Blood is Thicker than a False Prophet
My good people for the last two days, I’ve been giving my full attention to the plight of Haiti. As I watched it on the news, tears flowed for my people, and I had a flashback of yet again of my people who had suffered in another devastating natural disaster in the past called Katrina. What comes to my mind regarding both natural disasters that involved people of color was the lack of compassion from those on the RIGHT. In fact their response was cold-hearted and callous. None other than Pat Robertson the false prophet again has chosen to besiege us with yet another word from his devilish imagination condemning the victims and slandering those less fortunate for political reasons as did another devil’s imp—Rush the racist, drug addict.
Pat has a bad habit of proclaiming that victims of natural disasters are cursed. The thing is it seems that the only time he hears a word of damnation from his god of hate and not from the real God of mercy, compassion, and love for the poor, is when it involves politics in favor of the rightwing party. However, some of those victims he chooses to play political prophecy with blood happen to flow through my veins and I don’t take too kindly to him playing a political game at their expense, especially, when it involves devastating and deadly circumstances beyond their control. You see, blood is thicker than a false Prophet. I am tempted to write Pat a letter on behalf of the people of Haiti and tell him to kiss our black buttocks. However, I am not going to do that. Naaah! What Pat should be doing is giving some serious thought concerning his own soul.
“Robertson was criticized for failing to mention in his broadcasts his $8,000,000 (USD) investment in a Liberian gold mine. Taylor had been indicted by the United Nations for war crimes at the time of Robertson's support.” “Prosecutors also said that Taylor had harbored members of Al Qaeda responsible for the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. According to Robertson, the Liberian gold mine Freedom Gold was intended to help pay for humanitarian and evangelical efforts in Liberia, when in fact the company was allowed to fail leaving many debts both in Liberia and in the international mining service sector.” ~~Wikipedia~~
Pat always comes up with condemning words involving natural disasters that are tied to curses, especially, when it involves people of color. While claiming to be doing the Lord’s work, he takes out the time for one of his favorite pastimes, if you want to call it that: “In April 2002, Robertson acknowledged owning a race horse, named "Mr. Pat." He told a New York Times reporter that his interest in the horse was based purely on its aesthetics. "I don't bet and I don't gamble. I just enjoy watching horses running and performing." Harder to explain was why he spent $520,000 on the horse and intended it to compete at the track.” ~~Wikipedia~~
These are some of the many unforgettable moments of words that the voice he hears has given him.
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
