Why Hasn’t Race Relations Gotten Better?
It has been 50 years since the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. It has been just under 50 years since the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that prohibits racial discrimination in voting. Shortly after the Voting Rights Act we had the Civil Rights Act of 1968 that provided for equal housing opportunities regardless of race, creed, or national origin and made it a federal crime to “by force or by threat of force, injure, intimidate, or interfere with anyone by reason of their race, color, religion, or national origin.” In 2008 we elected the first black president in the history of the United States. So why are we still having race problems?
The truth is unsettling, but the truth is it has to do with greed and control just as much, if not more than race; the other problem is you have more racist from the black community who get passes because they are black that a white person would never get, isn’t this discrimination? When you have one group allowed to openly call other races by racist terms, are they not racist? Whenever you have words that are fine for one group to say but not another group, this is discrimination. If the word is so bad one group can’t say it, no group should say it. You then have people who are suppose to be leaders and reverends of God in these communities using racist term and stoking racist flames which I’m sure God wouldn’t give a pass on but our media does and in many cases even helps them for ratings. When you have these types of Community, Congressional, and Spiritual leaders who instead of trying to help race relations, fan the hatred instead, you have to ask why? It is all about greed and power. The saddest part about this is we have Congressman doing this who claims to be against racism but I believe they mean they are against racism against their race only, isn’t this racism.
Many of these Community, Congressional, and Spiritual leaders will lose any control they have over their people, constituents, and congregations if they ever found out what is known as true freedom. They have been telling their people, constituents, and congregations what to think, who to vote for, what is best for them, and those are the ones lying that their people, constituents, and congregations have never went out to verify what is the truth. They have been giving all the entitlements out to prevent prosperity in this group because entitlements keep them enslaved and unable to achieve the American Dream. If you go to any impoverished third world country you will see a mass amount of fatherless children, you will see a lack of education from indoctrination, you will see respect for other’s rights not taught, you will see it is us against them being taught, you will see zealots fanning the flames of discontent, you will see violence to settle disputes, you will see non-trusting of the police, and you will see the people being told what to think and believe; this is exactly what many of our Community, Congressional, and Spiritual leaders are doing in these communities so they will not lose their power. If there were no more racial issues, who would lose their power, influence, standing, and most of all their money; this is the same Community, Congressional, and Spiritual leaders who keep stoking the hatred and lying to their people, constituents, and congregations.
The biggest problem will happen when you really do have a racial problem happen and most people will turn a blind eye toward it because wolf has been cried too many times. I was in the military forever and race for the most part had no bearing on anything, we cared more about “do you have my back” then what is your race. This is how communities were acting in most area I visited in the 1980s but now it has changed and the only people you need to blame is the Community, Congressional, and Spiritual leaders. When you have your law makers ignoring evidence and provoking negative responses instead of supporting the truth, you have a problem. When you have religious leaders threaten to “Tear this God D@mn Country apart” over the Ferguson shooting, there is something wrong. If you really want to see who is causing the deaths in your community all you have to do is look to the Community, Congressional, and Spiritual leaders who preach violence, lack of respect toward other, lack of respect toward authority figures, and they are the same ones enslaving you with entitlements.
