Racism is wrong and we can see in the Word God teaches mankind to Love our neighbors as ourselves. Recently George Floyd (an African American man) lost his life as a result of excessive force by a (Caucasian) Minnesota Police Officer. In the link below you can see the police officer putting his weight on the neck of George Floyd while he is in handcuffs. At the end of the video, you see George motionless. Later at the hospital, they pronounced him dead. He pleaded “I can’t breathe while the officer kept his knee on George’s neck. I pray for justice for George, his family, and all the people who have lost their lives due to injustice. If it doesn’t come now it will come on judgment day when we all stand before God and are judged by our actions.
LIfe can be looked at like this: #if /#then
If you put your weight on someone’s neck then they very well can die. I was upset when I saw the video, praying for George’s justice.
Racism in America is still a problem and the best way to solve a problem is by talking about it, coming up with real solutions, and implementing them.
New anti-racism laws are a good way forward. #lovelaws
The opposite of Racism aka Hate is Love
The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these. Mark 12:31
No one should seek their own good, but the good of others. 1 Corinthians 10:24
For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbour as yourself.” Galatians 5:14
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3
The link is an example of someone not loving his neighbor as himself. The man ended up losing his life and this should have been avoided.
