Who’s up for some trading? I am! Over the last year, a lot has happened. And the truth is, a lot of these unfortunate (AND fortunate) events have brought out a lot of people’s true colors. Whether it be your Facebook friends, your real life friends, or your favorite celebrities, thanks to social media, we have access to EVERYBODY’S thoughts on a regular basis…and sometimes, that can be really annoying.

One thing that’s annoyed me to no end is seeing some of my favorite Black celebrities make complete and utter fools out of themselves, turning their backs on the Black community, making comments on national TV and via Twitter that they really should reconsider. So I’ve decided that there are 6 Black people that I’d like to trade in exchange for 6 White folk. Here’s who I’ve chosen:

Creflo Dollar Asks Members for $65 Million…For His New Plane

creflo

Not too long ago, I wrote a piece about one of Oxygen’s newest reality shows called “Preachers of Detroit”. I touched on a couple of controversial issues within the church, but I failed to mention a particular topic that I had been mulling over since I’d watched the first season of “Preachers of LA.” Excess. Opulence. Lavishness.

While I understand that preachers have a right to make a living, and the right to buy anything that they please with the money they’ve earned, it seems to me that living such a luxurious lifestyle is in direct opposition to the Bible’s teachings.
