There’s been quite a bit of talk lately about Reparations for slavery – Rep Conyers introduced a revised version of his Reparations Bill recently and a college professor demands whites to keep a ‘reparations’ account.
Slavery was a disgrace in this country – and we should all be ashamed. But do any of these ‘leaders’ know that it was the DEMOCRATS who wanted to keep slavery? Do they know it was the DEMOCRATS who created the Confederacy – and yes, its FLAG that liberals hate so much? Do they know that it was the DEMOCRATS who founded the KKK? Do they know it was the DEMOCRATS who OPPOSED the 13th amendment to free slaves? Do they know that 100% of DEMOCRATS voted against this amendment? Do they know it was the DEMOCRATS who opposed the Civil Rights act of 1957? Do they know it was the DEMOCRATS that implemented SEGREGATION in the south?
So, if you ask me I’ll tell you:
You want reparations? Sure! SUE THE DNC!!
They have TONS of money and 100% of the fault! African Americans have been the TARGET of the Democrat Party since before the Civil War!
It was the REPUBLICAN PARTY that was founded to END SLAVERY. Abraham Lincoln, remember? He was a REPUBLICAN. It was REPUBLICAN President Eisenhower who introduced the civil rights bill in 1957. It was REPUBLICAN preacher Martin Luther King Jr. who fought Democrats for Civil Rights.
Almost everyone would agree that it’s wrong to punish innocent people for things they haven’t done. The white population as a whole isn’t responsible for slavery – in fact, only the DEMOCRAT ELITES are responsible for slavery, back during the Civil war and today as well. It's the DEMOCRATS who promote slavery to this day.
An article in The African Spear states that ‘Obama’s great-great-great-great grandfather, George Washington Overall, owned two slaves who were recorded in the 1850 census in Nelson County, Ky., the Baltimore Sun reported in 2007. And Obama’s great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, Mary Duvall, also owned slaves.’
But whether or not this is true, we do know the Democrat history of oppressing people, establishing rules and regulations such as Jim Crow laws for the specific purpose of enslaving as many of us as they can. And in order to enslave you they must absolutely keep you enslaved to the past.
No matter what race you are, if you’re an American, you’ve never been a slave or a slave owner in the historical sense. To the extent that you stay in the past – with guilt over something you didn’t do if you’re white, or with rage for something you never suffered if you’re black – you’re a slave to the past. And no matter what side of the equation you’re on, getting reparations won’t solve your financial problem and paying reparations won’t solve your guilt problem either.
There’s an interesting story in the Bible that helps us understand this principle: to prioritize correctly. Jesus is on his way to Galilee and He stops at a well in Samaria, where there’s a woman with a really bad reputation drawing water out of the well. Jews wouldn’t talk to Samaritans at the time, because they were polytheists and generally speaking they were unclean in every sense of the word. But Jesus reached out to all the gentiles at the time and this conversation with the Samaritan woman was critical to understanding how we must prioritize in our lives.
You see, in this encounter Jesus asked for water. In John 4:9-10 we read : ‘The Samaritan woman said to him “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?”(For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.). Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you ‘Give me a drink’, you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water”.
He would have given you ‘living water’ means he would have given you eternal life. He would have given you the desires of your heart. He would have given you what matters most. He would have given you JOY. He would have given you GRACE.
Friend, there’s no amount of reparations that will give you what you really need: joy and Grace. Whatever void you have in your life, even if you try to fill it with money, or power, or fun or whatever it is that you put at the top of your priorities, I guarantee you may be happy for a while, but then…it’s never enough to fill that void. And that’s because you’re focused on the WRONG things. You’re looking for STUFF to fill that void, but earthly pleasures don’t really fill it, do they?
The African American community of this country would be doing themselves a BIG favor if they stopped favoring the Democrat elites, who want to enslave them to the past without solving any real problem. I know what you’re thinking ‘if only I had more money, the money that the whites owe my family, I’d be OK’. But remember the many times you had that ‘if only’ thought – when you actually got what you wished for, how long did your happiness last?. 'If only I had my driver's license'. 'If only I got a good job'. 'If only I got that promotion'. 'If only my boss didn't bother me this much'.
You get the idea: happiness lasts until you wish for something bigger or better. And it's NEVER enough.
Trust me, your joy is not in getting or paying reparations – whether you’re black or white. Your joy is found in the LIVING WATER. Put the past behind you, stop listening to democrat elites and focus on the long term JOY!
The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water”
