    It's time that racially prejudiced and racist old white men who put out talking points via conservative talk radio and FOX News to be repeated by their minions realize that Blacks and white people with good sense aren't buying into this regurgitated version of "The Way we Were" where they "take their country back" or return to the "days of old".

    It was old white men who brought slaves to this country.
    It was old white men who brought murder and violence to this country's shores.
    It was old white men who murdered sons and fathers thereby creating thousands upon thousands of single-parent black families.
    It was old white men who raped black mothers and daughters and then spit in the face of the black children they sired.
    It was old white men who got wealthy off the slave labor of Blacks and still prop themselves up off the fruits of that labor today.
    It was old white men who created a cottage industry out of prisons whereby they still enslave black men.
    It was old white man governor who said this strictly a white man's country, with a white man's civilization, and any dream on the part of the Negro Race to share social and political equality will be shattered in the end.
    It was old white men who structured a New Deal purposely designed to elevate Whites while keeping Blacks on the bottom.
    It was old white men who once again lynched thousands upon thousands of black sons and fathers creating single-parent black homes.
    It was old white men who pushed drugs into the black community.
    It was old white men who injected black men with Syphilis.
    It was old white man who instituted polices of racism that stretched from slavery to Jim Crow to today.
    It is old whit men who are always talking about the "Black Community" taking responsibility for its actions, but the old white men don't want to take responsibility for theirs.

    So while some old white men continue to reminisce about taking "Their" country back, let it be known that Blacks and Whites with good sense haven't declared open season on Christ because He's Righteous all the time and seated on His throne.

    But Blacks and Whites with good sense have declared it open season on the wickedness of racially prejudiced and racist old white men who think we are going to sit idly by and allow them for a third time to perpetuate this wickedness.

    Shall the mighty hand of GOD strike the United States down before HE allows it to happen again.

    What would help is if certain people stopped parroting the talking points of FOX News personalities and thinking no one is gonna speak to the truth.

    We know that isn't going to happen. Pick your spots, challenge what is wrong and hold on to your convictions but this shotgun blast posting that goes beyond the OP's lately disrupts whatever good points you might have had. Try to avoid the same "old white men" label every single time you see something you don't agree with. I've challenged racist comments in here as well but I try to be very specific when I do so. I don't use it as a launch point to make every incident into a referendum on racism.

    It's too bad some people are so stuck in the past and want to revisit it over and over and over and over again. Best choice is to pull up our breeches, take a deep breath and move forward. We can't change the past but we can change the future. Let's concentrate on that.

    The Administrators of this Baptist Board are not doing their job! This thread should be closed and deleted! Discussing racial problems is proper and might be helpful but a false diatribe like that of Zaac is destructive both to racial harmony and to this Forum!

    How about providing some links for your accusations?

    (BTW, can you name the first non-Indian slave owner in (what would become the) United States?

    It was black men in Africa who helped capture Black men to sell as slaves.
    There were black men who owned slaves.

    The problem isn't white or black never has been. The problem is the old Sin Nature in the human race always has been always will be. The only way it stops is to bring all men to salvation. that is the reality of it all.

    Nope. When you're essentially doing the same things TODAY that you did in the past and can't acknowledge it, the world won't hold its collective breath for that change.

    How about you do your own study of history? Accusations are unproven. Truth is what it is. What I mentioned is well documented.

    EXACTLY. But when you've got the folks in the church practicing racial discrimination and racism, it kinda closes the door on pointing anyone to Christ.

    You had said:

    Can you give me links to these things being done today?

    What for? I didn't say all those things were being done today. But white people, inside and outside the church, are doing the very same things they did during slavery and Jim Crow when they also came up with excuses to justify the killing of Blacks.

    The pattern repeats and as was the case back then, a whole lot of white folks in the church turn a blind eye.

    that applies to both sides of the fence, the so called Reverend Jackson and the the so called Reverend Sharpton push so much racial garbage down peoples throats. then you have the Caucasian's like the Fred Phelps I won't even try to label him as Reverend or Brother, and others who spout the same trash.

    But you know what if they lost their audience and lost media coverage a lot of this would go away. The media keeps fueling the fire. when people flock to them they keep on spouting off their racist views. Even the President gets in on it sometimes, even he and Mr. holder fuel the fire.

    It will take those who don't support those views to get the message out before things will ever change for the better. Much has since the 50's through the 70's when I grew up, racial relations are a lot better now than then.

    And just how is Zaac different than Al Sharpton other than his audience is much smaller? The OP could have been written by Al Sharpton.
