Michelle Obama's Problem With "White Men"

Millions of us who grew up going to Sunday School remember the little chorus, "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world; Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight..."

While claiming to be Christians, some secular progressives are condemning America as a "racist" country influenced by "the rage of white men"---while they themselves advance racism and bigotry.

Some in the press are condemning black pastors for claiming only God's grace can heal our land.

This week Michelle Obama is one of several prominent voices.

Last Tuesday at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women, former First Lady Michelle Obama said when she attended the State of the Union address she would notice the Republican side was "all men, all white," and that was why she argued many people of color "don't trust politics."

Mrs. Obama said, speaking of color, "We would be working actively to mix it up, so we're getting a real broad range of perspectives on every issue. Shoot, I would see that in Congress."

She said, "At the State of the Union address...when you are in the room, what you can see is this real dichotomy. It's a feeling of color almost. On one side of the room is literally gray and white. Literally, that is the color palette on one side of the room. On the other side of the room, there are yellows and blues and whites and greens. Physically, there's a difference in color, in the tone, because on one side all men, all white, on the other side some women, some people of color."

She continued-- "I look at that, and I go, no wonder. No wonder we struggle, no wonder people don't trust politics."

Then she offered, unknowingly, an indictment of herself and those who are obsessed with blaming racism by whites, particularly "white men," for every ill in our country.

She said, "We're not even noticing what these rooms look like."

Therein, Mrs. Obama, is the problem. You are too obsessed with the color of people's skin to notice anything else.

CNN featured a column this week written by Naaz Modan, editor of "Muslim Girl" magazine.

She too is looking at the color of the skin, rather than the content of people's character.

She and Mrs. Obama share a common belief.

She declares that the mass shooting that took place in Las Vegas last Sunday night was a result of America "silently accepting the rage of white men."

Modan claims that "If mass shootings were perpetrated by brown bodies, this would quickly be reframed and reformed as an immigration issue. If thousands died at the hands of black men, it would be used to excuse police brutality, minimize the Black Lives Matter movement and exacerbate the 'raging black man' as stereotype. If mass shooters identified as Muslim, it would quickly become terrorism and catalyze defense and security expenditures."

She says, "An over affinity for guns among white men, dangerous against any other backdrop, gets defended as patriotism by many conservatives or even as white pride by those on the alt-right."

Well, fortunately for Michelle and MS. Modan, the shooter in Las Vegas looks like a white man---which they believe makes their point.

Modan says, "Make no mistake; this is war culture that has dressed up as Uncle Sam and emboldened itself into the American psyche."

After publishing this column worldwide, CNN adds, "The views expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author."

Pontius Pilate learned it takes more than a bowl of water to wash one's hands of a matter and absolve all responsibility.

Naaz Modan may not be aware that Martin Luther King, Jr. wisely said, "I look for a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

But why is Michelle Obama obsessed with judging people by the color of their skin?

A year ago, Dr. Ben Carson wrote an article that both Christian Michelle and Muslim Naaz should read. And consider.

In it, Carson emphasizes the need for better education for blacks---among other things.

And then asks his fellow blacks to consider a few things that characterized the Obama administration, as follows:

"I hope you will talk them over with your family and your neighbors", he wrote:

1. Why can’t your children choose better schools right now? Today? Can you think of a reason that would justify keeping a kid trapped in a school that’s failing?

Don’t you deserve the same right as everybody else to choose a better school for your children?

Hillary Clinton got to choose a good school for her daughter. Don’t you deserve that same right?

2. Why are Democrats in the Department of Education imposing policies that threaten the existence of HBCUs, while the Ivy League got $30 billion over four years from the government?

3. And why are Democrats waging an ideological crusade to close down trade schools, destroying the dreams of thousands of African Americans who want to learn practical skills in order to get a job?

4. Why don’t rich Democrats make good education for African Americans a priority? I ask because, believe me, what rich Democrats want, they get. And they have shown that they don’t care enough about the education of African-American children to get it.

And Dr. Carson says, "Think about this: Rich Democrats are totally obsessed with global warming. We know that. And look what rich Democrats got as a result: an administration that says global warming is the No. 1 priority of the United States and the No. 1 threat to our national security. Our government now spends more than $20 billion a year on global warming programs ."

There's much more--I encourage you to read all Dr. Carson's remarks.

On August 29, 2017, Bishop Harry Jackson and a number of other black pastors and leaders held a news conference in which they addressed "racism."

Pastor after pastor stated that racial division can only be healed by the saving, redeeming power of God through His Son Jesus Christ.

I have chosen to link the story from the press conference published by VOX rather than a more conservative news organization because VOX represents a far Left racist, uninformed point of view regarding biblical beliefs and racism---the topic of the press conference.

VOX attempts to trash the pastors as mere "hacks" for Trump, but even in the darkness of their own racism and anti-Christian bias, the Truth shines brightly.

In their attempts to discredit these conservative, biblical black leaders over their preferred black leaders, VOX says, "The press conference marked a curious conservative strategy: one that seemed designed to hold onto Trump's evangelical base by treating racism as, essentially, symptomatic of a lack of sufficient Christian faith."

They defined the pastor's faith as one that believes that "one can be cured not through dialogue or through societal change but through prayer..." calling such a belief "a utopian view of the world."
We call it a "Christian worldview"---one they clearly do not understand.

I repeat, Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world, red and yellow, black and white they are precious in His sight."

Those who truly follow Jesus loves them as well. And their parents.

Slave trader John Newton discovered that truth and expressed his transformation by writing the song "Amazing Grace," knowing Christ personally always changes one's tune.
