When I consider the question of "racism" I consider first what the Bible says about it. The words "racist" or "racism" don't appear in the KJV, but it is clear from the text of the 1611 AV that there is no respect of persons with God, and if we have respect to persons we commit sin and are transgressors. Results: 15 For 'respect person'Le 19:15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not RESPECT the PERSON of the poor, nor honour the PERSON of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour. De 1:17 Ye shall not RESPECT PERSONs in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God's: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it. De 16:19 Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not RESPECT PERSONs, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous. 2sa 14:14 For we must needs die, and are as water spilled on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; neither doth God RESPECT any PERSON: yet doth he devise means, that his banished be not expelled from him. 2ch 19:7 Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor RESPECT of PERSONs, nor taking of gifts. Pr 24:23 These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have RESPECT of PERSONs in judgment. Pr 28:21 To have RESPECT of PERSONs is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress. La 4:16 The anger of the LORD hath divided them; he will no more regard them: they RESPECTed not the PERSONs of the priests, they favoured not the elders. Ac 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no RESPECTer of PERSONs: Ro 2:11 For there is no RESPECT of PERSONs with God. Eph 6:9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there RESPECT of PERSONs with him. Col 3:25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no RESPECT of PERSONs. Jas 2:1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with RESPECT of PERSONs. Jas 2:9 But if ye have RESPECT to PERSONs, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 1pe 1:17 And if ye call on the Father, who without RESPECT of PERSONs judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: I think what has happened is that the "anti-racism" has become worse than the original racism because the "anti-racism" has been weaponized for political purposes and no longer has anything to do with promoting love and tolerance and peace. If a person's racism is sincere, as it were, so to speak, it can be healed, but, how can a weaponized politically motivated and fanatical "anti-racism" be healed? Does anyone know?

If we're going to talk racism, let's start with Black Lives Matters, a black-supremacist organization that is every bit as racist as the Ku Klux Klan. So, is racism against whites okay???

“If you think you have it bad here, look at (fill in the blank)” is just the PC version of “America — love it or leave it.”

I am really tired of hearing the whole leftist blame game to explain racist tensions. I am not a leftist, but I think that the right uses this kind of language to pacify their behavior and to cast blame. Both sides, in fact, use these tactics--keep blaming the other side and not ever getting to the heart of the issue. Why did you even feel the need to write this article? Whose conscious are you trying to appease? Yes, other countries are more racist--many of their descents are here in the U.S. spreading that ideology. If you want to see the comparison, pull up stats from the southern part of the United States. Look at how people start putting up Confederate flags, for example, just when African Americans begin to protest. Then, they claim to be honoring some ancestor or their history. That kind of action probably doesn't get classified as racist, so your statistics probably missed it. A "neighbor" down the street put up a large Confederate flag when the George Floyd protests started. He didn't have one up for 15 years, but it is there now. Is it a racist intimidation tactic? An "in your face" response? You tell me Dr. Brown since you seem to be such an expert on racism in America. Oh, and if you really want to know why so much frustration is here (in the U.S.) now, watch this video all the way through. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6lGG7OE3-0

To Marian121, I am a little surprised you put your comment on a Christian website. Don't you know that the real God of the Bible says that witchcraft is an abomination? Making a deal with the Devil is always a bad deal and you should repent and ask God's forgiveness, in my opinion. Jesus could have done the same thing but with no negative side effects that you're likely to experience over time. Not to mention that making a spiritual slave out of your husband is not God's best plan for him either. Not that what he did was good either. There is freedom in the Lord, but not in Satan. God wants what's best for both of you and loves both of you, but what you're doing is not right.
