Race based violence is an integral part of American society, because of America’s racial discriminatory slave-based laws, gun violence culture, and spiritual misinterpretation of the Second Amendment. As Americans, we tend to forgive adults for killing each other, and we punish mass killers to the nth degree of the law. However, we can never ever forgive mass killers of school children and the untold psychological effect on our children from such evil ungodly events. One of the Ten Commandments is thy shalt not kill. Individuals should not take that which they cannot give, and just for spiritual clarification God knew us before we were in our mother’s womb. Therefore, children are a gift from God. The rhetoric and actions of race-based mass violence has always existed in American society, but never as commonplace acceptable events, especially as it is becoming in the 21st century, especially since the unfortunate election of Donald J. Trump to the Presidency in 2016.


Race-based violence and murders are becoming more prevalent than it has ever been, because Trump and White Nationalist groups are stoking the ambers of racial hatred and societal unrest. Governor DeSantis of Florida is also a guilty party, because of his attacks on WOKISM, Black self-awareness. The recent race-based murders in Jacksonville, Florida are empirical evidence of DeSantis’s complicity in stoking the flames of racial confusion and hatred of minorities, especially Blacks. For example, if a so called intelligent, Harvard graduate, makes an unintelligent statement, such as: “There were benefits in slavery for Black slaves”, what then can we expect from a common individual who was not privileged to receive an Ivy League Harvard education? America, take heed: “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”


(1 Corinthians 15: 33). Keeping company with individuals, such as Donald J. Trump and Governor Ronald DeSantis, who deny the truth is a dangerous life proposition. America, to be forewarned is to be foretold: “God is not mocked, individuals reap whatever they sow”. Black people take nothing for granted, remain sober, vigilant, and stay WOKE, because if you see cattle cars lined-up in the Black community on side tracks, alarm the entire community, and most of all, remember what happened to the Jewish people in Germany. Therefore: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist in the faith,” (1 Peter 5: 8-9a). Sadly, it seems as though racism drives some Whites insane. Thank God it’s not in the DNA of Blacks to simply hate Whites because they are White. Hate the sin, and love the sinner is Godly.


The Preamble to the U. S. Constitution as well as the Constitution are almost perfect documents, even though the writers were spiritually flawed individuals, because many of them owned slaves. Yet, the documents declare that all men are created equal. Even in the twenty-first century, we cannot live by the spiritual tenets of the documents. There is still untold racial hatred in American society, even though we are a society of immigrants. We seemingly cannot live together and respect each other’s universal humanity as Americans. Unfortunately, we have created racial and ethnic divisions that are tearing the moral fabric of American society apart. Just maybe racial and ethnic tensions are the reasons why we cannot resolve our gun culture issues, because we are divided into racialized Totem pole conflict. Of course, it is spiritually written, if you live by the sword you die by the sword. It is not in the spiritual and moral DNA of Black people to simply hate White people because of skin-tone. The question of questions is whether it is in the DNA of Whites to simply hate Blacks because of skin-tone?


Of course, we all know that hatred can only be defeated by a spiritual moral God conscience. Self-righteousness is easy because it is only talk, not deeds. Righteousness is hard, because it is about walking the talk. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and too many GOP-cult MAGA-Leaders are speaking death from their tongues rather than life. However, a word to the wise should be sufficient, remember Paroah and the Israelites were slaves in Egypt, and Moses warned Pharoah that the next plague inflicted upon the Israelites will be visited upon the people of Egypt. America, it is spiritually written “if God be for you, who can be against you”. Be careful Christian Right Evangelicals, The GOP, White Nationalists, Fox “FAKE” News, and some spiritually misguided Blacks, and other minorities, especially GOP Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy. Racism is an exacting devilish concept grounded in hatred, and physically delivered in violence. Likewise, love is an exacting spiritual concept between God and individuals delivered in service to others, not self-service. Amen.

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
