RACISM, the will of Trump, or MAN'S will?
Greetings, and Peace to YOU and YOURS!
RACISM, I can think of no other anti-social bane that requires less facts, reaches so far, is as counterproductive and so personally self-inflicted. Here, in these United States of America, racism makes up approximately 37% of the American population. There are many people who either deliberately or simply through ignorance, would have you believe the MORE "figurative notion" of 10% racism in America. Many a racist will even use GOD'S Word, the Bible, as an excuse to manage bigotry and racism in their daily lives. I find it to be a CULTURE of its own and those who live it, are spiritually and culturally depraved. The "so-called" EXPERTS would have us believe that racism is primarily conceived out of fear. I, myself, would rather apply this "self-inflicted" culture to all the properties unveiled to us in GOD'S Word, the Bible - which are fear (through ignorance), selfishness, envy and jealousy - all held to ones own feeling of SELF-WORTH. And now, even MORE pronounced than before, it's in the White House - in the President and in MANY others! What do you think?
I do believe that racism has always been in all cultures and the media in America loves to push it.The divide and conquer tactics has torn the country down to its core for the last 8 years.If WE let this continue We will have to deal with a civil war and martial law. It is about time to stop pointing fingers at imaginary enemies and ignore the lies coming from the corrupt media for our own sake.The new administration has shown no racism but the media keeps spewing made up crap stories to make you think so. We all need to get it together and start working together to try and put this country back on track. we the people have the power to stop all the madness going on if we work together.
Galatians 3:28, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus."
With God, eveyone is equal. It's God's will that we all be brought together as one in Christ. Whithout Christ, that won't happen. And since the nation as a whole won't give their life to the Lord, society in general will always be sinful, and always have hate, racism, robbing, raping, killing, disease and disasters.
Let me be real blunt, because I don't know any other way. It sounds like your surprised that racism is rearing it's ugly head in America? Which never really left! When reading your short summary I got this feeling your part of the conscious community -- which I don't have a problem with if that's who you are. But, floating on a cloud and getting in touch with your inner self isn't going to stop the inevitable on whats happening in America. People refuse to see the writing on the wall, that we were sitting on a time bomb that already exploded. Racism, I'll show you what racism really looks like? Come to Chicago where I lived all my life on the westside, 56 years to be exacted 1961 to present day. The city of diversity, Yeah right! It's a city of diverse hatred toward black folks...there I said it! blacks. We are getting shot dead in the streets by police the ones who are suppose to keep us safe. No hope, No resources, no jobs, no way out= violence.Is this racism or just my magination?.
i personally witnessed racism against my neighbor when i was very young and before i even knew what these strange racists were yelling as they drove by me and my friend who were just walking down our neighborhood street. i did not understand what my friend meant when she yelled back "nxxxr means ignorant so you must be the nxxxrs". she had great courage before these loathsome racists. that was around 1965. Today I still bear witness to it but its what i call "closet racism" because they only talk that way in their inner circles. unfortunately i must give the impression that i am one of them because they often have made these remarks in front of me and my jaw drops to the floor. i always counter with a tricky word about human equality but i do not think it sinks into their tiny brains.
The question is how is it possible that clear Racist such as Trump and his KKK followers such as Steve Bannon could possibly be elected to any office set aside the office of President! I guess he is great for the Military Industrial complex, which means fear mongering for sake of selling War after War, and that is why he was. What a shame :(
GC, so True. And a great reminder of this was this week. When there was a Mass shooting in Montreal of Muslims, where 6 Muslims were Killed by some right-wing Christians who is a Trump fan. And Trump did not even mention it and fear monger about it and use that tragedy as basis to call for War on some (Christian) Country. But yesterday when there was knife attack in Paris (Louver) by some Muslim where ZERO person was Killed, Trump was quick to label that as proof of "Islamic Extremism"
and how the Paris attack shows us that we need to be blah blah ready for perpetual War on Islamic Countries, aka War on Terror.
And of course what you need to face up to is that Wall Street Media that made this sociopath Trump possible, is the force behind all this, such as Fox saying that the Montreal attacker was from Morocco! Until Canadian Gov forced it to correct this. Here:
Racism is not God's will but the will of man initiated by Satan to cause us troubles and heart break. God created all of us in His image regardless of the color of our skin and we are all created equal. This is indeed the devil's doing. We are living in an imperfect world. When Jesus soon returns He will change all that and wipe away our tears.
I admire your boldness in raising this question at a time when there are racial tensions accross America. You are also correct to refer to racism as an anti-social bane but I think it is important to note that racism is not automatic. Racism is learned. Alex Haley once wrote "“Racism is taught in our society... it is not automatic.
It is learned behavior toward persons with dissimilar physical characteristics.”
Racism isn't something we are born with. We are born tabula rasa so it is something that is schooled into us by society.
We were born all born as nothing (as empty and wretched sinners) but the society we are born into schools values such as race and ego status into us. In order to defeat racism, we must learn to stop associating ourselves with the artificial labels that society tries to place on us yellow, white, black green red, rich poor free and bond etc and learn to start seeing ourselves as what we truly are: The lost sons of Adam with (common) ....
red blood flowing through our veins.
Racism is inspired by the ego. The ego tells us that lives in the west are more valuable than those in Iraq and Afghanistan. It tells us that one race is more superior to the other. It tells us that some humans deserve more privileges than some others. The ego splits humanity into us (the superior) and the (inferior)
In fact, the word race implies that we are competing against others. Life shouldnt be a competition against one another. Life should be centered on love and self sacrifice. Jesus didnt come to compete with others or to assert his individuality.The Bible tells us that He didnt please himself (Rom 15:3) He displeased himself in order to save others.
Racism will only cease when we stop associating ourselves with the articficial labels that we inherited in this world...
...and start seeing ourselves as who we really are lost souls who are equally in need of Jesus the savior. None is superior. None is inferior. None is jew, non is gentile.Non is arab All humans are born equal for we are all one and the same. When we see ourselves through the eyes of Christ we wouldn't see ourselves as different races, nations and tribes. We will see ourselves as the common human race who assume different shapes and forms.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. Gal 3:28
We brought nothing to this world and we leave with nothing. Even our skin colorations will decay. When we die, trivial things like race will dissipate and God will be the only thing left.
