I have held my tongue - well... maybe not. I have expressed myself at home. Please know this is controversial - but it is humbly written and questioning...
Is anyone else sick and tired of all the black/white stuff?
I have some very dear friends of color - red, yellow, black and brown. I love them all. I respect them. I honor them. Not for their color, but for who they are. Their color does not enter in to the equation.
I also have dear friends who are white...
I feel that we are all created in God's image.
I wish that all things were equal, but you know - life is not equal. Bad things happen to everyone. Atrocities have happened in all our families and to all our ancestors.
Why is it okay to have "black" churches and agenda, but there cannot be anything that would be interpreted as "white" anything?
Please know that I am not racist. Yes, I grew up in Georgia, but like I said, I have very good precious black friends and have for years.
It is not okay, no matter WHAT color you are to damn America, to be divisive or to have an agenda to promote one race or sex over the other (that's another thing I am against, "feminism"). We are "one country under God"... "United we stand"... why are we fighting each other?????
We are all created in the skin and body we have. We need to be happy and accept it and not be inferior or superior to anyone else just because they are different from us.
I am sorry that black people were oppressed and forced into slavery. It was wrong, it was horrible. But, the truth is - there is not ONE person alive today that did that. Neither is there ONE person alive today that was a slave.
Why is it an issue in today's world? Why is it still used as an excuse to not move on and to continue to live in bondage of their own making?
WHY? WHY? is it even an issue in today's presidential campaign? Why, WHY is it constantly held over our heads and thrown in our faces and somehow whites are made to feel responsible and have to pay for it?
The issues for President should be about honesty, integrity, skill, ability. Their stand on Christian ideals - against same sex marriage and abortion.. support Israel.
Whether they are black, white, male, female, Republican, Democrat - none of that matters. What is their character? What do they stand for? Can we trust them and can they do the job?
Well, thanks for "listening"... I just got tired of hearing it on TV and Hannity and Combs wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise!
