I’m a huge Jalen Hurts fan, but this loss is on him. I know Scott fumbled and Reagor dropped that last pass, but you can’t throw 3 interceptions in a game. Hopefully he learns from this and stops forcing passes into coverage. #frustrating
The acquittal of #KyleRittenhouse opens the door for white vigilantes to kill anyone they want to. It also puts a spotlight on the judge’s biased actions during the trial.
God is so good. Two years ago today we founded @ManUpPHL with a  citywide meeting on gun violence. Tonight we celebrate that with a dinner and strategy session with mentors and mentees who are working together to change lives. We are fully funded, we have committed volunteers, and we have a Listening to the Streets initiative that gets brothers off the streets and into jobs. This week we release our first white paper based on that program. We work to end gun violence one life at a time. Can’t wait to see what the next two years brings!

I tried to reply to SJ at “his email address”:
I read your comments…minimizing whites is fashionable in some circles,way to pile on and be a part of the problem.You have contributed nothing positive and simply piled on with the other folks who refuse to grow,because it can be painful and takes effort,like anything worthwhile.
What you do takes much less effort,and there are tons of people already doing what you are trying to do,and it is failing…some call it bigotry.
I didn’t say racist because we are all one race:human. And I didn’t call you a bigot because well…we all have some growing up to do. When I see someone like you living a tired old victim script it makes me hope you read a book or two and elevate your consciousness past the point of proliferating the hate,which only serves avoiding growth and getting gladhanded by peers who are part of the Crab Bucket of Negativity.

It is up to you…we ALL describe our lives any way we want. And THAT my friend,is true power. Try using your pulpit for something more outside the box,and contribute something instead of cashing in on and encouraging hate Your rhetoric is hardly original or compelling,and you sir are overpaid.
