The Gospel Truth
NORTH CAROLINA-(BASN)-We, all, have read the Bible. Or skimmed through it. Misquoting scriptures, forgetting verses, making up stuff, and formatting our own interpretations, while attempting to make sense of the four gospels, which were allegedly written by Mark, Matthew, Luke and John. Therefore, during Black History Month, we, at Blackathlete.com, decided to create our own gospel according to some of our great scholars, thinkers, and leaders.

The Gospel According to Dr. Julia Hare
Black folks are still allowing white folks to choose their leaders. Do you believe the Israelis would allow the Arabs to choose their leaders? The Chinese would allow the Japanese to choose their leaders for them? Would the British allow the Irish to choose their leaders ? Do you think that lions would allow tigers to lead them in the jungle? It’s only Black folks who will allow others to come in and pick their leaders for them!
The Gospel According to Martin Luther King
