Friends, there is a reason why I’m director of Civil Rights for the Unborn here in the 21st century. As we've seen from the most recent racially motivated massacre in Charlottesville, Va., racism is still alive and well.

Think about it — racism is sin; hatred is sin. Yet for whatever reason, the pot of domestic terrorism continues to be stirred under the guise of promoting "racial supremacy."

The big lie is that we are separate races, when in fact the spiritual, scientific, and biological fact is that we are one blood; one human race [see Acts 17:26] Racism and hatred are deadly. This is why I so often quote my uncle the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters], or perish together as fools. I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."

We should be grateful that the president of the United States is calling for a cease fire on the violence. My King Family Legacy foundations have taught me that nonviolent conflict reconciliation is the key to ending these "race wars." First Corinthians 13 tells us thart love never fails.

Please see, Trump condemns 'white supremacists,' other extremists behind deadly Virginia rallies.

Also, please note, in an article from Sophia Angeli Nelson, as one of God's microphones, I’m often required to say what people don’t want to hear. Abortion is racism, in that abortion takes away the civil rights and lives of our weakest and most vulnerable members of the human race, unborn babies.

Here’s an encapsulation of The King Family Legacy's approach to nonviolent conflict resolution which is introduced here briefly:

Six Steps and Principles for Nonviolent Social Change: A sequential journey to victory:

Principle 1: Nonviolence is not passive, but requires courage.

Principle 2: Nonviolence seeks reconciliation, not defeat of an adversary.

Principle 3: Nonviolent action is directed at eliminating evil, not destroying an evildoer.

Principle 4: A willingness to accept suffering for the cause, if necessary, but never to inflict it.

Principle 5: A rejection of hatred, animosity or violence of the spirit, as well as refusal to commit physical violence.

Principle 6: Faith that justice will prevail.

Six Steps of nonviolent conflict resolution:

1. Prayerfully gather facts.

2. Prayerfully educate adversaries and the public about the facts of the dispute.

3. Prayerfully commit yourself to live and manifest a nonviolent attitude and actions.

4. Prayerfully mediate and negotiate with adversaries in a spirit of goodwill to correct injustice.

5. Prayerfully apply nonviolent direct action, such as prayer vigils, marches, boycotts, mass demonstrations, picketing, sit-ins etc., to help persuade or compel adversary to work toward dispute-resolution.

6. Prayerfully anticipate reconciliation among adversaries in a win-win outcome in establishing a sense of community which should now be achievable.

Considering the times, I am grateful to be a part of a biological family as well as a spiritual family who embrace these truths. Won't you join us? Pray for America!
