I've seen a lot of progressive white pastors commenting on #ArethaHomegoing as a "master class in liturgy" and with hopes that this expression can find its way into their churches.

Let me tell you why that is problematic.
One of the fears of black folks rests in the reality that what is "ours" is only "ours" until white people want it. The history of American music is literally the story of white people appropriating what black people created.
What was on full, almost extreme, display at #ArethaHomegoing (the good, the bad, and the ugly) was a product of the Black Church™️. It is inextricably linked to the experience of black people in the United States.

My 1st-ever thread, in honor of #ArethaHomecoming

In 2011 I got to perform, along with @aishatyler & @StephMillerShow on the @sexyliberaltour, at one of the most beautiful theaters in America, the Detroit Opera House. We found out Aretha wanted to come & bring 11 friends.
2. We had only planned on selling the orchestra section so we offered the queen & her court the entire mezzanine. We also offered her comps but she insisted on paying for the tickets for her entire party.
3. The orchestra section was packed & it was a spectacular crowd. Nobody knew who was sitting above them as the show began. Backstage we had agreed to hold the curtain until her entire group was seated.

This photo of Louis Farrakhan Sr., Rev Al, Rev Jackson and Bill Clinton is breathtaking. #ArethaHomegoing
They said Bill Clinton walked in and got a standing ovation. Years later the black community still loves Bill. Now imagine how we will look at the clown 🤡 sitting in the Oval Office now?

This is @CorEyPTownsend, clear your calendars and grab your best bereavement garment because today's the day we pay some R-E-S-P-E-C-T to the #QueenOfSoul: #ArethaFranklinFuneral #ArethaHomegoing
Our Editor-in-Chief @blacksnob is live at #ArethaFranklinFuneral and you’ll all be pleased to know that they did our auntie RIGHT.

The #QueenOfSoul is draped in a long gown, gold sequins and gold red bottom shoes. #ArethaHomegoing
They knew that they had to do the #QueenOfSoul right, because she would’ve been ready to tell each & every one of us about ourselves if we had her up there looking any type of way. #ArethaFranklinFuneral #ArethaHomegoing
