Noun - par·son \ ˈpär-sᵊn \

Definition: Someone who is woke and preaches the truth about a matter.

The original definition from the 13th century applied to a priest of an independent church that was not under the control of a larger organization. Parson came from the from Latin word persona, literally meaning, "person" with authority.

The title of Parson fell out of mainstream usage in the 19th century and increasingly so as religion fell out of favor in the 21st century. However, due to social media presence of celebrities, as well as the recognition of historical black figures from the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, many famous "Parsons" have taken the spotlight, bringing the word back into favorable usage and separating itself from its original definition into a broader term for a preacher.

Famous Parsons include:

Lucy Parsons (1853–1942) Activist, anarchist, and writer who stood up for minorities and women's rights, challenging the racist and sexist sentiment in America.

Karyn Parsons (1966 - Current) Famous actor from the "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." Founded the Sweet Blackberry organization used to reach children and give a voice to lesser-known African-American figures.

Jim Parsons (1973-Current) TV’s Highest paid openly gay actor is known for playing Sheldon Cooper in the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Was accepted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame on March 11, 2015.
Person: I don't understand why it's called the "Black Lives Matter" movement, don't all lives matter?"

Parson: Of course all lives matter, but there were 300 years of American history during which Black lives did not matter. Black Americans could not get fair trials, lynching was not uncommon because killing Black people was not officially a crime in the mid-twentieth century. That's not ancient history. The movement called Black Lives Matter has opened up a dialog of the social injustices of the Black population that are still taking place today in America."

A Parsons is a person who likes cats, is totally obsessed with kids' shows. Thinks other people care about him while everyone hates him. Overall failure in life.
