Stop the Racial Tension in Politics

By Monday, 14 March 2016 09:31 AM Current | Bio | Archive

I have just been called an idiot for viewing and possibly agreeing with this video. Told I am naive because Trump is a racist. I am not endorsing any candidates. Just seeking to enlighten people.

There is a lot of stirring up fear these days. Evoking George Wallace and the Ku Klux Klan to make people fearful without noting that Gov. Wallace and many KKK members repented and turned to Christ. Did they all? No. Yet many did. Also, my Uncle MLK was called a hate-monger and rabble-rouser. Even the most perfect lamb that ever lived and died for us and rose again the Lord Jesus Christ was called a rabble-rouser by his opposition. When the pot is stirred, tempers boil.

Here are some important observations. It takes between 12 percent to 15 percent for any candidate to win the presidency. President G.W. Bush understood this. He had many black conservative advisers, as did President Reagan.

President G.W. Bush's, and to some extent President Reagan's, presidential appointments reflected such understanding. Most Democratic candidates understand this and spend some time, money and effort on the black vote, although they tend to take the black vote for granted, as their entitlement. On the other hand, Republicans tend to attempt to suppress the black vote and frown at candidates who seek to bring blacks into the party.

See this op-ed by Clarence McKee. I pray that people are paying attention. Here's another by him that is insightful. And another.

And finally, three scriptures:
  • For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” ‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭KJV‬‬
  • There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” ‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:18‬ ‭KJV
  • “For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”‭‭James‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭KJV‬‬
