As long as blacks can get an apology or leave it in God’s hands, then whatever tribulation comes our way will be minimized. We have that acceptant and forgiving nature.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I watched my mother be denied care and literally bleed to death before my eyes. Her soul bled out before my eyes. She had been delayed transfusions for days . I was told to leave it in God’s hands and to consider the doctor’s emotions. I’m still f*cked up behind it enduring nightmares, battling grief and rage. I don’t think the doctor has lost a minute of sleep, but I’m suppose to consider his emotions and let God deal with him.
Houston Texans owner Bob McNair referenced not allowing the “inmates to run the prison.” We are fake outraged, but as long as he issued that apology, most of us will go back to watching the game.
White cop murders a black man, she gets off and can now have her record expunged. “God sees all. He has the last say.” There are children that will never hug their parents, mothers that will never kiss their children. A father can never play catch with his son. We are to deal with that pain so long as an apology accompanies it or we know “God will handle it.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why is it God has to handle our battles? By all accounts I’m Christian, but I never hear my non-black counterparts issue a plea to God when they are wronged. Jeremy Mardis’ family didn’t have to wait on God, but Alton Sterling family does. Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray and all of those who have become hashtags have to leave their justice up to God.
And don’t get me wrong, I’m not questioning God, I’m questioning the paradox of religion and how it controls blacks. We have to forgive and relinquish our human right to want justice or ramifications for God to handle it while others see justice. We have to wait on God and accept half -ass apologies, yet no one else needs or waits on God, but us.
I’m tired of that sh*t
