I’m mad:

So I’ve been wondering if I should speak out about something that I keep reading and hearing. And I ran across an article that set me on fire, I was so mad. So I’m like let me say my peace. This is my opinion and just that.
I have heard and read a lot of stories regarding racism. And as a black woman married to a black man and have two black sons and a black daughter I’m exhausted. It’s one thing to say you feel threatened by black people but to go as far as to say we need to be slaves again so we can know our places. WTF does that mean??? God created everyone and we are to love everyone, even our enemies, and what I’m trying to understand about what I have read and heard is that people are scared of a race and skin color? WHOA so killing innocent black people is okay? You’re going to heaven right?
So the article I read was about a lady who while growing up had maids, lawn keepers, and things like this. All of them she wrote were black. She feels like slavery should come back and that if we as black people were put in our place there wouldn’t be this issue. What issue is it I’m wondering? First of all, we didn’t ask to come to America, second of all were is the love for one another. This article pissed me off and the dumb ass comments that followed.
I’m getting so sick and tired of people thinking that at a race is so horrible. I’m getting sick and tired of worrying if my husband and sons will be okay when they leave the house. I’m getting so sick and tired of people saying we need to get over it. I’m getting so sick and tired of people stating that this is what we deserve.
I’m trying to understand how skin color can be so bad? Every race commits crimes. But it’s okay to justify killing the black race. It’s okay if I’m walking and you feel uneasy that you can shot me. When will it stop? I’m tired and I’m tired of no one truly caring. But God cares this I do know. Because even though people who commit crimes may not get the punishment that they deserve, they will have to answer to God one day.
I truly want people to understand that love trumps hate, good trumps evil. We are all the same, if you peel our skin off we are all the same. We are different for a reason. God made us different so we can love and appreciate one another. When will the hate and violence stop? I’m sorry if some on you don’t understand, I’m sorry if you feel like I shouldn’t have written this post. But you have to understand this is my life. I wake up black and I’m going to die black. No one is perfect and no one should have to worry if there loved ones are going to see another day because of there skin color.

  1. This post and racism in general literally break my heart. It is just sickening and I don’t understand it. We are all one. Like you said everyone in this world is different in so many ways, what about looking at someone’s heart. That’s what people should be doing instead. In my eyes every human is equal ❤

  2. I’m almost 60 and I thought we, as a society, had come farther than this. Apparently not. We are all created in the image of God. You have every right to feel the way you do. Through faith we will overcome racism. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I understand your anger. To paraphrase James Baldwin “To be Black in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time” I don’t underestimate the mentality openly shared in the article you read. In fact I truly believe many people believe this and if they could chattel slavery would flat out exist again with no pretense. We want to hold the belief that all human beings are kind, loving and compassionate to others but that’s looking at the world with rose colored glasses. Maya Angelou said “If someone shows you who they are believe them the first time.”
