Racism: Why Hate?
When I see racist people, all I can think is, do you not have anything better to do with your time? Or life? I mean, are you serious? You would use time and energy to hate God’s creations? Get a life.
I can’t be racist. It’s not God’s will and it takes too much effort to hate. It’s pure ignorance to hate people God created.
I’m showing students, “Our Friend, Martin,” which is an awesome movie about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and his impact on the country. In the movie, there is historical footage of sit-ins and protests. With every clip, I felt something.
I was angry watching. I was hurt. I was sad. I just don’t understand how people can think that it’s OK to treat people differently just because their skin or language is different. If anything, we should rejoice in the fact that God could create so many unique individuals. We should be honored that God is so creative.
It’s sad that people look for miracles in everything else, but ignore the miracle of personhood. It’s a shame that people could see difference and see an opportunity to hate instead of love. And it’s upsetting that people choose to ignore God’s vast creativity instead of embrace it.
