COLORED PEOPLE:

The STRIPES of Healing

Founding Statement:

This biweekly newsletter will seek to explain the pain and suffering mainly people of color endure through no fault of their own.  The dehumanizing excuses our people always seem to elicit from people in power that make our Christian Brothers and Sisters accept their reasoning as if it was uttered by the Almighty.  Lastly what I see with my own eyes begs the question from my conscience.  “Are we loving or can we really love our neighbor as ourselves”.

Issue 3:  State The Obvious

I want to pick up a little bit from the last issue where I said license was taken to commit whatever offense pops into the head in the name of God.  Would you agree with me that God placed in writing his mistakes (as any creature of the creator could fathom a conclusion) for all of us to read, recall, and rejig.  God revealing to us his greatest mistake when he turned over teaching his creation (mankind) about God to Satan.  How Satan turned on God and convinced many angels to follow suit (although those angels only followed Satan because Satan promised them judges) and oppose God in his own house.  Go figure huh.  Wow, so God when he found out his chosen one turned on him he didn’t look to shift the blame or ask for healing before correcting his mistake.  Boy, did he correct his mistake!  He told Michael to handle his light work.  Did he have to straighten up Heaven more than once?  Right.

See, when you have citizens, all citizens to include government officials at all levels and the police at all levels, not subject to every law then that’s when order is moot.  Refer back to the previous paragraph on whether every force of being in Heaven is accountable.  Evangelicals be careful because all of you have been told there’s a get out of jail free card available only to you. Evangelicals you’ve been told for hundreds of years your precepts of man over God is right.  Everyone who is not White is 3/5 a person.  They are not humans as only Evangelicals get to determine what is a human being, and God is what I say God is and he does what the church (which is whatever crazy uncle is available) tells him. 

As I stated in a previous issue, Evangelicals cannot speak for someone else especially someone in power.  Check with the Bible and get back to me on whether Saul on the road to Damascus took responsibility for his own actions.  I’m a Christian as well and I will never say God sent me a devil to lead me to Hell.  God did not send Donald Trump to lead America.  That statement by some of these so called pastors comes right up to the door of blasphemy.  Remember when the Sadducees and Pharisees said Jesus cast out devils by the power of the devil?  Reasoning that way would make since if these Evangelicals (Evan-devil-cals) knew what they were talking about and could back it up with scripture. 

Would it be reasonable to say that these Evangelicals are misleading their followers?  Maybe Satan and a third of the angels after being cast out of Heaven thought that God needed to extend to them an olive branch of reconciliation.  Maybe God made it clear when you make a mistake you are the one responsible of correcting it.  If correcting it means you caste out those that would seek to sow continued division in your house, so be it.  I would liken it to burning your bridges what Satan and his followers attempted to do to God.  When Satan and his angels tried to cross back over (if at all they realized they were wrong) by throwing a rope to other side it landed in a puddle of mud.  Pick a side please!

America, listen to me.  I’m not an elected official.  I’m just an African American man born with the description of ‘colored’ on my birth certificate in 1966.  I lived in poverty as a child.  I have been discriminated against many times as a man of color.  I have been to the heights of authority in many jobs and treated everyone with dignity and respect.  Now all that being said, what I am today is a product of my mother and the United States Military.  What I learned from my mother I had to read, recall, and rejig to finally understand what she meant to me over many years.  Honestly it took that much time to get through my hard head, or as she told me several times I had a smart mouth that would bring me trouble.  She was right.  My service to my country taught me that one valuable lesson in leadership I will expound on here.  ‘State the obvious”.

America just got rid of an engine that had recall written all over its’ maintenance record.  When we make a mistake as a country it counts!  One serious thing I’ve got to address right now.  Please stop disparaging the word ‘charismatic’.  The dictionary has ‘divinely’ in the meaning of the word ‘charisma’.  Because Donald Trump got a lot of foolish people to follow him doesn’t connect him to the divinity!  One other thing I keep saying Evangelicals.  You are not going to get a pass at your judgment in front of the Almighty by saying you were just simply voting Republican.  Good.  That’s said and done.  

Jiggery-pokery is a more fitting explanation of Donald Trump’s skill and appeal.  Frankly let us not forget that he just continued playing on what was already baked into the minds of White America.  The centuries of historical doctrination of White Supremacy in this young country.  What did you expect these people to do when the country they’ve been taught were theirs just by the color of their skin was slipping away from them?  What do you think brainwashed people will do when someone begins to tell them something different than what they’ve been hearing all their lives?  What do you think people will do when they have never had a reason to use ‘reasoning’ or engage in the arena of ideas to build a consensus for their way of life?  Right!  Their way of life has never been challenged or scrutinized as valid for anyone that doesn’t look like them!

Why do you think there is this perpetual violent pushback by a certain segment of irrational White America against people of color?  It hasn’t ended.  Why?  The answer is that there has never been an outreach program to that part of White America that still long for the times where ‘everybody stayed in their place’.  Where old Jim Billy Jethro Harry Bubba made all the sense because they were the leaders of this uneducated sect of White America.  The proof is right in your face!  All these conspiracy peddlers are successful because they know the history of this country!  They know enough never to give the truth to these low-educated people.  They feed them enough to get them going in the direction they desire.  I see it because I have studied and lived a life of Philosophy.  

Like I said to everyone reading this digital newsletter.  If you don’t want the truth there are several choices available to you elsewhere.  Stating the obvious is what I’m here to do.  Compromise with a band of marauders on a lonely road with no help in sight will more than likely hasten your demise.  What is right and what is wrong are the only truths that matter.  If it is right say it is right.  If it is wrong say it is wrong.  There is no need to consider someone’s feelings in the matter.  I have seen both instances and I am here to tell you that the more effective route to take is telling the truth and living with the consequences.  If you do that I promise you God will take care of you.  Only if you are righteous in his ‘Word’ and not an Evangelical telling you what is right.

Issue 2:  Evangelicals, Let’s Talk

I’ll begin with an easy one because us Christian folk should know this.  Out of the Authorized King James Bible.  Revelation 12: 7-9 “And there was war in Heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Now to help those evangelicals that are bench warmers and not reading the scripture as a check on learning (Pastor and congregant must line up the truth) which is a requirement by the way to be a Christian.  This is the irresponsible nature of fake Christianity throughout centuries.  Claim piety for evil acts because the preacher authorized it.  Listen to me.  If God sent us President Trump then God is immoral right?  If God teaches those in authority over us to lie through their teeth then God is immoral right?  If God teaches those in authority to never admit fault or their sins even when God tells them he knows what they did (hint David with Bathsheba) then God is immoral right?  Please evangelicals, you’ve been taught that whatever you do is right for so long that your delusions have become your reality.  Keep reading if you dare!

Of course in the mouth of two or three witnesses let the truth be established.  2 Peter 2:4 “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment”.  Now the way these two scriptures read to me is that there isn’t an excuse built into those verses.  It clearly reads that those that choose a side receive the rewards and consequences for either selection.

Evangelicals.  This is what the scripture means and stop telling yourselves that I never liked or supported all the things about Donald Trump.  Some of you like saying, “I don’t agree with his behavior or everything he says, but I do support him being against abortion.”  Stop.  Now you’re acting or reasoning as a child would.  Married evangelicals.  Did you marry two-thirds of your spouse or one hundred percent of your spouse?  Come on.  There is no such thing as cherry picking our leaders decisions.  You know you get the entire package.  Come on now.  Stop acting like President Trump putting kids in cages you didn’t support by voting for him.  Remember there in God’s scripture that says anyone that harms children something about a millstone, neck, and cast in the sea.  Yeah, you’re complicit with President Trump and the God awful thing about it you knew the man is an immoral and unrepentant representative of humanity.  Yeah, stop kidding yourselves.  You can’t ask forgiveness for the things he does for him in his name.  President Trump has to do it himself.  No?  So I guess Saul after being blinded on the road to Damascus found religion because somebody else said Saul now believes that killing Christians is wrong.  Sound familiar?

Evangelicals, you know what’s one of the worst feeling in the world?  Believing in somebody you can’t count on.  Evangelicals, you’ve placed God in that category.  God is now a liar, cheat, inciter, seditionist, insurrectionist, immoral and thinks only of himself.  So to evangelicals it makes sense that God would send us President Donald Trump because that’s who God is to you.  I’m pretty sure that God said he is good.  God said no one in 1 Corinthians 6:9 “The unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God”.  Evangelicals, how do you line up your support of President Trump with the word of God?  Right, that’s why so many unbelievers don’t want anything to do with the ‘Church’.

Okay.  Evangelicals.  The next paragraphs are going to really be hard to read and may scare your minds, so I recommend you stop reading right now.  Let’s keep talking then for those that are willing to correct themselves before they wreck themselves.  Oh, this is good evangelicals.  You don’t get to claim innocence because you’re only voting along party lines.  Voting Republican doesn’t relieve you of your choice.  Newsflash.  Remember that little connection to Satan that those angels made.  Their allegiance to him and thus suffer the same fate as him?  Don’t say that.  Don’t say you only agreed with Satan because he said he would keep the streets of Heaven clean better than God.  Don’t say Satan told you that he was more powerful than the one who created it all?  Don’t say Satan promised me a cushy job if I would back him over God?  In human words, The United States Constitution is God and President Donald Trump is Satan and the people cast him and his angels out!

This next to last paragraph is for the rest of America.  There is no requirement or need to extend the hand of reconciliation to those who oppose America period!  That’s not the example we were taught by the Almighty.  You either check yourself or find another country to live in.  There are plenty in the world that will take lunatics.  I’m a Black American.  The Authorized King James Bible teaches me to “love they neighbor as myself”.  It also teaches me to welcome them back into the fold only after they (individual converts him or herself) remind themselves of what’s right and what’s wrong and keep fidelity with such.

Evangelicals, if you wish to support the Republican Party and I don’t care either way; then maybe you all should demand that your party stop pricking at the worst emotions in all of us and put forth a man or woman that is truly moral.  I said moral not perfect.  Somebody that can admit when a mistake is made and acknowledge it.  Evangelicals tell your Republican insurrectionists to stop falsely saying government is the problem.  Check out 2 Peter 2:10.  Again, healing starts with telling the truth.  As Christians, all of you should know better.  More citizens voted for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.  President Trump lost reelection.  God didn’t send us President Trump in the first place.  He just allowed us to suffer from our own decision.  Only God is good as his son Jesus Christ said.  Sorry evangelicals, you picked the wrong side.  Are you really willing to be cast into hell with Satan?

Remember Georgia

Remember Now Thy Creator

Georgians.  Remember some of you when the Civil Rights Era was nationalized and the people of Alabama and Georgia were faced with a huge choice.  The state governments were planning an international airport and were scouting locations between Birmingham and Atlanta.  The final decision was made to build it in Atlanta because certain men and women went to those in power and told them that it would make a greater Georgia for all her people.  The same choice is front of you now.

The United States of America must move forward.  Prosperity can only come from those who believe everybody deserves a share of it.  Republicans do not believe that and that is why Birmingham missed the chance at reconciliation that Georgia took advantage of.  Send the Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Rafael Warnock to the United States Senate.  There they will extend that great decision your men and women made to let the future come.  I write all of this testimony because I’m from Birmingham.  I still love the state of my birth, but I will forever be injured by the decisions Alabama made during those horrible times of oppression.

Atlas, I am a child of Alabama.  I also love my neighbor as myself and I know that there are people that do not love.  The selfish nature of hatred has consequences Georgia.  Fight for a Georgia that is better for all.

This biweekly newsletter will seek to explain the pain and suffering mainly people of color endure through no fault of their own.  The dehumanizing excuses our people always seem to elicit from people in power that make our Christian Brothers and Sisters accept their reasoning as if it was uttered by the Almighty.  Lastly what I see with my own eyes begs the question from my conscience.  “Are we loving or can we really love our neighbor as ourselves”.

Issue 1:  Address Your Wrongs

Let’s start at the police.  Our United States Supreme Court has issued God Power to the police to conduct themselves under the direction of evil’s edicts.  What do I mean by that?  The Supreme Court says that without the mandate of God’s spoken word tying their hands, the police should not be subject to that verse that says, “everything be done decently and in order.”  This was too high a doctrine to follow.  Turn the police loose on every citizen and particularly citizens of color and only good will ensue.  

‘Qualified Immunity’.  Explanation.  Qualified means to be skilled in the requirements of a specific task.  Immunity is to be protected from something.  Taken together these two words are now meaningless when it comes to the United States Supreme Court decision granting the police their God power.  What reasonable, mature and righteous person would say that the police must operate above the law?  Who would stand forward and say that the police are conducting a job with righteous discretion?  Where are the examples of accountability that informs every citizen that when the police while exercising this ‘Power’ acknowledges their errors?

Oh, I haven’t even gotten to the point that the police are human beings just like everybody else.  So what college educated white man (Really, you didn’t know they always made the rules) thought of this doctrine of ‘Qualified Immunity’.  Yeah, they created a class of citizens that are completely untouchable.  Oh, almost forgot, so qualified immunity also means that the police doesn’t have to know right from wrong in the performance of their duty.  That is left to ordinary citizens to prove this person has the moral capacity present within their conscience at the time they indiscriminately kill other human beings.

If you’re beginning to get the feeling that I would trust an atheist with judging a situation righteously you’re right.  I’ll give you one example of why I believe that allowing anybody in authority to be unchecked produces human tragedy.  The police encounter drug addicts regularly.  In mental health we know that we must self-care on a regular basis or the build-up within the profession of all the issues they must work with clients to solve could be detrimental to their overall health.  How a drug addict thinks that every time they use somehow doesn’t show a negative to their life’s balance sheet.  How every transaction involving drugs of any kind in which they’ve loss control of goes through and shows a deficit.

What do you think it does to a police officer that encounters the issues and troubles of the human beings they must interact with constantly?  Don’t say it.  I’ll say it.  I have dedicated my life to answering the one question.  Why?  It is easier for human beings to solve their problems by ignoring them.  Postponing them by whatever means available to them.  Projecting them onto others that point out our faults.  What makes you think (I’m talking to every human being) just because they hold a position of authority and power they are immune to the things that plague all of us?  Right, so our laws are written by people who don’t wish to deal with the human condition and this indifference has resulted in atrocities in the name of the law for centuries!

How do we stop the onslaught of degradation when so much of our history has celebrated it?  Yes I mean describing people of color in our judicial system as monsters.  I mean darkening their skin because so many people loved him playing football but not so much when he married a pretty white woman.  I mean judging children playing in parks with toy guns as threatening and rolling up on them shooting as just routine police work.  How do you heal when the wounds are constantly split open again and again with malice?

The healing starts when you have a more diverse group of people that not only say they have a higher moral code, but actually show it in the policies they put forward.  Let me say this and say it loudly.  Nobody speaks for God!  If all these folks that claim piety in their decision process when in authority, then answer me why they flip back and forth between good and evil by which way the wind blows.  Most people don’t want another human being speaking for them let alone someone they love.  Where did this novel idea arise that God needs one of his creation to speak for him?

So when a leader protects her charge from accountability which shows clearly they are in the wrong it degrades her authority just as it would for a man.  Stop!  What’s the old saying.  When you find yourself in a hole stop digging! Healing starts with telling the truth!  How hard is that to understand.  It’s vexing.  Vexing I say.  Lying harms your mental health.  How hard is that to understand?  The magnitude is enormous when our leaders lie to us and we think it’s funny.  If half of us believe they are losing power, so what.  The country is governed by majority rule period.  Get over yourself and move on.  We are not destroying America today, tomorrow or in the future.  America is moving to heal all her wrongs.  Let it play out.
