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 !!!

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.

Products Promoting Racial Bias & Stereotypes More @ http://MercyfulGrace.blog

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!

Today


My first day in la la land and I struck a good #friendship with this one ..’ 

Hollywood was so much fun. Miss you my friend like a brother from another mother 😍🤗😣

Giuseppe and Anthony @ http://MercyfulGrace.blog

The force’s are dark but the power of love is brighter. A spark and marker for all of humanity. To live in a world where you are taunted for the colour of your skin, is depraved wickedness for all of humanity ..’

I’ve stopped, trying to convince fools, now. I’m just here to tell them; that they are ..’

~ Aremuorin

Jesus’s best friend was a whore. He actually came from the house of whores. His nan, Rehab was a whore and great great great …. grandpa Abraham; before ‘Rahab’, the father of faith – had whores. One notably called Ketura.

God did not tell you to judge anybody. LGBT and the white or black race included. TBH. What qualifies you?
You are just a wretched sinner like them if not worse. So, today. I’m waiting for the moon to reflect the sun on this one.

Tyra Sanchez in 14 Ways

Tyra Sanchez – http://MercyfulGrace.blog

We met up with the other Tyra 🙂🤗😍. Need we say more. Slay. Slay. Slay. Still, we are bewildered we pulled this one off. God is awesome. We are truly humbled and blessed. Miracles do happen when you do believe ..’

Tyra is definitely one of our most all time favourite Queens from the Rupaul Drag Race franchise. This is a token of our love and thanks to her for the interview. Superb. We hope you do agree too. She is a world Class Act !!! Nothing but love ..’

We love Tyra Sanchez. Such a Brilliant Gifted Talent. Some Queens are struggling with one look. She’s knocking out 3 in one runway walk with the same outfit. It’s obvious why and where the trawls are from. Hater’s are gonna hate but God said no ..’

It takes one with a strong willed character to understand the genius behind navigating hate.

The Interview:

1. How are you today and to what do we owe this honourable pleasure.


Today I am super good. The sun is shining, my heart is beating and it’s another day to accomplish something more!



2. Who is Tyra Sanchez.


Tyra Sanchez is a fictional character. A figment of my imagination that I brought to life. Tyra is also the second season winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race.  



3. Is she misunderstood.


Tyra Sanchez is beyond misunderstood. People can’t understand her. They can’t label her. Can’t put their finger on it and that’s why they are so intrigued. 


4. Would life be different without her and how.


Life would be different without Tyra because I wouldn’t receive so much hate from online trolls. Also I probably wouldn’t have as much success as I do today. I’d totally miss financial stability and the joys of travel.

5. Is there something Tyra would like to say that she hasnt already said and what.


Bite me. 


6. What moves Tyra.


Hard work, dedication and determination are the things that move Tyra. There’s nothing sexier than a queen that knows what she wants and how to get it.


7. How important is faith and God to you especially on the show and now.


Faith is extremely important. I don’t know how I would’ve made it through all these years without faith. The ability to believe that something greater is out there or that something better is on its way. It’s like going through something and not having any worry at all because you know like you know that The Universe will make a way. 



8. Do you have anymore new dreams and ambitions.


I have tons of dreams and ambitions, however, I’m currently focused on one important dream at the moment. The release of my first musical album. Currently scheduled to be released in spring of 2018, my album speaks to the masses. Every detail, every lyric and every beat comes from my heart. I’ve spent my last summer creating and producing each track all on my own. I’ve put so much of myself into the music that I’m like an open book. But I know that it’s worth it and the fans will truly appreciate it.



9. How would you like to be remembered.


I’d like to be remembered as America’s Sweetheart. The sweetest person that you’ll ever meet, but be careful not to cross her because she can jump from America’s Sweetheart to Miss Bitch in 3.9 seconds.

Tyra Sanchez – More @ Http://MercyfulGrace.blog 

More Tyra https://youtu.be/sld3JFDt7dc


10. Where is home.


My home is not of this earth! I don’t belong here and this place is only temporary. My place is in the heavens, in the kingdom, next to our creator. But for now we’ll settle with Los Angeles, CA. 


11. Favourite & Worst moments on DragRace.


I think my favorite moment of Drag Race is during the bridal challenge. Every competitor formed an alliance and tried to have me removed, but evil never wins and it only led to my triumphant victory.

I think my worst moment was Season 5 reunion. I gave so much focus in helping another queen that I didn’t put any attention into myself. Time flew by and the next thing you know I was rushing to complete my appearance and by the looks of things, it was really terrible.

Tyra Sanchez – http://MercyfulGrace.blog


12. What is love to you.


Love is indescribable. It’s like an ultimate feeling of happiness. Love is me. Love is you. We are love. 


“Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”


13. From one Queen to another – ‘Would you like say something to the Queen of England’.


Not really. No disrespect to the Queen, but I don’t know much about her to send her a message. 


14. If you were to say a prayer to heal the world how would it go.


Dear Lord, Please protect the children, make strong the weak, remove the evil in power and heal the hearts of hatred. May you bless those filled with love. Together may we progress and move forward in life and in love.
