Black and White, It’s Real; Talking Heart2Heart



In 2008 America elected a black man as the President of the United States. President Barack Obama made history as the American dream unfolded right before our eyes. I am speaking from the view of a person of color, so I feel safe saying this was the first glimpse of the world-changing from the obvious black and white and all the wrong as we knew it. I must say the world has changed, but there is still an issue of black and white and the wrong that continues to linger in our court system. The justice for all in our court system rarely shows up for people of color in this great country of ours. It’s real, and it must be dealt with.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been told that America is the land of the free, and the home of the brave. I was taught the pledge of allegiance at an early age which states, “I  pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” This salute is set in stone to represent the unity, pride, loyalty and justice of our country toward all. So any injustice in our system is wrong on every level. Galatians 3:8 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

We elect officials to represent all people by implementing laws, policies, legislature, and constitutions to make sure fairness to all, but this is not always the case. Isaiah 10:1 “Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed.America has a black and white issue, but it’s been somewhat under cover, but it’s real. Although we have made some progress on the subject of equality over the past 30 years, now it seems we have come to a stand still which appears to resemble a state of regression.

As young black unarmed males are gunned down by white armed males, the issue of black and white and right and wrong will remain at the forefront of our justice system, or the lack there of. This issue is causing division in this country where supposedly opportunities are endless and dreams come true. It is difficult to grasp this idea when our laws favor a certain group of people, so how is it possible for any person of color to believe that opportunities are at arms reach.

Some laws favor a certain group of people, while it disfavors another, for example, the Stand Your Ground Law. It has become a scapegoat of self-defense on the grounds of murder excluding people of color. This didn’t work for a person of color (a black woman in Florida) who fired warning shots in the air to stop her abusive husband. She received 20 years for firing warning shots. While on the other hand, in the same state two (17 year old black unarmed males) were shot and killed by two different white armed males. One of the white males received a (NOT GUILTY VERDICT). The other white male received 20 years for attempted murder for each of the (3) other teenagers in the same car with the murdered (17 year olds), but the jury couldn’t convict the white male for his murder. So how clear is this black and white issue to you? Anyone who thinks otherwise is in a state of denial or pure ignorance.

The Stand Your Ground Law is based on a person feeling threaten in anyway, and this gives them the right to shoot first and ask questions later. James 4:17 “So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.” This law needs immediate attention because it threaten the life of every black male in every state where this law is in effect, it doesn’t look so good for black females either. The bases of this law is just wrong rather you be black, white, or striped. There is NO JUSTICE for the victim as this law currently stands. This is a serious problem, and it’s real.
