Kidist Paulos Asrat or Kidist P. Asrat as she likes to be known in her professional ventures, is the blogger behind cameraluc.blogspot.com and kpasrat.blogspot.com , beautyforbodymindandspirit.blogspot.ca and has contributed to the American Thinker.
Kidist was born in Ethiopia and identifies herself with the Amhara people and considers herself to be Caucasian. Kidist and her family fled Ethiopia around 1974 after the fall of Emperor Haile Salassie. At the time Kidist was roughly 11 years old, the family moved first Paris and then London, and the United States after which they finally settled in Canada. Today Kidist lives in the multi-cultural hub of Toronto, a fact in itself that is baffling with her views.
Kidist works at a clothing store; however there is speculation that she must have family money or support to fund her lifestyle and travels (mainly to NYC).
Kidist is a firm believer in belief that her blog is an intellectual treasure trove, dealing with high-class fashion, architecture, art and social issues affecting North America (Canada & The United States). Not only is her work of a very high quality but greatly appreciated.
However her blog reads far more as her own personal diatribe against, Gays, Muslims, Liberals, Women, Asians, interracial couples and immigrants. Kidist is all for equal opportunity hating.
Kidist's Greatest Hits/WTF Moments:
As a child Kidit presented flowers to the Emperor, this memory is clearly very important to her and has possibly allowed her to build up her elite status in her mind now that she lives in a world far from that of her childhood.
Kidist is not of the opinion that Asian's can understand or play classical music or dance in the ballet. Her expertise in the matter is the fact that she has studied, violin, piano and sung in classical choirs in her youth. The fact that the National Ballet had Chinese principal ballerina, performing in 'white roles' appears to cause her much rage.
Kidist is creepily obsessed with the child of her neighbors, a young white couple they have a child who is approximately three years old. This little boy has a Chinese caretaker/Nanny. Kidist is not pleased by this arrangement and is constantly spying on the child and caretaker, and approaching the parents to 'warn' them. She is also very worried that the caretaker is attempting to lure the child into accepting other races to the point where he will marry an Asian woman.
Not understanding the presence of Native American's in the Thanksgiving Parade.
Immigrants of the Asian/ Muslim persuasion
Kidist has a lot of pent up rage for immigrants, these range from delightful complaints that they are spending more money that herself to the fact that they bring their own language and culture to Canada. Women who dress in their native attire and speak their own language trying to ruin the real Canada (not the native Canadian's mind you). Immigrants ruin the prices of homes and bring with them their own food and scents changing the landscape. Multi -cultural Canada will be the death of Kidist.
Kidist enjoys attacking the Obamaâ€™s (everyone including Bo is fair game), apparently The President is incapable etc and Michelle and the girls have appalling clothing choices.
Kidist occasionally ventures an opinion on movies and award shows. Popular Movies = bad, especially if they have a tinge of race to them. Oh and Tina Fey has a potty mouth.
Kidist is friends with Lawrence Auster and Laura Wood (The Thinking Housewife), and keeps in touch not only by email but has visited them. She treats their words and thoughts as high intellect and quotes them regularly.
Kidist also goes out of her way to not only stare and complain about interracial couples to people serving her in restaurants but does the same for Gay couples. The lack of response she receives from others is perceived by her to be agreement and she appears to be convinced that Canada is full of people who like her are appalled by interracial couples, gays and immigrants but are too cowardly to say so publically and need her to speak out.
Kidist doesn't allow comments on her blog. While you can email her, she is very quick to threaten to report you to the HRC ,the dissonance is strong with this one. You are however encouraged to contribute to her endeavors at publish a book.

She could have left. She was offered a place by her brother. It’s not like she and the kids would starve on the streets in any case . She evidently decided what she had was better and more worth hanging on for than whatever was waiting for her. She must live with her choices. She Isn't sorry for herself or see herself as a victim of anyone or anything so why should?
I've seen a picture of my dad as a toddler wearing a dress. He would be 91 now and that's how toddler boys were dressed in those days. He also learned how to knit as a child.

Renaming the show 20 kids and counting after such a loss would have been super tacky.
When they mention 20 kids, I’m sure they are meaning Jubilee.
Hmm. Given the “celebrating” part and the fact that he will be at the celebration, I think they’re talking about Tyler.

I will preface this by saying music is not really my thing. I have a few favorites, but I mostly like 80s stuff because that's when I grew up.
I have watched/listened to several of Michael's songs and like them. Not the words necessarily, but how they flow, the beat, etc. <goes off to hide>
In this particular one, I think he looks creepy due to a combination of the cinematography (if you can call it that) and that he looks like he hasn't slept in a month of Sundays. That is some serious luggage under his eyes. I've seen zombies that look better
I absolutely love my 80’s music and some 90’s music. The best childhood was one from those decades 🙂 (arguably) 🙂
I will admit the song “ When I’m In The World” is a good song. It’s catchy, positive, and he sounds upbeat and energetic.1 hour ago, throwaway9988 said:
This really resonated with me. I had to try my best to fake it for so long because otherwise my parents would have made me homeless and left me without an education and my life would have been even worse than it was in Remnant.
Gwen brainwashes her followers into thinking that no matter how miserable they are in Remnant, they need to just not think about it (because otherwise they are focusing on/worshipping themselves instead of god) and keep on toeing the line. She brainwashes them into thinking that no matter how miserable they are, that they will be more miserable if they leave Remnant, because then in addition to whatever demons they are battling now they would also be getting cursed for disobedience by God while on earth and not get go to heaven after they die. She repeats it over and over until she has them trapped. And they get Stockholm Syndrome, thinking that if they just toe the line and go all in and be the perfect Remnant member, then they will stop feeling miserable and get more blessed on earth. Except the happiness they are chasing and see in the other members is all so fake, and any earthly blessings are usually just a result of being in higher social circles within Remnant and never convincingly attributable to a supernatural power. So they stay trapped in Remnant, because they believe Gwen's lies that no matter how miserable they are in Remnant, things would be worse for them if they left.
Thankfully, Gwen's lies really are just lies. I'm so much happier and better off after escaping Remnant and I would never go near that hellhole again.
As an outsider, who at one time thought Gwen was pretty great, and that the folks at RF were so happy and perfect, it’s easy to see how someone can get caught up in it all.
But you soon see past the fake smiles and realize that’s just the surface. I truly don’t know how some people can stay there year after year and deal with it all.
Thanks for giving us all some insight into the world you lived in. Glad you’re in the REAL world ❤️

That courtship story is really....something, if you've never read it. This is one of my favorite parts, where she likens her road to courtship with David to Jesus' journey to his crucifixion because she didn't feel anything. And then says love/marriage is basically death. Her marriage to David is, I suppose, her cross then.
Can you link to the whole thing please?
