I hate crime of any kind. I hate guns. I hate the lack of respect due to the color of one's skin. I saw a story of a young man, killed dead. He was in his own community, minding his own business, and he was gunned down. The media, when informed, ran the story. It was about a young man named Trayvon Martin. The black communities were outraged. How dare this individual shoot this kid and get away with murder? Yes, I was hurt as well. Hurt that this young man had died. But, I hurt every time I hear of blacks being killed by gunfire. I wonder why the communities don't cry out bloody murder or revenge when this takes place daily in their own communities? The gangs, thugs, and drug dealers run rampant. They curse. They refer to the men as ni**as and women as bit**es. They even speak to their children this way. How can you expect the nation to respect you when you don't respect one another. I really wonder if the number of slaves killed during slavery, is lower than the number of blacks losing their life to the modern day crime. People are being raped, robbed, tortured, bullied, and killed. No one is saying anything. No one is taking a stand. People are more consumed with their attire, hair style, jewelry, and cars than their neighbors and communities. I pray that blacks seek God and join in unity. Choose your battles wisely. Yes, demand justice for Trayvon, but also demand justice for all who die due to unnecessary violence. Psalms 50: 20-22 You sit and speak against your brother: you slander your own mother's son. These things you have done, and I kept silence: you thought that I was altogether such an one as yourself: but I will reprove you, and set them in order before your eyes. Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
Repent. Quit putting faith in politicians, police, and in people. Put faith in God. Once you grow in the Lord and be obedient, He will lead you. He will protect your front and your rear. Trust in Him, talk to Him, He answers questions. He is God and He loves us all. All races, cultures, ethnicity's..............He love us equally. Why can we not do the same?
