Now see this image from the 60s in America:
How ironic it is that the American civil rights movement was orchestrated in part by Jewish interests such as Stanly Levison a supposedly 'former' communist, who spoke Left but lived Right, who provided financial and oratorical assistance to Martin Luther King Jr, then Goodman and Shwermer who were murdered in Missippi by a white man.
How about good old Bull Connor saying "Ya caynt mix the races....ya just caynt!"
Reniqua Allen (African American) writes in the Guardian:
I think about all the nights I plan out that were based on the racial and ethnic make-up of the crowd I am going out with. If I am hanging with black friends, I likely go to an all-black establishment, where I know my friends will like the music, and the mating potential. If I am hanging out with an all-white crowd, I immediately cross all black locations off the list, not wanting anyone to feel uncomfortable. Instead, I relegate myself to being one of a few blacks in the crowd. If it's going to be a night with mixed company, the venue would be more likely to be up for grabs. But an all-black locale still would probably be out of the question.
The heading of her article from which the quote is taken is:
"Even now, there are two Americas: one for brown people, one for whites. The difference is that we choose it today"
Welcome to reality of the human race. "Preference" for ones own kind. This reality makes a mockery of the holier than thou calls for desegregation coming from so called civil rights activists.. what they really wanted was not the absence of segregation, but the freedom to self segregate. They still wanted to be with their own kind, but just not 'forced' to be that way. So the charges of 'racism' might well be boomeranged back on themselves....and the real problem was lack of liberty to 'choose' what the law made formal.
A Word of Hope? We certainly won't find any hope to solve this dilemma coming from the natural human being. We are what we are in our natural state. Where is hope to overcome these racial barriers?
26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.(Gal 2:26ff)
The letter of Paul from which I extracted that quote above, also speaks about the other theme in this post.."Liberty"
"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." (Gal 5:1)
Conclusion.... we need 2 things.. liberty and Christ. Liberty alone will not solve racial problems or self segregation issues.
