With all the talk in the news these days regarding unarmed “black” males being shot and killed by law enforcers, resulting in some folks protesting, debating, looting, stealing, ransacking, destroying properties; and others contemplating retaliation. Then there are others who are sincerely seeking answers on how to rid the evil of racism, and a few folks who understand that as paradoxical as it may seem, the ruler of such evil, knows no name, age color or creed.
Since racism continues to remain an issue of debate, and given that I am a mother of three African American males, I cannot help but to explore this matter from a spiritual perspective of the soul’s emotional realm; because it is quite disturbing. Some may find this article as an unpopular view; however, I am committed to leading you to reading experiences beyond traditional viewpoints with assessments from the soul’s realm that is deeper than some folks may have ever read or heard, and others likely have heard but not necessarily associated the evil of racism to a spiritual dilemma.
Evils such as racism, does appear to target a specific group, age, gender, skin color and creed because of superior attitudes, massive disparity, discrimination and heinous violence that has existed against varied group of people for many years. But when I hear of the various kidnappings, brutal and violent murders of little children by a person of the same skin color, I am more than convinced that evil knows no name, age, color or creed. So If the truth is told, racism is only one entity of evil.
There are so many other evils that also violates a person’s gender, age, skin color, creed, and break down the core of our self-worth, but does not get the same outcry and protest as racism. Those evils range from adultery, domestic violence, murder, lying, stealing, and raping, kidnaping, physical, verbal, emotional and sexual abuse.
There is also those subtle bigotry comments made towards a specific group of people or religion that may seem less harmful behind the scene than the overt hate crimes; but in God’s eyes, racism or not, subtle, passive or aggressive evils, violate one of His top two laws, and that is to love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12 chapter, verses 30-31).
With that said, I will lay the groundwork of the underlying workings of racism and its relationship to a spiritual emotional dilemma.
