MY OPINION

 

Do I know my opinions in this post may be offensive to a few folks? Of course I do. Do I care? Not really or I wouldn’t be writing it.

For those who say I’m not racist I’m prejudice: Read the definitions they are basically the same. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that said.

WHY I’M WRITING THIS

The reason I’m touching on this topic is simple. I over heard a gentleman in line at a store today defending his white supremacy beliefs by quoting bible scripture. Then proclaiming Christianity!!

My reaction, well have you ever seen the Exorcist? You know the scene where her head spins around , yep that was me. I was fuming inside but held my composure the best I could. I simply said sir I’m a Christian and maybe you don’t realize this or aren’t smart enough to understand it.  Jesus he wasn’t white or from America. He also didn’t speak English.

Maybe you should read your bible again. The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem a Palestinian city. He had brown skin dark hair and brown eyes. HE WAS JEWISH and didn’t speak one word of English.

Jesus did speak  of love ,kindness and forgiveness. Hatred was not in his heart not even while he was hanging on the cross.

 

THE CROSS

You can call it “lighting the cross” all you want! Lights and fire are two completely different things  as far as I’m concerned. The mere origin of burning a cross was started by Scottish clansmen as a statement of defiance. Nothing spiritual ,loving or kind about that!!

Romans 8:31 KJV What shall we say then to these things? If God be for us ,who can be against us?

Yes ,yes you can throw bible scripture at me all day long that you twist into  racist hatred of some kind or another. That’s because hatred and ignorance fills your soul!

AM I ANGRY

Yes and no, frankly I pity those who are so miserable in their own skin that they feel the need to hurt others. It does anger me that you toss religion around as your reason when Christianity is about loving, kindness caring and forgiveness.

Do you know who in this country has the right to be angry?? The Native American Indians that’s who!! You know the ones who lived here before our immigrant ancestors came and stole their land, burned their villages and killed them.

They were /are the only true Americans. The rest of us came from other countries. So yes that’s right you are a damn immigrant yourself and truth be told if you checked back far enough in your ancestry you would probably find that you aren’t as white as you thought!

Let’s face it ,white supremacy isn’t the only form of racism or bigotry out there BUT it is the most wide spread and most recognized. To be clear I am against racism in every form.

THE MELTING POT

What happened to our great country ? Has everyone lost sight of why we are called The Melting Pot? It’s definitely not because you’re melting butter in a pot.

How did we lose sight of this?? It is what has always made this country great! We are a strong powerful country and our multicultural diversity is one of the things that make other countries envy us.

MAKE OUR COUNTRY GREAT AGAIN

Can we make America great again?? Of course we can , and the first step is putting a stop to racism. Racial division …..our enemies want nothing more than to see this great country fall. Trust me they smile when they see and hear the stories of us turning against each other.

And over what? Skin color ,religious beliefs?? Wake up America do you not see how ridiculous we look to the rest of the world?? Do you even care anymore??

Racism is destroying us and its pure ignorance for anyone to think they are superior because of their skin color or religious beliefs. Why choose to be angry bitter and hateful ? Is this really how you want to live your life?

When someone says your name years after you’re gone how do you want to be remembered? As the jackass no one really wanted to be around because they were always bitter and angry  and hateful or someone who was admired for kindness generosity and an open heart.

AGAIN MY OPINION

In case you didn’t catch it my opinion on racism is that it’s ignorance in the truest form. My opinion is that racists are miserable unhappy immoral and unjust.

I want to vomit every time I hear Bible scripture quoted as a justification for hatred. God does not hate nor discriminate he is accepting loving forgiving and beautiful. So loving and forgiving ,that even the worst of the worst are still loved and can be forgiven.

What’s needed in this world is unity not separation. Not sliding back but moving forward.  Love not hate. Kindness not cruelty.

We can make America great again not by separation or segregation but by unity. We can rise above the anger hatred and senseless brutality and deaths we’ve recently been seeing.

It starts with us! Not our government not our enemies but us the Citizens of America! Our great nation THE MELTING POT !!
