The 1st Black Man to See the Baby Jesus

The Bible tells us that soon after Jesus was born, wise men from the East — “Magi” — came to his birthplace to pay homage with great and wondrous gifts: “After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the East came to Jerusalem and asked, ‘Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.’ ” (Matthew 2:1) Directed by the diabolical King Herod to Bethlehem, upon the advice of his “chief priests and teachers of the law,” “they went on their way,” we are told in the Book of Matthew, chapter 2, verse 9, “and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.” Upon entering the house, “they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” Warned in a dream that Herod’s motives were not noble, “they returned to their country by another route.”

Prosecutor ‘Manipulated’ Ferguson Grand Jury, Lawmaker Alleges

State Rep. Karla May (D-St. Louis) called for the investigation Thursday. McCulloch said in a radio interview Friday that some witnesses obviously lied to the grand jury, the report says. A joint House and Senate committee is already investigating why Gov. Jay Nixon (D) failed to use National Guard troops in Ferguson on Nov. 24, the day the grand jury decision was announced. May sent a letter Thursday to committee chairman Sen. Kurt Schaefer (R-Columbia), urging that the investigation be expanded to examine whether McCulloch committed prosecutorial misconduct, the AP writes.
