One of the most oft used soundbites by liberals to discredit America is:
“America is a racist nation!” (To clarify, by “racist nation” they mean “White racist nation”.*) However, I found the only way to hold to this myth is to willfully distort history. Here is the key--history becomes distorted by rejecting God’s Sovereignty and providence. Why? Because it is impossible to understand history (His-story) apart from God’s revelation**!
“If you don’t see the divine hand behind the scenes, history
becomes an incomprehensible enigma”.
The two points that pertain to this tidbit: “Accusation” and “Change”. Let’s begin with Accusation. The Bible defines Satan as the accuser of the brethren (Rev12:10). However, even though Satan is the father of lies (Jn8:44), he does not lie while accusing the brethren! Why? Two reasons:
i.Those he accuses are literally guilty.
ii.He makes his accusation to God…to Whom he cannot lie.
Therefore, when Christians sin, Satan can rightfully accuse us before God. However, because Jesus became our substitutionary sacrifice (Jesus paid the price by taking the penalty for our sin on Himself), all of Satan’s evidence to accuse us has been eliminated!
Therefore, Satan’s tactic of accusation is not for the purpose of encouraging repentance, but rather to destroy the brethren! In other words, because the wages of sin is death (Rom6:23), Satan believes he can force God’s hand to judge the brethren because all mankind has sinned(Rom3:23)!!
What does this have to do with America? Everything!!! Liberals use the very same tactic of accusation!!! Like Satan, the liberal purpose of their accusations is not to find ways of building racial harmony, to improve our nation; but to destroy it—and start over!! How? The liberal objective is to find a way of establishing as fact that America is an irredeemably racist nation, because it was built upon a systemically racist foundation, which cannot be repaired! And, what is that ‘way’? ‘American slavery!’ Here is their driving principle: Find a way to permanently connect the White Supremacy of American slavery, to contemporary White racism, thereby bringing White Supremacy from the past into the present, which convicts contemporary America of irredeemable systemic racism---whose only remedy is to tear it all down, and start again!
So, how do they do it?
One powerful means is to incessantly repeat old words, while simultaneously introducing newly created words and phrases into the consciousness of culture, like: -colonialism; -intersectionality; -Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome; -red-lining; -income disparity; -White Privilege; -Implicit Bias; -Unconscious Bias; -equity; -Police brutality; Whiteness; Multi-racial Whiteness; -Anti-Racism; -1619 project; -systemic racism; -defund the police; -White Fragility; -CRT, etc.
These terms are not meant to be in any order, but to reveal ‘a’ technique. Through incessant public repetition of these words and phrases, liberals have been able to sell White Supremacy to our present culture so that it is now normal to think: “Whites have privilege!” which means “All Whites are racist!” But, because American Slavery also rests on White Supremacy, how easy is it to connect White Supremacy (present) with White Supremacy(past)!!! The phrases are the same!
However, what has also had an impact is shortening the phrase: “White Privilege” to “Whiteness”, which allows them to connect all the above words and phrases to Whiteness. In other words, to study American Slavery in our schools today, one must study Whiteness which includes all the above words---therefore, American Slavery is now inseparably linked to Whiteness, which means the White Supremacy of slavery equals the White Supremacy of the present!
Another proof of my contention is a statement made by President Barak Obama, in an interview by Mark Moron, carried on NPR radio. President Obama said, “What is also true is that the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives — you know, that casts a long shadow. And that's still part of our DNA that's passed on. We're not cured of racism”.
You see…Obama uses ‘slavery’ as his foundational evidence to accuse America of ‘systemic racism’!! This is ‘THE’ liberal viewpoint!! Yet, it is totally false!!! Why? Remember, human DNA is immutable… therefore, if American racism is comparable to DNA—it cannot change, i.e.we can never be cured of it!!! But—America abolished slavery—so, America did in fact change! Therefore, if America has changed, and it has, then Obama is wrong; and so is his (and the others) accusation of systemic racism!!!!
Returning to ‘Satan the accuser’, if the evidence that our sin no longer exists is the Cross of Christ, which gives Satan no legal grounds for accusation…in the same manner, the abolishment of American slavery---is absolute proof that America has changed---and our nation cannot, and should not, any longer be accused of “systemic racism”!
Still not convinced? How about a little American Exceptionalism—as proof of change!!!
1.Barak Obama was the first Black American president. If every Black and Hispanic person in America had voted for him, he would never have been elected! In other words, White people were responsible for voting the first Black American into the office of President!!!
2.There is no record in human history of a predominantly White nation electing a Black president—the U.S. is the first in the history of the world!! No European nation has done it! No Black African nation has ever elected a White leader! Not even Brazil*** has ever had a Black president!
3.Obama is the first Black American president to be elected by Whites to the office—twice!! He served two terms as President totaling 8 years!!!! This has never happened before…in the history of the world!!!
4.There is no record of a predominantly White nation (or Black nation) voting a former member of a group it once enslaved, as its leader…I repeat, in the history of the world!
5.There is no record of a predominantly White nation (or Black nation) voting a former member of the group it once enslaved, as its leader---twice! I repeat, there is no record of this…in the history of the world!!!
6.When the Declaration of Independence was passed in 1776, less than one year later Vermont partially abolished slavery!!! Prior to 1776, there is no record of any nation, people group, tribe, or race—to ever abolish slavery…in the history of the world!!!!
7.In 1780, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, fully abolished slavery. There is no record of any nation, people group, tribe, race, or tongue, to ever fully abolish slavery---in the history of the world!!!
8.In 1784, Connecticut and Rhode Island abolished slavery.
9.In 1786ish, Vermont returned and fully abolished slavery.
10.In 1789, Congress passed the Northwest Ordinance, which allowed Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, etc, into the union…without slavery, i.e. as free states!!!
11.The Constitution was not ratified until 1789. Therefore, prior to this date as stated previously above, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, all had abolished slavery…using only their conscience!!! In other words, no federal law existed at that time requiring these states to abolish slavery! I repeat, this had never before happened…in the history of the world!
12.After ratification of the Constitution, the state of New York abolished slavery in 1799.
13.In 1802 (or 1804), New Jersey also abolished slavery.
Contrary to Obama and liberalism, these American states all changed!!! In other words, through God’s conviction of sin, repentance arose, enabling God to move, to end slavery in America!!! I repeat…these states were the first to abolish slavery of any nation, people group, tribe, or race---in the history of the world!!!
In conclusion, true repentance leads to good change, and good change always ends with gratitude. Just like the authentic Christian is full of gratitude, and commanded to rejoice in the Lord always (Phil4:4), because his/her sins have been cleansed by Jesus’ Blood; so too, authentic Americans rejoice and are very grateful to live in this great nation that--through repentance****--has irrefutably changed!! As a consequence…God has blessed this nation more than any other nation…in the history of the world!!!!
Therefore, we are not ignorant of the schemes of Satan(2Cor2:11), and will not, and must not, sit back and allow CRT advocates, Howard Zinn supporters, and Nicole Hannah Jones’ “1619 Project” teachers, as well as other liberal racists, continue to remain unopposed in their efforts to illegally accuse this great nation of past sins…for which we have been cleansed!!!
I choose to give thanks to the Providential God for America…how about you?
