I find it interesting that a place like Seattle, Washington, would be that interested in transforming the racial conversation when they have a horrific track record of criminalizing African American children at a young age, which becomes a precursor to long-term incarceration.
As one people, we can’t demand others to see us differently if we don’t see ourselves differently. How often do we edify each other? Do we find introspective value within?
Also, we can’t expect others to think twice about pulling the trigger if we are not willing to think twice ourselves.
Cosmetic changes are for the empty heads. Meaningful change is more than scratching the surface ”with symbolic laws”, meaningful change awakens the heart and consciousness of each individual.
Today, many enlist in equality for all naratives. My question, Who are we striving to be equal to? The goal is to be more and more like the Christly example. Equality in this world is enslavement. We must never devalue someone else to find our value. It doesn’t work that way.
Who thinks that they are less than equal? I was taught by my parents to try for excellence in all Things. We can only do that by turning to Christ. His grace takes us across the finish line. In Christ, I am already equal to other children of God. His love never fades. 🙏🏾🎉
