This may sound like a post of an angry Black woman however I’m just standing up and speaking out for what’s right. Many White evangelicals adamantly protest and speak out on issues of abortion however they are so quiet when it comes to the issue of racial injustice. I wrote on this topic just last month, “Two Perspectives on Murder.” The same God that created the newborn babies that you protest for is the same God that created our Black brothers and sisters who are gunned down unjustly by police and so-called neighborhood watchers. Do their lives not matter? Why is it just relegated to newborns? As a mother of a twenty-year-old son my heart aches for the mother of Ahamd Arbery who was murdered by two White men because he was jogging while Black.
Why does Black lives not matter to most White so-called Christians? Why would White Christians not stand with a movement that advocates racial justice when God is a God of justice? For the “Christian” this should be abundantly clear. We serve a God who sees value and worth of all humanity that’s why He sent His Son to give His life for it (John 3:16). These are dangerous times to be Black in America especially for a Black man. I’m not even shocked anymore but grieved. People of God before we pat ourselves on the back because we fed the hungry, we clothed the naked and visited those in the hospital and incarcerated we need to do some self-examination and ask ourselves this question: Do I care more about the lives of unborn fetuses and animals more than I do a particular group of people? As people debate over what happened in Georgia, we must call it what it is: RACISM! But you know what, I am angry! That’s the problem, some people don’t get angry about anything. If it doesn’t affect them personally or their community then they don’t care. That could have been my son, if you were African American like me that could’ve been your son, your brother, your uncle etc. This was wrong! What I want to know is where are all those who protest “pro-life?” Why aren’t you shouting now. As much as you claim to be pro-life you really are pro-choice because you choose which lives are worth protesting about.
