It’s Past Time for Americans to Reject the Politics of Racial Division

The fabric of our great nation is literally being ripped to shreds by forces who don’t really want what’s best for America and if the majority of us don’t acknowledge that and start doing something to turn the tide, we will cease to exist as a nation founded on the principles we all hold so dear. At no other time in our history have political leaders so readily stepped before news cameras and brazenly fanned the flames of racism and civil unrest, and we have to start asking why.

When we have a president who only publicly comments on interactions with police when the victim is black (with the SHAMEFUL exception of one Laquan McDonald), as President Obama has done time after time, always attributing it to racism without knowing the facts or anything about the hearts of the police officers involved, we shouldn’t be surprised to see what happened in Dallas last night. When President Obama insists on ripping off the scabs of our nation’s dark history regarding slavery and repeatedly tells black Americans they can’t get justice in this country because whites are racist, it’s no wonder we’ve experienced the greatest racial divide in America since the civil rights movement of the 1960s. So Americans have to ask why President Obama and many other Democratic leaders openly incite racial division in our country and what’s in it for them.

It’s time for Americans to ask why President Obama’s response after every police shooting involving a black individual is to accuse police officers and our judicial system of “systemic racism” at the same time he refuses to acknowledge that self-acclaimed Muslims who have committed horrific acts of terror around the world in the name of Islam are in fact Islamic terrorists. And it’s time for Americans to ask why President Obama gets visibly angry and passionately defends Islam regardless of their repeated slaughter of innocent people, declaring that they have nothing to do with Islam, and yet never fails to attribute every deadly interaction blacks have with police to systemic racism. It’s also time for Americans to ask why President Obama’s willing to blame whites, police and our justice system in general for the problems facing many black Americans at the same time he totally ignores the deplorable conditions in inner cities throughout this country; most notably in his own hometown of Chicago.

If black lives really matter to President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Democratic leaders and the Black Lives Matter movement, they’d be outraged by the black lives being lost in the largest cities in our country, including Chicago. Over the Fourth of July weekend alone, sixty-four people were shot and four died. So far this year, there have been at least three hundred and twenty-nine homicides in Chicago, which is more than the total number of homicides in New York and Los Angeles put together, and most of them were blacks killing blacks, as previously noted by Montel Williams. In fact, the homicide rates have increased significantly in major American cities, which FBI Director James Comey attributes to less aggressive policing due to what he calls “the viral video effect.” Of course, the White House pushed back on that common sense explanation and the White House Spokesman, Josh Earnest, said, “This is not a widespread phenomenon, at least based on what we know now…This administration makes policy decisions that are rooted in evidence, that are rooted in science. We can’t make broad, sweeping policy decisions, or draw conclusions based on anecdotal evidence. That’s irresponsible and ultimately counterproductive.” If this matter wasn’t so serious, that comment would be laughable since that’s exactly what President Obama has done over and over again whenever blacks die as the result of interaction with police and every time he’s denied that clearly Islamic terrorism was in fact Islamic terrorism as he did with Fort Hood and Orlando. Needless to say, we’d all be a lot better off if President Obama and his administration actually did what they say they do, but our president just isn’t able to view anything through any lens other than his own racial bias (racism) as he accuses everyone else of being racist. And that’s well documented here; particularly when it comes to his double standard for BLM activists and Muslims.

Sadly, I wasn’t at all surprised to see that same defensive attitude reflected in the official statement put out by Black Lives Matter about the murder of five Dallas police officers at one of their rallies last night, in which they said, “Black activists have raised the call for an end to violence, not an escalation of it. Yesterday’s attack was the result of the actions of a lone gunman. To assign the actions of one person to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible.” Needless to say, that’s an outright lie because they’ve been inciting and calling for the murder of police for at least a year and a half, as you can see for yourself here, here and here. Yet President Obama, Hillary Clinton and the Democrats have enthusiastically embraced them and even finance them, knowing full well what they do. No one in this country thinks for a minute that any white or conservative group (such as the Tea Party) could literally call for the murder of blacks, police or politicians and not end up in jail for hate crimes or inciting violence, so it’s way past time for the American people to ask WHY this insanity is not only accepted by the Democratic party but sanctioned and encouraged by them. Our country has truly lost its soul if we don’t put a stop to this because it’s literally destroying us. And despite what they say, the BLM rally in Dallas last night was not peaceful because they were walking down the street with their hands up in the air chanting “Hands up…don’t shoot.” But we know that’s another lie promoted by BLM because even the Obama Department of Justice had to admit that Michael Brown was the aggressor, that Officer Darren Wilson killed him in self-defense, and the testimony that he had his hands up was an outright lie. So while they don’t want to be blamed for the murders of police officers around the country, particularly the racially motivated murders of five Dallas police officers last night, they’re the ones blaming all police for the actions of individual police officers and are in fact responsible for inciting the murder of the five who died last night and many others around the country. And based on everything I’ve seen today, they have no intention of changing their rhetoric and racially divisive activities because the Democrats couldn’t win and stay in power without them, so the Democrats who have financed and embraced them are just as responsible.

If our president, Democrats and other Americans really cared about the black lives being lost and destroyed by the thousands in our inner cities, we’d do something about the disgraceful lack of education now so prevalent in our country (which Democrats won’t ever do because they rely on the support and funding of the teachers’ unions to get elected and stay in office) and give them a real chance to better their lives and escape the trap of poverty, which is today’s form of slavery. And we’d get rid of policies encouraging the demise of the family structure that’s so essential for a healthy society and do something to make a “real” difference in the outrageously high unemployment numbers among black youth if we really cared about their lives. If we really care about our black children and all children, we’d get back to teaching them the value of hard work, to excel at whatever they do and how to deal with conflict and disappointment in life; otherwise, they just aren’t equipped to deal with the real life experiences we all face day after day. That’s why so many young men are so disillusioned and unable to effectively channel their disappointment, anger and frustration to effect change. And when our youth are constantly fed a diet of violence and disrespect for anyone with differing opinions, women and any kind of authority (particularly police), it’s no wonder that’s reflected in their behavior. When our youth are taught that they’re little more than the sum total of their biological urges and desires and encouraged to define their identity by that alone, and when their vapid lives are filled with alcohol and drug abuse, it’s no surprise that they have no real sense of worth and value and are therefore vulnerable to being sucked in by any cause that gives them a sense of belonging and purpose.

So I hope and pray that all Americans will start judging politicians for the fruit they bear instead of their shameless pandering, empty rhetoric and divisive words, which have intentionally spawned racial division in our country. Sadly, the only way many politicians stay in (or
gain) power is to persuade those they proclaim victims of “white privilege,” racism and other social and economic injustices that they’re the only ones who really care about them and will DO something about their plight and that Republicans are racist and don’t care about anything but themselves. Yet the facts prove that’s not true because the Democrats have done absolutely nothing to better the lives of black Americans; in fact, there’s evidence that they’re actually much worse off than when President Obama was elected , but things have improved in one state after another under the leadership of Republican governors (such as Wisconsin and Ohio). So what offends me the most about the politics of racial division is that it literally keeps people trapped in a system that fails if they succeed, and despite President Obama’s racist assumptions and statements otherwise, that breaks my heart. When I think of the young men and women who literally have no hope of realizing the “American dream” just because they’re being used as political pawns, I get so angry that it makes me cry–because I think that’s a crime and America is better than this. Every child we see in failing schools, trapped in meaningless lives and addicted to drugs and alcohol doesn’t stand a chance just because they’re more valuable to politicians as pawns in their power hungry games than who they are as human beings, and if anything’s not American, that’s it. So I pray that the eyes of our understanding will be opened and that instead of politics as usual, something will be done about the countless children and young adults now trapped in poverty by those who need to keep them there just so they can stay in office or get elected. That’s why we have to reject the politics of racial division once and for all and focus on what has to be done to make real and meaningful changes in the lives of all Americans, most especially in the lives of impoverished and underprivileged black Americans; but that won’t happen until we elect political leaders who will do something about that rather than use racism to divide America for their own political agendas. However, as Rahm Emanuel said, the president believes that they should ”Never allow a good crisis to go to waste…”, which is why many Democrats foment division and a constant state of crisis in America—that’s the only way to justify their “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” agenda. But it’s possible that they’ve gone too far this time and the American people are starting to wake up to the truth, which we know will set us free as Jesus taught in John 8:31-32!
