Commentary On Racism

In light of the senseless deaths of African American people at the hands of law enforcement officers, there should be greater background checks on recruits as well as mental fitness screenings. If a police officer is racist and mentally unfit that makes things worse and everyone is less safe. Racism is problem enough but adding people who are licensed to carry a firearm and are trained to subdue a human being is like adding gasoline to a fire. The stress of the job can bring out the worst in people and no one is safe when that happens.

Also living in fear of one another is hurting our society in so many ways. God said fear not and to love one another. The church should play a role in emphasizing that more than they do. My friends a reckoning is coming, and it might not be good for all of us.

  1. So true. Gods word helps us to live a life pleasing to him. But most people don’t know God or care to know him. 1st John 5:8 says we can’t love if we do not know God because HE is love.
    http://Www.jw.org has taught about Gods love to people in every nation without prejudice for over 100 years. We are united by love in over 290 lands. I hope you would enjoy this free information to see how Gods will for man is being accomplished. http://www.jw.org
