Many of you have probably seen the movie Remember the Titans, a critically-acclaimed film that tackled the issue of race in the Civil Rights era. It did this simply, upon the thesis of Dr. Martin Luther King: that all men are created equal and ought to be treated as such.
The movie struck a chord with Americans who lived through the era – many of them remember how hard it really was to get the south’s Democratic governors to give up their untenable and unbiblical position of racial separation and black inferiority. Remember the photo of then-Alabama Governor George C. Wallace standing in front of the auditorium at the University of Alabama to protest the inclusion of black students? I do!
Governor Wallace was a Democrat. His worldview, and the worldview held by many of the Southern Democrats then is the same as the one held by most Democrats in power today: that black people are intellectually inferior as compared to other races, and that they must receive extra, special treatments and accommodations as compared to others. This stands contrary to the teaching of Dr. King, that all men are to be treated equal, without regard for their skin color.
For example, today’s Democrats believe, like plantations owners did 200 years ago, that blacks don’t have the skills or maturity to successfully study and take the SAT college admission tests (as evidenced by mandated racial quotas at universities), or complete basic civic tasks (such as providing a picture ID for voting), or that they can’t be held responsible for the choices they make (which justifies the government’s provision of extra accommodations, special help, and government programs). This is the definition of racism.
I haven’t even mentioned that the Democrats have made blacks the worthiest targets of the abortion industry, placing 79 percent of abortion clinics within walking distance of poor, black neighborhoods. Margaret Sanger, the eugenicist founder of Planned Parenthood, believed the world shouldn’t have more black babies – the Democrats seem more than happy to continue promoting that view through the promotion of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics.
While this sounds like a harsh indictment against Democratic leaders, consider that today Democrats all across the country have introduced their old new plan to promote combat racism: Critical Race Theory (CRT).
The concept of CRT hinges on three false arguments, as outlined by Deroy Murdock: 1.) it defines America as inherently and irredeemably bigoted, 2.) it denounces all whites as racial oppressors, and 3.) it diminishes all blacks as permanent racially oppressed individuals who “are paralyzed victims, as helpless as butterflies…enfeebled.”
Naturally, the only solution taught by CRT, is “to swaddle them in the warm, loving arms of the left.” 200 years ago, blacks were held captive by white-Democrat-run southern plantations; today they’re held captive by dysfunctional, white-Democrat-run government programs. Deroy gets the real reasons why this is happening today. “Ultimately, like every Democrat effort, this is about getting elected, retaining power, and controlling Americans as tightly as possible.”
Welcome to the slavery of today, where the new goal is to create a permanent caste system where blacks must be given “special treatment” and be cared for and protected by Democrats. It is not a coincidence that this was the justification slave owners gave when advocating that slavery was good for the black slaves and that blacks were “not capable of taking care of themselves.”
If Democrats truly wanted to end the suffering and the supposed “persecution” of blacks and black families, they would support giving black parents school vouchers so their children can leave the corrupt, dysfunctional public schools. They would stop placing abortion clinics in poor neighborhoods that disproportionately kill black babies. They would stop placing them in dysfunctional government programs that promote enablement, victimhood, and every vice imaginable – rather than faith and virtue.
The ugly fact is that the vast majority of violence and murder against blacks is caused by other blacks in Democrat-run cities – not by the police or white racists. The radicals who control Hollywood, the entertainment industry, and other cultural systems must stop targeting black Americans with evil messages (see Lil Nas X) – otherwise nothing will change.
We must start by forcing our leaders to treat our black brothers and sisters as responsible human beings capable of making moral, informed choices, who can take responsibility for their actions. That is true antiracism.
Sadly, black suffering will continue to get worse; last session, nine “Critical Race Theory,” state-sanctioned racism bills passed the legislature, further corrupting Washington State.
We must reject the new slavery and reassert Rev. King’s truth: that all men are created equal by God, endowed by their creator with a purpose and a plan, and that they are loved. If blacks are to ever prosper in America, we must call out the racists running America and turn back to Jesus Christ and His teachings.
