According to this black columnist, there *is* no systemic racism in America today. This false "racism" narrative is from Satan, not God. Here's the article: http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/sthompson/200618

Catch-22. I know. Both are true. Personally, I apologize to all people of color for the horror any of you has experienced because of racism. Disgusting, terrible, vile, against Christ. Makes me sick to think of George Floyd. I love all of you and wish I could take your pain. God, in me, loves you. Don't hate. Let's all commit to love one another (all others) as He Himself loves us and gave His life for each of us.

Great comments, Treeisa61. Sadly, a lot of evangelical leaders seem to be falling for this "identity politics" nonsense and feeding the victim mentality. As John MacArthur put it: "Social justice is a fancy name for disrupting society, for breaking down its institutions. You see it being activated in universities where students want to take over the school, overturn the authority of the teachers. You see it in governments where rioting people want to overpower the police." Besides disrupting society, I think a lot of these insurgents also want *money*. And speaking of minorities, what about Native Americans? And Asians? And Latinos? Don't their lives matter too? Why don't we hear anything about "discrimination" against them? So, are blacks more important than other minority groups???

If institutional racism is still so prevalent in our country WHY have black people risen to the highest levels of leadership in almost every sector of society? We had a black POTUS, there are black ceo, doctors, professors, etc, etc, etc. WHY are the "so called" examples of racism always a black person with a criminal record. who are resisting arrest and fighting the police? New flash! if you resist arrest and your white you might get shot to! WHY don't we ever hear examples of good, upstanding, honest, hardworking black men experiencing racism? Maybe there are judged by there character and not the color of there skin? Or is it that regardless of color if you respect the police, even if he is a bad cop, chances are you will not get shot. Isn't the biggest problem a lack of good fathers? When do you ever hear black church leaders talk about the solution verses feed the victim hood mentality?

Many helpful comments. However, some (but not all) of these people still seem to be viewing themselves primarily in terms of race rather than as children of God. Also, where's the evidence that George Floyd's killing was racist at all? If some of these people don't like hearing "all lives matter," then maybe they should expand their world view. I mean, do they care about violence being committed in general, or just about violence committed against blacks by whites?

"“Let your statement that black lives matter be louder than your opposition to the BLM movement.”" I can't do that because Black Lives Matter is a Communist organization that hates Jesus Christ and hates me and hates black people and because it serves Satan it basically hates everyone and wants us all dead. My opposition to BLM is beyond my own life, not just the lives of black or anyone else. I'm thinking a lot of the problem here is that people that ought to know better about BLM just don't seem to know any better.
