People of every color have been enslaved by some group or another at some time in history. It's an evil practice, and there have always been people willing to commit evil deeds. Slavery still exists today - millions of people are enslaved by tyrannical governments. Now, this doesn't diminish the suffering of those who were kept as slaves in our nation's past, but just bear with me; I'm trying to make a point. There are chains of iron, and there are chains that are invisible. Some forms of enslavement are self-imposed. We may not be able to alter our circumstances, but we CAN alter how we react to those circumstances.
Yeah, racism exists in America, and I believe that it is the Communists who are constantly fanning the flames of racial hatred. It's the old "divide and conquer" ploy. But thankfully, there are PLENTY of people of color who don't buy into that. They don't go around feeling sorry for themselves because some ignorant, evil people of a different color want to discriminate against them. They choose to live a life that is worthy of respect, honor and admiration. They don't play the victim! They work hard, and many have served their country with distinction. Many have given their lives for this country. People of ALL colors have!
Now, it's one thing to be proud of your race and whatever country your ancestors came from. But at what point do you start identifying yourself as an AMERICAN??! Not an African-American, not a Native American, not ANY kind of hyphenated American, but as just AN AMERICAN??!
There is no amount of reparations that can make up for what our ancestors may or may NOT have done to each other. And what kind of justice demands that we pay for the sins of our fathers? There is only ONE REMEDY FOR EVIL, and that is the Word of God Almighty! But the Communists have had a great deal of success in turning the hearts of many against God. And you know what? When you take God out of the picture, EVIL FILLS THE VOID! But discrimination STOPS when you start seeing other people through God's eyes! The Holy Bible says:
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16 NKJV)
GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD! Not just blacks, not just whites, but people of every color, because God doesn't care what color your skin is! So neither should we.
“And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.” (Luke 6:31 NKJV)
