The Fight to Rename a School: Pushing Further

DISD

  *Based on My Words/Speech at the February 13, 2018 Denton (TX) Independent School District School Board Meeting   Immigrants are of the lowest of classes.   Blacks should be banned from public facilities.   I’m simply not interested in racial equality.   I hope that you are as disgusted by these words as I […]

Go to Hell CBF.

Screen Shot 2018-02-11 at 11.51.52 PM

  Recently, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship reaffirmed their deeply ingrained homophobia. Repeatedly, the CBF has failed to champion inclusion and equality…just like their counterparts in the Southern Baptist Convention. What a bunch of spineless cowards. God has left the CBF and anyone with a shred of conscience should too.   On this occasion of dumbassticity, […]

What if Jesus had attended the National Prayer Breakfast?

Public Image

  Cold. Cold. It was so very cold. Jesus could feel the body breaking down. Every step seemed like it could be his last. Shelter after shelter turned him away. There was nothing to eat. There was nowhere to sleep. Eventually, he found a bridge. As the cars roared by above his head, Jesus cried […]

“Kelly is a Piece of Shit.” -Jesus

Public Image

  “Kelly is a Piece of Shit.” -Jesus   Revelation is magic.   Horrible smells seemed to be coming from every crevice of our home. I sniffed my way all around the house. I hadn’t checked the kids. Surely, it wasn’t one of the kids? I was expecting to find something dead. I kept sniffing. […]

Alone: On Being Human

  Does God remember me? Dust to dust. Breathe to breathe. I am God’s creation. I think. Does God remember me?   Truth was close. I could feel it. Now, I don’t believe it was ever close at all. Maybe I want to. Maybe I don’t. Truth has always been a liar.   Shots changed […]

Seeing John Battaglia

DPD

  The room was cold. It’s always cold in there. I was alone. Waiting. It seems that the purpose of prison is to wait. The seat was cold too. I laid my head on the little ledge. Sleep came quickly. I can’t remember if I dreamed or not. When you’re on death row, everything seems […]

Denton, Texas: The Noose / Racist USA

JH.

  People live. People laugh. People dance. People love Denton. Everything they could ever want and more exist within the city limits. Truth is a frightening thing. Words can make reality appear much different than it is. The veil is quite thin. When pushed aside, Denton looks very different. White people live. White people laugh. […]

Identity Implosion: The Failure to Be Human

    On most days, you will find us riding around Denton, Texas on a caravan of wheels. In order to accommodate our five children, I created a bike trailer capable of carrying everyone. Needless to say, we are a sight to behold.   The meaning of life is simple…to be human. In an age […]

The Money: A Parable of Sorts (Part 6/7 of 8): The Trial

              The records said that I pled out. I didn’t plea shit. Didn’t nobody care about me killing no nigger woman. While I’ve thought about it once or twice, I’ve come to the conclusion every time that the world is better off with one less nigger in the world. […]

At the end of Trump’s first year, I pray for revolution

      *This column originally appeared in the Dallas Morning News on Saturday, January 20, 2018 I woke up. Fear had nested in my bones. I couldn’t see. There was something downstairs. The words penetrated the darkness. “Trump” and “win” repeated incessantly on the forgotten radio. Shock exploded. Audio of the vulgar and profane […]
