Our Conjoined Responsibility Pt II
“sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners”
so called white and black Americans
[See Conjoined Responsibility I]
The Concept-Idea of the Creator
“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” and “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Being conjoined by Nature’s GOD, our paternal twin relationship shares the same “vital organs” thereby making each of us responsible for the other, in that, if one is sick, the other is also.
If one perishes, so does the other. If one lives in the secure “blessings of liberty”, the other must also, lest death of the one prevails throughout the whole conjoined body politic and both are dead.
Hence, we either live together as brothers or perish together as enemies. Either way, we are destined to be together. This is literally, the truest essence of “Yes, I am my brothers’ keeper…and not his accuser.”
Note: “accuser” – The Bible states that “the great dragon, called the Devil and Satan” is the accusor of the brethren, “…for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” [Revelation 12:10] and “And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan tanding at his right hand to resist him.” [Zechariah 3:1]
It is to be noted that neither twin sought to be with the other, but rather were divinely and circumstantially forged into the geo-political and spiritual relationship that is the heart and soul of the American Dream struggle, perhaps, especially for a time such this “dark hour”.
The Rowboat Factor
Until now, it has been easier to cast all blame and accusation for the inherited wound upon the Americans of willing immigration heritage, i.e., white lives.
However, in order for the race wound to be healed of GOD, it is imperative that the role of the Americans of chattel slavery , i.e., black lives be included in the matter as well, of which, until now it has not.
Such one-sided responsibility in a matter whereby two are actually responsible is akin to rowing a boat with a single oar causing it to progress in circles instead forward to its destination. To expect such work to arrive its passengers to their desired destiny is pure insanity.
Since July 2-4, 1776, the immigration heritage Americans have been the only one rowing the boat, while those of chattel slavery sat as passengers, even demanding more work from them.
Instead of rowing the boat of State in partnership with white lives, black lives from the the chattel slaves.
After all these years, decades and generations, apparently the matter is not yet resolved.
Therefore, it is time that We the People insist on the “sons of former slave”-Jim Crow survivors, take beginning, especially since the 1960’s have instead been standing in the position of the great accuser in blaming white lives for slavery, one sided racism, etc, and making upon them demands of change, while excusing themselves as totally innocent victims in the matter.
Perhaps, this absence of mutual responsility could the very cause as to why the matter of black lives continues to rage on with the threat of potential dissolving the nation of immigrants from which both sides of the twin will perish with the republican state.
This one sided effort is precisely why that racial incident after racial incident followed by the subsequent, reoccurring of so called national discussions on race in America, have not achieved the desired destiny of American peoples, but in fact, seem to be going insanely backwards by the drifting, pulling currents of social-civic discontent.
However, if and when the black lives assume our role of rowing the boat of state in rythmic, harmonious, tandem partnership with whites brethren, no longer being their accuser, perhaps, GOD will mercifully spare us as we “sit together”, shall soon step foot on the dry, “promised land” America of our founding fathers hope, dream and wish.
Remember, the eve of being assassinated on April 3, 1968, in Memphis, Tennesee, the late, Rev.-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. prophesied,
“…I’ve been to the mountaintop and I just want to do GOD’s will. And HE’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. and I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people will get to the promised land…Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the LORD”
Note: “a people” – meaning, We the People, as Dr. King, Jr. prophesied 5 years earlier on August 28, 1963 in Washington, DC at the Civil Rights March and Rally, loudly proclaiming, “When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of GOD’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almight, we are free at last.”
Black Lives Responsible Accountability
Though in a double minded state, from the birth of our country as a united Union of Several sovereign states, immigrant heritage Americans have argued with themselves on this matter of chattel slavery as evidenced by the following facts;
One of the immigrants struggled against their fellows as abolitionist, operating the “underground railroad”, even waged the Unions’ greatest war with each other, and subsequently authorized 3 consecutive, Constitutional Amendments for Civil Rights, et al, with a minimal amount of help from“oar” in hand to assume responsibility for their initial, ancestral role in the creation of chattel slavery in the America.
Responsibly, “the sons of former slave owners” have demonstrated accountability and culpability by admitting the truth of their ancestral transgression against GOD by purchasing slaves from the ancient, African trade itself.
Now is the time that “the sons of former slaves” cease falsely accusing Christian and Jew of invading Africa and capturing our ancestors according to the erroneous popular, one sided belief.
In order for GOD to heal our conjoined wound, “the sons of former slaves” must embrace and confess our ancestors’ role in chattel slavery, something that has never been done.
Wrong, unjust and detrimental to ourselves as black lives as well as to them, has been the erroneous popular notion that the proverbial, “white man” beginning with the Roman Catholic empires of Portugal and Spain, followed by that of Protestant England along with other European states, via gun violence, invaded continental Africa, raiding, murdering, capturing and enslaving the various ethnic peoples thereof.
In order for our mutally, conjoined, paternal twin Union of willing immigrants and unwilling chattel slaves to be saved by GOD, black lives must now cease from being accusers of our beloved brethren whom, like us, are HIS children too, take our “oaring” responsibility in hand and embrace them.
