An open letter to Archbishop Wilton Gregory of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington.
As Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, I am writing to you on behalf of the many Americans who are concerned about your characterization of President Trump’s recent comments on Baltimore as racist.
Seemingly, all too many people don’t understand what racism is and who is racist and who is not. Actually, regarding racism, the problem is not skin color. Science and religion both affirm that as human beings, we are all one blood, one human race.
"[Creator] God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth" – Acts 17:26
The words "racism" and "racist" are terms recklessly bandied about in the race card game; all of which is a deceptive, socially engineered decoy, creating oppressors and victims. This deception stirs the emotions while denying the much needed transformational civility, equality, justice, and freedom for all.
Sir, with all due respect, by scientific and spiritual definition, a racist is someone who denies scientific and spiritual evidence; that humans are one race.
As one who has encountered and resisted racism all of my life, I know a racist when I see a racist. I can assure you President Trump is not a racist.
Again, a racist is a person who doesn’t get Acts 17:26: Of one blood God made all people. I know President Trump understands that and prayerfully you do as well.
As my friend the renowned Secretary Ben Carson has explained, there are some areas in Baltimore marred by squalor and the people of the city are suffering because of it. It was not racist when he said that in driving through the city, he saw able-bodied young men sitting idle on porches. It was not racist to suggest these men should be put to work cleaning up the city, to everyone’s benefit.
President Trump makes a fair case when he says: “We all bleed the same.” We should care about all people all over the world. That includes red blooded Americans, everywhere. We all need to acknowledge that Baltimore and other inner city areas across our country have problems. It is not racist to acknowledge these problems and President Trump is not racist for pointing them out.
