I AM A GOD.

I'm a God...

By Jamika Bee


Oh that Kanye! I think most of us can agree and say, Kanye says and does some wild shit. However, for me I can say he's onto something with this one. NOTE, my thoughts and perspective on this topic are my own. My intentions are not to influence yours but to share a dialogue. Now let's begin!

So first ignore the fact that Kanye is Kanye and let's play devil's advocate here. Why would Kanye say, "I am a God."? What makes him think he could say such blasphemy? What is the literal definition of blasphemy? Well, blasphemy is the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk. The key word here is OFFENSE. Who is offended by what is said about God? The people? Or God? Or better yet did God tell "the people" he (or she) was offended?  Are they now God's messenger? 

His "blasphemous" comment made people uncomfortable. So was he saying anything that took away from the power of the God people know? Was the audacity of Kanye, speaking of himself in such a high reference as their God, hurtful to them? Granted Kanye blatantly made the comment without explaining himself. By numbers it increased his popularity among the misunderstood. Which brings us back to the focus at hand, Why would Kanye say, "I am a god."? 

Kanye on a rant. 

Ponder this... what does God look like? Where is He or She? Does God have a race or nationality, a particular ethnic group? Have you ever seen God? No 
matter if you can answer these questions or not, each person who reads this will have a different answer. Let me say this, I don't have faith in God. In fact I don't believe in God. I KNOW GOD! How do I know God? Because I am a God! The question now is, "How am I, a child of God, and not be a God?". If my earthly father is a Smith, am I then a Jones? No, I am a Smith. My name is as my earthly father and mother. Therefore, how am I not as the Creator?  No, I am not THE God of the universe but I am the God and creator of MY environment.


Kanye tellin the truth while within a rant. 

In the book of John chapter 10, Jesus is being questioned by "the people" about his identity. They demanded to know, Are you the Messiah?, they asked. Jesus was cool, he said, I told you but you cats never believe me. See prior to the people's demands, Jesus was giving a teaching and they were not HEARING him. Their minds were so fixated on the ideal of him being the Messiah or if his words were blasphemous, that they were not listening to him. They then wanted to stone Jesus because they felt he was a man, who was making himself a God. But Jesus reminds them of Psalm 82:6, which says, "I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High." He so eloquently states, "Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?" SAY WHAT!?! Did he come with the clapback? Yep! So of course, naturally, the people were pissed and proceed to stone him. 

Again, back to the original question at hand, Why would Kanye say, "I am a God."? Maybe because Yeezus, oh I mean Jesus, told him he was a God. So the question is no longer, Why would Kanye say, "I am a God."? The question is, Why don't "the people" know this?

When only the Sistas are CANCELED!

New Blogger Alert!!! This post was submitted by the ever talented Seirra Pepin! *****
Drake’s Nice For What dropped just in time to be mine, and plenty of women’s Summer ‘18 anthem. What a thoughtful king. @Defend_Brooklyn said it best, the video has the Infinity Stones of Black women. But Aubrey’s female empowerment jam doesn’t exempt him from flaw.
Like many other rappers, he uses expletives to describe women. He’s belittled Kid Cudi’s mental health. Nevertheless, our problematic fave has yet to be canceled. Neither has Kanye West after his slavery comments, not really.

This isn’t about our Canadian Prince or Chicago’s troubled son. It’s about Black women and the nuance and forgiveness we deny them. Start the cancellation parades organized by forward-thinking millennials (like myself) that aim to diminish the platforms of Cardi B, Chrisette Michelle, Azealia Banks, Tina Campbell, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Think about how swift, and in some of these cases, impactful, backlash has be…

MUST READ: How to Emotionally Validate Children/Teens

Guess Post Alert!!! Many of you who follow us may remember that we interviewed health therapist, and "Dating With Dev" Site Creator Devon Estes, and it was BRILLIANT. She's been so gracious to share her expertise on an article that most parents and mentors will benefit from! Show her some love! ~ Capt SistaGurl

As a mental health therapist for teens and their families I find myself teaching emotional validation a lot. For the teens I spend much of their treatment expanding their emotional vocabulary, guiding them into identifying their emotions, helping them identify their needs associated with their emotions, and supporting them into acting on those needs in a healthy productive manner. For their parents, I’m often highlighting the connection between validation/invalidation and the issues they experience with the child, as well as how to help support the child navigate self-validation.  I also find myself debunking the myth that validation is ag…

YOU ONLY GET ONE VAGINA

I think it's especially important that when something is on my mind, I share it with my SG readers. Yall are my girls and therefore we must be able to have those conversations that aren't always popular for the betterment of womanhood. Your vagina, can be compared to no other vagina, it was carefully crafted just for your in divine splendor.  It's special. You are special. Here's the part that we so often forget and rarely point out though. As special as your Kitty Love Blossom is, it's only special to you! Literally just you.

Sometimes you may go to the ob/gyne and the physician will tell you how beautiful it is, and how firm your cervix is, but that's because they value those types of things. In real life. It's apart of their job.

Laura, why are…
