word?

Let’s talk

Let’s Talk

Don’t shake my hand in the boardroom
then refer to me as a N-Word in the chat room.
Don’t ask me to give your proposal a second look
Then call me a monkey on Facebook.

Don’t pat me on the back and call me a great guy
But when I talk to your sister or your daughter, you want to die.
Don’t tell me that this is 2015 and racism is over
And when I complain about police stops, you call me a race-baiter.

Don’t tell me that you don’t see race and you don’t see colour
but your circle of friends is Caucasian and non other.
Don’t tell me this is Canada and I should return from where I came,
when you landed here too and refused to do the same.

DO TELL ME when we can have a conversation
about a system that funnels young brothers from the womb to incarceration
Talk to me about jobs, child care and education
and do away with the “our cops are tops” rationalization

All I’m saying is let’s have a conversation
about white privilege, black crime and other stereotypes and perceptions
Let’s have the uncomfortable discussion
not to divide us but to make us a better nation.
