Before Almighty God, I speak the truth: I love black people. TheAlmighty is my witness. I like being friends with them and make extra effort to get along with them. There are many fine Americans of African descent. Years ago, white people did mistreat black people and that is a fact. Even after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, there were many years of discrimination and mistreatment. It is shameful that black people were given second class water fountains to drink from, they were made to sit at the back of buses and were treated as inferior. Truth is what matters to me and I am not afraid to speak the truth. It is the truth that makes us free. I don’t know a more objective person than myself and I have to say, some of the black leaders are the biggest problem of race relations in these United States of America. I believe that a good percentage of black people would lead a better life and would not be nearly as bitter, if it were not for some of their leaders keeping things stirred up.
I want you to consider a thing. If racism were still as big of a problem in the USA as some preach, there is no way that Barack Obama would have ever been made president. Though many resist this idea, Barack Obama being president is proof positive that for the most part racism has been overcome. Drop your rocks and hear me out. Americans of African descent are still a minority in this country and it is impossible that Obama could be president without the help of millions of non-blacks. People like Al Sharpton just will not let it rest. Al may mean well, but the battle Martin Luther King Jr. started has generally speaking been won. Did you hear me? It was won years ago, but there are these die-hards that stubbornly keep it alive. Thankfully there are some black leaders such as Ben Carson, Allen West, Herman Cain, Allen Keyes, Clarence Thomas, J.C. Watts and many others, who are flourishing right here in the USA. I would vote for some of these black men for president in a heartbeat. Opportunity is available for those blacks who are willing to seize upon it. Why in the world would Americans of African descent keep following men like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, when there are much greater black leaders like I mentioned to follow? Why are these men demonized? They are demonized, because if these great black leaders were listened to, then the advantages some people exploit regularly would disappear and we can’t have that now can we? I will repeat what I said, “The civil rights war that Martin Luther King Jr. fought has been won!” Rejoice and be glad oh ye people! Almighty God has rewarded your efforts. Ongoing welfare, food stamps, free housing, etc. may have been well-intended and may have even helped for a while, but it is leading you deeper and deeper into dependency. Do you really like second and third generation welfare recipiency? It is not helping you; it is hurting you. It has led to a mentality of: “I am entitled to be given a living without earning it.” Listen to me here: we live in an imperfect world and no one is entitled to mooching off of everyone else forever. This includes white welfare as well. Obviously this approach has been an utter and complete failure. Our government has incentivised destructive behavior and so it is little wonder that many Americans of African descent struggle the way they do. It is amazing how people in power manipulate the poor so successfully to stay in power and I am talking about the Democrat Party specifically. Again, drop your rocks and hear me out. I am an independent and not a republican. Democrats pretend to be on the side of the blacks, but they are not. Just ask some of the great black men I mentioned earlier and they will tell you the truth of the matter. The Democrat Party lavishes the black community with more and more welfare, as if someone had won the lottery, and for the express purpose of obtaining their vote. It is de facto vote-buying: using the public purse to gain favor for one’s self.
I would like to make one more point, and I am talking from personal experience here. I have watched and evaluated over the years. There are many blacks who have a serious attitude problem. Like I said earlier, I go out of my way to be nice to black people. Too often I have been on the receiving end of this bad attitude. Many many blacks are racists. Once I was walking through a black neighborhood and a black guy yelled, “Honky on the street!” I have had black guys deliberately make me wait longer than was reasonably necessary. Recently a black lady at a toll booth for the Verrazano Bridge going into Brooklyn was giving me a bad attitude. She could tell that I am from the South. I believe the pendulum has swung the other direction. Sure, there are white racists in the USA, but I believe there are more black racists per-capita than white racists. I believe many of the black leaders have been so bitter about slavery, that they have defiled their black brethren with the same bitterness, and it splashes out all around on the rest of us. It is a real shame. The civil war and the Emancipation Proclamation ended slavery in this country 149 years ago. It is written in Hebrews 12:15, “Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.” Many many Americans of African descent carry this bitterness around, whether they know it or not. It has contaminated whole communities and for their own well-being they need to let it go. Bitterness is a vicious phenomena that enslaves the one that is bitter far more than hurting the person at whom they are bitter. These people are bitter about past slavery and are now slaves to their own bitterness. But there is a remedy. Whoever forgives will be forgiven, but whoever does not forgive will not be forgiven. In Christ there is life and healing.
