Smart Black People Are Trending On: Pope Francis, Hate Groups, Black Lives Matter, and Big Black Lips

Whether or not Ms. Galicia Lopez identifies black is besides the point. Black people are about One Love, which brings us to Pope Francis. When a reporter in Mexico asked if Catholics should vote for Donald Trump, who promises to build a wall to stop the flow of migrants into the U.S., the Pontiff dropped the mic with this:

A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the Gospel…I say only that this man is not Christian if he said things like that. We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.

By this standard, the U.S. is getting less Christian by the day! Meanwhile, hate groups are popping up like wildfires in July.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has documented an explosive rise in the number of hate groups since the turn of the century, driven in part by anger over Latino immigration and demographic projections showing that whites will no longer hold majority status in the country by around 2040. As the chart shows, this rise accelerated in 2009, the year President Obama took office…

Yesterday POTUS meet with Civil Rights and Black Lives Matter Activist. Those attending included Congressman John Lewis and new movement leaders Brittany Packnett, Aislinn Pulley, DeRay Mckesson, and others according to Darren Sands of Buzzfeed.

Not everyone was excited to attend. Aislinn Pulley declined what she said was a “photo-op” and a “sham”.

Just down the hall there was a party going on at the White House.

No one can doubt the love black folk have for Obama, but this doesn’t preclude the occasional tune up. I received this comment from Charlie Lewis of NYC. “Are you only talking about what’s happening or what we should be talking about? Because I think we need to push Obama to appoint an AA as the Supreme Court nominee…”

Indeed, the rumblings are growing louder for a bench that is unquestionably deep.

The easy pick is Attorney General Loretta Lynch who knows how to rock the red.

Some people can’t handle black women or their beauty. When MAC Cosmetics shared a close-range photo of an African-American model with beautifully full lips wearing a deep purple shade of lipstick, they were bombarded with racists comments.

But never you mind, as the writer Nana-Ama Danquah posted:
