The new KFC sandwich...what do you think?!

Kentucky Fried Chicken has introduced a new "sandwich," that has no bun...just two deep-fried chicken patties with bacon and cheese between them. Wow. What do you think? Would you eat this?

There Is No Room for Racism

There Is No Room for Racism

It seems like a glaringly obvious statement, yet we still see racism raring it’s ugly head in America all too frequently. Again last night, after winning the Miss America title, Miss New York Nina Davuluri, was the victim of racism’s ugliness.

Nina is the first Miss America of Indian decent, who like her father, aspires to be a doctor. Sadly, immediately after her crowing, social media exploded with racist and hateful comments, even going as far as calling her a terrorist. 

Rather than celebrating, the newly crowned Miss America was forced to defend herself, saying that she would “rise above the comments." and that she considers herself, “first and foremost, American”. 

Racism’s ugly past must be the catalyst for us to continue to strive for change. Over the weekend, in Birmingham, AL., U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was brought to tears while reflecting on the murder of four young girls at the 16th Street Baptist Church that was bombed 50 years ago, that bombing helped launch the civil rights movement. Mr. Holder said, “hate must be confronted and defeated," and Alabama Gov. Robert Bently said that although his state “bears the ugly scars of a turbulent past," he declared, “Today, we choose to look past those ugly scars.”

The church’s pastor, Arthur Price, said the way that we do that is “love our enemies, and practice a love that forgives.” We, as Christians, must lead this charge to ‘confront and defeat racism.'  The words in the Bible’s book of Esther, must be something that we grab hold of, we must realize that, like Esther, “we are here for such a time as this." 

Abolitionist and author, William Wiberforce, in his book “Real Christianity," perhaps said it best, “You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.”
