Conflicted: Sunday’s Message

th (5)I get into trouble, often times, when I say black people will out Pope the Pope, particularly black women. The church of today is in such disarray concerning the truth it gives the minds of the folk to enhance your soul.

I highly doubt that you were given a message like this in a church this morning. As you listen to the “word” from someone while praising and looking at a picture of a white Jesus watching the preachers show. I hope this message will cause you to think about the reality of your life, and not a mythical version of life your donation bought this morning.

It is a proven historical fact that black people were the first people on earth. Thereby, black people were the first to have a civilization thousands of years before “His-Story” distorted and wrote black history about African out of existence. Also, there is a notion in the minds of many; purposely instilled that racism is about the color of one’s skin. NO – NO – it is a system driven by power and control, primarily rooted economics. Yes, racism has everything to do with money and power.

Webster, the dictionary gives a definition of racism, which is a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement. Usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others. It is a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine of discrimination.

Derived from this comes the concept of “Manifest Destiny”, which is the belief of white folk or a doctrine held chiefly in the middle and latter part of the 19th century and in their minds today. They believed it was the destiny of the U.S. to expand its territory over the whole of North America and to extend and enhance its political, social, and economic influences all over the world. Further, God gave white folks authority to control the earth and all that is in it.

Look at it this way, the European or so-called white people make up less than one-tenth of the global population. It is because of this that it becomes significant because if any other race of people sexually interacts or breed with a white person, in significant number, they will no longer exist. Therefore, they must use the concept of racism as a tool to maintain the survival of their species. Likewise, it is a useful tool to justify genocide and murder of people of color around the world in the name of God.

I know you have asked yourself this question; how can so few rule so many? Or maybe you asked; are they smarter than everyone else on the planet? The answer is no! However, one could argue that they are very good at deception, extraordinary thieves, more devious and barbaric than any other people on the planet. When blacks, unarmed I might add, are being killed at record rates, it might be time to stand up to the ills we face, instead of praying for something that has done nothing to help the plight of black people. Other than make and keep this race of people docile.

Black folk, you have been worshiping a white Jesus and praying for him to make your lifes better. It’s been four hundred years, how has that worked out? Keep in mind, if someone control what you think, they never have to worry about what you are thinking. Therefore, do not forget who and why the message you were given today came from! Black people have been taught that a white savior is coming – he’s not – and there is no streets paved with gold waiting for you either when you die! This is conflicted thinking in every sense of the word. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
