I Will Not Bow Down To The "God Of Racial Indignation"
My heart is heavy this hour because of the anger which I have invoked with my those closest to me because of my politics. I found a note in my Bible from Sept 2005(apparently I was in this battle at that time as well) in Gen. 12:1-3 God called Abraham out of his country, his people and his father's household because they were worshipping many gods. Well, I am certainly no Abraham, but my people are worshipping many gods as well -- one of them being the "god of racial indignation". If you are choosing a candidate just because of the color of his skin (I'm not speaking to those who feel he is the best candidate -- that's different--I supposed ignorance is bliss) because this is the first time in history you have had an opportunity to do so then you are succumbing to the sense of racial indignation you feel for past injustices. You have made it a god because you have allowed it to consume you and you will not move through the pain of the past to your future free from those mental shackles. Hmm, do you really want change or do you derive pleasure from being angry, bitter, and paranoid. I assure you white people don't give a flying fig about your inner turmoil, you appear whiny and weak. It's like the kid on the playground who cries because the other kids don't like them (yeah, I know racism exists and....). Grow up, I'm not saying forget the past but put your big girl panties on and shift your paradigm towards progression. The dems only play on your pain when they want your votes at election time. You have a right to "never forget" and continue to wallow in your ancestral pain -- but, I refuse to bow down to that god and refuse to let racial indignation commandeer my innermost parts.
