The STRIPES of Healing
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 4: There Are FOUR or More Witnesses to the Truth
I will explain the topic of this issue in a little bit of writing, but first I want to acknowledge to all that seek the truth that America is finally adding every voice to the chorus of her song. The verses are still being written line by line and will come forth when the singers from each race gather to harmonize and belt the tune for all to hear. Now to explain the topic of discussion for this issue.
What was it that one Republican official said, oh “We didn’t send him up there to vote his conscious. We didn’t send him up there to do the right thing”. Another Republican in Texas said what, oh “Only the strong will survive and the weak will ‘parish’ (perish actually)”. I’m not finished yet. What did another Republican do, oh “Orlando is awesome, it’s not as nice as Cancun”. The fourth Republican said, oh “Yes, that’s the plan with Federal assistance to help them pay their electricity bills. I have to give you a fifth Republican, oh “Governor Abbott of Texas, oh “This is the result of the Green New Deal of wind and solar power”. Number five Republican, a Senator from Missouri, oh “I objected to the electoral college certification”. Now what American greatness do you get out of these voices?
I get the feeling that these voices would like to take us back to whips and chains. How dare you pay your taxes and demand good governance! How dare you expect me to care about the people that voted me into office, or better said I only care for the people with ‘money’ that voted me into office. The rest of you are just a nuisance I can whip into a stupor to believe that somebody wants free money (Blacks and every poor White person) and by voting Republican I will make sure the money only goes to the rich. Your response Republican voters? Sure! There is nothing like the onset of a preventable hardship to clear the mind of some of the ignorant among us. Some people sadly will never believe the truth (to which they have the right and God given freedom to remain stupid) and no amount of facts in evidence as stated above will convince them.
Let us first understand why their cognitive abilities are dulled. Romans 10 verse 2-3 “For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.” That is why you saw all these false prophets last year sprouting foolishness that God wanted Donald Trump to remain the leader of this great nation. Now not only will they have to stand before God and answer for that blasphemous statement, but there will not be any idiots around giving a standing ovation when these false prophets answer God.
I have spoken of this widely known phenomenon about one race in power and the cognitive decay that comes with it. It leads to madness! In a diverse country such as America there is the sense of inevitable might by strength of force that one race will never hold onto power forever. It is insanity to think so. No I will not spend a great deal of time listing all the contributions from people who do not look like one another to the goal or great endeavor of this country. To prove that a land exists where governing by all the people is possible, desperately and unmistakably woven into the fabric of its creation. Anyone that stands before people and lies about that fact is doing it for their own profit. Let me describe it another way. That’s just like somebody standing on the dry floor of the Red Sea after all of God’s chosen has passed safely through and this person thinks that putting both hands on the wall of water will keep it from crashing down upon him. That is the meaning of that stupid phrase “Make America Great Again”. Great for who? Great in what time period? How great is a country that doesn’t empower all its citizens?
Do you know what the word ‘publican’ meant in Biblical times? A ‘publican’ describes a person that collected taxes. What you ask then are the ‘Republicans’? Ask them that question and then remember the answer for it will enlighten you as to whether they even know why they are members of their party and government was and is the major part of their historical record. Ask them why then they seek to distort the purpose of government which is to fund the needed operations of the ‘state’. Ask them was that not the way the Romans formed armies and dominated the world? Did they not erect buildings and help to create an elaborate and interconnected society? Maybe the Republicans are afraid of the truth getting out and the people turning on them. Oh well I guess it does pay to keep your supporters ignorant. For how long though?
Finally, to the truth being told to you more than one time and you still not believing it. Saint Matthew 18 verse 16 “But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES EVERY WORD MAY BE ESTABISHED.” I still fight my impulses every day not to marvel at what I have witnessed. Let me get this straight. I wish to not be under government rule, but I want government to come to my aid when my chosen government looks upon me with contemptible disdain. Yeah, Texans I must commend you for letting your state government feel so strongly about you. I am sure they will help you fix your power, water, gas and winterize your infrastructure. Sarcasm seems an ineffective illustration to fit the situation in Texas. Republicans, I must use one of your Federal representatives word to describe the ‘wool they have pulled over your eyes’. It is awesome to be elected by people to whom you don’t owe nothing in return!
There you have it. Do I need to spell out how to heal from this self-inflicted disaster, or would Texans just like to whipped across the back until there is no skin or muscle left to rip from your bones? Wow! Self government. If that is the manifestation of it I’ll take my chances with ‘everything being done decently and in order’. Yeah I read that somewhere in the Bible too.
