I never meant to do this episode, so I don’t have a prepared post or a well-worded blurb. Yes, the Spirt spoke (mostly to Fr. Jabriel and Pr. Jimmie), so I tried to catch up. I hope you’ll do better than me and listen.
It’s rare we let our white selves be in places where we are on the same footing as our Black and Brown siblings, sisters, and brothers. It’s even more rare to let our white selves be in places where we are the minority, subject to Black authority, and beholden to Black hospitality and welcome.
Yet that is where I found myself this morning, invited to be part of the Blacks with Power podcast. I was invited to talk live with Pastor Jimmie and Father Jabriel, to see what laughter and irreverent discussion about race and dynamics we could share across the color.
It was a gift. They are a gift. And we share that gift with you now! Merry Christmas.

There is so much more to say and much more to discuss – come to the Racial Heresy group to be a part of the conversation.
