TO WHOM DO BLACK LIVES MATTER?

The donkey is the Democratic Party’s logo. Is this truly America’s symbol of tolerance?

I got a good laugh out of ‘s post yesterday, So Like, Black Folks Are Really Diverse... Here is how she begins.

I can’t believe I’m writing this, but in light of several things lately, one of them being Joe Biden alleging that black people are all the same, members of one monolithic group, unlike Latinos who are diverse, I think I really need to. Yes, he actually said that. He is only one of many who have said something similar this week. (continued here (insanitybytes2.wordpress.com))

With good humor goes on to point out just how diverse black Americans are. Still, I felt obligated to point out that 90 percent of the black vote goes to Democrats. ‘s reply left me laughing again (see here).

Still, the fact that blacks vote for Democrats is rather strange and surprising. Many blacks condemn monuments to Confederate soldiers, but they vote the political party that supported slavery without qualification? They support the political party that still remains determined to suppress blacks, even to the point of aborting their children?

Democrats are still racists. However, instead of putting blacks in chains, they now practice the soft bigotry of low expectations. It is kind of weird if blacks don’t know that, and it is even more weird if they do. Why would people do that to themselves and their children? I don’t know. When someone says a white man cannot understand the experience of blacks, this what I think of.

What we believe makes a difference. When I was reading ‘s post, it occurred to me  I don’t really know what blacks have learned to believe. Nevertheless, because God made us all in His image, because we are all the same before Him, I know I should try to understand.

It goes both ways, of course. Therefore, I watched this video with sincere pleasure.

When we turn to government, we all have a choice. We can use government to punish and exploit others, or we can use government to protect each others rights. As Kimberly Klacik exemplifies, there are leaders in the black community who want to protect the rights of their fellow citizens, not just the rights of the people of a particular race, religion, or sex.

In 1776 a movement began. That movement created a great republic. For several hundred hundred years that movement has stood for human dignity and freedom.

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. (from here (archives.gov))

Because we are imperfect, and we each tend to be self-centered, we have trouble obeying God. We have trouble even believing in God. Instead of living up high ideals, we seek pleasure. Then we worry more about filling our bellies.

Nevertheless, our Lord calls to us to repent and turn to Him. Therefore, if we believe black lives matters, then we must believe that that is because all of us matter to our Creator. Otherwise, none of us matter.

1 John 4:7-21 New American Standard Bible

God Is Love

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is [a]born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. By this the love of God was manifested [b]in us, that God has sent His [c]only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has [d]for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 17 By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear [e]involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. 19 We love, because He first loved us. 20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.

If we love our brothers and sisters, then we must defend each other’s right to live and make our own choices about how we live. We belong to God, not each other. We enslave another when we deny someone’s rights life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We enslave another when we make their choices for them.

  1. Good post, Tom, and everyone needs to hear this because they won’t hear it from the mainstream media. And every American should watch Larry Elder’s “Uncle Tom” http://www.uncletom.com. This movie will open their eyes to what’s been done to black people in the name of social justice.

    Here’s a deleted scene from the documentary that exposes the myth that the racists changed parties to Republican (Joe Biden’s old cronies are in this, too!):

    Great post. To help you understand in a roundabout way your statement, “I don’t really know what blacks have learned to believe.”

    I wrote a post today titled: BLM Conundrum, which explains “what Blacks have never learned to believe.” and why the Democrats agenda wants it to remain that way, in my opinion.

  3. Wouldn’t it be considered racist to refer to black Americans as “black folks.” I’d be offended by that. Still the polls reveal that democrats almost always vote Democrat.
