Tell me, is it OK to tell a Christian Mother to kill herself?
Is it OK to tell a wife that she would be better off dead?
Is it acceptable to call me the “C” word repeatedly because you don’t agree with my religion or beliefs?
I ask all of this because I have been subjected to all of these things over the past few days. I have been called a racist, bigot, troll, parody, ugly trash, among many many other abusive terms. What has this world become where we can pass such judgement on another human?
First and foremost, I am not racist. I employ a black housekeeper. We allow black people to do our yard work and landscaping. I have donated many canned goods and used clothes to black people at church. I don’t know how I could be considered racist under any circumstances.
Secondly, I received a lot of simply cruel messages today because of a suspicious black person walking in our neighborhood. I felt compelled to call the police because we do not have blacks that live in our neighborhood. To see one was very alarming. It reminded me of Trayvon Martin in that he was in a place that he should not have been and suffered the consequences. The young officer thanked me and told me that there was nothing to be concerned about and I felt relieved after it was over, but I was truly in fear of my life. I do not think I should have to live in fear of being attacked or robbed by an outsider deciding to stroll through my upper class street.
I have alot weighing heavy on my heart and it keeps me up at night. I’ll try and gather more thoughts and express them here as needed. As always I give praise to Christ.
