How did we get to the point that all we do is hate? What did it take to pull off the greatest cascade of lies right before our eyes? Who is to blame? Those are some of the questions I will unpack and help to shine a light on the axe that is chopping down the American tree.

The world is more connected than ever. With the increasing number of social tools online we have created a world were opportunity it ripe to learn from others. If we can now take the same tools or recreate those tools to assure that trusted sources are sharing information, we can close the gap that the same tools have widened.

“We have in fact, two kinds of morality, side by side: one which we preach, but do not practice, and another which we practice, but seldom preach.” ~ Bertrand Russell

Take a walk. Take in the air you breath. Take in the sights of nature and how it functions. Then ask yourself one simple question to give it perspective. Could I have created this? Dose your brain even compute the possibility of what life truly is? Are you aware that you are a product of a larger mind? I am not telling you to get down on your knees prostrate…

In the vastness of our universe stands a planet ripe with distortion. Corrupted by the vanity of being. Trailing behind the idea of universality with the drive of self-serving vanity. While we search for another rock to inhabit, we are speeding towards destroying the rock we already have. Ripe as it is becoming, we are speeding up the process of its inevitable rot.

The Following does not apply to all white Americans. It only applies to those who subscribe to the narrative of white supremacy to get by in thier daily lives.

Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14

Within the African America Communities across the nation of practicing Christians; there has always been a knowing of exclusion of rights.
