Even though I pretty much agree with what was said here, we can't forget that there are and have been MANY threads and understandings of Christianity from Ultra Right-Wing Fundamentalists to revolutionary practicioners of Liberation-Theology in Latin America. I see where you're coming from, but the description of Christianity that you painted here is of a particular brand, and does not (and cannot) represent ALL branches of the tree of Christianity.
Seeing as though Jezus himself was a black man, and the "religion" originated in the Middle East/Africa, there are many people who practice Christianity in those parts of the world who are not under the falsified spell of European Christian practices. For many more, Christianity is practised as and understood to be a faith of the oppressed.

CELEBRATING AUGUST AS ... aw fuck it, it's ME'SHELL MONTH up in this joint!
Are you free? Truly Free. Do you believe everything that you hear? Everything that you see? Can you tell me if you're free?
I try to tell folks, do you think if Elian, you know ... the little kid from Cuba ... was from Haiti, that we'd be having all this? If he was my color do you think we'd be having all this news shit? I don't think so. Or if he was a refugee from Rwanda do you think we'd be going through any of this? Wouldn't be such headline news. Do you believe everything that you hear and see? America's got you believing that Communism is right at your door, so boycott Cuba. Don't believe everything that you hear and everything that you see.
It's so sad. I get so sad some times. The only way to feel superior is to crush out the others. Cuz you sell your soul like you sell a piece of ass ... a slave to dead white leaders on paper. Welfare cases, rapists and hoes, all reinforced by videos and T.V. shows. Jail is a sancutary for the walking dead. It fucks with your head when every black leader ends up dead. Somebody said: our greatest destiny is to become white. But white is not pure and hate is not pride. Just cuz Civil Rights is law doesn't mean that you abide. So tell me ... are you free? -- Me'Shell Ndegeocello, from a live Web broadcast of "Dead Nigga Blvd."
