Still Wondering Why?

                                       Be Real!
Cannot and will not accuse Joe Biden, former Vice President of the United States of engaging in racist talks because it is obvious he is a man of the people. And that includes everybody. But his "you ain't black" comment directed at black people who may be trying to decide between him and Trump is to say the least an expression out of kilter. He tried to make a great point but without sound judgment. However, it is extremely difficult to impossible to find a white man or person of his age who does not believe in racial superiority. It looks like that's how they were raised--doesn't make it excusable --and when it has been drilled into your head over a long period of time, it becomes the way you look at people who are of African descent. THAT IS REALITY! Yet, some have found it in the goodness of their heart to accept all people as equal even though being accepted as such is everybody's right.


Bill Clinton, former President of the United States was quoted in 2008 as having said of Barack Obama who was on his way to becoming president of the United States, "A few years ago this guy would have been getting us coffee." Joe Biden's remark which has drawn much fire recently on Twitter is made in the same vein. It is the arrogance of the white man in connection with slavery. It is not by accident that both Joe Biden and Bill Clinton sound alike in their meanings. Would a person be less white if he was making a consideration between Trump and Biden? No! Sometimes it is to please their white listeners, and sometimes it is out of sheer arrogance. At other times, it is when a black person is winning, like Barack Obama in 2008, and who in the consideration of some was not supposed to win. The way to wound a black person's pride and make him or her feel less than is to remind them of the days of slavery. This behavior will remain for a little longer, even though it is now being openly challenged and those fighting this obnoxious behavior will win.


We are seeing the last days of this kind of behavior, the rush to give a black person a derogatory name who may be behaving or has behaved like any other human being in a similar situation, and often which has nothing to do with the issue at hand. First, the majority of such people are now looking at the exit, they are getting old. Secondly, it is obvious that there are some in the younger generation who are following their example, but I guarantee you God is at hand to deal decisively with the matter. The challenges America has not seen are more that the ones it has seen, where feeling like a lord will be out of the question.
