If a man dying underneath the blended knee of a cop doesn’t make you heartbroken, we need to re-evaluate.
If a cop dying underneath the violent barrel of a another man’s gun doesn’t make you cry, we need to re-evaluate.
If a man dying underneath the treacherous hands of another’s man’s hands doesn’t make you sad, we need to re-evaluate.
If a man’s reputation dying beneath the slanderous words of another man doesn’t make you somber, we need to re-evaluate.

It is not the color of one exalted above the other.
Racism does not come in only one dark shade or another.
It can be as black as a shadow that has never seen light or as white as sunlight that has never known darkness.
If you only proclaim it comes from one group or another, we need to re-evaluate.
May we all remember, media spews only their personal biases, and our reposts only refuel their cause.
May truth be revealed to our hearts as we each turn back to HIS ways rather than our own.
May justice reign as we call it out from ALL sides, rather than just one.
May mercy prevail as we seek His heart instead than our own.
May we all re-evaluate our hearts, our thoughts, our actions.
And may we return to His cause and not “theirs” … whomever you choose “theirs” to be.

Proverbs 6:16-19, “These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.”
