How dare “black America” forgive so easily
Most of the country and the world have been touched by the forgiveness granted by the families of the victims of the Charleston church murders. In an act that lives up to their faith, the families have forgiven the murderer and set the bar for civilized and compassionate behavior even that much higher. And the city has rallied behind them, all races of the city, in an attempt to heal the wound the murderer opened.
But, of course, not everyone is happy about that, such as this creature:
If we really believe that black lives matter, we won’t devalue our reality and cheapen our forgiveness by giving it away so quickly and easily. Black people should learn to embrace our full range of human emotions, vocalize our rage, demand to be heard, and expect accountability. White America needs to earn our forgiveness, as we practice legitimate self-preservation.
Or, in other words … Baltimore.
Here’s a question for you, which event makes you think more about racial healing – Baltimore or Charleston?
Who has set the example for how the races should come together in the face of tragedy, even that driven by hate, and try to heal the community?
Baltimore or Charleston?
Given what Charleston has accomplished as a community, why should anyone listen to the race baiter above?
