Overall a good article with many great points. I would submit however that the two greatest, most significant forces behind the unrest are #1) the continued move away from God in this country and #2) the continued rise in apostasy amongst the churches. Part of that apostasy is the rise in so-called Black Churches which preach Rebellion. Rebellion to all forms of Authority. At the root of it all is a lie and ultimately it is rebellion against God Almighty demonstrated by a lack of faith and surrender. There is a fundamental different between the theology that says "I deserve..." and "Thank God I don't get what I deserve!"

I don't like how you speak of Americans. You know nothing about what it's like to live as a black person in America. That's it. Actually as a white male you know it nothing about racism. Black people can't be racist, minorities can't be racist, it's called retaliation, from all the times we've faced discrimination and people get away with it comma and nothing ever happens to the people who oppressed because the white man is always going to be at the top to put you back down where he thinks you belong. I can tell you from my own personal experiences and that of my children of Injustice is done every single day now I am only18 Black coming from my grandmother on my dad's side I put my children are of mixed race and I'm a woman and what you would call low class in America although I don't consider myself poor by any means, and I could tell you story after Story of me and or my kids being oppressed and depressed again and again, I cannot begin to imagine even myself, how it might be being a black man or a black woman whose skin is of chocolate, or as they say darker than a paper bag, note you failed the test apparently. So please think about before you start posting on issues like this acting like you know something about the matter. Speak for yourself if you must, but don't speak what it's like to be black please. Otherwise, you're maken yourself part of the problem. I don't say this in Anger either just so you know, but if you don't want to fuel the fire, then listen to what I'm saying! Either you understand what it's like, or you don't. There's no in-between. Also just because one black person supposedly called you and told you something about their experience or something they think you might want to hear or whatever who knows if they're even black? Even if they are, that doesn't mean just because you talk to one or two black people about something, that everybody of the whole race thinks the same way! Does every white dude have the same thoughts as you? Well likewise every black individual, keyword, INDIVIDUAL-has different experiences. I could call you on the radio and tell you how I feel too, but it's going to be a much different account than one of my friends who is of a darker complexion than I. So that shows your bias right there how are you don't even see black people as individuals. Think about that for a second. Once again, I refer you to the, "are you darker than a paper bag test" If you don't know, ask somebody.

I agree with everything written in the article, but I think there’s an important elephant in the room that is missed, and that is the destruction in the Black community – especially the Black underclass – that the Left has caused over the past 50 years. And instead of apologizing and repenting, they continue to inflame the current situation. At the elite level, the Left has little interest in solving racial problems, they are only interested in power, and are very skillful in hiding their goals from often well-meaning followers. Consider LBJ’s famous comment in the mid-1960s: “You pass this [Great Society program] and we’ll have those [African-Americans] voting Democrat for the next 200 years.” The incentives launched then for breaking up the family with welfare and other entitlements have crippled the Black underclass, and that continues to this day. In addition to this strategy of buying votes is their use of sophisticated victimology, combining white guilt with Black fears. Consider BLM chants: “Hands up, don’t shoot” (never happened), “There is only one solution, communist revolution” (really?), “Tear this system down” (anarchy). Any objective person knows that “Hands up, don’t shoot” was a lie, so why chant it? Answer: to ensure the victim mentality the Left needs to stay in power. George Soros seems to have nearly unlimited funds to transport demonstrators from one city to the next, and to train them to maximize what is best for the Left, NOT for the Black community. If they really cared about Black lives they’d spend most of their time in the South Side of Chicago and similar. No, the unholy, anti-God, anti-family, pro-promiscuity, profoundly racist Left is the enemy of ALL Blacks. The answer can be found with Black Conservatives such as Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams, Star Parker, Allen West, Mason Weaver, Stacy Washington, David Webb, Deneen Borelli, Afonzo Rachel, Kira Davis, Shelby Steele, etc.; most of these are Christian. And the important characteristic that defines them all is that they have transcended victimhood, and have rational answers which are based on sound logic and Judeo-Christian principles, and not Marxism.

Number 8: Murder is unjust in any form that it comes. I respect police officers, God willing I will become one some day soon. The job is to protect and serve all, not fear and over react to some. Over reacting is not murder, it is negligence, or manslaughter. The question is in view of the history of our nation and the current American system inconsistencies that negatively effect back Americans and the black family, this along with other factors result in certain mindsets from police towards black Americans. These systems are purposely upheld by the economicly elite (in most cases whites), why not say intentional blood is on their hands as well?

When we lose respect for authority (law enforcement); we become lawless !+!
