“Race Relations In America Suck-Again”
Before I write forward in my article, I would like to extend my condolences to Traevon Martin's parents and family. I empathize with your loss, a loss of a child is a traumatic and heart wrenching event and I pray Jesus would heal your pain and suffering soon........
What would Dr. Martin Luther King think of today's race relations in America, he might look at all of the headliners soaking the airwaves and newspaper clippings and very well say of our present racial relations; “ they suck-again.” Beyond these words, I am quite confident he would as well be disappointed with Jesse Jackson and indeed disgusted with Al Sharpton's choice of words and actions in discrediting what he(MLK) envisioned for America's future. For those who have forgotten or perhaps were unaware of what that vision was, let me quote Dr. King from his “I have a Dream speech(in part) ” in which he publicly declared “...little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and little white girls as sisters and brothers...” King often spoke in terms of a Biblical mandate for change, not a “social gospel” these men propagate. Myself, I am horribly saddened and angry over the whole deadly Traveon Martin shooting. Racial hatred has been once again charged in this case and the media(MSNBC, NBC) and race-baiters as well as plenty of others(to numerous to mention here) are to blame for making what should be a clear cut and simple police matter into a frenzy of political propaganda and using Traveon's murder as a way to increase a way for personal notoriety and financial gain. It makes me all very ill just thinking about it.
As a man who's ancestry includes that of a darker skin pigment, I can say without a doubt that every time this nation makes another step forward in repairing and making progress in race relations, some evil person comes along and takes this nation two steps back and I'm tired of it. I'm tired of the criminals and the Jesus pretenders that interfere in genuine Biblical love between human beings. That love I speak is of course is the love of Jesus Christ. Were you aware there are black churches in the deep south that if I tried to attend I would be asked to leave ? No, primarily not asked to leave because those attending were prejudice against my skin pigment which appears as white, no they would ask me to leave because if the local KKK or other black skin pigment haters found out I attended their church, The darker skin pigment haters would burn down the church or harass the folks attending the church. Equally in the USA, because I am married to a person of “color”, I am not safe in the deep south as well as up north in some churches because there are those who reject the notion of mixed race couples in the Caucasian as well as in, Hispanic, Asian, Black and other racial communities. Prejudice for skin pigment is in every community, every town, and all across America, but it would subside if only the skin pigment haters would shut up and read their Christian Bibles.
In the north, I have attended some churches where the entire congregation is black and most, not all were very loving and warm. I was often greeted with hugs and kisses on my cheek(made me blush at times really). There were however those African-American folks there who gave me that “angry black” man/woman look as if I weren't supposed to be there-their evil just promulgated all over me. After living more than fifty years now, I am happy to report that by and large however I have seen and experienced race relations on the local level improving in America. The problem however of racial hatred is largely controlled on the national level by those with deep pockets and loud voices, not the Bible and not with common sense. The sad fact of the matter is just about whenever there is a black person shot, killed, murdered in the USA, there are many “national” black leaders willing to automatically scream the word “racism!” These same black leaders are practically doing nothing about “black on black crimes” and the disintegration and decimation of the African-American family(shows you really what they care about). Those who scream such words of racism without even a clue as to what really occurred, only adds fuel to the flame of racial prejudice and adds to the problem and resolves nothing ! Then again, there are those who project themselves as guardians of the people as I mentioned earlier, but the truth being told, those “guardians” by and large are nothing but wolves in sheep’s clothing. These wolves exploit other people's tragedy’s for their own personal financial gain and gain of personal notoriety. Think about it; if they didn't have hate, deception and doing things the devil's way, what would they be doing for a living ? Without pouring salt on old wounds, what what else could they do to make a dollar ?
As far as the Bible is concerned, racial hatred is of the devil. Whether you are a neo-Nazi, Black Panther member or sympathizer, your name is Frederica Wilson, Currine Brown, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson or David Duke, it matters not, hatred is hatred. When we have national leaders like Barrack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder who refuse to do their jobs, to purposely and maliciously look the other away from criminal activities such as those like the New Black Panthers who blocked a voting place in 2008 and recently posted “dead or alive” wanted posters for George Zimmerman, we indeed have a more than a simple problem. These people are the true haters, and exploiters of hatred for personal gain and attention. When I hear new Black Panther members call for “war” against “those crackers, honky’s” and so on, the natural man in me gets angry. Thank the Lord I have Jesus, not to let my anger turn to sin. These people however are violators of God's Word and if there is ever going to be racial harmony in our nation, haters and those who promote such hatred should no longer be tolerated(of any skin pigment color !), they should be removed from the ability to speak of such ungodly hate and propagation and promotion of such putrid and demonic works. Satan is the “father of all lies” and there is no way the people of the One True and Living God should let these promoters and enablers of wicked works go on in their deception.
A bit of Godly and Biblical advice for all those of us who are who are Bible believing Christians parents.... we have a God given Biblical duty to teach our children and our families right from wrong. Those who promote the allowance of worldly ways like clothing, IE...” hoodies” and baggy pants for our children only give permission to emulate evil. If you are not aware, the clothing style I just described is often the style of clothing worn by gang members and rap music who call themselves “thugs” and “gang members”. The Bible is clear in Romans 12:2 “And do not imitate this world, but be transformed by the renovation of your minds, and you shall distinguish what is the good, acceptable and perfect will of God“(Aramaic Bible in Plain English). If you don't want to bring trouble upon yourself, the Bible is clear; act like Jesus, not like a criminal. Why allow our children to invite unwelcome hatred and suspicion or wrong doing in their and our lives by acting like the world. The Body of Jesus Christ in America is infatuated with entertainment in the church and the world has gripped many Christian families and the trouble that we often reap is due to the influence of the world upon our lives. I suspect had Traevon Martin not dressed like the criminals that he assimilated in “street wear” he may very well may have been alive today. 3John 1:11 states; “Our beloved, do not imitate evil, but the good. One who does good is from God. One who does evil has not seen God.”
It is my understanding that Pastor Terry Jones of Florida is holding a rally of support for Mr. Zimmerman[ Traevon Martin's shooter. The rally is said to ensure George Zimmerman's Constitutional rights. I support that idea, however I would also ask of Dr. Jones that before he holds such a rally(if he hasn't done so already) to contact all Biblical pastors in the area in which he will hold his rally and also hold a meeting with those (all skin pigment colors) Bible believing pastors as to have a time of prayer, fasting and a like minded and Christ filled Spirit of unity before taking to the streets. If I were pastor Jones, I would want as many true loving brothers and sister in Christ of every skin pigment color standing with me in wanting to see true Biblical justice for all included, that of course includes not only George Zimmerman but Traevon Martin as well.
On an ending and personal note with plenty of on-hand experiences, true justice is very difficult to find in America these days. “Justice” especially in the court room is really like a “crap-shoot”, a game of chance. With so many judges, lawyers, that have become political extensions of the “left” or “right”, true justice is rare, especially for poor folks like me and possibly you. Indeed, rarely is justice given in the courtroom with so many political games and legal "maneuvering" occurring. I am not so sure that if innocent, George Zimmerman nor for that matter even Traevon Martin either will ever get justice and I highly doubt because of how “the law” inside and outside the courtroom operates, we will all know what really occurred the day of the shooting and death of Traevon Martin. People like Sharpton, Jackson, the “New” Black Panthers, the neo-Nazi's and KKK have all interjected their voices in the Traevon Martin-George Zimmerman case as of late, and will soon bring themselves to clash possibly with violence during on and or after the trial. All America(again) is being sucked into a dangerous legal situation that would have on the most part been done well for most "players" to be left out. People who are race-baiters and haters of skin pigment do no good towards evil, they only help add fuel to the fire of hate and that's the bottom line here. I am all in agreement with Dr. Jones to achieve his goal of seeing George Zimmerman's Constitutional rights protected, however I also want to see God's way; those who will find injustice and expose it to do so Biblically; that is with truth and love. Let me quite clear; I stand with Biblical justice because the Biblical God demands Godly justice done but let me as well be quite clear here also, that the God of the Bible does not use a demonic social gospel nor evil's such as lying or suppressing truth for personal or other evil gain as well. If you want to expose evil, look at yourself first(get that plank outta your own eye first) before setting the world straight on such matters as race relations as God would have it. Let all Biblical men and women demand Godly justice His way, not of those who hate for profit, notoriety or for any other evil reason.
To all race-baiters and skin pigment haters-Go Home in Jesus name … Go Home !
