The word Racism

Updated on July 14, 2016

Racism has been around for a long time. Personally I dislike that word. In my opinion the word 'Racism' is misused and in many cases over-used.

Let me explain:
When person "A" beats up or kills person "B" because he comes from another country or he looks different, that does not mean that person "A" is a racist. Both people are humans, therefore they are of the same race.
Now we also know that when a person who looks different then the person they harmed, it is not always because the other person looked different. Many times people harm people for other reasons, such as drugs, theft, gang initiations, dares etc.

So let me go on to what I believe in greater depth. This 'racism' that people speak of is rooted in hate and/or fear. They hate people who look different or they fear them, or both. Hatred and fear are based on lies. They believe lies they are told by others...friends, family, colleagues etc and hatred and fear come from the father of lies and hate--satan.

Why do people let satan control their minds and fall into his web of lies and hatred? Some times it comes from deep rooted seeds of the past. Some times they don't know the truth--Jesus.
If people were to come to Christ and let Him minister to them and fill them with His love, light and truth, then the darkness, the lies will be flushed out and they will become a new creation.

The government is not living for God, it is manipulated by satan and thus the reason for so much tension, hatred, evil that is running rampant in our country. Governments thrive on dissension, that is the reason they then use to implement more control of government over people. That way they can keep us under their thumb of oppression and control.

Remember in the United States, who or what allowed slavery, refused to give rights to non-whites, refused to acknowledge non-whites to be humans and treated as such? It was the government. The government fuelled what people call racism. It is no different today, except that there are groups who are fuelling it along with the government.

If we all want to be treated with respect, as equals and live harmoniously together then we must not allow government, racist groups and most of all satan to manipulate us into hating one another. We are all the same...we are all human beings created equal by God in His image.

God bless you all and please share this if you like. I appreciate it.


Racism springs from the lie that certain human beings are less than fully human. It's a self-centered falsehood that corrupts our minds into believing we are right to treat others as we would not want to be treated.

      1. White Americans are also the only group to fight a war to end slavery, with 600,000 dying in the civil war to do so. All the collective blame on whites ignores this sacrifice of blood.

      2. The modern political definition of racism says privilege plus power. This lets blacks assault whites and say it isn't racism because they say whites have the power. Ditto the hash tag kill all white males being considered acceptable, but pointing out how affirmative action leads to problems for the groups it is supposed to help or the high murder rate of blacks by blacks relative to the small number killed by cops gets you called racist and hate mobbed.

      3. We know whites don't have power as they did during the Jim Crow era of the 1950s, because they are officially discriminated against in school admissions and federal hiring. No one in power would be systematically discriminated against.

      4. Black activists today are mimicking the Jim Crow laws by demanding segregation of whites from blacks for their comfort, that black kids only have black teachers, demands for black cops for black neighborhoods. When your definition of diversity and equality is segregation, the Black Lives Movement seems to want to go back to the 1950s model - but with themselves on top. That's not equality - it is inversion of the social pyramid we had three generations ago, discriminating against the grandchildren and great grandchildren of the perpetrators - in short, punishing the innocent for the actions of the guilty several generations ago.
