The word "thang" as used by A Sombra has a number of definitions at UrbanDictionary.com. I merely commented on the use of the word "thang" as inner city vernacular - nothing more.
You commented on St Moses the Black, who is commonly referred to when evangelizing "the black community". (In case you forget what you said, it was "Ah, the vernacular of the inner city. Have you (or Suaiden) heard of St. Moses the Ethiopian (aka St. Moses the Black or St. Moses the Egyptian)?
" I think that such has proven to be only marginally successful in practice. St Moses is one of many black saints, but I have my own theories as to why some Orthodox like to promote his veneration as opposed to the many dozens of others. You might want to consider promoting St Augustine, who is better known, just as black, and a teacher, but not as liked because he is, even in Orthodoxy, a "troublemaker" throughout his life.
That said, the entire "inner city" is not ethnically black (My neighborhood is mostly Puerto Rican), and there are many trying to save our souls, not out killing and robbing "decent" people. I am not black, nor heterodox, nor on "the gangsta tip" so I don't see the relevance, and the fact that you have to strain so hard to connect St Moses the Black with "inner city vernacular" says volumes.
Enough said, I am dropping it. This conversation is starting to piss me off.
