"America's chickens, have come home, to roost," stated a now-famous black Christian pastor and ex-pal of Barack Obama. How accurate that man was! No, I am not talking about 9-11 and the Muslim attack on America and her people. I am talking about America's 75-year policy of ignoring God's Word and following a multi-cultural rationalization.
Millions do not know who it was who issued this command to Moses. Believe it or not, it was the member of the divine Godhead, called "Elohim" in Genesis who became Jesus Christ of your New Testament! Here is the proof:
There is no possibility of misunderstanding or misinterpreting these verses of your Bible! Jesus Christ of Nazareth was the GOD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT! He said to the Jews, "Before Abraham was, I AM" (John 8:58). He said to Moses, who asked him his name, tell the people that "I AM hath sent me unto you." (Exodus 3:14). Look it up for yourself.
There are millions of hard-working, Christian blacks that are as American as you and I, that have fought for this country, but more importantly, live by the words of our God. This is what America was really about. Yes, our forefathers did not want an established religion, but they wanted a religious nation! They sought a Judeo-Christian nation, following sound Biblical doctrines. God made a promise that when we did not follow His laws and "And walked in the statutes of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they had made. And the children of Israel (see who Israel really is in your Bible!) did secretly those things that were not right against the LORD their God (2 Kings 17:8).
Now comes news of a result from a new poll. It disturbs the liberals and the politically correct, but anyone who is honest, black, white, purple, red or yellow, understands the root cause of the shocking findings! Yahoo News reports today:
WASHINGTON (AP) – Deep-seated racial misgivings could cost Barack Obama the White House if the election is close, according to an AP-Yahoo News poll that found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks – many calling them "lazy," "violent," responsible for their own troubles. The poll, conducted with Stanford University, suggests that the percentage of voters who may turn away from Obama due to his race could easily be larger than the final difference between the candidates in 2004 – about two and one-half percentage points.
The survey has even more findings. "Forty percent of all white Americans hold at least a partly negative view toward blacks, and that includes many Democrats and independents. More than a third of all white Democrats and independents – voters Obama can't win the White House without – agreed with at least one negative adjective about blacks, according to the survey, and they are significantly less likely to vote for Obama than those who don't have such views."

AP went on with this quote: "We still don't like black people," said John Clouse, 57, reflecting the sentiments of his pals gathered at a coffee shop in Somerset, Ohio. Given a choice of several positive and negative adjectives that might describe blacks, 20 percent of all whites said the word "violent" strongly applied. Among other words, 22 percent agreed with "boastful," 29 percent "complaining," 13 percent "lazy" and 11 percent "irresponsible." When asked about positive adjectives, whites were more likely to stay on the fence than give a strongly positive assessment. More than a quarter of white Democrats agree that "if blacks would only try harder, they could be just as well off as whites.” Those who agreed with that statement were much less likely to back Obama than those who didn’t. Among white independents, racial stereotyping is not uncommon. For instance, while about 20 percent of independent voters called blacks "intelligent" or "smart," more than one third latched on the adjective "complaining" and 24 percent said blacks were "violent." Nearly four in 10 white independents agreed that blacks would be better off if they "try harder." (excerpt from the AP story) (The survey of 2,227 adults was conducted Aug. 27 to Sept. 5. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.1 percentage points.)
Erik Eckholm's column, "Plight Deepens for Black Men, Studies Warn" at Allhiphop.com states: "Black men in the United States face a far more dire situation than is portrayed ... . [N]ew studies, by experts at Columbia, Princeton, Harvard and other institutions, show that the huge pool of poorly educated black men are becoming ever more disconnected from the mainstream society, and to a far greater degree than comparable white or Hispanic men."
"There's something very different happening with young black men, and it's something we can no longer ignore," said Ronald B. Mincy, professor of social work at Columbia University and editor of "Black Males Left Behind" (Urban Institute Press, 2006).
"Over the last two decades, the economy did great," Mr. Mincy said, "and low-skilled women, helped by public policy, latched onto it. However, young black men were falling farther back."
"If you look at the numbers, the 1990s was a bad decade for young black men, even though it had the best labor market in 30 years," said Harry J. Holzer, an economist at Georgetown University and co-author, with Peter Edelman and Paul Offner, of "Reconnecting Disadvantaged Young Men" (Urban Institute Press, 2006).

Yes, it is not popular to say these things, but most Americans have a right to feel the way they do about black America, and all of the media hype is not going to make it go away. As long as one fears for their lives whenever they are in a black area, or watches any news broadcast, or sees the fate of half of the NBA and NFL players in the newspapers, this so-called racism isn't going to end. It is not racist to be in fear when you have a reason to be in fear!
Black Americans can change their fate, they can merge themselves into our culture and most Americans want that to happen, but unless there is a big change in that community, the continued fear and distrust of blacks will continue. Their leaders hold the key to the improvement of their own people. America is waiting for it to happen, and I hope that someday it will.
There was a time in this country when people spoke up for God and country. Today, we are ridiculed and called "racist," "homophobes" and "just plain dumb." That's fine with me. I guess I am not "modern" and "enlightened."
