The greatest romance is with the Infinite. You have no idea how beautiful life can be. When you suddenly find God everywhere, when He comes and talks to you and guides you, the romance of divine love has begun.
Republicans don’t even acknowledge that racism exists. There were a couple of new stats in the paper last week. One showed how blacks were treated way worse than whites by mortgage lenders. The other was about Haley Barbour, the governor of Mississippi who just pardoned like 200 prisoners as he was leaving office. Two thirds of the prisoners he pardoned were white, even though the prison population in Mississippi is two thirds black. And another study found that the odds would be ONE TRILLION TO ONE that that would be coincidental.
And what is the Republican solution to these outrageous inequalities? There isn’t one. And that’s the point. Denying racism is the new racism. To not acknowledge those statistics, to think of that as a ‘black problem’ and not an American problem. To believe, as a majority of FOX (News) viewers do, that reverse-racism is a bigger problem than racism, that’s racist.
You ever get tired of the same HBCUs getting the same kind of national attention? Howard, Morehouse, Spelman, Tuskegee…blah, blah, blah. It gets a little monotonous to hear the same handful of HBCUs getting the same coverage and love your school deserves.
“Have you forgotten that once we were brought here, we were robbed of our name, robbed of our language. We lost our religion, our culture, our god…and many of us, by the way we act, we even lost our minds.”—Khalid Muhammad
