It is well known the discrimination and intimidation African Americans deal with. It's depressing and Oppressing.
I remember sitting in church debating whether I should give my last 10 dollars or use it for my gas or lunch for the next week. I never understood why the church was struggling so and had so much foolishness. I thought about all the people who were out there in the world thinking "Boy, there are a lot of people who aren't going to be saved"
WRONG! We are spiritual and not religious.
