Celebrate Christmas If You A Real G

Written by Adam Coleman

I spend a lot of my social media time debating with folks from various worldviews (i.e. Hebrew Israelites, Kemetics) and have picked up a number of Facebook friends that way. So around this time of year I find my timeline littered with Youtube videos, memes, and articles about whether or not Christmas is of pagan origins.

For those who don’t know, Colin Kaepernick recently elected to sit down during the National Anthem before a game in protest of what he believes to be oppression and injustice in America today. When asked about his act of protest, Kaepernick cited police brutality as a chief matter of concern that prompted him to speak out.
