Sunday Praise & Worship | Christmas Jams 2019

God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen) is an English traditional Christmas carol. The melody is in Aeolian mode. It was published by William B. Sandys in 1833, although the author is unknown.[1]

Like so many early Christmas songs, this carol was written as a direct reaction to the music of the fifteenth century church, in Stories Behind the Best-Loved Songs of Christmas. However, in the as-yet earliest known publication of the carol on a circa 1760 broadsheet, it is described as a “new Christmas carol,”[2] suggesting its origin is actually in the mid-18th century. It appeared again among “new carols for Christmas” in another 18th-century source, a chapbook believed to be printed between 1780-1800

    And I just want to say this: @ZerlinaMaxwell is a treasure. She has been invaluable this entire cycle so far. I mean there are things I don’t agree with her on. But I hope that if & when this truly becomes an All-White Primary that it doesn’t also mean we see less of her on TV.

    I can’t erase from my mind the images of Carlos Hernandez Vasquez twitching and dying. In America, kids are sleeping on cement slabs, covered in foil blankets, denied medical care and compassion. To all those bible-quoting, Trump-defending “Christians” out there…God is watching

      None of those who are talking about which candidate blacks should vote for since Sen. Harris left the race, know anything about black folks in general. If we don’t flock en mass behind Buttigieg, it’s because we’re homophobic. If we don’t flock behind Warren or Sanders, it’s because we hate white folks. They’re talking, but they know nothing about us. I read the things they say, but I will make up my own mind when it comes to supporting a candidate, and so will other Black Americans. They really need to sit down, shut up, and listen to us instead of trying to tell us who to support. This sh*t pisses me off to the max.
