Monday Coffee Break: Human’s Race

So…@Starbucks succeeded at capturing our attention with their gutsy #RaceTogether initiative and are now making a smart move by tweaking their approach to the cause. Truth: We can’t ignore the fact that racism is real. We converse about all things inappropriate but are devastated by a race related conversation until there is a headlining injustice. If you could share your ideas on healing & improving race relations, no matter how grand or small, what would they be? We can talk here. Q Speaks & Listens. #IJQ #letzchat

HELP WANTED! Maybe…

Oh the many benefits and wonders the World Wide Web has placed at our fingertips. A world where travelers caught a glimpse of different cultures, but regular folk and dreamers only watched on the news and read about in the newspapers was now exposed. Not only are resources unlimited now, but celebrities are made overnight, injustices are revealed and to plainly state: everyone’s in your business. In my opinion, the greatest reveal is how we as a people are so compassionate and yet so unforgiving. Thoughts and actions that were once concealed under the “What happens in our house stays in our house” rule nearly cease to exist. Granted this exposure and worldwide involvement has saved many lives and evolved us, but I ask you this, are we overstepping our boundaries when we save someone who doesn’t want or feel they need to be saved? At the end of the day, we are our brothers/sisters keeper but do we save our fellowman and tell them “Deal with it; Trust us. You don’t understand right now, but you’ll thank us later after loads of counseling and prayer”? Your thoughts…
