Over the past couple of years I have seen more racism openly displayed then I have seen in my life time.
I am going to be short brief and to the point letting you the reader in on something that isn’t of secret. Acts of racism is offensive and displeasing to God.
My question is. Why can’t we all treat each other as equal individuals? No matter what demographics you may have come from! No matter where one may live! No matter how much money one might make, at the end of the day, we all bleed and breath the same.
Institutional racism also known as systemic racism is a form of racism practiced within society as well as political point of views.
Racism can be seen and detected in processes such as attitudes, behaviours towards a certain race or group that could lead to discrimination, prejudice, ignorance, thoughtlessness amongst many. Racism creats hurt feelings, emotional trauma from within.
Stereotyping different ethnic backgrounds is not the answer as to unifying our country nor glorifying God.
The word Institutional racism also reflects back to political power, education, wealth, healthcare, housing, as well as criminal injustice acts, just to name a few.
Racism has existed throughout history. It’s time we put an end to this unwanted dishonorable practice of ethnics.
The belief that one color is superior/inferior than the other based on the color of ones skin, the place of their birth, the language one may speak, should not define anyone, this is nonsense.
In order to change, we must all come together as a nation not as a divided country.
As an African American woman, I have been taken back by the words that have been constantly displayed by someone that should stand by our American belief system “United We Stand Divided We Fall. In God We Trust.”
“Christ came to tear down walls not build them up.”
Ephesians 2:14 KJV
I have seen nothing but division constantly displayed, by our POTUS stemming from angry chants, “Go back to where you came from” to the word “infested” this is vicious, venomous to the up and coming children of today and tomorrow.
This unethical practice also pours out into individual mindsets as well as hearts, creating race wars, division within our country.
I see it on social media as well as television daily. Indiviuals arguing amongst themselves that have never met, which saddens my heart.
Walking in love instead of hate isn’t too much to ask for from anyone.
Racial separation is the belief of a racist, prejudice individuals or a group of individuals that different races should segregate and apart from another.
I am one with the mindset that we should all live in a world where color should not be of an issue. We are more alike than different.
Keeping our country safe from harm, getting our country back on track as to creating jobs, identifying the problem in reguards to our countries homelessness, healthcare issues to name a few focus points, should be the main focus not “We don’t want you here because you are of the wrong race, color, sex or religion.
I have a couple of scriptures from the Bible I would like to share in regards to racism.
“We are all made in the image of God.”
Genesis 1:27 KJV
” We are all sinners corrupted by the fall .”
Romans 3 : 10 KJV
“Heaven has no room for racism.” Woe to us if our vision of the good life here on earth will be completely undone by the reality of new heavens and new earth yet to come. Antagonism towards people of another color, language, or ethnic background is antagonism towards God himself and his design for eternity. Christians should reject racism, and do what they can to expose it and bring it to the gospel to bear upon. not because we love pats on the back for our moral outrage or are desperate for restored moral authority, but because we love God and submit ourselves to the authority of his word.
Revelations 5:9-10, 7:9 -12, 22:1-5
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of it’s creed: We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal.”
Civil Rights Leader: Martin Luther King Jr.
In conclusion; racism has existed for years, my thoughts on racism. This is history repeating itself year after year, decade after decade.
We must stop this division of hatred. Through prayer and fasting as to that breakthrough.
I have family and friends of different ethnic background, as well as children. I see no color!!! Even though we are of different background make up. My motto, love each other as you would have love for one’s self. There isn’t any room for hate.
