The Deeply Pessimistic Intellectual Roots of Black Lives Matter, the ‘1619 Project’ and Much Else in Woke America

I grew up in and served America in a time when we were taught respect for everyone. My mother was a Public school teacher and counselor, and taught us to be color blind; and although we were not particularly religious, it is also what Jesus taught  Matthew 22:39.

Unfortunately, that is no longer the America some intellectual elitist and others would have us live in. The following article lays out very clearly the path of destruction America is headed for. The question is what are we to do about it? – Mike

If much of the dire rhetoric behind America’s moment of racial reckoning seems from an oppressive world of a half-century ago, that’s because it comes from “critical race theory,” a decades-old philosophy deeply skeptical about the possibility of racial progress.

It turns up in the best-selling book, “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism,” in which readers are told that “white identity is inherently racist” and that “the white collective fundamentally hates blackness.”

The New York Times’ historically revisionist 1619 Project, published last year and distributed to more than 3,500 K-12 classrooms, similarly instructs that “anti-black racism runs in the very DNA of this country.”

Why mostly because they expounded biblical doctrine that did not agree with the liberal left’s agenda. Were they lying no, were they being malicious in their intent no, they were just speaking out against things the bible calls sinful and evil. So of course that is Hateful or is it?

El temor de Jehová es aborrecer el mal; La soberbia y la arrogancia, el mal camino,
Y la boca perversa, aborrezco. (RVR 1960) 

God has a different interpretation of hate speech. His word says all who are prideful and arrogant, that is hold themselves above God’s Holy Word, (saying abortion, same sex unions, transgenderism, etc. are all okay) pervert God’s word and turn it for evil; this is real hate speech. True Christians should speak out against such things but never in a hateful manner, they are to do so with the love of God in their hearts because they Fear (have and awesome respect for) God and all He commands.
