|Anvóy America||Old Corrupt World|
|As decedents of the same parents, we should be united in doing good and loving our neighbor. People should be judged by their character and performance, not their outward appearance.||Skin color, status, gender and other characteristics are used to distract, divide, inflame and weaken the people – and thus empower the political elite.|
From Many, One: e pluribus unum.
We are One Blood
Corrupt manipulators prefer to use hatred and fear because they are more powerful emotions than love. Unfortunately, we have a tendency to believe the lies that they spread to “make news” and divide us. We have a tendency to hold a grudge, rather than forgive and heal.
Prejudice and injustice is human nature. The theory of evolution, which says that man is just another animal that exploits and kills for survival, bolstered this type of arrogant, secular mentality. It led both black and white people to enslave other black and white people throughout world history.
We thank God (and the many who died during the Civil War) that the injustice of American slavery ended a century ago, but unfortunately powerful elites still use elaborate schemes to enslave and exploit decent, hard-working people of all colors. It is the duty of every human to strive against unfair discrimination and live in unity and peace. This is only possible with the spirit of love and gracious forgiveness for past sins.
It is not easy to forgive. We all have the tendency to blame others for our problems. It is hard to admit, but generally we are the problem. We all have a sinful nature. If we would have been born in the past, most of us would have gone along with slavery. It would not have mattered what color our skin was. To deny this and claim that one color is more evil than the other is the definition of racism.
A few people would have given their lives to fight against slavery. Again, the skin color of this courageous few would not have mattered. To claim otherwise is racist. To continue to blame or privilege people based on their color is to continue the evil of racism. Racism will only end when we stop exploiting or judging people by the color of their skin.
