    This video is well done. Great to pass on to fellow Christians struggling with this issue.

    It seems, based on Friel's statement the best way forward is to just teach what the bible says about race and how we are to treat the lowly, not just about blacks.

    Jason Whitlock is a rare voice of reason in the sports world. Regularly calls out "godless" BLM.

    He defends a football coach who was fired for a sign saying "All Lives Matter to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."

    All Pastors should trumpet this truth.

    Setting aside your personal experiences, I can tell you I was born and raised in Florida by parents from the hills (hollar) of West Virginia and Alabama. So on a personal level I know about the south on a personal level. I am much older than you so I have a longer experience to draw from.

    But what is problematic with your claims are that blacks had less opportunities. This is false. I think you need to go back and research wealthy blacks. I would also add that black families faired far better until the 60's when the government social programs kicked in. I suggest you look into the writing of black men like Thomas Sowel and Walter E. Williams. You could learn quite a bit.

    I would also add that it was not just whites that owned slaves and it was not just blacks who were slaves. I suggest you do your research on that as well to include who was the first man to go to court to fight to keep a man a slave in this country.
