I want to pay tribute to wonderful people I have known, the wonderful country in which I live, the communities in which I have lived, the churches who have claimed me as their own, the God who sends shivers down my back when I really give him a portion of my time—well, maybe not shivers but tears flow easily in some of those most priceless times.

RACIAL ISSUES AND ME – DIFFERENCE IN BLACK AND WHITE

If truth be known, we have all been unfairly judged. It seems to me that the people who have had it the worst, and then come to the USA, see a vast difference in treatment.
There was a 5 year old boy killed at point blank range by a neighbor, and the usual media largely ignored it. Had it been a light beige neighbor killing another, it would probably be all over the news. But the man who killed a little boy in front of the boy’s two sisters wasn’t white,
Those are the types of things that breed hate, and media discrimination is the match that lights the fire.
Yes, you are so right about the media. I titled this series Race..and Me because I wanted to examine my stand with things I have personal knowledge of. Thanks for giving me you experience and concerns also. Have a nice Sunday, remembering to celebrate Jesus.
Oneta, I took the liberty of sharing this in a WhatsApp group of people from Assam, my home state in India. Indians, by the way, are one of the most racist (closeted😀) society in the world, though they will vociferously protest that. Indians are Indians only when there is a cricket match or war against Pakistan. Otherwise they are a bunch of this and that but not Indians😀
I’m sure you did so as a means of helping someone; for that, I thank you.
Thank you for sharing these reflections etc. It is inciteful. Australia was never intended to be a multi-racial nation but a multi cultural nation. How proudly we could join the festivals and share food, costumes, and understanding of each others heritage. All were naturalised and became Aussie citizens, This was with the idea were were all under ONE LAW, It was never to be a racial divide until some immigrants began to want there own justice and law system. I saw it ALL rise up into a political, racial mess and all wanted to live by their own LAW, Media stirred politically and it became ALL about RACE and colour. All conveniently have forgotten the thread that held us all together the HIGHER LAW,,,,God’S LAW. Blessings!
God’s thread that holds us together, His Law. So true. Beautiful words.
