Today is Father’s Day. I cannot help but ponder what kind of father young Trayvon Martin would have been. I also ponder why society and media has anointed this “thug” as a martyr and symbol of racial injustices in America?
My experience on Friday afternoon seeing an unknown black male in our neighborhood first made me think of Trayvon. Why don’t these kids stay in the neighborhoods where they belong? WHY do they risk their very life by wandering into places they should not be?
I do not blame police for seeking these young criminals out. I do not blame the police for doing their JOB and protecting the residents of their assigned neighborhoods. Why is it then, that when someone…anyone… needs help that they RUN to the police? You can’t have it both ways people. Either they are “murdering” your young black sons or you desperately need them when your EBT card gets lost. Or you lose your pack of cigarettes.
Hypocrisy makes me ill. If you hate the police so much then stop calling them. I implore you black protesters to get a job. Educate yourself. Ween yourselves off of the vicious cycle of promiscuity and welfare. Attend an adult Bible Study.
Let the story of young Trayvon be a lesson. Stay in your assigned quarters. Do not wander or be promiscuous. Do not live in a way that God would not approve of. Jesus is both the path and the answer to Salvation
Blessings be to God as always, friends. I wish you a blessed Father’s Day to all and may you be prosperous is Christ.
