Just because some of us have a few dollars in our pockets, live in affluent homes and communities, drive expensive cars, enjoy civil liberties, acquire social status, earn academic accolades and intermingle with other races doesn’t erase the fact that we are still the most abused and despised race on the planet. This has never been more evident in recent history than now. For when a black man became president of the United States of America, a significant number of white people lost their minds and their civility.
In the years since President Obama smashed barriers to become the country’s first Black Elected President Of The United States of America, his presidency and his family have been morally and politically attacked, insulted by racial taunts and innuendos that have been driven mostly by racial hatred and bigotry.
The offenses have ranged from crude to subtle. And the offenses and offenders have ranged from demeaning media propaganda and subliminal brainwashing to the racial slurs uttered by unknown white persons under the sheets to the None Black Law Enforcement who shoots and kills unarmed and nonviolent Black folks with impunity and prejudice. Even Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, an Obama ally, had to apologize for what many considered to be insensitive, denigrating language while referring to Obama.
The president’s image has been altered to look like an African witch doctor, his wife’s to look like a gorilla. White racist terrorists and their proponents have openly expressed their racism and hatred of Blacks with signs, flags, advertisements and verbal attacks.
Heretofore, such disrespectful outbursts would have been dealt with severely in an open forum. However no such justice was exacted from these perpetrator as there might have been if the roles and race were reversed.
The racist animal has gone rabid to the point of affecting the Congress of the United States whereby they are holding the nation’s economy hostage to ensure that a black man will not serve two terms as president. This is unconscionable but it is happening today. (Probably past tense if read after the date of this post and the second term election of President Obama)
What is even more disturbing is that we as a race of people (Black People) readily assimilate the perverted sexual and social behaviors of our former slave masters and antagonists. We practice their psychological and physical abuses and sexual perversions on each other – eroding any moral integrity we may have had as children of Kings and Queens.
We seem to perpetuate the destruction of our own race through assuming the roles that the Master race has cleverly and systemically outlined and constructed for us. We dare not carve our own path and think for ourselves -free from the propaganda and brainwashing of our former slave owners. We dare not measure ourselves against the backdrop of GOD’S Righteous Purpose for us but against America’s racists idea of civil and racial conformity , i.e. “The American Dream.”
We kill each other and destroy hopes and dreams in our attempt to achieve some variance of the AMERICAN DREAM.”
When all other avenues of reasonable success have been systemically denied us and when we finally realize that the American Dream was never really meant for us, though some circumvented the system, some of us resorted to “Thuggism,” hedonism, drugs and sex in order to achieve a measure of respect, material affluence and social status
Even some of our Christian churches have sought more to conform to the status quo than to transform into CHRIST – welcoming in their midst a variety of corrupt practices, adulterers, fornicators, homosexuals, lesbians and down-low personalities.
Many Christians are trying to play the role of Christianity and operate according to the world’s expectations and prescribed roles for saints but they have no genuine purpose, calling, direction or salvation.
Many believer are politically correct Christians who are guided by public opinion, denominational traditions and doctrines and social trends rather than the SPIRIT of CHRIST.
Romans 1:18-32 says,
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones [oral sex, anal sex, sex with animals, sex with other women and sex with objects]. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another [homosexuality]. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
Isn’t this where we are today – legalizing same sex marriages, validating homosexual adoptions, approving of homosexuality, lesbianism and all types of sexual perversion and idolatry?
While the racist and anti-racist are confronting the moral issues of human rights the gay and homosexual activists have already infiltrated every rank and branch of local and national government as well as church and society. While the race war is raging the war on immorality is being lost.
Don’t look now but only the immoral are prospering and being promoted and a new race is being abused and despised – the Born-again Children of God.
