Protest or Cooperate

Christians, believers, and white people who get it and all (Christians, believers, and white people) who don’t –

Please take notice of what’s going on in the US. So far, it’s just been the destructive voice of the few and the rallying voice of some that we have heard this year. But I tell you, if you continue to sit by and think everything is okay, you will be in for a rude awakening. As more killings, discriminatory acts and attacks, etc. continue to happen, people of color collectively will rise up and demand change. Might I remind you of the Bus Boycott and how effective it was and they didn’t have all the social media and technology that we have available today. People of color weren’t in all types of critical positions and levels of employment back then. While you may think you’re safe in your little world, please know that when massive boycotts occur, massive strikes happen and other large scale events occur as a sign of protest, your safe little world will be affected, infected and invaded.

Speak out in your churches; imploring your church to join in the fight. You can either join the fight willingly or unwillingly but you will become involved. You can either help or just be in the way. Which do you think Jesus would require? Martin Luther King Jr. said, “[The person] who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

Will you protest or will you cooperate?

    I believe that’s one of the components that is missing from church today – social justice. But I also believe that white churches especially should be involved. This is not just a people of color issue. It is as you and King say, it is a humanity issue. Thank you for posting this commentary.
