Race baiting and truth

If you listen to the Democratic Party leadership and their propaganda arm, the mainstream news media, all black people view white people as racist, white supremacists, privileged, and just downright evil. They want to teach in public schools from the youngest of grades, a theory that a person’s skin color has historically dictated his character—the very exact opposite of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s teaching that people should be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. All black people do not think and believe as the Democratic Party and mainstream media suggest. In fact, if you go to the heartland of America, you may get an entirely different point of view. Scott Turner is one such man.

Mr. Turner is chairman of the Center for Education Opportunity at the America First Policy Institute. Previously, he served as the executive director of the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council. Before entering public service, Turner was an played cornerback in the National Football League for nine seasons with the Washington Redskins, San Diego Chargers, and the Denver Broncos. He is a strong Christian, and ordained pastor. He is also a Black man. He says, “In spite of what you may hear, black people do not want open borders, we don’t want to defund the police, and we don’t want higher taxes and more spending. Entrepreneurship, innovation, skills training, economic sustainability, and generational wealth creation are equally as important in the black community as in any other in America.”

In an OpEd piece for the National Review, Turner wrote: “While countless Americans benefited from the blue-collar boom ignited by Republican economic policies, black Americans fared particularly well, especially compared with their experience during the Obama economy. Then, black median weekly earnings grew just 1.8 percent on average, which was less than the 2.1 percent growth for white earnings. Under President Trump’s pre-pandemic economy, however, black median weekly earnings grew 4.1 percent on average — higher, in fact, than the 3.4 percent earning growth for whites. The exceptional economic success that bolstered black American families during that period was no accident. President Trump worked closely with black leaders like me to craft an agenda that would help our communities realize our dreams.”

Turner says, “Democrats may not have noticed all the work Republicans did for the black community, but black voters sure did. Between 2016 and 2020, Trump doubled his support among black women and received almost 20 percent of the vote of black men. No other Republican has come close to these numbers for decades.” Galatians 3:28 says, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” We don’t need all this race baiting and division. Try to see through all the smoke generated by the Democratic Party race artillery. Those cannons are purposely trying to divide and conquer America for a Marxist agenda. We all should look at one another as part of God’s creation, not taking the bait of hate and division, but remaining in the Truth where life and liberty reside.
