“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”—Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I voted for Barack because he was black. … [Obama’s] message didn’t mean **** to me.”—Samuel L. Jackson.
“Racism is not dead, but it is on life support—kept alive by politicians, race hustlers and people who get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as ‘racists.’”—Thomas Sowell.
“I am not an African-American. I am an American.”—Bishop E.W. Jackson, Sr.
The above quotes from prominent black men showcase both the problems and solutions with race relations in our country. The second one is the odd one out, and most disturbing.
Samuel Jackson’s excuse for spitting on MLK’s stated dream was “Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people—because they look like them.” But imagine a conservative actor like Gary Sinise, lead star and producer of CSI-NY and whose Foundation supports disabled veterans, telling people, “I voted for John McCain because he was white, because everyone votes for those who look like him.” Imagine the calls from the NAACP to boycott his movies and TV shows! But Samuel Jackson got a free pass for his racism.
He is also talking total nonsense. As the fine libertarian Republican Larry Elder (himself black) points out, Obama won 43% of the white vote, 2% more than John Kerry the previous election. Before that, Obama was Junior Senator of Illinois, where only 13% of the population is black. Conversely, only about 5% of blacks voted for McCain.
Our Marxist-in-Chief recently endorsed the oxymoronic “gay marriage”. Supposedly, this has lost him support from black church leaders. Blacks in general are conservative on issues like marriage, greatly helping to defeat the GayStapo even in the liberal state of CA.
But why on earth were they supporting him in the first place? His policies show that he is the most anti-Christian President in American history, including support for infanticide and abortion extremism, and his open war against the church and the consciences of Christians.
Sad to say, it seems that many black church leaders have broken from MLK’s stated ideal to follow Samuel Jackson in looking at Obama’s skin color. Black author Pamela Wilson has even written a book called Finding Soul Brothers, subtitled, Dismantling Black Christian Racialism (2007).
Pamela Wilson cites the above diagram from the Black Genocide site showing that the biggest cause of deaths of black people is induced abortion. These numbers dwarf even the two million deaths during the notorious Middle Passage, and even approach the 25 million blacks killed during transit in the Islamic slave trade within Africa. Since she wrote, the site has been updated to say:
“Minority women constitute only about 13% of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, but they underwent approximately 36% of the abortions.
“According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion
“On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States.
“This incidence of abortion has resulted in a tremendous loss of life. It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. Michael Novak had calculated ‘Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America’s Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member.’”
It’s not just Obama, but the Democrats in general—Obama just epitomizes the Democratic wing of the Democratic party. But for some reason, over 90% of blacks have supported the Democratic Party, apparently with the blessings of their pastors. This is usually non-racial, which in some ways makes it more bizarre. The racial element certainly came into play when most blacks voted for Obama over Hillary Clinton, although they are ideologically almost identical.
Fortunately, some black pastors are standing up to take responsibility. The above was a recent headline, reporting on some long-overdue strident criticism of the Democrats, the party of slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow laws. It referred to Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr., a Marine Corps veteran, Harvard Law graduate, former attorney and Law Professor, author of the forthcoming America the Beautiful – Reflections of a Patriot Descended from Slaves, and husband of one wife for 40 years. He was most forthright:
“Clearly, the Democratic Party is the anti-Christian Party in this nation. They reject the Bible, what Bible-believing Christians embrace and they encourage the growth of what we can a ‘non-traditional’ family. That is morally wrong and a disgrace to our nation and our Lord.”
Bishop Jackson also pointed to the Dems’ “cult-like devotion” to abortion, and the unholy alliance between the Dems and the abortion and sex-trafficking business Planned Parenthood. This was founded by the racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger to eliminate what she called “human weeds”, including black people. The House voted to defund this rotten organization, but the Dems were determined to protect their allies, and the appeasing RINOs caved. Yet as shown above, abortion, the major “business” of Planned Parenthood, has killed far more blacks than anything else.
Also, while the media often resort to scaremongering about the “religious right” supposedly forcing religion on people, they ignore the secularists’ influence on the Dems. A few years back, Rod Dreher wrote an article Are the Democrats Anti-Religion?: How the media’s reporting on the Religious Right keeps it from seeing the story of the Secular Left. But still the media ignore it. Bishop Jackson noted how the Democrat Party loves the anti-Christian organizations: the ACLU and the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
And the last straw for E.W. Jackson was that Democrats unanimously voted this month to endorse same-sex marriage in their party’s platform. When this intention became known, the Bishop said:
“They will be spitting in the face of every Bible believing Christian in America. They will be saying, ‘we don’t care what you think, what you believe, or what the Bible or the God of the Bible says. We know better than God.’”
“The Democrat Party has turned its back on Christians. It is time to turn our backs on the Democrat Party.”
Earlier this year, he had stood as a Republican primary candidate. His campaigning was also exemplary, being a true uniter, declaring, “I am not an African-American. I am an American.” Then he sharply criticised Obama’s horrible economic policies, and declared:
“As an American that happens to be black, criticism of Barak Obama is not about the color of his skin. It is about his policies. I don’t care if a president is black or white. I just want our president to be red, white and blue.”
He lost to George Allen in the primaries, and quite properly pledged his support to the GOP primary winner George Allen to defeat the Democrats.
But the message of this bishop and American patriot to the black churches should resonate with all Patriots sick of the racial polarization, economic chaos, and immorality fomented by the Racist-In-Chief.
