Time to level set. White people don’t need to make anything right with black people. Their focus should be the same as the focus of all people, getting their hearts right before GOD. The GOD who without respect of persons, has commanded all mankind to love their neighbor as themselves. We have all at some point been guilty of abusing our neighbor. Whether it has been, white people abusing black people, black people abusing black people, men abusing women, society at large abusing the mentally handicapped, or Americans abusing foreigners; it is all wrong, and we have all been guilty. Let him who is without sin cast the stones or start the shooting. It is only by all of us reconciling with GOD, that we are able to fine true peace with one another.
The phrase “Black people” has become synonymous with “disproportionately.” Black people are disproportionately killed and prosecuted by the legal system, disproportionately imprisoned for the same crimes as other, disproportionately affected by COVID-19, disproportionately affected by unemployment, disproportionately denied loans by financial institutions, disproportionately marginalized in the cooperate sector, and I could go on and on, but these are the facts which substantiate the outcry “Black Lives Matter.” All of the problems which disproportionately affect Black people come as a result of the three branches of our government not taking an equal interest in the well-being of Black people.
As Dr. King stated, “A threat to justice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” It follows that a threat to equality anywhere is a threat to equality everywhere, and a threat to community anywhere is a threat to community everywhere, and the suppression of truth anywhere is an invitation to darkness everywhere, and a denial of humanity anywhere is the doom of humanity everywhere.
Absolute Love is the answer.
