Narrator's voice: Roy was right. God was in control. What he didn't realise was, She's black. https://t.co/pCpVifXgbq— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) December 13, 2017

J.K. Rowling Makes Me Go to My Bookshelf
And it turns out to be about Advent!
U.P.I Oklahoma City
A baby was born on a downtown sidewalk
In the snow,
While people hurried on by
Except for the disinterested glance of
A taxicab driver.
And a few hundred other people.
A mother screaming for help
A newborn infant shivering in the cold,
And an unnoticed star appearing in the West.
Over Oklahoma City.
In the U.S.A.
In the Western Hemisphere.
In the Universe.
In the mind of God.
Pacing back and forth.
For an astronaut to return from outer space with a very funny story. The funny story goes like this:
The astronaut has been out in space.
And everyone is waiting for his report on
whether or not he has seen God. Now
this is the funny part. Hold on now.
Here's the punch line.
And he has seen God.
And they ask him to describe God.
And he says: (This is it!)
"God--she's a Negro!"
You see why it's funny, don't you?
