I can never watch the cruelty of others during the Civil Rights Movement without being moved to tears. THE BLOOD,SWEAT AND TEARS…OF OTHERS. I find it funny how everyone likes to express themselves but yet, prefer to be silent on hatred especially in this country. It’ s not popular when you exposed the monsters of prejudices and racism in the United States ever!
And what divinely angers me when I know people still believe that this part of history is not important. ISIS has been coming for a while due to the seeds of hatred planted through ancestors regardless of where it stems from.
Everyone has these so-called “God found” answers about what sin is and how God is going to strike America with his judgment. I still ask…When will you talk about this ignorance of hatred based on prejudices and racial hatred?
I ready know that race talking make people uncomfortable because it requires that you take a good look at the inner demons many possess. Oh yes, we have some fire and brimstone preachers, spitting scriptures and waiting for people to plunge into hell like it some kind of Lake Shore property endorsement…The truth is … racism is a sin and its wrong!
If you come from that generation that is still calling folks “colored” and the N…word. CHECK YOUR GOD METER… And don’t think for one moment people who claim to love God and so-called Christians still have a problem with dealing with others outside their racial schemes! The biggest lie you can tell yourself is that I have “blacks” in my family…or that one token friend of color outside your race. Many of you know exactly what is being said behind closed doors. Some of you are still married to racism!
Yet, many have fail to address racism ugly heads. It’s no longer relevant and I say that is why “terrorism” is breaking this country apart. Oh yes, I can make the comparison. Isn’t it funny how we can point out the sins and say God’s judgment is on America but we never call RACISM… sinful. This kind of hatred stems from a prejudice of some kind.
Regardless of what has been done…people still can’t grasp the racial discrimination done upon others! There are others who still needs to take responsibility and own up to it…You got monsters!
The foundational truth about the messiness in this country is that it breeds more racial division more than ever. God knows President Obama seem to bring out the most racial hatred in this country…President Obama isn’t the real problem… race still matters in this country!
People we haven’t gotten that far will . It still is dismissed as one of those things. Lots of so call “preaching” about sin… but what about the history of racism. It existed in the bible. Moses and his dark wife…can we recount. How can we talk about the plagues of this country without first addressing… the “better than the other” campaign?
It is so disturbing to know just looking at this monstrosity of hatred back in 1965… just to vote.
There are many discriminatory practices that is more than one kind of slavery, yet in this country that still exists.
