Judge Me By The Color Of My Skin, Not By The Content Of My Character

I do not agree with offering anything to a person based solely on race, but I do understand the frustration. Martin Luther King famously said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

Dr. King was right. This is how people should be judged.

We all want a colored blind nation. We all want to judge people on character, or as the bible says “You shall know them by their fruits”  (Note that is does not say you shall know them by the color of the fruits). If you are treated differently than others because of your skin color – This is racism not matter how you look at it.

Today we have many groups based solely on supporting one race over another, yet it’s considered ok as long as they are not white. Why is it ok to have the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People? Would it be acceptable to have a National Association for the Advancement of white people?

MailOnline is reporting that a Texas Group has launched a scholarship for anyone who is at least 25% caucasion. They say that they will give $500.00 if you can prove you have the need.

A non-profit group has launched a college scholarship for a demographic it claims are under-represented in society – white men.

The Former Majority Association for Equality will give grants of $500 to any man from Texas who is at least ‘25 per cent Caucasian’, has good grades and can demonstrate they are in need.

Its founder Colby Bohannan claims whites feel ‘excluded’ when they apply to college and that they are ‘left out’ when it comes to funding.

The story also talks about anti-racism backlash. I wonder what race based group will be the first to stand up and say they are wrong for what they are doing.

The provocative move risks a backlash by anti-racism groups but college officials in Texas have said there is little they can do to prevent it.

I don’t think this is a good move. It will do more to stir up racial controversy than anything else, but a person doesn’t have to look far to see that this isn’t a new concept - Race based scholarship programs seem to be very common. When you give to charity, should you give to one race before another? If we see someone in need I would hope we would not base our help on race and nation of origin.

I pray that one day we will become a colored blind society that looks at everyone as children on GOD, made in the image of our creator, not the color of our creator, but this will not happen as long as we are separating ourselves by race and treating people differently based on skin pigmentation.

    I was going through my Google and stumbled across one of the most famous and realist quotes ever, but at the top of the article that had the quote was all wrong. So I’d like to correct it and I quote: Judge me not by the color of my skin, but by the judgement of my character. The awesome Dr. Martin Luther King.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.
