Black, Gay, and Bitter: Why So Bitter?

Image
During the President's State of the Union, I was tweeting and I noticed that there were a lot of bitterness from the Black Community. Especially those of my Black LGBT Family.  As the President mentioned his mourning concerning Ferguson and other tragedies against the Black Race, some stated that President Obama, is the new Black face of White Supremacy, while others were bashing him for not going into depth about certain issues of race, LGBTI Equality, and other things.  One must understand that President Obama is not a super hero nor is he Almighty Zeus. He is a human just like us. We must look within ourselves and push for change as well. We cannot sit on our asses and do nothing!!!!

As I sit and I write this blog, I am sleepy as crap and getting ready for bed.  I've had a pretty easy day and it hasn't really been eventful, thankfully.  However, today has really been a day of prayer for me.
  The last few days have been a challenge.  Many of you know the issues with my family and the fact that I've got a serious case of bitterness and anger.  I have really been praying and trying to find my faith again.  I had almost lost it.  Why?
  Well the reason being that the last few years I have been burnt by religious people.
