Michelle Obama’s Speech At Oberlin College: A Sermon amongst Sermons Every American and Citizen Of the World Should Hear.

Socrates once said, “I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.” At the Oberlin College, Dr and First lady Michelle Obama called for the thinking mind of the students in particular and America as a whole. During her Graduation speech, she said everyone now wants to build, “…A community of likeminded folks and tune out all of the noise. We feed our twitter feeds with voices that confirm rather than challenge our views. If we dislike someone’s Facebook post, we unfollow them; we just unfriend them.”[1] That is the utopic world that currently bedevils this country. She continues, “In the real world, there are people who hold their opinions just as passionately as you do.” Every child should be taught this as they grow up. We are too intolerant for a supposedly “civilized" society. If someone disagrees with you, they call your job for you to be fired. If you are not fired, you are frozen. Where will they call if you don't have a job? If a teacher reads a poem that has a different taste, he is fired.[2] If someone said that he does not approve of the homosexual lifestyle, the LGBT community rallies for him to be fired.[3] If you say that you support homosexuality and abortion, the conservatives will also set fire on your back. If you are a Democrat, you hate the Republicans, and if you are a Republican, you hate everything Obama, even when some of his policies benefit your own family.
Aristotle once said, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." Can we then say that we are educated when we cannot entertain thoughts we don’t accept?  Unsurprisingly, if a parent does not like the Pintrest of a teacher, she requests that he or she be fired.[4] People are forced to take fake names to voice their opinions in 2015. This time they are virulent because there is a big gap between the ghost name and the individual. Sometimes when people use their real names, there is at least sympathy or restraint from saying hurtful things to others they don’t know. No wonder marriages go kaput because the couples cannot debate to a consensus. While in school, many were never taught to deal with kaleidoscope of opinions. Where then is your education? It is no secret that principals and deans check the social media accounts of future teachers before employing them. Consequently, if they disagreed with the candidate, no matter his or her qualification, they will not hire that individual. In other words, they trample underfoot Voltaire’s caution to, “Think for yourself and let others enjoy the privilege of doing so too.”  All who prevent others from thinking are functional illiterates and not educators.
According to Plato “The most effective kind of education is that a child should play amongst lovely things.”  The interaction with different ideas is the lovely thing, plaything that every child in a school should play with. It is important for people to know that if you do not make people to think, you are not teaching them anything. A man “becomes a philosopher after he gets married to a bad wife” because he is now transcending his world of idealism into one of realism. The problems that did not exist now exist, and abstract knowledge becomes concrete experience as he reasons in his mind to reevaluate his values, if at all they make sense. It is high time parents and everyone else memorize that society is not an automaton; it is like Balaam’s horse. If pressed too hard, it will kick of its master. That is why there is a lot of rebellion today because truth was sheltered from the people, or they were kept from thinking. Rebellion comes because the oppressed wants to be free. This time around, it is the mind that is seeking to be free.
Many have been raised up to be the taskmasters who accept only acquiescence or the puppet masters who pull the strings from afar. I don't agree on many of Obama's social policies, but I cannot take that as an excuse to hate him or talk less of the wife, even when the things she is saying are true. If someone gives an opinion you don't like, give yours and let the audience you are trying to convince decide.
Initially, the conservatives fought against racial discrimination, and they also fought to increase the Age of Consent to 14 from 7 in Delaware and 10 in California respective. Unfortunately, it would seem with time values and priorities have changed. The Christians and Conservatives in America must do more with integration. No one should be hated for thinking or looking differently from us. The school is an academic environment, so it should be opened to all thinking. Parents should teach their kids the right thing at home, so they will make a better choice when they come to school. It is because my parents exposed us to different ideas as we were growing up that I have been able to stay tolerant, no matter what philosophy you espouse. I will give you 5 personal examples which are public records because some of you are used to telling lies that you think everyone is dishonest. You could verify the verifiable if you need to do so.
I am sure that you have read me say several times that Islam is inherently a very violent religion. That does not mean that I hate Muslims. In 2004, my Muslim neighbor, Ali had left the kids (13 and 10 years old) home with the wife. The wife went to the store to buy grocery and one of the kids had mistakenly called 911 because he heard about calling 911. He was just from Africa, so he was excited with having a phone in his hand. They have told him to call 911 if he was in danger, so he called for no apparent reason. When the police came, they saw scars which were traditional incision marks for protection, so they misjudged that the kids were being abused. They called Department of Children and Family services (DCFC). The kids were taken away from them for almost one year. They were Muslims, and they were my neighbors. I decided to intervene as their primary character witness. The judge was amazed that a Christian was a witness for a Muslim. It showed that the couple were really good people. Just because they were Muslims did not make them bad people to me.
One of my ex-students unfriended me on Facebook because I said that homosexuality is a deviant lifestyle that God prohibited. He labeled me a “bigot” uttering, “hate speech”. A few years ago, a teacher called Sanford was accused of choking a child. I knew that he did not do it. I also knew that he was a homosexual man. However, when I heard that he had been suspended pending investigation, I called him and asked him if he wanted me to be his character witness. He made arrangements with his lawyer, and I went to face the Board on the day of his trial. He was so happy because he did not believe I could stand for him, after all we have had some debates with him. When I faced the board, I told them that I am a Christian who is against homosexuality, so I could not support him for any other reason than the fact that I knew his character. I knew the victim too he was accused of choking. He had asked me one time if I was gay, and I said no I wasn’t. Then he said, "thank God you are not like Mr. Sanford.” I also knew that the teacher could not do it. The saddest part about it was that all the other teachers (even the gay ones) who knew and mingled with Sanford refused to stand for him because of the backlash of testifying for a gay man. One of the teachers told me that the principal wanted him to go “because you know, he likes men.” It is no more his skills but his personal life that is being evaluated. Who then is the bigot and hate speech carrier: me? What type of society are we building? Simply because he is gay does not make him a criminal, but simply because I say that i homosexuality is a deviant lifestyle doe snot make me a bigot. Simply because a woman is wearing a transparent dress with no underwear does not make her a slut or a call girl.  
Another time I was talking with some members of the LDS (Mormon Church) when a neighbor waited until they were gone. She came and asked me with bemusement what I was talking about with those people. I asked her if there was anything wrong with them, and she raised the issues of polygamy, control and clique tradition. Then I asked her if they have hurt her personally? She said no. I asked her if she had visited them or read anything from them. She said no. I said, in so far as they are encouraging people not to do evil, I will support them. I don’t need to think like them. Romney is a Mormon and Holyfield is an evangelical. They teamed up for a charity boxing match to raise money.[5] The money they raised was going to help Charity vision: a nonprofit that helps children to see.
The real world needs tolerance and cooperation for better results. If you think that you are holier than another person, try to help them to achieve that standard, rather than hand them over to the devil. I do acknowledge that the homosexuals and the Atheists are becoming more and more very intolerant. If you are not a member of a given religion, they will not hire you. Sadly, some Mormon members want to hire only Mormon members. Notwithstanding, we must still do our share to foster tolerance as Christians. 
One time, one of my students gave me an invitation to attend their church. It was a Jehovah’s Witness gathering. I went there and talked with the parents and the people. She was very happy, and her church members were very appreciative of my presence. It is like going to their football games or sports activities each time I am invited.
Another time one of my students told me that she was a witch and would like to teach me witchcraft. I told her that I cannot tell her to change, but I don’t practice witchcraft. I told her that I was willing to debate about it if she desired, or she could bring the best of their members or her parents to debate with me. She looked at me and then asked me why I would not like to be wizard. I explained to her, and then she turned and said to me, “I am sorry; I did not know that you were a Christian. I hope you do not hate me now. I told her that she was fine, and that if she felt concerned that I was treating her differently, she should let me know. I told her that I was still opened to any debate with her or her parents. She told me that her parents don’t know that she is a witch. I did not treat her differently from the way I treated her because it was her right to think and believe what she wanted. God will shifter through the goats and the sheep or the chaffs and the wheat; that is not my job. I am merely a mortal sinful man. She said, ‘I wish all my teachers were as open-minded as you are.”  Many people like others to listen to them, but I wonder if they are willing to listen to others.
During a Town Hall meeting at the City College of New York, Ken Adelman was disappointment with Mandela for his models of human rights promoters like Castro, Gaddhafi and Arafat. Mandela told him that, “one of the mistakes that some political analysts make is to think that their enemies should be our enemies.”[6] In that same Town Hall meeting, in an attempt to respond to the executive director of the American Jewish Congress: Mr. Henry Siegman, Mandela in a paraphrased version told him that the ANC was not ready to accept Svengalis. He was right because a philosophical gathering should not be close-minded. Mandela showed that he was free because he could think freely and also let others do same and the schools are not drone centers where people sit afar to pilot; every child and teacher should be the pilot of their own drone. 
Furthermore, I must place this caveat, repressing freedom of speech is fighting against God, and God will not sit silent against you. I have seen what God has done against those who have persecuted me just for my ideas. To ask for someone to be fired from their job because they said something you do not like is the same as revenge, and that makes you a participant in their evil. Yours is to rise above their evil. There are people who have treated me so badly that if I had complained, they would have paid with their jobs or even their freedom; however, vengeance does not belong to me; it belongs to God. 

Until then, people should not be persecuted for their opinions in 2015.

Angelina Jolie’s Mastectomy: The Conflict Between Man's Wisdom Versus God's Wisdom.

               In March, 2015, the New York Times announced to the world that Dame Angelina Jolie has undergone a preventive double mastectomy to save her from cancer. The free Dictionary defines mastectomy as the surgical removal of the breast for the treatment or prevention of breast cancer.”[1]  This year, she took out her ovaries and fallopian tubes to preempt against cancer.[2] It would seem to me that the more humanity gets enlightened, the more they think they are like God. They are borrowing from the devil’s old lies. Next time, she will cut off her legs and then her hands and finally her head to keep her away from cancer. What will Angelina Jolie cut off next? What should those who have depression in the family cut off: their minds or just take out their brains? While prevention is a concept buttressed in the bible, the bible encourages us to live by faith and not by sight. This article will undercut her arguments for her act through psychological, biblical and medical knowledge and will propose a better way of prevention
Our own UN envoy is living by sight rather than faith. While her act may be plausible in the eyes of the godless and faithless, it is a very ungodly act to be totally discouraged. Amy Robach and Robin Roberts had breasts cancer but were healed and are cancer free now. The man who was lame for 40 years and began to walk, or the woman who suffered from cancer for almost 12 years before being freed show that there is room for miracles.
Jolie was told by her doctors that she carries “a mutation of the BRCA1 gene, which sharply increases her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer.” Her fears could be founded because her mother (Marcia Lynne Bertran) died of cancer at the age of 56. After she had the surgery, she received fillers and implants. However, she added a caveat that surgery may not be the right decision for every woman. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons lists a dozen complications that may arise out of breasts fillers and implants.[3] Man was made perfect, but he had sought his own inventions (Ecl 7:29). In other words, it is not the omega code to breasts and ovarian cancers. If cancer or any diseases runs in a family up to the fourth generation, that is a generational curse. Consequently, generational and hereditary diseases could only find a solution in God’s deliverance. Otherwise, what should those with diabetes do? Should they just empty every pint of blood from their bodies?
Her purpose of doing it was to avert breast cancer, and her purpose of telling the world was that women all over the world could extricate themselves out of the breast cancer quagmire. After her announcement, a couple of stars like Sandra Lee, Rita Wilson, Samantha Harris, began coming out that they were going to take the surgery. Jolie was not the first woman to do a mastectomy because women like Christina Applegate, Giuliana Rancic, Zoraida Sambolin had done it, but Jolie is the first with this preventive mastectomy. There are some reasons why this act must be discouraged.
Our bodies don’t belong to us despite the dackdrop of the popular feminist slogan, “My body, my decision.”The Bible states clearly that our bodies belong to God (I Cor 3:16-17). No mortal owns their body; God owns every body, so Angelina Jolie cannot just alter her body the way she wants. What shall it profit Angelina Jolie if she can mortify her body, but she cannot mortify sin? If our bodies do not belong to us, then we are in a borrowed body and will therefore give it back. As such, we walk by faith and not by sight because we will have to one day meet God who gave us the body, and we will give account on how well we used it (2 Cor 5:6-10). Sicknesses caused by disobeying God’s word are several times not seen by the naked eyes. For example, when people eat communion while living in sin, they may be sick (I Cor 11: 29-30). That sickness could even be cancer. Cutting parts of their bodies to preempt will be for no avail. The cause of their sickness is spiritual. The key to a healthy living is not to incise our organs but to obey to the scripture. I Tim 4:8. Corinthians 8:13-15; Rom. 1:21-23. It should be noted that, the godless we become as a society, the more unhealthy and sick we become. 
Medically, stress can double breast cancer  as we read here, “Breast cancer is largely a disease driven by the hormone oestrogen, and it is possible that feelings of stress could cause changes in hormone levels which then affect healthy cell growth within the breast.”[4][5]She may take away her breasts, ovaries and fallopian tubes, but if she lives a stressful life, cancer will not sleep far from her. Divorce has been proven to increase the risks of breasts cancer too.[6] Jolie's own mother (RIP) was legally married only for 5 years. The rest of the time, she had concubinage and boyfriends. Those numerous breakups could have precipitated her bad health because breakups cause bad health. Consequently, Jolie's risk of breasts and ovarian cancers could have been due to her lifestyle of changing men and perhaps women. She might want to start thinking about living in this marriage with Brad Pitt for better or for worse rather than follow in her mother's footsteps. It has been proven that the abuse of prescription pain medications, talk less of illicit drugs “hijack” your brain.[7] When the brain is altered, one requires more drugs and the more drugs, restrict blood flow into the brain which limits ones’ ability to fight diseases or the regeneration of cells.
Psychology teaches that that negative gossip affects negatively our health. Binocular rivalry, “highlights the brain's ability to shape our experience, even beneath our awareness.”[8] Consequently, as people spend time gossiping others, they plunge themselves into wanton and reckless hatred and subsequent ill health that leads them to their graves or some egregious sickness. The best way to deal with that will not be by cutting off your tongue; it will be by living in the spirit because no one can tame the tongue (James 3:8).
In some places, HIV has killed way more than breast cancer. Should those who think they will have HIV cut off their penises and remove their vaginas? Consequently, if people lived according to God’s prescriptions, they will escape premature death or life of valetudinarians. You can take away all your breasts, but you still leave other organs to be attacked by cancer if you are still smoking: whether cigarettes or weed or doing other illicit drugs and abusing prescription drugs.
To be diagnosed earlier does not negate the existence of a disease, and the treatment thereof may be cheap but it will still be costly. The best way of prevention is to avoid living lifestyles that will promote sickness.  Would Jolie then cut off her head if she found out that she will have brain cancer? Those who foresee themselves with lung cancer can just go ahead and take out their lungs. That is where the folly of her act ends. Jolie’s mind to bless the world is more suitable and healthier than the one who seized the men of other women. That renewed mind is more valuable than a more renewed body.
Our focus should not be how long we live, but where will spend eternity since our life on earth is like vapor anyway. Jolie can chop off all her body parts, she will not live eternally. That is vanity of vanity and all is vanity.
Christians sing, “All to Jesus I Surrender”, But they have surrendered nothing. Death is a constant in the human body since the day we were born. Entropy shows that we were born towards degeneration rather than towards regeneration. It is the human mind and spirit that must regenerate. That only retards the degenerative process of the body. God gave the Sabbath for people to rest, but due to our race in the pursuit of the American Dream, many are slaves to jobs so they could be counted. No wonder we are a society of valetudinarians. Many are working but cannot even enjoy the money. The quest for money has ensnared them and paid them back with unhealthy minds and bodies (I Tim 6:10). By listening and undergoing the double mastectomy, Jolie upholds the wisdom of men above the wisdom of God; she underscores medical knowledge above the wise counsel of God. Before medicine, God existed, for God created medicine and the doctors who practice medicine.

Should the School System Have Fired The Teacher For Engineering Her Students To Write A Letter To Abu-Jamal?

The anecdote is that Marylin Zuniga, a third grade teacher at Forest Street Elementary School in Orange County, New Jersey, was suspended for asking her students to write get well letters to Mumia Abu-Jamal, a former member of the black Panther’s Party who was convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer called Daniel Faulkner in 1981.[1] This article will not attempt to prove the guilt or innocence of Abu-Jamal, but it will focus on the wrongness or rightness of the actions of the teacher. As usual, we will look at three aspects: American law, The Bible and professional ethics to form our arguments.
I will just summarily paraphrase excerpts from an article written by AELE Monthly Law Journal.[2] The Supreme Court decisions defended the rights of the inmate to send and receive mails. Pell v. Procunier, #73-918, 417 U.S. 817 (1974); Procunier v. Martinez, #72-1465, 416 U.S. 396 (1974). Inmates have the right to receive publications like books, newspapers and or magazines from the outside world (Thornburgh v. Abbott, #87-1344, 490 U.S. 401 (1989). The only restriction is on inmate to inmate (Turner v. Safley, No. 85-1384, 482 U.S. 78 (1987). The kids were not inmates. Therefore, legally, there was nothing wrong with the kids sending letters to Abu-Jamal. The next step will be to look at her act biblically. 
People always tell me that we cannot talk about the bible as a canon for morality because not everyone believes in God. Unfortunately, there is not a single person on earth who is perfect, so we have to look out of the human race to establish our morality, and that will be God. The only book we know to have been established by God as basis for morality is the Bible. Thus, we will peruse through to see what it says in this situation.
Jesus said, "…Do good to them that hate you (Mt 4:43)."  There is nothing bad in the kids writing letters to Abu-Jamal, even if we all know he hated us to a point where he killed a police officer. The commission is to do good, even to our enemies, including Abu-Jamal.  Solomon had counseled people to do good to their enemies (Prov 25:22), and Paul reiterated the philosophy when he said, "Therefore, if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head (Rom 12:20).”  When Solomon encouraged people to do good to their enemies, he did not exempt Abu-Jamal. If the intent of sending those letters was to do good to Abu-Jamal, then the act correlates with Christian ethos. Her act teaches her students the virtue of forgiveness. It is still our obligation to do good to Abu-Jamal, even though we all know he is a violent criminal. By disciplining the teacher, the school implies that her act was morally wrong. In that case, they allow themselves to be overcome by evil.
Paul told the Romans to instead overcome evil with good (Rom 12:21). As long as God and his word are concerned, humans must acquiescently obey because although the way of God may not seem right, the end thereof is life.  
             Our last step will be the The New Jersey Uniform Code of Ethics.[3] There is nothing in the code that prevents her from creating such an assignment. Look, it will not be any different from killing an innocent person simply because you hate their associations or company. We should teach our kids forgiveness. In addition, Zuniga's actions will bolster the creativity and writing skills of the kids. As Christians, we are morally bound to speak and defend the truth, even when we don’t agree with the individual.

Until then, the teacher should be reinstated and the discipline erased from her record because she did nothing wrong.

Who is Important?

Some are important, but others are not important
The useless burn time to gossip the useful
Busy businesses protect from the busybodies
 Their crushes cry the sight of the important
But the important know not their names
Some memorize the whereabouts of others
They dream dreary life of the important
Yet the important hate their depressed dreams.
Less important cannot cope without the important
Yet their admiration aliments the ego of the important
If the less don’t admire the important
The important don’t surpass the less.
None is more important and none is less important.

“What does the Bible say about older women marrying younger men? I mean, what do you think about Cougars?”

Look, the Bible does not say anything about it. I don’t see anything bad with that because I don't even think the bible is against it either. People should not blame the women for going out with younger men because these men usually make the first moves. Those guys usually lie about their age just to get the woman. They are the ones who wooed these women. By the way, an older woman who has everything under control is more understanding. Furthermore, love has no age limits and love knows no age difference. The easiest way of sidelining the trauma of a bad marriage is to get involved with a wild wind relationship that sweeps you away from the pains of the past and in such a relationship, the younger man becomes the deuse ex machina who copiously provides the delectation eluding you. The attention the younger man will show you for the short period will surpass anything you have ever seen your whole life. There is no amount of attention and love a man who does not have to work or fend for bread for himself or his family cannot provide to a woman. However, I will show you some insights I got when I visited Mexico (experience), from successful married couples (reality) and what the Bible says (biblical).
Women mature faster than men, and the men live by sight rather touch. The man quickly loses interest in the woman as her physiognomy depreciates than the woman loses interest in him. Just 2 days ago, I read from The Telegraph that Jane Fonda complaining that in Hollywood, men only love younger women. It may end up leaving the woman lonely in her later years when she truly needs someone. To date a younger woman requires a lot more than it requires to date a younger guy. Most younger guys only want sex. Once they have it, they wander to oatfields like someone on soukougou. on the other hand, the older woman has the world under her feet, except love that has eluded her. She maintains the man; the man does not have to maintain her. She is the Svengali! Most young men in cougar relationships never seem to be in that relationship because you will hardly hear them tell the woman, “I love you.” What is love then if the man can never tell his lady, “I love you?” That is because those words if said in all honesty, do come with commitment which the tomboy is not ready to give.  
 In 2007, we went to Mexico to learn Spanish. I met a couple of teachers during our visits. I was always curious to ask the women who were divorced why they were divorced. Many of them told me that their husbands ran away with younger women. Biologically, women mature faster than men and having a younger man requires a lot of patience on the side of the woman because they will not be on the same level mentally. Their level of discourse or conversations is usually very short and of low quality.
Nonetheless, the advantage of having a younger man could outweigh the disadvantages because you could have much more good time in activities and sex too which the older men cannot provide. Remember that the woman is looking for thrilling adventures at this time. Most of the older guys are struggling to get it up, talk less of maintaining it up for longer stretches. They have a hibiscus which is beautiful to see, but they don't have a mimosa which will wake up when touched. If a woman has a huge sex drive, it is advantageous to date a younger man. Other than that, I don’t think it is a wise idea.
A younger man showing an interest in an older woman makes the woman feel very special because the guy has something he wants from the woman, so it will be attention 24/7. It looks odd to the society, but it is not biblically wrong. There is neither a biblical precedence nor is there any prohibition. In the biblical times, mostly men asked the woman out because of the culture back in the days, but things are different now. We are in a different era. Therefore, if the Lord has not given an opinion, man is unqualified to opine on that topic.
The Bible says that if two do not agree, they cannot walk together (Amos 3: 3). Those who have been married for 50 years and above have always told me that the secret is that they communicate together, they create common activities together, and they are patient with each other, no matter the frequency of their failures. Age really has no role to play in love because love is a bond in spirit that is physically administered in friendship. If their spirits bond well, nothing can put them asunder. If the man does not see a future with the woman, the relationship will only end with the bedroom. They must plan a common future. The woman must mean more than just a cougar; she must be part of him and him part of her.  The most important point will be for them to have common morals or virtues. It is useless for the woman to be against adultery when it is not a big deal to the man. If your problem is sex, and you are an older lady, it would be wise to marry a younger man. He wants your money, and you want his juice to rejuvinate you, so each should give generously. Therefore, I really do not see any problem.

Until then, love knows no bounds and should not know age difference.

The Six Abusive Fathers and Four Madwomen

Six sick abusive fathers
Met four madwomen on the internet.
Six sick abusive fathers neglected their children.
Four madwomen did not have any children at all.
The Six sick abusive fathers had neglected their wives.
The four madwomen went to visit the six sick abusive fathers.
The six sick abusive fathers cultivated veggies for the 4 madwomen.
The 4 madwomen ate the veggies and ran their mouths all day long.
They fought everyday with righteous men who could teach them.
Internet too small for them, but therein they incessantly scribbled rubbish.
It was their curse they got from eating the veggies from six sick abusive fathers.
It was their curse they got from feeding the madwomen with wives’ veggies.
Abusive fathers who share their wife's veggies with madwomen would be cursed.

Mad women who eat the veggies of sick abusive fathers' wives will be cursed .

NB. This is a social sonnet against husband or wife snatching.

My Uncle: Uncle A.

Uncle A was born from the honorable Kingdom of Bachuo Ntai.  He was a very literate business owner living in Douala. He was married with two kids. There was not a single Manyu man who did not know him. He was a braggadocio but a kindhearted fellow who will give you the shirt off his back and the shoes off his feet. When he came to a party, he will dance and was always the last to leave not only the dance floor but the party house. People began to infer that his marriage had problems.  Perhaps due to his kindheartedness, God decided to visit him. A few days to his 65th birthday, he won the lottery. He thought to himself that he had suffered a lot, so it is was time for him to enjoy his manna from heaven.
He pondered about traveling, but Africa had become too small for him because he had visited most of those countries. He had a lady in every country he visited too. That is why, no matter how much money he made, it was difficult for anyone to see the fruits thereof. Consequently, he decide to travel to London where he had never been. His brother's son, Arrey was married to a white British. The wife and the kids knew that he was coming, but they did not know how long Uncle A was going to stay. Uncle A was the short form of his middle name. They showed him a room, and he put his paraphernalia there. They showed him where he could shower, and he did. After that, he went to the table.
The wife had cooked plantains and chicken. His nephew, Arrey Tabe Nkwai had two children. Both joined them as was their dinner tradition. The woman put six pieces of plantains in one large bowl and 5 pieces of chicken in a smaller one. The chicken soup was made of tomatoes and they called it stew. The nephew’s wife said the prayers and began to serve them. She took two drumsticks and put them in Uncle A’s plate. She took the rest and shared to each of them a piece each. Only Uncle A had two plantains. He looked around and thought that if he quickly ate his share, the nephew’s wife will add some more. He finished eating his but nothing came. He realized that his nephew was fooling around with his own plantain, so he picked it from his plate. The wife looked at him with an angry bemusement, but she said nothing. The kids were just talking, so he grasped their plantains each and even took the drumstick from one of the kids. She grasped it back and said, “No uncle, that is mine!” Uncle A retorted, "I am still hungry, and you all are here playing with food."
The woman politely told him that that was all they had. Uncle A told them that he did not come to London to starve himself to death. He could not understand why they were not feeding themselves well. He called home and explained how the nephew’s wife was starving their nephew, so he will die for her to inherit property. The whole place went crazy over properties the man did not even have. He had nothing. The home they were living in had a lien on it.The parents began to run from one witchdoctor to another, and they visited one fortune teller to another. The entire village was buzzing with anger and rumors. The wife had explained to him that they did not make much money, so they ate very little too. He still did not like the explanation. 
The next day, while the kids were at school and the couple had gone to work, Uncle A went out and stopped a taxi that took him to the grocery store. He chattered food with the lottery money. When the couple came home, they saw what he had bought. He explained to them that it was his usual way of eating.  They were eating and everybody was happy. His nephew explained to him that, if he bought food this way; the way he just bought, then him and his family would be homeless very soon because they did not make much money.
A few weeks later, he went back to Bachuo Ntai. He had chattered a lot of things and goodies that he shared to many friends and relatives. After some time, he was back to his old ways. He had burnt out his entire lottery money. When he was dying, he did not even have a mere 30,000 CFA to take him to the hospital so he could buy medicine. He died as if he was a man who had never touched money. If you live as if there is no tomorrow, there may be none for you. 

Until then, beware how you spend your money.

Mayweather is the king of Defense and Boxing’s Grand Master

A few years ago, I wrote that Floyd “Money” Mayweatherwas the face of clean boxing. He single handedly cleaned the sports unlike the MMA, yet I have never seen an athlete whose mastery of his craft engenders such a schadenfreude for his demise. If Newton invented modern science, and Einstein made the greatest scientific discovery, Mayweather was a defensive pugilist who had no comparison with his contemporaries. He is such an oxymoron in whom love and hate confluence, but hate outweighs the love. Mayweather is like the children of Israel; the more the enemies hated them, the more God prospered them. His flamboyant lifestyle has many misconstruing that he does not know God. It could infer that every poor person will go to heaven. Mayweather knows God, albeit not in the way that many will want him to know Him. Manny even presumptuously declared, “The God I serve will deliver him into my hands.” That as you all know; no matter how many times Manny prayed, God did not hear his sanctimony.
Once I heard Manny’s boasting, I prayed to God to anoint Mayweather the more. After his victory, he gave thanks first to God in whom he owes his victories and safe passage in the ring. Surprisingly, they made Manny Pacquiao the angel. The same Manny who initially refused taking blood tests. The same Manny who was accused of going out with multiple women. The same Manny who requested to take “anti-inflammatory injection in his dressing room before the fight.” Who knows if he took them in other fights before throwing 700 punches?
Nonetheless, Mayweather’s haters were possessed by Nemesis- the goddess of revenge, so they dreamt to see him knocked out cold. Had Manny knocked out Floyd Mayweather, no one would have said the fight was boring. It is boring only because Mayweather won. They paid to watch him beaten. They did not pay to see his opponents; otherwise, his opponents would have been generating the pay per view numbers that he generates. They merely paid to see someone beat him, so they can say that he is a coward who only beats women, although it was a lie.
Sometimes it is not good to have hatred in your heart because it clouds your judgment. Sean Ingle of the Guardian.comwrote that Mayweather fought a depleted Oscar De La Hoya, Mosley, Ricky Hatton and Cotto etc., but Manny Pacquiao was supersonic in their destruction. The foolishness in this though is that Mayweather fought these guys way before Manny Pacquiao. In other words, Pacquiaover fought Mayweathers’s .leftovers.” In addition, he says that Maytweather fought a pacquiao who is already too old, but he forgot that Mayweather is actually older than Pacquaio with 18 months.
Before the Mayweather Pacquiao fight, many people knew that Mayweather will be knocked out, and 58 % believed that Pacquiao was going to win. As such, many went to the MGM Grand, some bought the fight, and others pirated the fight to be living witnesses of Mayweather's destruction.  They created an evil pedestal as a woman abuser on which they hoisted him so that his downfall will find no sympathizers or generate any compunction. In Pacquiao’s home country of Philippines, everything was at a standstill, even the rebels and government who have been involved in an acrimonious war of attrition had a ceasefire just to watch their hero. Two female journalists who were seeking for notice lied that he had banned them from covering the match. Vanquished foes like Oscar De La Hoya and former heroes who squandered their earnings joined the hate bandwagon, yet Maywetaher came out unscratched.
I watched Mayweather for the mastery of his craft. I don't watch him as a role model. if I want a role model, I look at Jesus, the author and finisher of my faith or I look at my pastors and teachers. While he did not invent the shoulder roll, he perfected it. He was elusive in the ring, but he was ubiquitous in Las Vegas as he always went out with a caravan.  That caravan always provoked the barking of past heroes like Tyson or vanquished foes like De La Hoya each time it passed. De La Hoya seeking to replace Mayweather with his own milky cow in the name of Canelo Alvarez, comes out swinging that the fight was boring. Wasn’t the same fight that he delivered with Canelo where De La Hoya himself said that Mayweather was a defense wizard? De La Hoya’s shenanigans are a dull business move because it takes away interest from boxing.
Mayweather was not out of the ring; he was in the ring with his opponents. Why and how was he then running? Good boxers know how to cut the ring. They know how to corner their opponents.
Unfortunately, Mayweather’s opponents could not hit him. The great Lennox Lewis said that, “You cannot hit what you can’t see.” Others who are jealous say that he is a coward; he runs al through in the ring. Why did the skill opponents not hit him then? “Iron Mike” hunted down his opponents and chopped them down with knockout punches. Ali floated like a butterfly, but he stung like a bee. Nonetheless, Money Mayweather made himself a ghost in the ring. He appeared to jab and land a right hand, but he disappeared before his opponents could find him. That was his master plan: deliver much punishment but take less. Less he has taken too that in 48 fights, he has never been knocked down. We can even count how many times he has bled through his nostrils in each of his fights. Such were his defensive wizardry.
This generation and the boxing world should be happy for a man like Mayweather. People like him come once every generation. He mastered his craft and was aware of his transcendency. Those who hated him called him braggart, but those who love him called his defense wizard. They say that he is a woman abuser and should pay for that. Unfortunately for them, he has already served his time in jail and does not owe them anything. How on earth will live if we had to repay for the sins we have been forgiven? Journalists and humans do take away our sins; God does. He has forgiven Mayweather, whether you like it or not. He said that he has one more fight to go. Perhaps people should love him this time because the more they hated him, the more God was on his side. One of my colleague always said, “God hates ugly.” The perfection of his craft has renewed interests in boxing and thanks to him, other boxers will benefit. No boxer in this generation should make himself a fool by bad mouthing Mayweather because he is the big Kahuna who enriches the boxing village.

Two Reporters Accused Mayweather of Banning them From Covering The Fight.

I read that two female journalists were banned from reporting the Mayweather fight in Las Vergas at the MGM Grand. By the way, Mayweather won the fight by unanimous decision. I find the reaction of the ladies as popularity shoppers or seeking for notice. They are already on TV, so they should curb their appetite for histrionics.
First and foremost, Mayweather's publicist: Kelly Swanson has debunked their lies that they were banned; she showed that they were credentialed already. They didn't just know where to pick their credentials. If Brian Williams told such a lie, the people would be singing how he should step down. These women should step down for deliberately misinforming and misleading people. Here is the Mayweather publicist openly claiming that they are lying. 
Secondly, why are they fighting to cover his fights if Mayweather is such a horrible human being as they seem to portray him to the public? Are they suffereing from the Helsinki/ Stockholm Syndrome where the victim falls in love with her abductor? Is Mayweather the man they hate to love? If Mayweather is so bad, they should avoid his things. They should leave him alone. Sooner they say that he is a broken mad. Why shouldn’t he be broken if you will come up with such lies just to insert yourself in a contest you can never achieve. This is not different from bank robbery because they are stealing the popularity to themselves at this time.
Thirdly, they are not standing up for domestic abuse because in Rachel's last interview with Mayweather, she asked him if he was going to make a donation to a charity. So to solve the problem of domestic abuse is by making a donation to a charity. In other words, money can buy the peace of domestic abuse victims. if she had made a suggestion for Mayweather to carry some workshops against domestic abuse, it would have been understandable because he is the one called out. It shows that the intent was twofolds: to partake in the popularity or to partake in the booty of Mayweather by crook or hook. This time, they are using rumors to cast themselves on the spotlight.
Finally, Mayweather did the crime and did the time. He does not owe society anything anymore. Until human beings become God to hold a man against a sin that has been paid for, they should look at their own skeletons. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. I pray that every man and woman will look at themselves and stop focusing on others or Mayweather. If we were to detail every evil each of us has done, it is likely that Mayweather may appear as the angel.
Stephen A Smith has told America how to fight domestic abuse, but the pride of lionesses bullied the man and he cowed and kowtowed to the usual singsong of unnecessary apologies.
Opinions are debatable, so if you do not like someone’s opinions, you should debate him or her rather than seek for them to lose their job. If the individual had no job, what would you do?
They say that no one should buy Floyd’s fights. Would domestic abuse vanish if Floyd mayweather doe s no more fight? Would Floyd absence from this world solve the problem? If not, then we are approaching the problem wrongly.
My only hope is that everyone running his or her mouth against Mayweather should expose their own lives to the public. What Mayweather does in the ring is our business, but what he does outside the ring is not ours. Domestic abuse will be bettered fought with education and respect for humans than a name and shame campaign as the one perpetrated against Mayweather. Mayweather should be talked into organizing workshops rather than be blackmailed. Mayweather should be smart to select who he gives interview. 
Until then, Mayweather should be celebrated while he lasts!
