BOBBEE BEE: YEEZUS: THE CULT OF BLACK CELEBRITY

YEEZUS: THE CULT OF BLACK CELEBRITY by e.graham

Sometimes, we must utilize the lives of others and make them our books, in which, we should study in order to learn from their success as well as their failure. This week's Sunday School lesson is about the Cult of Black Celebrity, which came from our “beloved” brother Kanye West, who showed us, despite all of his Narcissism, that Black success still desires white validation, which usually comes in the form of award shows-that, unfortunately; offer us nothing-but “valueless” trinkets, trophies, and toys. West, with all of his accolades and arrogance, proved that this “stuff” still matters to him and us, with his past on-stage antics-when he interrupted singer Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech. Because, Beyoncé’ didn’t win….












Yes, West has morphed into an extreme exaggeration of the Cult of Black Celebrity, who, “unsuccessfully,” try to escape from their blackness by buying into whiteness, while living in a Black body in the white space of Hollywood. Whether, it comes in their desire or fetish to have a white lover-or their odd promotion of some form of white supremacy. In Kanye’s case, he expressed it by proudly wearing a “Let’s Make America Great Again” hat and foolishly saying that- “slavery was a choice,” which seemingly came straight out of the Alt-Right handbook- that would, in his mind, allow him access into a world of unattainable white wealth.

We saw this play out on Celebrity Apprentice, where Donald Trump constantly fired and embarrassed former celebrities, who still desired the attention and adulation from their fictional boss. Unfortunately, being on the show never really paid off for anyone, who chose to be humiliated on it. For instance, the hated Black villain-ness, Omarosa Manigault-Newman, despite her loyalty and devotion to Trump,eventually found herself getting thrown under the segregated bus as well as out of the White House.

See, no matter, how Kanye or Omarosa tried to tap dance around the real issue and the reality of racism, it still existed when Donald Trump's name was mentioned. So, whether West’s crazy appearance on TMZ, was a twisted plot on the Kardashian-reality TV show, a political distraction from the war in Syria, or simply a mental meltdown-or a mental breakthrough, according to Kanye. His actions, showed us that alleged “greatest entertainer ever” was metaphorically-living in “a house without mirrors,”-Michael Jackson-style, where somehow, he had forgotten about his own reflection as well as what he was reflecting to the rest of the outside world. Especially, in the land of Holly-weird, where attention has become the “new” currency, if people are willing to pay attention to it.

This attention, of course, is driven by trolls, who penetrate lost souls, with hearts, -seeking for love, bruised egos, with hateful comments- seeking for acceptance, and ideas, through like buttons, which get murdered if they are not liked or shared. Especially, if it is music, an album or an unwatched video.

Yes, we have all “secretly” had our Kanye moment, myself included, by posting our emotional comments and rants about people, who have hurt us, voicing our uninformed “opinions” on issues with little knowledge or political education about the realities of certain situation - in our quest to be “deep” or Facebook famous, while trying to obtain Trump like Twitter followers, by (sometimes) uploading ill-advised photos on Snapchat, with “hidden” desires to be Instagram Supermodels or PornStars by getting butt implants. Or, highlighting how gangsta-we really are-by foolishly displaying all our  guns and drugs on our bed on Facebook, while bragging without fearing that someone watching it-won’t report our actions and location to the local police.

Yes, in the world of Reality-TV, this is the “craziness” of the Cult of Black Celebrity, which some say- is a form of cultural prostitution, where Black bodies, ideas, and expression, are used, abused, exploited, trashed and even killed after they are deemed useless-only to replaced by a younger model or version, who, unfortunately, fail to learn from the past of those that came before them. And, sadly, repeat the same mistakes.

See, unfortunately, our entertainers can never be our liberators. Because, they live for the applauds of others, where ever it may come from.....And, when the applauds start to stop-and the cheers begin to turn to boos. They begin to unravel and unfold.

Yes, Kanye showed us that he was only an “expression of wealth,” who was spiritually broken, while complaining about being financially in debt and a “slave” to his own “Dark, Twisted Fantasies,” where he believed that love and wearing a cheap-looking red Trump hat could somehow eliminate racism and change the landscape of American history in a blink of an eye. Because, despite all his alleged “Black genius, Black riches and Black mobility through materialism,” he still found himself powerless and pointless in the hierarchy of Hollywood, who only saw him as just an “Uppity,loud-mouth”Ni#**-that made beats and designed high priced sneakers for the fashion world, which he didn’t have access to.

See, regardless, of his so-called popularity and “free-thought” philosophy-(no different from Puffy, with his claims of purchasing the Carolina Panthers)- Kanye, found out, that he didn’t have enough cash to buy his way into the room. Especially, when nobody invited him to the party, in the first place. OJ couldn’t do it. Tiger couldn’t do it. Michael couldn’t do it. And, Bill Cosby couldn’t do it, either.

Therefore, maybe, Trump will give him some “Hush Money,” in order to shut  him up like he did Stormy Daniels. Because, Bruh, you just got “F*#@ed,” without a condom. So, good luck, with the “new” album, they will probably give you a Grammy for it. Because, without knowing it, you have done so much to advance their cause…."But, brother, don't forget the lyrics of your old song; Jesus Walks cause the Devil is trying to break me down.  

BOBBEE BEE: TEST OF TIME: PORTER LIVING IN HIS TRUTH

TEST OF TIME: PORTER LIVING IN HIS TRUTH by e.graham 

National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) was first observed on June 27, 1995. This is a day to encourage people to get tested for HIV, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment.

The theme for 2022, “HIV Testing is Self-care,” is timely, given that self-care has been a particularly important topic during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s also timely as the need for individual and community actions to promote physical and mental health remain critical. 

So, why is this relevant? Because, actor Billy Porter, who stated he was sexually molested by his stepfather from the age of 7 to 12; at least twice a week over a five-year period, before coming out at 16 in the middle of the AIDS crisis, has been living secretly with HIV for 14 years before finally living in his truth. 

The 52-year-old Tony-winning actor, whose role as Lola, an indefatigable drag performer whose broken heel helps mend a broken wing for a foundering shoe-maker, played by Stark Sands, in the Cyndi Lauper-scored Broadway musical Kinky Boots said the narrative of the musical, which dealt with forgiveness, allowed him eight times a week for three years to forgive his own father, as well as his stepfather on stage for their past transgressions. 

Unfortunately, Porter's childhood traumas continued to haunt him in June 2007, when he was diagnosed with HIV, which he hid because didn't want to embarrass his mother, who had been persecuted by her church community because of his past "queerness." 

"I have lived with that shame in silence for 14 years. HIV-positive, where I come from, growing up in the Pentecostal church with a very religious family, is God’s punishment." Porter, who has been in psychotherapy since he was 25 years old told the Hollywood Reporter. 

Even though from the outside looking in, the talented singer's HIV status was obvious from his Red carpet appearance at the 2022 BET Awards last night, in which he wore a Rick Owens Sweater with lifted shoulders & skirt, Porter's decision to get tested may have added years onto his life.

 "I am the statistic, but I’ve transcended it. This is what HIV-positive looks like now. I’m going to die from something else before I die from that. My T-cell levels are twice yours because of this medication. I go to the doctor now — as a Black, 51-year-old man, I go to the doctor every three months. That doesn’t happen in my community. We don’t trust doctors. But I go to the doctor, and I know what’s going on in my body. I’m the healthiest I’ve been in my entire life." (Source:HR) (DM)

BOBBEE BEE: THE FALL OF AN AMERICAN IDOL

 "Flee fornication" -1 Corinthians 6:18


 THE FALL OF AN AMERICAN IDOL by e.graham

The 30-year sentence of disgraced Chicago-born R &B singer R.Kelly, who won three Grammys and sold over 75 million records worldwide, was right on KEY. Especially, after the last Verzuz performance by Ray J, Omarion, and Jeremiah, who sang slight OFF-KEY, which left many listeners and fans feeling bamboozled and disappointed.

With these young crooners or "cooners" sounding like an old HOUNDDOG howling at the moon, with perfect timing, Hollywood promoted the NEW ELVIS PRESLEY movie directed by Baz Luhrmann, who teamed up with Austin Butler and Tom Hanks to tell the dramatic life story of "one of the greatest singers" ever to perform on stage.

Ironically, while the world criticizes R.Kelly's relationship with a young pop-star Aaliyah Dana Haughton, Elvis, at the age of 24 years old, met his future wife, Priscilla, at 14, serving in the US Army in West Germany in 1959.

In perfect harmony, Kelly, 55, conviction for federal racketeering and sex trafficking charges stemming from his efforts over years to use his fame to ensnare victims, which he sexually abused, also came in the same week as Brit socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, 60, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for trafficking underage girls with Jeffrey Epstein,  an American financier, who died in a New York prison cell on 10 August as he awaited, without the chance of bail, between 1994 and 2004, where she recruited and groomed them, in the wake of the MeToo movement, which encouraged women to speak out about sexual abuse, often at the hands of wealthy and powerful people.

With the conviction of our beloved brother Robert Kelly, who, according to his brother, was molested by their older sister, as a small child, unfortunately, continued this evil cycle as an adult.

This is why (Luke 6:37,) states: "Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.

However, on this earthly plane, due to his lustful actions (Gal 5:19), Kelly's earthly judgment was given by U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly in Brooklyn, New York, which was 30 years in prison.

But,  remember, there is another judgment pending, for the R &B Star, which according to Revelations 20:12-13, states "small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works, which one's spiritual judgment.

So, in this world, where we worship entertainers and idolize actors as Superstars, remember, Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

BOBBEE BEE: FLIRTING WITH FAME; DANCING WITH DEATH

FLIRTING with FAME; DANCING WITH DEATH by eric d.graham

 Even in the height of the so-called “Me Too Generation and the Hot Girl Summer,” where we have seen Jeffrey Epstein’s elaborate sex trafficking ring exposed, documentaries revealing and criminalizing the sexual acts of R. Kelly, rape cases against Harvey Weinstein being placed on trial, and the imprisonment of Bill Cosby, oddly, one of the most celebrated films of 2019 was entitled Hustlers, which was inspired by a New York Magazine article that follows a crew of former strippers, who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients by “seducing’ and “drugging” them.

The film, while imitating life, features Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B, a former “stripper” herself, who confessed on VLADTV to have drugged and “tricked” many “Johns” in the past in order to steal their money. But, in a world, turned upside down and inside out, entertainers like Cardi B., who has made a change for the better and Black China (Ezekiel 16:44) have become role models for some females.

 However, The Book of Proverbs 5: (3-10) describes these types of women this way: For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil; but in the end she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it. Now then, my sons, listen to me; do not turn aside from what I say. Keep to a path far from her, do not go near the door of her house, lest you lose your honor to others and your dignity to one who is cruel, lest strangers feast on your WEALTH and your toil ENRICH the house of another.”

Along with this physical form of prostitution, there is also a level of political prostitution, as well, where politicians for the love of money, which is, “THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL” will sell their souls to the highest bidder. (1 Timothy 6:10)

Now, unfortunately, the strip club culture, in this generation, has been “shamelessly” celebrated and promoted by Jewish-ran Hollywood, where twerking and “shaking it for the dough” has become a form of idolatry and worship, which has many of our young people, spell bounded, (MagicCity) offering up their tithes and offerings to the "pimps" in the underworld along with the seductive dancers, who twirl around poles, rather than the pimps/ or prosperity preachers in the churches. Please, don’t misinterpret my logic. For, I am not condemning the art of dancing. There is nothing new under the sun. Because, in the Book of Hosea (4:12-14) it states: A spirit of prostitution leads them astray; they are unfaithful to their God. . “I will not punish your daughters when they turn to prostitution, nor your daughters-in-law when they commit adultery, because the men themselves consort with harlots and sacrifice with shrine prostitutes— a people without understanding will come to ruin!" 

Despite these facts, the strip club mystique, again with the assistance of Jewish Hollywood, has also been fused into the porn industry, which dominates “most” google searches throughout the Internet, creating a level of “sexual deviants”, pedophilia, and a culture of sex trafficking. It also has influenced Instagram posts and pictures, where the Daughters of Zion have been identified as T.H.O.T.S (The Hoes Over There,) while posing in front of their bathroom mirrors with their cellphones in hand, lips puckered,poking out their butt for the world to see in order to receive (likes and comments) from strangers, which was made popular by Kim Kardashian. Bishop Eddie Long failed victim to this counterculture as well. Yeah, beware; there are male prostitutes out there too. ( 1 Kings 14:24 )

We witnessed the "strip-club" culture recently when 8X Grammy nominee Lizzo and TIME magazine The Entertainer of The Year, who, shamefully, displayed her backside publicly at a Laker’s game. The Book of Lamentations Chapter 1(7-8) address this issue this way:"Her enemies looked upon her, laughing at her downfall. Jerusalem has sinned greatly; therefore she has become an object of scorn. All who honored her now despise her, for they have seen her NAKEDNESS…

Let’s remember historically, during slavery, our women, were stripped of their clothes and dignity, while standing NAKED on the auction blocks by our “oppressors “or slave masters, where they were made prostitutes, breeders or “bed-wenches, a low-status concubine, often a slave, used for sex, or, in modern day terms a Black woman, who date a white person, in order to seek privilege.

With that said, remember what The Book of Revelation, which referred to Babylon as A Whore, The Mother of Prostitutes and Abomination on Earth, which was/is symbolically seen as a female figure, states, “All the nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her immorality. The kings of the earth were immoral with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown wealthy through the extravagance of her luxury.” Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, My people, so that you will not share in her sins or contract any of her plagues

BOBBEE BEE: LIZZO LAYS DOWN $500,000 AGAINST THE LAW

 LIZZO LAYS DOWN $500,000 AGAINST THE LAW by e.graham 

I have always been told that "Entertainers can never be your liberators." 

Well, over the weekend, this statement was made evident. So, beware of the piped piper with the magical flute. Especially, when she announces that she is going to donate $500,000 of her upcoming tour proceeds to Planned Parenthood after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. 

This donation and seemingly promotion for abortion rights come along with the disturbingly fact that so-called "minority women," who constitute only about 13% of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, underwent approximately 36% of the abortions. 

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, Black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion. 

On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States, according to BlackGenocide.org. 

Matter of fact, it has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. 

Michael Novak had calculated "Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for, without abortion, America's Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member." 

To some, this sounds like population control. Especially, with the Caucasian birth-rate declining and fertility clinics or sperm banks being the "new" norm in their communities. While Planned Parenthood seems to dominate our neighborhoods. 

Now, it should be understood Planned Parenthood provides a variety of other services, besides abortions, which include treatment for sexually transmitted infections, and screenings for cervical and other cancers. But, it seems, as if, abortion is their main focus when discussing Roe vs. Wade, which was based on a lie. 

With those facts, whether Pro-Choice or Pro-Life, Black Women must understand that they are being used and manipulated to promote a white feminist agenda. No different than affirmative action of the past, whether it's the Black Lives Matter Movement and LGBT political policies currently being pushed through legislation. 

So, remember, the former founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger started “The Negro Project” in 1939, with the aim of expanding birth control services for Black communities in the south, where she wrote a letter to a program director advocating employing Black physicians and ministers to gain the trust of the communities with these words: "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” 

So, as (Luke 23:34 ) stated: "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." For, when did white society give freedom and independence to Black women, who still give birth to slaves.

BOBBEE BEE: POP CULTURE & POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS

POP CULTURE & POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS by e.graham

Four years ago, we witnessed celebrity churches, celebrity politics, and celebrity education utilized as symbols of so-called social & political change as Black people continued to deal with Police Terrorism, Voter Suppression, New Age Segregation, Systemic Racism, and high levels of poverty.

But, in reality, these so-called celebrities, in the end, turned out to be only mouthpieces and mascots for white supremacy. Whether it was Joel Osteen prosperity trained preacher, John Gray, who sat at the table trying to negotiate with Donald Trump, while later publicly displaying his $200,000 SUV Lamborghini for his wife, which was highly scrutinized on social media.

Or, Kayne West, who buck-danced around an array of issues at the White House, while becoming a token Negro in the world of Whiteness as he tried to convince the world that slavery was a choice on TMZ.

See, while celebrities found themselves handcuffed to white wealth, whether it was Lebron with his new school and his social media post of a song lyric that referenced "Jewish money," Colin Kaepernick's NFL boycott and  infamous, but now, forgotten, Nike commercial, or comedian Kevin Hart, who, recently, was forced to apologize for his alleged history of anti-gay jokes and tweets, "Conscious-ness" seemed to be commercialized as people tried to convince each other how "WOKE" they were as the rest of the world remained asleep in the Age of Donald Trump.

Truthfully, Black Celebrity and White Politics is like Oil and Water. They simply don't mix. So, as the Democratic Party begins their new political campaign, we must not participate in any form of Kumbaya politics.

In this new election cycle,  we, in fact, must selfishly focus on our own self-interest. We can't afford to worry about any other group. Whether it's: the LGBT community, the Palestinian community, the immigrant community or environmentalist groups, who are concerned with global warming.

Why? Because, we have no political allies. Plus, politicians LOVE to utilize the "coolness" of Black people. Especially, Black celebrities to gain votes . Obama did it with Jay-Z and Beyoncé. And, Trump tried to do it with Kayne & Kim Kardashian.

But, unfortunately, for most celebrities, with their attention-seeking spirits, they look for individual success rather than group uplift by gaining access to the White House.

With this little known fact, have you noticed, we are the only people, who allow entertainers to be our spokespersons? You never see  "Jewish comedians and actors" be the spokesperson for their community. You never see a white athlete be the spokesperson for the white community. Or, an Asian, Arab or Chinese actor be  the spokesperson for their community. But, the white power structure has made the Black athlete and entertainer the spokesperson for us Because, they know....they won't deviate from the script written for them.

Yeah, we all saw Cardi B. conduct an interview presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in 2020 along with Kamala Harris's attempt to be hip on the Breakfast Club hosted by Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy.

So, it will be interesting, who these new Democratic candidates will try to use to get elected in 2024. Especially, Elizabeth Warren, who tried to make herself look "HIP" by posting herself having a beer on Instagram in order to attract a younger demographic of voters last week. It's Politics as Usual.

Now, all of these Black celebrities, recently, at the 2022 BET Awards, have decided to promote Abortions after the U.S. Supreme Court officially reversed Roe v. Wade.

So, don't be shocked when you see Dwayne Wade's face in 2024 as a political poster "child."

BOBBEE BEE: SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY: THE RENEWING OF THE MIND

 SUN-DAY SCHOOL LESSON: SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY: THE RENEWING OF THE MIND

According to the scripture, Pro. (23:7)“as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” With that said, let’s analyze the psychological term known as IMPOSTER SYNDROME, which is an obsessive internalization of a persistent fear that you are going to be found out to be a fraud or the collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist despite evident success.

We see this in the world of sports, entertainment, academics, and in the professional world, where one struggles with the idea that they are not good enough or incompetent. For instance, we have all seen quarterbacks, Black or Caucasian, struggle with this concept after throwing an interception, making a bad read, or losing a big game. Especially, if he was drafted as the #1 overall draft pick or selected in the first round.

Usually, these players suffer from a bad case of self-doubt, which is fueled after reading their own press. Whether online, via Twitter, or Facebook accounts. Or, by simply listening to an endless amount of talk radio, or even worst, watching the 24-hour loop of roundtable discussions on YouTube, from ESPN and FoxSports analysts, who question their greatness, salaries, and existence in the league.

SEE, being a professional athlete can be a lonely journey, despite all the glitz and glamour. As a result, many, especially, those, who play the QB position in the NFL, start feeling, as if, they don’t belong or are unqualified to be under center. So, after a few bad games, many of them find their confidence and self-esteem shattered within two years, subjugated to a backup status within three, and out of the league after five, where they are forgotten by the “fans” and replaced by the next round of college athletes in the upcoming draft, who will be praised and viewed as the saviors of the franchise.

With all of this pressure, many players start developing (NEGATIVE SELF TALK), while becoming obsessed with being validated by others, second-guessing themselves, questioning their identity, losing themselves to a point of delusion by the way of social and political isolation, forcing themselves to total assimilate, through inter-racial marriages in order to survive or co-exist in the unwelcomed, emotional, judgmental, stressful, racially charged environment known as the NFL, where some become depressed, which leads to substance abuse issues, (cocaine, steroids, pain pills, alcohol, marijuana) And, in the worst-case jail time for committing a crime.

Along with all of this, psychologically, many Black players also may experience bouts of RACIAL BATTLE FATIGUE, a concept coined by William Smith, which attempted to address the issues Black students face while trying to survive in the toxic atmosphere of Higher Education within the “White” University school system, where they must be 3X better than their White counterparts. Even though, there is not a level playing field. For this reason, Racial Battle Fatigue has been compared to post-traumatic stress disorder experienced by military soldiers, who have been bombarded with the stresses of dealing in chronic hostile environments. In the case of the Black athlete, however, the constant stresses of “being the first fired; last hired” haunts their psyche, as well as, the constant verbal abuse coming from coaches and fans, which can be racially charged, where one is often seen as some kind of slave, savage, toy, criminal, rapist, or Beast on the field and outside of the arena when they remove their helmets and shoulder pads by the media.

This could lead to a form of COGNITIVE DISTORTION, which means perception becomes one’s reality and a self-fulfilling prophecy, where one does exactly what one believes he would do.

This is why all of the players in the NFL must read Romans 12:2, which states: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

So, to all of those young signal-callers, regardless of "race," whether you're a veteran QB or backup quarterback- KEEP THE FAITH. For, the NFL is an acronym for N.ot F.or L.ong. (bobbeethehater.blogspot.com) (Cash app $IrisRCarter)

BOBBEE BEE: GET OVER IT. BECAUSE, ONE BLACK QUARTERBACK DON’T STOP NO SHOW

GET OVER IT. BECAUSE, ONE BLACK QUARTERBACK DON’T STOP NO SHOW by e.graham 

The NFL survived the horrors of concussions, which still continues to cloud the league. Janet Jackson’s exposed nipple. Beyoncé's Black Lives Matter Half-time show. Hurricane Katrina. A Super Bowl Blackout. The Domestic Violence of Ray Rice. The Murder Plot of Ray Carruth. The Dog-fighting of Mike Vick. The Brady Rule. The Child Abuse Allegations against Adrian Peterson. The  Michael Sam. Hands Up Don’t Shoot. The rape cases against Ben Roethlisberger. The alcoholism of Johnny Manziel. OJ Simpson. The sexual assaults of Greg Hardy. Tebowing. Steroid use. The “N” word. Donald Trump & The USFL. The temper tantrums of T.O. The boycotting of the “Redskins” and Daniel Snyder. Contract Negotiations. Quarterback Controversies. The Rooney Rule. Deflat-gate. Pac-Man Jones. Jerry Jones. The Cocaine Cowboys. Bullying in the Locker room. First Round Busts. Al Davis. Jimmy “The Greek” Instant Replays. Thursday Night Football. Wildcat Offenses. The Alleged Cheating of Bill Belichick. Conspiracy Theories. Helmet-to-Helmet Hits. Gun Possessions. Gun Charges. Negative Press. Endzone Celebrations. The marijuana usage of Ricky Williams, the current lawsuit of Michael Bennett against the Las Vegas Police Department, and even this current sex scandal surrounding Deshaun Watson

And, truthfully, they will survive the current issue “plaguing” the league, which surrounds Colin Kaepernick, police brutality, and the standing of the National Anthem. Why? Because, many people believe the NFL stands for the clever acronym- N.ot F.or L.ong.

Meaning? -That the white executives, with three-piece suits, in the boardrooms, of the NFL main office, know this issue will eventually take a “back seat” to another issue after a short period of time with the help of the next “breaking” news story from TMZ.

Because, in their eyes, this “Kaepernick thing” is just a simple bump in the road, a case of the hiccups before the main course meal is wheeled-out. Then, it’s back to business as usual.

Why? Because, the NFL knows every year they have a another assembly line of players to choose from , who are willing to do almost anything to be drafted in a league full of millionaires.

Plus, with the public “whipping” of Colin Kaepernick fresh on their minds, they will know not to step-out of line. Or, they also will be “whiteballed” out of a job and sent back home unemployed.

Besides, they want their “property” to be seen not heard. In other words, just shout up and play the game. Nobody is paying you to voice your political views or your religious beliefs. So, stay racially neutral. Smile for the cameras. Love America. And, pledge allegiance to the Flag. There ain’t nothin hard about that. These are the hardcore FACTS!!!

The struggle continues. Fist up and Heads Down. So, get ready for another round.. www.bobbbeethehater.blogspot.com (Fouls & Fumble)

BOBBEE BEE: COMMUNITY GATHERING & GRIEVING: THE FAMILY "DIE" NAMICS OF DEALING WITH DEATH

COMMUNITY GATHERING & GRIEVING: THE FAMILY “DIE”-NAMICS OF DEALING WITH DEATH by e.graham

Grief is a normal process through which we work out and eventually resolve our deeply felt loss and the accompanying pain and anxieties. According to grief therapists, one of the main reasons a person suffers prolonged grief is that they have been unable to express, in their own time and in their own way, all the complexities and stages of their grief, thoughts, and emotions, and do not feel heard, acknowledged and supported. In bereavement, this may include a yearning for the deceased, a need to blame others and to express guilty feelings. When a person is having to cope with change, feelings of frustration, anger, and depression can contribute to prolonged grief. (Counseling, Milne, A)

In Biblical times, it suggested that people mourn differently. For instance, the Egyptians “allegedly” mourned for Jacob for 70 days (Gen 50:3)(This is all symbolically, of course.) While , Israel mourned and wept for Aaron and Moses for 30 days (Num.20:24(Deut.34:8).

But, we, however, should understand that the REAL grieving process takes place after the funeral ceremony when all the people are gone.-when there are no more hugs to give, no more tears to shed, no more “fake smile” to endure, no more phone calls to answer, and no more prayers to be heard.

Those, who have dealt with losing a loved one, have to bear witness to this.

SEE, while DEATH can bring us all together. It also can TEAR US ALL APART. DEATH, in fact, impacts one’s family life, sex life, social life, work life. And, even, one’s church life.

This usually happens during the time of bereavement, when there is a breakdown in communication. Especially, within the family dynamics.

For instance, the trauma of losing a loved one can turn that “sweet-loving mother,” who once got along with everyone into an aggressive or passive-aggressive person, who becomes IMPOSSIBLE to deal with in the confinement of the home. This change of personality or Dr. Jekal and Mr. Hyde duality of the soul , can fester over time, making the person short-tempered, easily annoyed, argumentative, and unbearable to live with. Especially, if the pain of losing a loved one isn’t dealt with in a proper time frame. And, in the worst-case scenario, this shattered personality becomes a permanent part of this person’s “suffering soul.”

How many of us know “mean-spirited” or bitter grandmothers, who never dealt with the pain of losing one of her children or husband?

It can be a painful and almost “unbearable” experience for the grandchildren or surviving children to deal with, as they walk on egg-shells when encountering her, as she “belittles them,” curses them, and attempts to pass-down her unhappiness to the next generation.


Yes, Death has a tendency to high-jack one’s emotions causing fluctuation in moods, where one, psychologically, goes from one extreme to another,” from depression to anger, until it leads one to eventually breakdown like that classic “DAMN, DAMN, DAMN…James” episode of Good Times, where Esther Rolle, as Florida Evans, smashed the dishes on the floor.

This “roller-coaster of emotions” usually causes one to isolate themselves or withdraw totally from the rest of the family. This self-isolation and alone time, which is designed to allow a person to relax, reflect, and release, can, however, become problematic if prolonged for an “unhealthy” moment of time.

This could leave the person becoming completely numb, where she/ can lose contact with reality, losing motivation to clean up or dress up, or beautify themselves. Which, could lead one to develop an anti-social attitude, when one decides not to communicate with the “outside world.”

This lack of motivation, isolation, and failure to communicate, unfortunately, can affect one’s job performance, due to lack of concentration and rest, which leads to unwanted stress, and irritability with co-workers, who, seem to be poking all their buttons. Even, if, they are generally concerned about their overall well-being.

“I just want to go to work, get my check, and go back home. That’s it. Ya’ll need to leave me alone”

Unfortunately, this attitude can leave the 9 to 5 during the week and walk into the CHURCH on Sunday Morning, where they could infect the congregation, the preacher, the choir, and the ushers, whether Consciously or Sub-consciously. That person, with their snobbish attitude, “heartened heart” becomes so STUCK in the “quicksand of their own GRIEF, often tries to pull others into their depths of spiritual uncertainty.

This self-isolation and failure to communicate, NOT only can have a DEVASTATING impact on THE CHURCH but on one’s romantic life and marriage as well as. SEE, the failure to communicate can affect the emotional, intimate and sexual relationship with one’s spouse, which could lead to divorce, if the person fails or loses the desire to heal from their traumatic lost.

Movie Director Tyler Perry tried to address this issue in his film Why Did I Get Married, when Janet Jackson and Malik Yoba battled over the loss of their child in a traumatic car crash.

Most pastors and houses of worship, unfortunately, fail to realize the impact death can have on a marriage. For, I know several men, who in their TRUE BARBER SHOW CONFESSIONS admitted that their wives were never the same after “losing their mother or their son until it destroyed their marriage. Because, their wives, sadly, had lost their ability to love again, or enjoy life. Whether, it was simply “going out” to a party, restaurant, movie, vacation, comedy club, dance or sporting event.

DEATH, however, not only attacks the institution of marriage. But, it also can creep into the parental process, where a once “loving and responsible” father, who was fair and balanced, after losing a loved one, can become an abusive dictator and a terrorist within his own home. This abuse of power and authority as the head of the household can come in the form of verbal abuse, mean-spirited language, cursing, name-calling, and physical abuse toward his children along with his wife. Some men, not only abuse their families. But they also abuse alcohol and drugs as a coping mechanism in order to deal with death. (Women included)

How many of us know an uncle or aunt, who have used drugs, as a form of self-medication, whether marijuana, cigarettes, cocaine, heroin, or alcohol to numb the pain of loss and the sting of death, which led to their addiction and the breakdown of the family social order.


With all the turmoil death can cause, sometimes families fail to validate their children, who also are trying to understand and process their own inner grief, which usually goes unnoticed, despite all the threats of one going to Hell from a fire and brimstone preacher and shouting of their aunties.

Children, despite what one may think, also need to be comforted and embraced, while being educated about the 5 stages of Grief. Which are: 1. Denial 2. Anger 3. Sadness 4. Bargaining and 5. Acceptance.

I have witnessed too many funerals where children’s emotions are never properly addressed, which flare up later in school, at home, and in their neighborhood, in the form of fights with friends, poor grades, disciplinary problems in school, involvement with gangs and even drug usages, which could affect their physical, emotional, and psychological mental health.

As we consider all of these scenarios surrounding the bereavement process, one should realize it is a matter of the “HEART, MIND, AND SOUL, which triggers our emotional memory, perception of reality, and logical reasoning about loss and death. So, families should take a plan of action in order to process and heal from their pain through music, meditation, prayer, counseling, psychotherapy, pastoral instruction, or emotional support groups.

For, in the New Testament, Christ’s work removed the dread and pain of death (1 Cor 15:50-55)

Now, this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

BOBBEE BEE: DRAFTED ON THE EVE OF ENVY

 

"Rachel ENVIED her sister..." Gen 30:1

SUN-DAY SCHOOL LESSON: DRAFTED ON THE EVE OF ENVY by e.graham

 A day after the 2022 NFL Draft, where the world celebrated all 262 players, who realized their dreams of having an opportunity to play professional football, which ended with Mr. Irrelevant, Iowa State's QB Brock Purdy, we must warn those players, who were selected about one of the deadliest of the seven deadly sins that reside in the soul of man, known as ENVY, "The Mother of Murder." 

Why? Because, while, it seems, as if, everyone is cheering for their newfound success and potential financial riches, they are also those, who envy their potential rise to stardom.

While this spirit of ENVY can come from strangers, former teammates, and other athletes, who weren't lucky to be drafted, unfortunately, it can also appear within one's own family unit-whether it's a brother, sister, cousin, father, close friend or girlfriend, who were invited and sat in the room at their selection party, with a cellphone. recording the celebration as their names were being called on national television.

It's sad but true. Because, while these newly drafted athletes were putting on their freshly fitted NFL caps, proudly displaying their logos, as their eyes teared up with joy, somewhere, in that room, someone was fighting the emotion of ENVY.

I know this sounds odd. But, even, within the Biblical text, we have read about sibling rivalries that were, intensified by animosity and resentment between Jacob & Esau (Gen 27:35,) Cain & Abel (Gen 4:8), Rachel and Leah (Gen 30:1) Joesph and his brothers (Gen 37:11), because one was favored over the other.

This ugly emotion, known as ENVY, can rear its head like a poisonous King Cobra rattlesnake striking all families, not just the ones labeled dysfunctional, subconsciously or consciously, which could lead one to destroy life-long relationships within family units through "blackmail" by revealing "family secrets" to the media in order to harm one's chances to succeed, frequent family conflicts due to request of large sums of money, based on the philosophy that "you got it; don't you," and continuous attempts of self-sabotage through endless fights and arguments, which could lead to prison time-whether it's a result of a girlfriend or future wife, who can't handle all the attention one is receiving. Therefore, she uses the birth of a newborn baby as a bargaining tool for leverage along with her sexuality to cause one to be jealous (Prov 6:34)

Or, a father/mother, who due to lack of opportunity in the past along with generational curses, which continue to haunt the family (drug addiction, alcoholism) has come to believe that "no one in the family- is supposed to make it out of the ghetto or become successful." So, they, even though, their son has reached the pinnacle of success, can't come to grip to congratulate him.

Therefore, they just watch in silence. But, when given an opportunity to speak, ONLY fill his head with negativity, belittling him about not being selected higher or suggesting that he should have gone to another team.


Or, a brother/sister, may sarcastically joke-that another player is better, one probably will get injured, cut by pre-season, out of the league in three years, while ending up the first-round bust.

This was highlighted in the classic 1996 film Jerry Maguire, where the character Tee-Pee, played by comedian Aries Spears constantly downplayed his brother Rod Tidwell, a wide receiver for  Arizona Cardinal portrayed by Cuba Gooding Jr.

So, while pondering all of this a day after the 2022 NFL draft, one should BEWARE of this envious spirit, which lingers in the hearts of some of OUR family members by::

1. NOT BEING AFRAID TO RECOGNIZE IT

2. NOT BEING NAIVE TO DENY IT

3. TRY NO TO MINIMIZE IT, INTERNALIZE IT OR WRESTLE WITH IT, where it moves one to anger or depression

4. TRY NOT TO JUSTIFY IT

5. SET BOUNDARIES, AVOID NEGATIVITY BY NOT GIVING THEM ACCESS TO YOUR DREAMS

6. BE WISE, CHEER FOR YOURSELF.

7.  PROTECT, NURTURE YOUR DREAMS AND CONTINUE TO WALK IN YOUR GREATNESS,  (bobbeethehater.blogspot.com) (Source:T.Hall)

BOBBEE BEE THE HATER: THE REVELATION OF AN ACCURSED PEOPLE


 SUN-DAY SCHOOL LESSON: THE REVELATION OF AN ACCURSED PEOPLE by e.graham

The story of so-called Black People, the
Covenant People (Gen: 12:1-3,) the seed of Abraham (Gen 15:13) known as the Lost Children of Israel (Matt 15:24,) who were prophesied to be enslaved in the strange land amongst strange people for over 400 years(Acts 7:6), makes the symbolic writings and pages of the Bible, become a Living SCROLL (Rev. 5:2) Especially, with the innocent bloodshed of our ancestors by our enemies, which involved the brutal act of lynching, where they were viciously "hung from trees."

Matter of fact, in 1932 Blue singer Billie Holiday sang a song entitled a "STRANGE FRUIT," which, was, actually, written first as a poem, then later as a song by an Ashkenazi Jew, named Abel Meeropol.

According to Biography.com, Meeropol's inspiration came from a 1930 photo that captured the lynching of two Black men in Indiana like the ones that appear in the book Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America by John Allen published in 1999. The visceral image haunted him for days and prompted him to put pen to paper.

Why? Because, if Meeropol, a Jewish convert, had to have read the Torah, and known that LYNCHING was the most disgusting form of death to the Israelites. For, according to Deuteronomy 21:22-23: "He who was hanged is accursed of God."


Despite that fact, the Jewish Sanhedrin sought and obtained Roman authorization to have Jesus crucified (Mark 15:13-15.) by this same degrading practice, which was done in order for the HIM to rot in public for breaking one of the laws of the Torah. (Deu 27:26.) But, the law strictly commanded that the "body shouldn't remain on the tree overnight but be buried the same day (Deu 21:23)

This is why the so-called Black people, who are viewed as being ACCURSED, are the symbolic embodiment of the Christ-figure, who himself, was seen as CURSED. Because, He, like "so-called Black people" was killed by begin hung on a tree (Act 5:30,) and publicly displayed as a criminal and an "enemy of the state," even though, he was innocent. (Deu 19:10.)

Despite this attempt to curse on us and Christ, the Law of God is perfect. Even though, man tries to keep it, interrupt it and judge those, who brake it (Matt 7:1-5) all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Therefore, in His grace, Christ lifted the Curse off of us through His sacrifice, which is explained in Galatians 3:10-13:

For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree:

Now, this, again, is symbolic language, beautifully written for " Jesus being "hung on the tree," which was believed to be an acacia tree, is associated with being crucified on the cross, made of Acacia wood, the same wood used to build the ARK of the COVENANT, a sacred portable CHEST-along with the MERCY SEAT and CHERUBIM stationed in the INNERMOST room, or Holy of Holies, of Moses' tabernacle, and Solomon's Temple. (Astrologically and anatomically significance)

For, remember, in Hebrew, the word ARK is translated as COFFIN, which, ONLY appears in Genesis (50:26), or the Genealogy of Isis, in which Joseph's, meaning to ADD, is seen as the sign of the CROSS, body was placed after he died in Egypt. If you recall, in the legend, he was raised from the dead after being tossed in a pit and left for dead by his brothers, which, provides a significant development of the Abrahamic covenant.

A covenant, in laymen's terms, is a promise or God's guarantee that He will provide salvation in spite of the people's inability to keep their side of the agreement because of sin.

Throughout the scripture, The Most High made covenants with the biblical characters Adam and David (Gen 3:15; 2 Sam 7:14-15,) Noah (Gen 8:21-22), and Abraham's descendants due to his faith (Gen. 12:1-3)

But, Christ, known as the Son of Man, is the fulfillment of the covenant God made with Abraham.

Why? Because, although, in one sense, all Jews are the physical seed of Abraham. Christ becomes the final focus of God's promises or THE ULTIMATE SEED; making His people, the spiritual seed of Abraham, in THE NEW COVENANT, which was prophesied in the Book of Jeremiah 31:31-34: Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake..

But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their HEARTS; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Masonically those, who have knowledge, wisdom, and understanding, should "overstand" this scripture. Why? Because, Romans 2:25-29 states: For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

After reading these verses, who is the SEED of Ab-ra-ham, AB (The Father) of The Black (Ham) Ra (Son?) Those learnt men and women should be able to decipher these verses and be able to locate this BLACK SEED, this BLACK STONE, the KABA, as well as the LOST ARK OF THE COVENANT, because this SEED, CHRIST, himself compared His own death and resurrection in a figurative sense to the sowing of seeds in Chapter 13 of Matthew in three parables: the parable of a sower (Matt 13:3-9,) the parable of the wheat and tares (Matt 13:24-30; 36-43,) and the parable of the mustard seed.

SUN-DAY SCHOOL CLASS: THE DRAMA OF MARCH MADNESS (CHRIS ROCK, JADA PICKETT & WILL SMITH)

 Surely oppression makes a wise man MAD (Ecc 7:7) and women rule over them (Isa 3:12)

SUN-DAY SCHOOL CLASS: THE DRAMA OF MARCH MADNESS pt.2 by e.graham

English playwright and actor, William Shakespeare, whose name appears, hidden in the Book of Psalms in Chapter 46, a number signifying one needs more balance in his life, (which the word "shake" is 46 words from the beginning and "speare" 46 from the end) stated "All the world's a stage. They have their exits and their entrances and one man in his time plays many parts."

This statement proved itself to be true because on the night, of glitz and glamour, where the world celebrated the best of film and cinema, we witnessed, what appeared to be, a scene from a Shakespearean tragedy, similar to Macbeth,  known as the KING OF PAIN, which starred Denzel Washington, who was consumed by ambition and impulse by his wife, leading him to murder yet wrecking him with guilt and paranoia in the end. But in this new Hollywood rendition, instead of three witches prophesying one greatness, it involved three female comedians as the host Regina Hall, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes,  along with a man, who seemingly had been driven MAD at the Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre.

 For, our beloved brother Will Smith, who was named best actor for his role in King Richard, oddly, the name of another historical drama by Shakespeare, seemingly, "acted out of character"  walked on stage in the middle of comedian Chris Rock's monologue, assaulting him live on television after a joke directed toward his wife, Jada-Pickett, went terribly wrong.

The act by Smith was so shocking, that many people believed it had to be staged. It couldn't have been real. But, the Book of Proverbs (18:6) warned us that " A fool's lips lead to strife, and his mouth provokes a beating. ... And, just as the Book predicted; Chris Rock was slapped. But, the show had to go on, which it did without hesitation.

(For) Surely oppression makes a wise man mad;..(and) the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. (So) Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger rests in the bosom of fools. (Ecc 7:7-9)

In stating that, I encourage one to read my previous post entitled Everybody Plays The Fool Sometimes, where I asked, "Who played the role of the devil in this unbelievable drama, which captured our imaginations?"

Why? Because, (1 Tim 4,) states "that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils (Scientology) ...

For, while most of the world viewed this as an example of toxic masculinity between Smith and Rock,  who reacted violently in order to protect his wife from a verbal assault, Jada-Pickett Smith, sat, almost emotionless, with a snarky smile on her face, slightly out of frame, yet the center attention, as the supreme architect of this conflict.

Why? Because, she, despite her level of perceived innocence, played a major role in bewitching (Act 8:11) her husband with her RED TABLE TALK, where she, according to some, emasculated him (1 Cor 6:9), with conversation and discussion about infidelity and adultery (Heb 13:4)

But, again, Proverbs, a book of wisdom addressed this issue this way in a section entitled BEWARE OF ADULTERY in  Chapter 6:24-32:

Keep... from the evil woman, from the flattering tongue of a seductress. Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, nor let her allure you with her eyelids.

For by means of a harlot, a man is reduced to a crust of bread; and an adulteress will prey upon his precious life.

Can a man take fire to his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?

Can one walk on hot coals, and his feet not be seared?

He may have to give up all the substance of his house. Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding; He who does so destroys his own soul.

Wounds and dishonor he will get; his reproach will not be wiped away. For jealousy is a husband’s fury.

In analyzing these words, while watching Will Smith, who, despite his moment of anger,  still was awarded the Oscars for Best Actor Award. But, if we are honest, on that stage, we saw a broken man

For, Proverbs 12:4 states: “A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.”

This scripture was evident in Smith's teary-eyed apology to the academy but not to Chirs Rock when said,

 "Love will make you do crazy things..."  His understanding of love was similar yet different to that of Anthony and Cleopatra, Romeo and Juliet,  Othello, and even Adam and Eve of the Bible. For, he had FELL victim to Love and had become another example of a FALLEN MAN, a FALLEN STAR, and a FALLEN ANGEL.

Because, many questioned, whether, art was imitating life. For, the Philly-born Prince, seemed to be possessed with an unfamiliar spirit. Especially, after his infamous slap and outrageous profanity-laced outburst

And, in keeping the theme of Hollywood movies at the forefront of this discussion, let's not forget, it was Denzel Washington that appeared in the 1998 movie entitled FALLEN, which was about a fallen angel AZAZEL, who in the Jewish legends, is  a demon or evil spirit, cursed to roam the earth without form, switching bodies by any contact (Lev 16:8),  who consoled Smith in his moment of darkness by offering him a "little light" (Matt 5:16) with these profound words that

At your highest moment, be careful, that's when the devil comes for you,”

As deep as Denzel's words were, they mimicked those in Matt 4:8-11, which stated:

the devil took him (JESUS) up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; [9] And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt FALL down and worship me...

For, Mark 8:36 states: For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

This scripture holds true. Because, cross-dressing Hollywood has taken parts of many stars' souls from Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Bill Cosby, R.Kelly, Kanye West, and the list goes on.

But, now, it's Will Smith's turn. And, he is the new scapegoat to be crucified. However, this to shall pass.

So, Will "Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down." (Philip 4:6-7) (bobbeethehater.blogspot.com)

BOBBEE BEE:DISAPPOINTED BUT BLESSED (DENZEL, WILL & TYLER PERRY)

My beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:-James 1:19

 DISAPPOINTED-BUT, BLESSED TO SEE TWO WISE BLACK MEN STEP IN AND OFFER CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Something that's being overlooked in the chatter about last night is how Tyler Perry and Denzel Washington checked on Chris, Will, and Jada and helped calm the energy in the room. Make Black men practicing conflict resolution a part of the topic..

Because too many brothers are locked up in prison and have killed or been killed for situations like this...

Yeah, it was just a slap. However, others are dropping bombs. 

But, Blessed are the Peacemakers Matt 5:9....(Source:T.Walker)

Denzel is "The Greatest;" Tyler Perry "much respect" (bobbeethehater.blogspot.com)

BOBBEE BEE: EVERYBODY PLAYS THE FOOL-SOMETIME (WILL-SMITH, CHRIS ROCK & JADA-PICKETT)

 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”- James 4:7


EVERYBODY PLAYS THE FOOL-SOMETIME by e.graham

Denzel Washington stated,” In your highest moments, be careful, that’s when the devil comes for you!”

But, who played the role of the devil last night.

Will Smith, Jada Smith, or Chris Rock?

For they all were dancing in the devil's cesspool known as Hollywood.

Again, Denzel stated: "” In your highest moments, be careful, that’s when the devil comes for you!"

So, who played the role of the devil last night.

My answer is all three of them-Will Smith, Jada-Pickett, and Chris Rock. Yes, they all fell victim to the whispering spirit named Shayṭān, in the Islāmic myth, known as the JINN.

See, according to legend, the whispering spirit like in the movie Devil's Advocate played by Al Pacino only makes suggestions into men’s ears but have no real power over men. It is said that they are as close to men as their blood or jugular vein, but the shaitans can only tempt, and their success depends on their "cleverness"

In the Holy Quran, Surah Al-A’raf (The Heights ) 19-22, it states:

O Adam, dwell, you and your wife, in Paradise and eat from wherever you will but do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers. But Satan whispered to them to make apparent to them that which was concealed from them of their private parts. He said, ‘ Your Lord did not forbid you this tree except that you become angels (SUPERSTARS) or become of the immortal.’

Now,  keep this in mind, because a lot of this tension, which is mere speculation, I don't know these people, came for Jada's Red Table Talk, which opened up a Pandora's box of accusations about infidelity, "entanglements," "suggestions" about open marriages, homosexuality and a host of other "suggestions", created by those millions of "whispering spirits" on-line, in Facebook posts, YouTube clips, and suggestive memes, which made Smith look like a FOOL.

And, for these reasons, questions kept coming, remember, actress Laverne Cox had an awkward encounter while on the red carpet for the Screen Actors Guild Awards after referring to the infamous “entanglement” in front of Will and Jada.

But, as Denzel said,” In your highest moments, be careful, that’s when the devil comes for you!"

And, last night, when all the stars were out in which we were anticipating -celebrating his acting excellence, in a moment of darkness, his Ego got the best of him.

Notice, Chris Rock's NEW Australian comedy tour is entitled the “Ego Death”


See, the definition of EGO is the part of the mind that mediates between the conscious and the unconscious and is responsible for reality testing and a sense of personal identity.

So, in studying the mind and the duality of soul, Chris Rock played the role of The Joker and Will Smith played the role of the Dark Knight LAST NIGHT.

See, even though Will Smith won the award, defending his wife, and slapped Chris Rock in the face.

He actually lost.

For, the Joker made him "look" like The Fool. Even, his wife

Because, the people, who once praised him, have become appalled by his action, while praising the Joker, for remaining poise, calm and professional.

See, the Joker will have the last laugh.

Because, it is the Fool or The Court Jester's job to make FUN of the King aka Will Smith, who played the role of KING RICHARD.

Why? Because, the Emperor HAS NO CLOTHES, meaning there are people, who are afraid to criticize something or someone because of their perceived wisdom or fame.

This concept is based on The Emperor's New Clothes"  a literary folktale written by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, about a vain emperor who gets exposed before his subjects, believing he is fully clothed. But, actually naked.

So, what role will you be playing...

Cause, Everybody plays the FOOL- SOMETIMES (bobbeethehater.blogspot.com)
