Brothers and sisters, I know many of you have returned to a state of normalcy in your lives after the alarm of the 2016 election, but on January 20th, 2017, Donald Trump will officially become the President of the United States. This is a day that will shift our lives into an uncertain time, because it is the day he will have total power and none of us actually know what to expect.
Over the past few months, there has been an increase in racial attacks, physical and verbal, against Black America and other people of color. These attacks will only grow once he takes office. We will live in a new era; one that could be as unkind as our parent's and grandparent's times, and one that will take a level of faith, bravery, and resistance to overcome. But Black people have always been a resilient people and have overcome many generations of abuse and injustice.
I ask that you stand as strong as you can and not waiver. I ask that you protect yourself, of course your family, and your Black brothers and sisters from any obscene verbal or physical abuse that any white man may bring our way. Also, look out for our other brothers and sisters of color and speak out against any injustice toward them. I ask that you do all that you can do if it means recording, intervening, or if possible defending against violence. Whatever your method of defense may be; now is the time to consider and use it. Most importantly, this is not the time to turn on each other.
Being a religious man, by the grace of God, I intend on letting them kill me before I submit to evil and because I know that murder is the only way they know how to express themselves. They cannot match us intellectually therefore they have to kill us. So be it. If you see different, more power to you and I wish you all power. Nevertheless, we should all turn to what we believe and send forth a power they cannot match. A spiritual power they lack and that we have.
I ask that you pray to your God first. Be it Allah, Jesus, Buddha, Jehovah or whoever, pray that Divine Justice, Truth, Love, and Righteousness overpower their ways of evil, hate, and cruelty. If we pray together on one accord, the God of all humanity will have to answer and intervene. We may or may not see the intervention in one day, but it will come, even to the day of our deaths.
So in the name of all that is good and powerful brothers and sisters, pray first and then take your stand against evil. May the Lord God of all mankind be with you.
Please share among your friends and leaders.
