As racial justice protests have intensified morphing into riots and looting following the shooting of Jacob Blake, the killing of George Floyd and others public support for the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has declined.
As a Black American male who was born into an environment where my biological father was absent, raised on the west side of Chicago and who attends a Historically Black University (also known as an HBCU) I am totally against Black Lives Matter (BLM). The sentiments is overly obvious; of course Black lives matter, in fact any human life has an intrinsic value given (not by government or by a “social justice” group) but given by God. However, the organization (Black Lives Matter Inc.) and the surrounding infrastructure I do not (and in fact cannot) support.
These people come off as your “ideal White person”; tolerant and accepting of all people, especially Black people who are nothing more than oppressed victims in need of help, affirmative action, and massive government intervention, but history shows us it’s mostly vain and unsuccessful pandering and pontificating. White liberals have been using Black bodies for decades to push their agendas. The film GET OUT is an amazing reminder.
COVID -19 has been declared a global pandemic and much fear and panic has surfaced in many. As officials and experts work to flatten the curve, slow the spread and develop a vaccine and as the death tolls increase in the U.S. so does the origin stories of Coronavirus Disease (COVID 19).
A man in Alabama has been put to death for the murder of three police officers despite a campaign to save him .

Here’s what the basis should be: punishment must be proportional to the offense (Exodus 21:23-25). In this case, the extreme sanction of death should be considered only in the most serious offenses. nit should be rare and the last possible option, never the first.
There is an awakening that many are trying to ignore but they can’t. Conservatism is experiencing a reshaping, a renaissance, a fresh resonance and in many ways a much needed revitalization. The championing cry is becoming; lets make conservatism great again!
Former NFL player Jack Brewer once raised campaign money for President Barack Obama, but now he’s among the increasing number of Black voters who support President Trump.
There is no value in victimhood. One of the principle ways that people mismanage their anger is by playing the role of victim. According to Robert W. Firestone Ph.D. many people adopt the victim role, albeit unintentionally because they are afraid of their anger, deny its existence in themselves, project it onto other people, and anticipate aggression or harm from them.
This victimhood narrative is pumping through liberal media and ensnaring the minds of many of my people. Black Americans often push aside intellectual thought and logic for emotional responses and race baiting. It is not emotion that can rebuild the black community, but only self-initiative and hard work that can do that.

In the age of Donald Trump and “Make America Great Again” terms such as racist, bigot, and hater have been used constantly. There has seemingly been a resurgence of “civil rights” and a fight against a “racist establishment”. These claims while presently aimed towards a political party’s leader (Republicans) have been traditionally aimed towards the party itself.
