What would you think if you heard someone say “I think it is time for white Americans to rise up and kill the blacks who are killing the whites. The law does not matter anymore, so just grab a gun and start shooting those blacks.”
Sounds ridiculous doesn’t it. It sounds like someone would be trying to incite a riot or start a race war. But that is almost exactly what Louis Farrakhan said recently only 180 degrees in reverse. He said ‘…it is time for black Americans to rise up and kill those who kill us’. And almost like it was a cue for others in America, police officers are now being targeted. Innocent American lives being killed because of this ‘anti-American’ group called ‘Black lives matter’. Well, as a Christian, the bible teaches us that ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’. If we are to live life as Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed about, it should not matter the color of their skin, but the content of their character and that all lives matter.
When anyone says “Black lives matter” and someone else replies “All lives matter” that should be the end of it. But all too often, someone will interject “No! Black lives matter”. I was raised to believe that everyone matters, no matter the skin color. You see, my parents and extended family made sure that I understood that we are all children of God and that we were all made in His image. But our countries Constitution also refers to that. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Even our fore-fathers, while forming this once great nation knew that “all lives matter”. Maybe we did not always adhere to that notion, but the framers of the Constitution of the United States of America thought it important enough to include it and sign it. (Also, our fore-fathers knew our rights were granted by God and not man, but I will write about that later).
When some one or a group of people assert that “Black lives matter”, what the average person is supposed to think is ‘of course’, but all too often, groups like BLM are infiltrated by radicals that will exploit the sheeple and their emotions. They try to justify hatred and murder and destruction. They think that “only black lives matter” thereby keeping segrigation alive, further seperating our country instead of unifying it. Abraham Lincoln once said that a house divided against itself can not stand. Look at the termoil created by radical racial groups that are nothing more than terrorists. Yes, I compared the BLM crowd to home grown terrorists. A hate filled group centered on dividing, destraction and destruction.
The KKK, The Black Panthers, the American NAZI party, BLM et. al. are all hate filled groups. How can you claim to be a Christian yet hate? It is time for the silent majority to stop asking the government to “do something” and we, as a nation solve the problem ourselves. Stop supporting those that support radical hate groups. Ridicule publically all of these hate groups. Choke the finances and make it undesirable to join. Make it unprofitable. Ridicule friends and family if they are part of or support them. Speak out against hate with facts and keep hammering the facts. Be armed with knowledge and be prepared to stand up for what is right. It is never wrong to do the right thing. (Mark Twain)
My life matters also as does yours.
