Abe Cruz: ‘Forever Faith’ – In 14 Ways – http://MercyfulGrace.Blog

Abraham J. Cruz what a pleasure to meet with you in #In14Ways at last. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to get closer to know more about you. We thought this interview would never happen. You are such a busy successful inspiring entrepreneur. If you are not dripped in chocolate (Jay Leno) for your adoring fans, you are dripped in words of inspiration all over your (Forever Faith) brands ..’ So lets get started already in In14Ways ..’

1. How are you today?

I’m Blessed and Great every day, because there is no other option when you see light, and breath air. Amen!!

2. What was life like on millionaire matchmaker when we first saw you

Life at that point was unreal, and unbelievable, because about a year before that I was in prison, and I was told that. I wasn’t going to be able to accomplish anything, or be productive in life. I was in prison being told when to eat and when to sleep.

3. Has Patti changed your life for good with the one in the aftermath

Patti did a great job on working with me, but unfortunately it didn’t work out with the girl I met on the show. She was beautiful, and I hope she is doing well.

4. How has prison affected your focus

It was the biggest blessing of my life, because nothing I have today (physically, spiritually, financially, or mentally) would have come about without hitting rock bottom and going to prison. I was forced to lay on my back, so all I could see was up.

5. Advise for young entrepreneurs

To truly follow their heart and soul, and ask God for direction. Truly believe in God first, and believe in yourself second, and with that combination you can’t lose.

6. Your advise for anyone living a life of crime

Yikes..!! Hurry up and figure out your exit strategy, because I don’t think anybody decides they want to go into a life of crime. Speaking for myself I grew up poor, and wanted a better life for me and my family. And ultimately I know I made the wrong decision, but it was the quickest financial solution to all my financial problems. I would never advise to do it. Remember this… Fast Cash Fast Crash..!!

7. How has faith captured your imagination.

I fully believe in myself. I feel that I will be one of the most powerful men in the world some day, for many different reasons.

8. How have you managed to resolve diversity in America being Latino

I understand at time we are dealing with some racial tension, but I personally do not allow racism, or race, to influence or impact my daily life. I don’t have an ounce of hate in my body, except for idiots. And idiots come in all shapes, sizes, and races. Life overall is about loving, accepting, and encouraging each other.

(MercyfulGrace: Laugh – Laugh – Laugh – Love it !!! Genius. Thank you ..’)

9. Do you believe in after life

Wooh… That’s a good question. The majority of people out there would want me to give a definitive answer, because that’s what is expected in society. But me speaking truthfully, never even gave it a thought. My focus is becoming a better person every day, and doing everything I can to help this world in every way I can.

10. Where is home for you

I travel so much. Not sure where home really is…

11. Your ideal get away.

Heading to the beach. Quiet beach. Massage and relaxation all day long… and having sushi. I’m more on the simple side.

12. Who inspires you most

Faith is number one. There’s been a couple of people that triggered some inspiration as well while I was in prison. P.Diddy (Sean John), Jay Cutler (4 time Mr. Olympia), and Jim Rohn (Philosopher).

13. Your greatest legacy will be

That I cared about people. That I lifted up people when they were down.

Abe Cruz - MercyfulGrace Blog

14. Say a prayer for humanity.

Dear Father God, I come to you for the good and the bad, and today’s specific prayer is to bring humanity together. We are going through some tough, confusing times. Us humans don’t have the answers. So I turn to you, and ask You for direction. I ask you Father God to guide us, because we will only see improvement if we put all our faith in You Father God. I pray this to you Father God in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen

End of Interview

Thank you so much for the interview. You are truly a star and a consummate professional. I’ve picked up a few notes here personally. Goes to show. The best things in life are free and what will be will be. Patience is a real glorious virtue. Furthermore, like to add and end on this note: may God bless you real good. Amen !!!

The Ten Gaydar Commandments

Relgious Delusions - MercyfulGrace Blog.jpg

Straight men are secure in their sexuality and have nothing to prove

Some people will struggle with this post. Some relationships will see a decline while others will be greatly challenged. But I am here, sent by myself to deliver to you, the good news. To free those who are; from bondage. For there is no condemnation in Jesus. Amen !!!

Due Dilligence pays due dividend in the long run sustainably, unlike short cuts; that transgress the rights of others, in lieu of your long and distant objective, worthy of a long, road paved with eternal peace, love, joy and unwavering bliss..' – Anthony Everest #MercyfulGrace #RealTalk #AnthonyEverestMusic

A post shared by MercyfulGrace (@mercyfulgrace) on

The rest is a waste of good vibrations. As a savy, very open minded, super tolerant black man who has processed and seen the bullsh*t from different perspectives; called human sexuality hear me out.

1. All men are gay until proven straight.

2. Straight men are not homophobes.

School them - MercyfulGrace

3. Straight men are secure in their sexuality and have nothing to prove.

4. Men will stick it in anything as long as their friends don’t know (Thank you RuPaul for this one).

5. Your average man of the millennial is bi in denial but will justify it as okay if in a threesome with two of the! opposite sex. !!!

Great Point ..' #MercyfulGrace #MercyfulGraceDiaries #blackgirlskillingit #blackboyskillingit #Gender #Issues #Culture #Pride #Homophobia #Love #loveislove #hypocrisy #be #the #light

A post shared by MercyfulGrace (@mercyfulgrace) on

6. Alpha males tend to be bi and closeted and their wives know or protect them.

7. Sometimes gay men make great fathers when broken and woken up inside. Especially alpha gay men.

9. Some women are attracted to bi men and alpha bi men who will later deny they did not know they were; after having a family with them. I don’t believe them. Don’t believe them.

10. Threesomes with straight couples opens the door to swinging and more curious sexual deviance’s from mild to full blown gay fetishes, fantasies and eroticism.

Mathew 7:1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.

I always remind them that ‘Abraham, the Father of Faith’ had whore’s (Ketura) and Jesus’s Nan (Rahab) was a whore. Even Jesus’s best mate  (Mary Magdalene) was one. A whore.

Wickedness: H&M, Racism & Cops ..’

If your long and distant objective is worthy of a long road, don’t try getting there by short cuts that transgress the rights of others …’ – Whitney Houston

I gave vivid accounts so those who don’t see it can see it now ..’ – Aremuorin

The subliminal seeds of discord sown by western influence on African soils socio-politically; psychologically and subliminally; still makes it pandemic-ally possible to stunt the continent’s growth economically like witchcraft. Even, within the diaspora.

You then wonder why Africans don’t clock the game and unite. This is a mental war game etching away the very weaving fabric of humanity.

As long as white privilege is perceived and championed as the status quo, racism is going no where. Otherwise, white supremacists, would have fessed up their evil systemic lies by now to the whole world and to their own putting an end to the fasad.

Life is not white privilege - More @ MercyfulGrace Blog

White Privilege – More http://MercyfulGrace.blog

Africans are getting no reparations soon unlike the Jews until they learn self love, unity and put God first.

Like I said multiple times – ‘I don’t need the Pope to find God’. White Jesus can leave me alone now. I thrashed that in 2017 with 2017.

Christianity was in Africa before White Jesus showed up. So what the hell. Explain to me the demonics of slavery; it’s ebonics, and of the mind again? Anything that does not look like White Jesus is a threat to White Jesus.

I feel bad and awful for White folks who aren’t racist who just want to get on; and along, with everyone. It reminds me when I am running for the bus, upset-tingly getting stopped, or racially profiled as a drug dealer by White Jesus, and the police.

Anthony Everest - Racism - H&M

On boxing day I was a victim of a hit and run by a white male in a car with no break lights who ran off. On arrival of the Police (White Jesus) they declined to record the incident saying they don’t believe there was a collision.

Really? ‘I have a witness to it who is the reason why I am alive’ – I explained. I would have been crushed. My witness is the one who pulled me quickly out of the way. I got hit by the thigh and suffered, thankfully only minor injuries but ended in hospital – still.

H&M Racist Pic

Racism: H&M’s recent add campaign that left a sour taste in our mouth – yet again ..’

Police (White Jesus) said the culprits friend controls the cctv and there is no footage; that nothing is going to happen so I should stop wasting my time. He added that the crime is over. I am pretty sure when he runs someone over who looks like White Jesus or the Police the crime will be recorded, and believed.

Even the culprit came out of the car to admit he had no break lights that’s why he hit me before he ran off when I took his car plate registration no.

If I as a black man hit a white person (White Jesus) with a car with no break lights, and ran off, I’d be the one in jail and the there would be a cctv footage.

So when the new H&M ad campaign; with a black kid called the coolest monkey in the jungle; backlash erupted again with denials of racial innuendos of prejudice by H&M: propagated with the help of main stream media: I’m like – ‘Yea, yea – I believe Hitler is Mexican and he built the Eifle tower, too’.

But here is the thing we blacks will still potentially buy from H&M again; cuz we don’t listen, watch and learn like the Jews. It’s not the first time to experience this systemic below the belt racial jibes.

Some blacks are still going to buy designers and brag about them when some of those brands don’t even give a rats about them but their money. Taking from them the very tools they possess to build their own brands only to be used against them psychologically; buttressed with social stigmatization, and economic oppression.

Racsim3 - MercyfulGrace Blog

It does not get more racist than this ..’ More @ http://MercyfulGrace.blog

Whether you are black or white you should be outraged enough to feel empathy for humanity enough to warrant change for where peace, love and harmony reigns.

Gap Campaign - Racism - MercyfulGrace Blog

And you remember this campaign from Gap. Same old passive racism ..’ More @ http://MercyfulGrace.blog

May the love of God sooth again. Amen ..’

Here is H&M’s Apology:

“We would like to put on record our position in relation to the image and promotion of a children’s sweater, and the ensuing response and criticism.

Our position is simple and unequivocal – we have got this wrong and we are deeply sorry.

H&M is fully committed to playing its part in addressing society’s issues and problems, whether it’s diversity, working conditions or environmental protection – and many others. Our standards are high and we feel that we have made real progress over the years in playing our part in promoting diversity and inclusion. But we clearly haven’t come far enough.

We agree with all the criticism that this has generated – we have got this wrong and we agree that, even if unintentional, passive or casual racism needs to be eradicated wherever it exists. We appreciate the support of those who have seen that our product and promotion were not intended to cause offense but, as a global brand, we have a responsibility to be aware of and attuned to all racial and cultural sensitivities – and we have not lived up to this responsibility this time.

This incident is accidental in nature, but this doesn’t mean we don’t take it extremely seriously or understand the upset and discomfort it has caused.

We have taken down the image and we have removed the garment in question from sale. It will be recycled.

We will now be doing everything we possibly can to prevent this from happening again in future.

Racism and bias in any shape or form, conscious or unconscious, deliberate or accidental, are simply unacceptable and need to be eradicated from society. In this instance we have not been sensitive enough to this agenda.

Please accept our humble apologies”.

White Privilege – http://MercyfulGrace.blog

Conclusion:

After conversation’s with varied opinions and having a feel for the complexities within multiculturalism and race relations; in my personal view. I have learned that the collective acts of subtle, passive and subliminal racism left people of color to be passive themselves, and / or playing games to survive. A dangerous blurry line to thread. As for those who insist it does not exist. Hear this:

When the script is flipped watch how ‘White Jesus and her tribe(s)’ switch their narratives. However, when it’s an expression of people of color’s, lived chorused challenges; experience-wise, it’s always argued, or implied to be an over reaction by White Jesus and her tribe(s). Question is Why? Could it be guilt, denial or irrational fear?

Don’t come for me with it if you know you don’t want it. Keep it where the sun won’t shine. Too done with for that ..’ –

When black artistes stop rapping about ‘Gucci and Bitches’ on their records maybe the system will stop killing us!

Organised  Religions – White Jesus ..’

Organised religions are like people living in glass houses. They should not be throwing stones. Do not come for me or I will lay out your hypocrisies for you one by one ..’ Keep that dogma and narrative to yourselves and your bosses, bosses; smart enough to pimp your gullible ignorance all the way to the bank and back

I always wondered in the narrative of ‘White Jesus‘ how the heaven or earth did he have twelve disciples with English names? For someone who was born in the middle East. Really? Total white wash.

This is how slavery; and, of the mind, started. I am not disputing the disciples, but the names thou – are fishy as hell.  No pun intended. He was a fisher of men.

Perhaps, this is the reason why the sun rises in East and sets to the west ..’

The real Jesus came to set the captives free. ‘White Jesus’ on the hand was about power through appropriation of the truth via slavery of every fashion; economically,
mentally, psychologically, anthropologically and socially. These were just some of the vehicles.

The Arabian slave trade of the black-race counter-argument is inhumanely disproportionate comparatively, with the extent of the generational reverberation effects of the trans Atlantic slave-trade on the black-race, till today in my opinion.

Neither was it on the same scale. Jews saw reparations for the unforgettable diabolics of the Holocaust; unlike the black-race, for slavery. Blacks are still systemically shut down and told they are inferior.

When blacks were brutally dehumanized systemically via slavery they were forced to accept the religion of their slave masters. Their White God. Hence White Jesus. Jesus is not my problem. White Jesus is. It’s funny when you meet white’s who don’t even believe in him. You begin to wonder – why?

As a Black African it’s hard not to be traumatized by the lingering chains on the consciousness of blacks; religiously, all over the globe totally unbroken still believing in this ‘White Jesus’ as their God coming to save them.

Dear God. Mercy !!! Fcuk that narrative. No offense. Jesus is not white. If he is, I want a divorce. Jesus did not condemn anyone nor enslave anyone ..’

Jesus is love. Love is freedom. Love is God. That’s whom I believe. That’s my narrative. That’s my faith. At the end of the day religion is a business. It’s all about the money and the love of it is the root of all evil.

God told me he would use me to write about him. I heard him clearly. He did not send his Son Jesus to enslave, judge or deceive; nor condemn humanity. John 3 : 16 – 17. So. I begin to repeat.

25 Mind Boggling Facts about Social Media

Originally posted by 

Dan Silvestre

When I read this could not wait to share. So intriguing ..’ Enjoy !!!


Social media has taken the world by storm. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and LinkedIn are few of the insanely popular sites that are accessible to almost everyone around the globe. The reason for their immense success is the ability to connect distant people together.

Since its inception, social media has and still continues to amaze people with some of the astonishing facts related to it. The facts mentioned below will give you an insight into the power and the capability that the social media processes. 

Check out these amazing facts about social media and have your mind blown away! 

Facebook 
There are 219 million attempts per year on Facebook! Facebook is a huge social networking site, so big that hackers’ estimated amount of attempting to hack into personal accounts is 600,000… every day. Facebook is responsible for directing 23% of the web traffic of the entire Internet. 


Facebook approached MySpace, in 2004, to be bought off the market for $75 million. However, Myspace turned down the proposal. 
B2B companies have acquired 77% of their new customers only through Facebook.


The total user numbers of WhatsApp is around 700 million, Twitter with 310 million and Instagram with only 300 million respectively. If added up together, they would still not reach the Facebook’s total amount of users, and that is 1.65 billion! 

Instagram
Instagram was developed as an app only meant for iPhone users in 2010.
The total number of photos uploaded on Instagram has reached the mark of 21.9 billion photos, with 60 million photos being uploaded every other day. 
In 2013, Instagram launched its feature of video uploading and within the first 24 hours, 5 million videos were uploaded.


Instagram is considered to be the most important social networking site by 32% of the American teens. 
The most popular geotagged location is the New York City with, Time Square coming in the second place. 

Pinterest
41% of e-commerce traffic prefers Pinterest rather than Facebook, who remains successful at acquiring only 37% of e-commerce traffic
More referral traffic is generated by Pinterest than YouTube, Linked In, and Reddit combined. 


70% of its entire users are females. 
57% of its users have shown extra interest in food and related items’ pins making it the most popular category in Pinterest. Pinterest successfully generates 400% revenue per click than Twitter and Facebook.

LinkedIn
Around 41% millionaires put LinkedIn into daily use. The amount of LinkedIn users is increased by four users every two seconds. 

The number of Slideshare presentations uploaded on LinkedIn has approximately reached 20 million by 2015.


Since its beginning in 2003, more than 1 billion endorsements have been made on LinkedIn. (Though the authenticity of those endorsements is questionable)
Around 91% of the LinkedIn users utilize the free version. The rest of the 10% avails the paid upgraded accounts of LinkedIn. 

After learning these astonishing facts, it is not hard to see the influences of these social networking sites on the population. Around 80% of the world, the population has access to smartphones, which means that 80% of the population is constantly influenced and affected every other day.
