For those who have been keeping up with my blog, here it is, part 3.
As I said in last week blog, the reason for all this racial tension in America isn’t because of Pres. Trump. The real person too blame is Pres. Obama.
As you know we remembered Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday tomorrow. He was a big civil rights march movement leader. Everyone should remember his, “I had a Dream” speech. In the speech he said, “all are created equal.”
I’m not saying that it happened overnight, by no means. We still struggle with equality for everyone.
As the United States elected their first African American President in 2008, with Barak Obama. He could had lived up to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy, but he failed at that. One thing it proved was that Obama was only interested in himself, like so many of these career politicians.
I have to admit I was dupe by him and his promise of change in America. I felt that he was different than what we had in Washington. He proved to be just like all the rest.
Where’s the change Pres. Obama? It sure didn’t happened under you. The change is happening right now under Pres. Trump.
When Obama was President, there were lots of cops shooting; in which the cops had to shoot the victims just to protect themselves. It just happened, that the victims were people of colors. When that happened, what did Obama do? He made a big racial stink out of it. Then the fake news media just ate it up.
Now when Pres. Trump make any racial comment, the fake news media calls him a racist bigot. Like it was ok for Obama but not for Trump! If they want to be treated as equal, they need quit crying foul and playing the race card. I don’t think Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted it this way.
He, like Rodney King wants everyone to just get along. Remember what Rodney King said, “Can’t we all just get along.”
This country was founded on the melting pot theory. We are one nation with many nationality. We are a diverse country; yet we don’t act like it.
It was Abraham Lincoln who was behind freeing the slaves in this country.
It was Ronald Reagan who signed the bill to make Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday a national holiday.
They were 2 Republicans President and the greatest President at that.
What had the Democrats done for equality for all but rather complain about it? Or like Obama, make race a big issues during his whole time in office?
I belong to a multinational church in Moorhead, MN. Let me tell you, we do much better at diversity than this country does. How we do it is because of the love we have for one another and for serving God.
Equality is a hard things to get because we are not all equal. Somebody will always cry foul one way or another.
I remember after the bombing of the World’s Trade Center on 9/11. I was working at Concordia College at the time. Let me tell you this: that day, I felt tension in the air while at work at Concordia College.
I think the reasons behind the tension were 2 reasons. The American people were scared and concerned for this country. The other reason was, some of the college students, that was from another country; especially the Middle East, was scared for their safety.
So I guess there is our equality, our common ground with one another.
If we can just find common grounds with people of different race, color, and nationality; we can get along.
As I said in a previous blog, not all Muslims are terrorist. It’s only the radical Islam. The radical Muslim even attack their own people if they don’t go along with them.
Even Christians have some bad seeds as well to give Christians a bad name. As Donny Osmond sang, “One bad apple doesn’t spoil the whole batch.”
So those who wants equality, you must come to common ground with others. Don’t constantly play the race card; without knowing the facts.
One thing that did happened after 9/11, we all became united. United we stand, united we fall.
There is always going to be hate in the world. The devil wants us to hate others. We don’t have to hate though.
Jesus taught us to love one another despite our differences. As John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave us His one and only son; so that we may have life, eternally.” Jesus is loved and the world is hate!
