Far too many people have been taught to see 

reality through a very narrow and shallow lens. 

This leaves one feeling threatened by perceived


Some people can be unkind, harsh, ruthless and 

hateful towards others because they have been

 taught to fear people who are different from 

them or been deemed as a threat, based on the

 color of their skin

Some have made it their life's mission to sow seeds 

of hatred and create pain and hardships for others, 

based solely on skin color. This, in and of itself, is 

a useless, uncivil, divisive, unproductive, destructive 

and misplaced waste of emotions that pollutes the 

heart and robs people of their peace and joy. It is 

very injurious to the hater. It is like drinking poison 

and hoping the other person dies.

Hatred or hate is a profoundly bitter burden to bear. 

It confuses and paralyzes life. It distorts the vision 

and retards people from becoming their best and 

highest self.

Hating is an intensive and emotional dislike 

directed against individuals, groups, entities, 

objects, behaviors, or ideas. It is often associated 

with feelings of generational animosity, disgust, 

and an inclination towards hostility. Hate is not 

a respected family value.

Why are some people so evil that they would 

consciously go down into the most devilish parts 

of themselves in order to hurt and blindly disregard 

the personhood... the humanity in others?

The fact is, police officers react differently to white 

people who are pulled over as opposed to black people 

they pull over. For those who refuse to acknowledge the 

dehumanizing inequalities… just imagine what you would 

feel like if the situations were reversed. 

When people say black lives matter, it does not mean blue 

lives, white lives, red lives, yellow lives and brown lives 

don’t matter. All lives matter is an accurate statement, but 

this is not a matter of devaluing or comparing lives. When 

black people have encounters with biased people within 

the judicial system and police officers, it becomes very 

apparent to black people that they can't or won't see the 

humanity in black lives. Black lives have been grossly 

undervalued and to try to rationalize the horrible injustices 

is just wrong and mean-spirited. 

How would you feel if the police 

patrolled your community the way 

they patrol the black community?

Imagine this as being your experience 

in the United States of America?

How would you feel if every move 

you, your child, your brother, sister, 

mother, or father made had to be made 

with severe consideration for their life

 being threatened or taken by those

 who are to preserve law and order?

Far too many bad police officers 

routinely hurt and maim black people. 

How would you feel if the police and 

the justice system treated you as they 

treat blacks?



Black lives are at risk. Blacks are twice as likely to be 

hurt, arrested or killed by an officer. It is said that there 

are more black Americans in the United States justice 

system than there were slaves in 1850. 

The "Black Lives Matter" slogan is to raise 

awareness of the violence and discrimination blacks 

regularly face in the United States of America. This is a 

fight against injustice.

Black lives matters denounces systemic racism and police 

brutality, that is excessively used against black people. 

Let us be honest, many whites have unearned advantages 

over blacks, and when it is brought to the light... some 

tend to deflect, dismiss, misunderstand and read into it... a 

whole different meaning. That is cruel and selfish. It 

is time that we all look through a more righteous lens 

and stop deflecting the real issues minorities have to face 

when they interact with bad officers.

The big "aha" is that blacks are racially profiled and are 

more vulnerable to less than transparent judicial 

processes. Blacks are disproportionately targeted and 

subjected to biased and corrupt police bullying.

Let us not miss the point, black people are being murdered 

and brutalized by police who in many cases get a slap on 

the wrist. These are real lives that are being taken. These 

are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, sons 

and daughters. These are livesthat have been ripped 

away from their loved ones either through wrongful 

incarceration or tragic acts of violence. 

Contrary to what some may believe... 

African Americans are also a part

of God's amazing creation!

Whether all humans accept it or not... 

black lives really do matter and should 

not be subjected to blatant injustice,

 treated with contempt and/or regarded

 as subhuman, that is the point.

Usually, the things that others fear within themselves 

is what they hate about others. Some people don't like 

those who's strength reminds them of their weakness.

As a result, they project their unlovable and morally 

reprehensible ill will and negativity... outward.

The Bible is clear about hate... hate is just wrong.


Generating hatred is a waste of precious time.

Unlearn that horrible generational curse. There 

are no solutions found in hating others.

According to Scripture...

We are all made in God's image.

It is time for a real 


Let us pray for a revolution in 

the human heart. For such a time 

as this, love is the answer. 

We need God to revolutionize the 

human heart!

Hatred is poisonous. It produces bitterness that eats 

away at the hater's heart and mind. It can pollute and 

destroy people from within... and lead one to spiritual 

suicide. Hatred corrupts and consumes the person or 

people who harbor it. It can become harmful both to 

ourselves and others. 

Most of us don't know how to handle the dis-ease of 

hatred, especially when it is directed toward us. Let 

us detach ourselves from any hateful attacks that 

we face and follow Jesus' teachings found in the 

Ethics of the Kingdom... the Sermon on the Mount... 

sometimes called the Sermon on the Plain (Plateau). 

Keep in mind that Jesus wasn't a pastor of a church, 

so this profound "Sermon", on how we are to live, 

was different than the kind of religious message we

 hear today. Jesus taught about subjects such as 

prayer, justice, the needy, judging other people, etc.

Jesus' words are practical and concise. Jesus taught 

us to do better than what society allows or expects.

God is Love, and God has given us the mandate to 

love others. 

Jesus had a radical view of how we would treat 

people and just exactly who our neighbor was. 

He said love your neighbor, love your brother, 

even love your enemies. 

“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do 

good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, 

pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on 

one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes 

your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to 

everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs 

to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would 

have them do to you.

Luke 6:27-36

This sermon describes an attitude of the heart that 

expresses itself "positively" when others are negative, 

and generously when others are selfish. Jesus is 

showing us what our attitude should be toward those 

we would rather hate, and how to develop and live out 

that attitude.


Isaiah 26:3 reminds us, "You keep him in perfect peace 

whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You."

Africans and African Americans have suffered horrible 

injustices, i.e., racism, prejudice and mistreatment 

including, but not limited to: slavery, isolation, 

persecution, sterilization, medical experimentations, 

disproportionate incarcerations, senseless, vicious 

brutality and murder while in police custody.

Some are so blinded with isms... that they use their

inventive faculties, not for the good, but for the sole

 purpose of disregarding the personhood of others and 

going down into the most perverted and devilish parts of 

themselves in order to create strife, devise malicious, 

vicious, vindictive, devilish exclusions and schemings that 

will hurt their victims. Many times they do this as a means 

of elevating themselves.

According to the Scriptures, such 

people are an abomination in God's 


Trust, God has heard your voices and seen your misery, 

toil and oppression.
The 'Big Six' organizers of the Civil Rights Movement 

were: A. Philip Randolph, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 

James Farmer, Whitney Young, Jr., Roy Wilkins and John 

Lewis. They knew it was time to organize and develop a 

set of demands that would actually transform conditions in 

African American communities.

These Civil Rights leaders and thousands of freedom 

fighters were organized and like-minded. They knew it 

was their season to speak for those who could not speak 

for themselves. It was their time to stand up and defend 

the rights of the oppressed, brutalized and all who were

Black lives do matter. African Americans have helped to 

build and shape the character of our great nation.

Generational study is important because our ancestors 

were shapers who did the best they could in spite of the 

circumstances of their lives. 

Yes, it was their time to speak up and defend those who

 had been deprived of jobs and their inherent freedom as

 humans. They wanted others to realize that African 

Americans deserved dignity and respect.

These Civl Rights freedom fighters advocated for the

civil and economic rights of African Americans. They

 called for liberty, justice and an end to racism. 

They knew it was time to march... to protest racial 

discrimination and show support for the major civil 

rights legislation that was pending in Congress.

 These leaders applied their Biblical wisdom, 

philosophical understanding, reasoning, boldness, 

humility, professional knowledge, experience, 

observations, resources and clarity about injustices,

 disparities and inequalities while reasoning with their


These leaders and thousands of freedom fighters believed 

that little could be accomplished through violence, and 

that it would behoove all concerned to engage people of 

“Good will” in a nonviolent manner. In doing so, the 

powers that be would better hear their rallying cry 

regarding police brutality and/or murders of African

 Americans and not only understand, but be convinced 

of the need for equal rights and justice for all.

They believed by their strong, stable, reasonable, 

persistent and valid arguments... the administrative 

system would finally come to understand and support 

their efforts by working with them to resolve their 

issues and demands. They were of the belief that if 

people of "Good will" knew better... 

they would do better. 

Our ancestors hold many keys that can help us to

righteously and strategically resolve many of the 

issues we are faced with today. May we take heed,

 keep God in the forefront and march on.
Proverbs 14:31 (NIV)

“He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their 

Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.”

It has been almost 6 decades since the 1963 March on 

Washington; yet, many still lack the understanding about

 how to treat one another fairly.

Equal justice for all is a law and an ideal our country has 

unfortunately failed to live up to. Very few of us can say 

we have fully realized Dr. King's vision. We are still 

struggling to overcome forces of societal conflicts, official

inhumanity and ugly images of our nation's racist legacy. 

Black people are being bombarded by continued brutal 

incidents which are painful, appalling, disgusting, and

heartbreaking reminders that racism, hatred, animosity 

and injustice remains a very serious challenge, for the land 

of the free, where on paper, there is justice for all. How 

shameful to see America, in 2020, still deprived of justice 

and equality for all. 

Some see entire groups of people as... "Those people." 

When people shift their fears and hatred to "Those 

people," they are declaring that "Those people" 

are unacceptable things... they have no value; no worth. 

According to some..."Those people" do not matter to them 

because... "Those people" are less than human. They can 

then "Justify" acts of violence and degradation because...

they have denied the humanity of "Those people."

These antiquated ideals of white supremacy and denying 

African Americans of their God-given rights, are ideals 

our country should be embarrassed and appalled over.

Our actions and/or decisions may affect others, and those

effects may change the world around us. 

If we sow evil... we will eventually reap evil. Whatever we

intentionally do to others...we will reap, and we will all be

held accountable before God. No one will escape the

consequences of their choices.

When we are about to make a choice, let us think of the

consequences of that decision and ask ourselves, how will

this decision affect me and those around me?

Am I doing this for the approval of a secret society that's

bent on restoring inequality and abuse?

Will the ripple effect of this decision glorify God or man?

Am I asking for God’s will to be done or only my will,

regardless of the consequences?

Think about it,

Jesus embraced others with a radical disregard for

their race, tribe, creed, color, class, religion, language,

age, culture, disability, political beliefs, educational

background, or socio-economic differences, experiences,

or realities. "Jesus ransomed people for God from every 

tribe and language and people and nation."

Revelations 5:9

Let us pray that all who are in authority, world-wide will

bear the marks of God's love, presence, and power, and

not become susceptible to lies, chaos and evil

undertakings, but advocate for peace, love and justice

for all.

It is a crucial time for our nation... our 

world to collectively seek God's 

divine intervention.

When God is in the forefront, intended evil becomes 

eventual good.

God is mindful of each person He created, equally. As we 

search the Scriptures and come to understand our equality 

before God and the origins of creation... that, in and of 

itself, should be enough to...


According to Scripture...

We are all made in God’s 


 Everybody's story is important in this huge, rich, 

beautiful, and diverse tapestry. Every individual is like a

 thread and each thread has a vital contribution to make.

 Each thread has possibility. Each thread can make a 

positively good difference in this world.

Spirit makes us relevant to anyone, anywhere, anytime.

The Scriptures affirm the fundamental equality of all 

people before God. God's Word is very clear in telling 

us that no one is insignificant. Every single person is 

precious and valuable to God. 

Today, some will drown out the chants of "Black lives 

matter"with "White lives matter" or "All lives matter". 

The Black Lives Matter movement is not a hate 

movement, a statement of exclusion, an anti-white or 

anti-anyone proposition. This is a rallying cry from human 

beings protesting the harsh, oppressive, dehumanizing 

treatment and/or murders of African Americans by law 

enforcement. It is a cry from human beings who have been

 treated as if they were invisible. These human beings are

 seeking "Liberty and justice for all", just as it is written.

This movement was born out of heartbreak, anguish, 

affliction, murders, too much invisibility, inequities and 

too much injustice. This mass movement has come 

together, from around the world to say: 


Demonstrators are united in denouncing systemic racism 

and police brutality, i.e., being vigorously policed, treated 

inhumanely with unnecessary cruel beatings, tasering, 

being kicked, faces and bodies are mercilessly slammed to 

the ground, put in fatal choke holds, being unarmed and 


These are human beings (including children) who are 

plagued with longstanding, unacceptable human rights 

issues. The excessive use of violent force against 

African Americans is something that continues to happen 

over and over again. It is blatantly unrighteous and 

painfully appalling, to say the least.

This movement is to raise and broaden awareness of the 

violence and discrimination blacks face in the United 

States of America. African Americans are intentionally 

left deprived of basic human rights and dignity at the 

hands of the state. This fight is against injustice. It is 

denouncing systemic racism and police brutality that is 

excessively used against African Americans.

Let us be honest, many whites have unearned advantages 

over blacks, in this life, and when it is brought to the 

light... some tend to purposely deflect, dismiss, pretend to 

misunderstand and attempt to read into it... a whole 

different meaning. 

That is cruel and selfish.

Perhaps it is easy for those who have never felt the 

stinging darts of segregation, injustice, racial profiling

being kicked and beaten by those who are paid, with your

 tax dollars, to protect and serve, getting wrongfully

 incarcerated or murdered by police just because 

of the color of their earthly tent. 

It is quite heartless and shallow to deflect blame on 

those who are being discriminated against... that is foul.

To those who are quick to drown out the cries for justice 

from hurting souls, please help us to understand why?

Have you ever experienced any of their pain?

This movement is not out to do anyone any harm... they 

know what that kind of pain feels like. They are not 

saying white lives and/or all lives don't matter. They are 

saying black lives are tired of turning the other cheek and 

being subjected to oppression, hatred, discrimination, Jim 

Crowism, racial profiling, awful preconceived baseless

 notions, unwarranted and mean opinions and suspicions 

about God's creation. Please help us to understand why? 

Brutal force and murder should grieve any God fearing 

soul. To see the countless unarmed Black men being

 grossly murdered and/or excessively forced and slammed 

to the ground is horribly shameful and deplorable.

African Americans are tired of being treated unjustly...  

and rightfully so. They are tired of the system, their tax 

dollars support, creating broken families. They are tired of 

seeing Black men being disproportionately incarcerated


as if someone is getting paid a commission for each arrest. 

Black men are being disproportionately incarcerated for 

things White men would never be questioned about.

Where is the 


African Americans are fed up with America's biased, 

harsh, oppressive, dehumanizing and egregious judicial

 history towards them. There has been a rallying cry from 

African Americans who have been subjected to

institutionalized racism in virtually every aspect of 

society, especially in police departments and the legal 


African Americans are enraged because in 2020 America 

is still turning a blind eye to murders by law enforcement,

 unfair housing practices, to abominable racism, police

 brutality and many horrific issues and ungodly injustices.

In blatant and sometimes subtle ways, African Americans

 are faced with pathological, festering stereotypes that 

lead to discrimination, racism and reduced opportunities,

 every day of their lives.

The vicious police brutality and the harsh treatment 

towards African Americans looks a lot like, "Buck 

breaking", the "Master mentality", and "Slave patrol"... 

just warmed over differently, in 2020.


Why are these human beings still seeking liberty and 

justice for all?

Some have been on the sidelines maintaining a dignified 

silence. Some have come to the tipping point and realize 

it is not okay to silence what you know and see is wrong. 

In order for us to leave this world better for future 

generations... it is going to take getting totally fed up with 

the lingering racism, economic disparities, exploitations,

 housing disadvantages and the overall way African 

American's human rights are being violated.


The time is now!

It is time that we all look through a more righteous lens 

and stop dismissing the real issues minorities have to face 

when they interact with bad officers.

These horrible, racially skewed, 

injustices affects us all. We can 

no longer, as citizens of this universe,

continue in silence and accept the "Jim 

Crow" racism, the evil injustices, 

murders, and the disgusting barriers

 of white supremacy to exist in this


How and why, in 2020, is there still 

this deeply rooted spectacle of vile


This is so unproductive!

"Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make 

you commit atrocities." 

- Voltaire
Some people can only be comfortable and confident 

around others whom they can identify with. They are 

quick to embrace baseless and unfair biases that can be 

profoundly bitter for or against others because they have 

been taught to fear people who are different from them or 

been deemed as a threat, based on the color of their skin. 

Some people are quick to dislike others because another's 

strength reminds them of their weaknesses. 

Usually the things that others fear within themselves is 

what they don't like about others. As a result, people will 

project their unlovable and morally reprehensible ill,

negativity and/or hostility outward. The idea is, "I'm not 

unacceptable; you are."

Far too many have been groomed to see reality through a 

very narrow and shallow lens. This leaves one feeling

threatened by perceived outsiders. 

"To find out who controls you, first find out who you 

aren't allowed to criticize...."-

No baby is born with biases. It is not within them to 

embrace madness, misunderstandings, suspicions or fear

Fear blinds us. It is the path to the dark side where one 

only see monsters, divisiveness, vindictiveness, 

destructive, and uncivil behavior. It is at the root of

 prejudice and many other ills that can consume and/or

 destroy itself. 

Children listen and learn many awful lessons which can 

lead to a poisoning that can produce bitterness, suffering 

and a polluted temple which can destroy from within. It is 

much like giving your children a dose of poison and

hoping it will kill someone who God created in a different 


When the seeds of supremacy and one's evaluations of 

other cultures, according to preconceptions originating in 

the standards and customs of one's own culture, are planted

and fostered... those useless and misplaced emotions can 

eat at the soul, take over the mind and negatively affect 

every area one's of life.

Misplaced loyalty is when one is loyal to a person, an 

institution or an organization that they should not be loyal 

to. It is also when one's loyalty makes them biased

towards a person or institution for wrong reasons, which 

can be an injurious and dangerous thing. 


Because their minds are bound by their beliefs. Many are 

afraid that people of color will find out they are their 

equal and as a result, their clan will perish.

Generational sins are weaknesses or tendencies that are 

handed down to us through the generations from parents 

and/or members of our family. These sins can involve 

behavioral patterns and ways of thinking that can keep 

one trapped in the past, misguided and placed on a 

dangerous path which could lead to serious problems

 with inner conflicts and sinful implications that confuses 

and paralyzes life. 

Even though sin can be passed down through the 

generations, each person is responsible for his or her 

personal sins against God. Evilness is not a family value.

Individually, we will have to answer.

We can either inherit good or evil from those who came 

before us. Many behaviors are passed on from one 

generation to the next... this involves both good and bad 

things. These behaviors can last for generations and 

become a stronghold, stumbling block or can be harmful 

for the whole family.

There are many who may regard themselves as socially

 superior to others. Such notions are due to attitudes that

 stem from a strong loyalty driven by one's own social 

group, family and/or legacy which could be laced with 

disturbing mixes of hateful ideologies. 

As individuals and families, we have committed many 

generational sins over the years, i.e., lying, fear, judgment, 

resentment, greed, manipulation, hatred, revenge, racism 

and injustice, etc.

Sadly, when it comes to siding with one's groups, many 

do not consider following God's lead, any rules or 

care about right and wrong. Appallingly, they have bought 

into a belief system that white people have more value 

than others. 

Some can be so loyal to their groups, their sense of loyalty

 becomes above justice, morality and righteousness. They 

can easily be driven from the truth and will agree with a 


Warped decisions made by parents often impact their 

children and their children's children in negative ways. 

When children embrace the sins of their ancestors it can 

become a phenomenon with real and damaging 


Tribalism is a powerful influence on many people and can 

encourage the weak to think of people, created by God in 

a different hue from theirs, as being sub-human. Why? 

Because they learned from the influences they trusted.

There is something very wrong in human psychology that 

makes one manipulate words and images to trigger violent

and hateful reactions. This kind of loyalty can tilt, even 

those in high places, towards authoritarian political

dominion, constitutional crises, increasing white

nationalism and racist unrest, hot air and flame fanning.

This is why we all must be careful of what we sow into 

the universe. The far-reaching dangers of evil doers shall, 

in every respect, cause the evil doer to reap the bitter fruits

of their own ill-doings.

The New Testament teaching is, 

"Whatsoever a man sows

that shall he also reap." 

They that plough evil, and perversely 

sow wickedness against others in their 

hearts... will reap a harvest of woe.

This is a testimony of the ages warning evil-doers. This 

rule is also inevitable; and it is just. 

The attitude of white supremacy was used to justify 

unjust rule of people, subjugation, pillaging and 

plundering of land, resources and genocide. 

White supremacy was supported by misguided scientific 

studies. Many white people were raised with the 

impression of being superior to individuals of color. This 

idea was based on their privilege and upper hand over 

people of color

Some lived each day of their lives, from birth, believing

they were to be served by African Americans. They 

considered African Americans to be available as free 

and/or cheap labor for the betterment of entitled white 


Some were of the belief that African Americans were 

created to live a life in total service to white people. 

African Americans were considered to only be good for 

working the fields, taking care of white children, cleaning

their homes, their streets and their businesses. 

Many thought that African Americans were to serve 

white people so whites could experience an easier 

and more empowered life. 

This was the point of the colonial project.

It has been said that a knowledge of one's own ignorance 

is the beginning of wisdom and that recognizing our lack 

of wisdom is a prudent step towards understanding

Scripture qualifies this.

Why are there so many traces of overt 

racism built into federal policy? 

Why does mass incarceration remain a 

deeply racist enterprise? 

Throughout the human race is diversity in skin color and

 other physical features. 

Some think that when God confused the languages at 

the tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9), He also created 

ethnic diversity. 
It is possible that God 

made genetic changes to 

humanity to better equip us 

all to survive in different 

To perceive others as fully human means to be saddened 

by the death of every single person, regardless of their 

race, tribe, creed, color, class, religion, language, age, 

culture, disability, political beliefs, educational

backgrounds, or socioeconomic differences, experiences, 

or realities. 

"Jesus ransomed people for God from every tribe and 

language and people and nation."

Revelations 5:9

Jesus did not allow social status or cultural barriers to 

dictate His relationships with people. Jesus was criticized 

for His actions, but what prophet ever lived without 


A person's right to air grievances without fear of 

retribution or censorship is fundamental to democracy in 

the United States. Free expression of one's beliefs is

Unprecedented numbers of our younger people are 

marching for justice. These protestors are continuing the 

work of their ancestors and fighting for their collective 

freedom because they believe it is their duty. This mass 

movement of our younger people have stepped forward... 

taking center stage and they are challenging our current 

realities. They have taken to the streets demanding justice

To the signers of the Declaration of Independence — and 

the ratifiers of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights — 

the freedom of speech, along with other freedoms, is a 

natural right because it comes as a result of our humanity, 

not from the government.

Many of the peaceful protests ended in rioting, which hurt 

the credibility of the protests. We also know that many of 

the rioters were outsiders. 

Many of their actions contributed to a narrative that 

protests were essentially riots caused by Black Lives 

Matter participants and African Americans. 

While this was mostly untrue, the distraction ave Satan an 

opportunity to contribute his fair share of chaos. This gave 

the media an opportunity to sensationalize and broadcast 

to the masses a half baked story. The peaceful protests 

were overlooked by the media in favor of more 

“newsworthy” violent acts. 

Trump has stirred up much conflict. He added gasoline to 

the spark with a racially charged slur, referring to the 

protesters as ‘Thugs.’ He said they were there to 

cause trouble. He issued warnings for authorities to crack

 down on protestors. He urged restraint. He stoked 

more confrontations by over-zealously, threatening violent

intervention. He warned protestors outside the White

House they could be greeted with vicious dogs and

ominous weapons if they breached the fence. This was 

his subtle reminder, to most African Americans, of 

segregationists who, historically, let vicious dogs out on 

women, children and men.  He turned to look at protestors 

booing him during a campaign rally, in Jacksonville. He 

said, 'They have no voice'.

Trump has made the claim, “When the looting starts, the 

shooting starts.”

Authoritarian inclinations and inflammatory statements 

can and has fanned the flames and escalated, the already 

aggressive police, into retaliatory arrests and charges 

against peaceful protestors. 

Some find it easier to sow seeds of fear and purposely 

attempt to intimidate or agitate protestors in such a way 

that it could validate a shut down of the movement. 

Painting a picture of the movement as being violent, when 

it was not, is underhanded and utterly ruthless. 

The unfounded remarks incited explosive situations that 

were totally uncalled for. These inclinations are what 

opens the doors for cruelty and genocide.

Let us not veer off point or get sidetracked by the small 

percentage of those who decided to take advantage of the 

moment. Many of those who may have taken advantage of 

the moment are believed to be recruits filled with the 

grand illusion of freedom to carry out the evil plans of 

those who would rather dilute the message of the

of possible recruits... to

These are the very

There is justifiable rage on many streets around the world!

The world's reaction to the U.S. protests is creating

solidarity. Awakened people worldwide are focusing their 

attention on calls for justice and change as never before.

Awakened, socially conscious, forward thinking people of 

all ethnicities, from all over the world, are focusing their 

attention on calls for justice and change as never before. 

People from all walks of life are standing in solidarity

 with the Black Lives Matter movement seeking "Liberty

 and Justice for All". 

They are fully aware that the existing state of affairs, 

which has been a hostile environment for African 

Americans and other people of color, is unequal across 

areas like generations of police brutality, systemic racism, 

marginalization of black communities and decades of 

economic inequalities.  

These social and/or political issues will have to do more 

than engage in surface level efforts. African Americans 

are, disingenuously, given the illusions of inclusion; yet,

the reality, the challenging issues of racial disparities,

which is endemic to the way things have been and are, 

in America, are not being addressed.

This protest started in the middle of the global COVID-19

pandemic. It has been fueled by an economic crisis,

thousands of COVID-19 deaths and senseless murders...

which are all hitting black Americans disproportionately.

This is a righteous fight against the nightmare of deeply 

ingrained racism, oppression, inequality and injustice!

Our younger generation of freedom fighters, researchers 

and critical thinkers are well aware of the huge, but 

departmentalized and hierarchical system which operates 

to deceive, control, oppress and destroy humanity. 
Some believe when African Americans ban together it is 

necessary to accuse them of crimes and present an 

amplified, defamatory narrative to the world by way of the 

broadcast media. Some feel that when African 

Americans rise up... it is necessary to crush them, 

exterminate them and mentally, physically or spiritually 

kill them before they grow.  

Far too many are still so caught up with generational evil 

entitlement, the idea of equality scares them. Some whites

 feel that if people of color truly realized they are equal... 

whites will be vanquished with no place to run.

African Americans have truly been blessed to have the 

patience of Job, but in 2020 they are sick and tired of 

being sick and tired of police brutality and systemic 


We are all exhausted and annoyed that unarmed black men,

 in particular, are being gunned down by gutless, 

frightened officers who find it easier or have been 

taught and trained to abuse, criminalize or kill people of 


With a legacy of slavery and racism, and a "Shoot to 

kill" mentality, far too many officers are unable to protect

 and serve. They have many agendas and biases and are

 not qualified to righteously perform the job. Some 

are behaving as if these killings are...

"For the sport of it."

The institution of slavery, the abuse, control, 

criminalization and lynchings of minorities were 

formidable historic features of American society shaping 

early policing. Slave patrols and Night Watches became 

modern police departments. They were designed to 

control the behaviors of minorities.

According to Victor E. Kappeler, Ph.D, Associate Dean 

and Foundation Professor, School of Justice Studies at 

Eastern Kentucky University, the legacy of slavery and 

racism did not end after the Civil War. In fact it can be 

argued that extreme violence against people of color 

became even worse with the rise of vigilante groups who 

resisted Reconstruction. 

Because vigilantes, by definition, have no external 

restraints, lynch mobs had a justified reputation for 

hanging minorities first and asking questions later. 

Because of its tradition of slavery, which rested on the 

racist rationalization that Blacks were sub-human, 

America had a long and shameful history of mistreating

 people of color, long after the end of the Civil War. 

Perhaps the most infamous American vigilante group, 

the Ku Klux Klan started in the 1860s, was notorious
for assaulting and lynching Black men for transgressions

 that would not be considered crimes at all, had a White 

man committed them. 

Lynching occurred across the entire country not just in the 

South. Finally, in 1871 Congress passed the Ku Klux Klan 

Act, which prohibited state actors from violating the Civil 

Rights of all citizens in part because of law enforcements’ 

involvement with the infamous group. This legislation, 

however, did not stem the tide of racial or ethnic abuse 

that persisted well into the 1960s. 
In no small part because of the tradition of slavery, Blacks 

have long been targets of abuse. The use of patrols to 

capture runaway slaves was one of the precursors of 

formal police forces, especially in the South. This 

disastrous legacy persisted as an element of the police role 

even after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In 

some cases, police harassment simply meant people of 

African descent were more likely to be stopped and 

questioned by the police, while at the other extreme, they 

have suffered beatings, and even murder, at the hands of 

White police. Questions still arise today about the 

disproportionately high numbers of people of African 

descent killed, beaten, and arrested by police in major 

urban cities of America.
For decades, African Americans have been protesting and 

demanding human rights in the United States which 

pledges to be under God, indivisible with liberty and 

justice for all!

The civil rights movement was a 

struggle for social justice that took 

place mainly during the 1950s and 

1960s for blacks to gain equal rights 

under the law in the United States.

Over six decades later, blacks are still 

experiencing blatant injustices in their 

daily lives!

Skin color should not constitute a 

false arrest and/or fatality.

A righteous society can not turn a blind eye or deaf ear to 

the plight and abuses of others. To remain silent or passive 

is to ignore the fact that when people get away with minor 

crimes, blind eyes can make it more likely that they will 

go on to commit more serious crimes... which could affect 

the blind-eyed individuals, personally. Let us stop feeding 

the monsters of racism and injustice which were put in 

place to cover historical lies. 

This is a partial; yet, horrifically grim 

roster of 

African Americans killed 

by police.

Of all of the life 

experiences, death and

 bereavement are

 considered to be the most

 unsettling. Whenever or 

however death occurs, 

every loss brings its share 

of pain, disruption, changes, 

and challenges.

There are no words for these unimaginable losses. Our 

hearts have joined the thousands in mourning, your loss. 

Please accept our heartfelt condolences.
“God is close to the brokenhearted and saves those 

who are crushed in spirit.”

—Psalms 34:18

These deaths, brutal injuries and 

arrests are a complete affront to 

simple decency.

Black lives are at risk. 

Blacks are twice as likely to be hurt, arrested or killed by 

an officer. It is said that there are more black Americans in 

the United States justice system than there were slaves in 


The most infuriating thing about injustice is the absence 

of the acknowledgment of wrong.

Black Lives Matter, too". The statement is an unspoken, 

but implied "Too,"which suggests that the statement is one 

of inclusion rather than exclusion. It is not anti-American, 

but anti-racist. It is not trying to elevate one life over


Some have tried to undermine and sabotage the efforts

 for social justice by suggesting that protesters were 

looting and causing civil unrest. It is suspected that 

outsider agitators are triggering violence at what would 

otherwise be peaceful demonstrations. They have also 

infiltrated demonstrations to distract from the focus on 

police misconduct, brutality and the tragedies of 

murdering black people for the sport of it. 

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a bold transformative

vision that would end racism in America. His vision came 

from deep convictions that everyone, regardless of race 

creed or color would realize freedom ringing in and 

through their hearts, minds, nation and world. 

Nearly 100 NBA employees across departments staged a 

one-day walkout Friday in solidarity with NBA and 

WNBA players to protest social injustice, and they were 

contacting Wisconsin law enforcement and elected 

officials in an effort to effect change, a person familiar 

with the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

Police brutality, in the United States of 

America, is and has been an ongoing

  problem for African Americans.
