BATTLE OF THE BOX CHECKERS, PART 1
Let me get this out of the way first. There WAS a time when Black women and Black men used to work together for the benefit of the race. Over the last few years, there are some liberal Black women (and other liberal women of color) who have forgotten from whence they came.
From the outset, let me also say that I have nothing against marrying across the color line. The hope is that—for a Christian—they marry IN the faith and are NOT ‘unequally yoked’ with an unbeliever. However, as I take the high road into my subject, these instances stand out:
*We currently have a liberal Black female Vice President who is married to a white man who has done little for her people—but a lot for illegals flooding into our communities, taking jobs and resources away from Black folk in urban areas. BTW…she has biracial children.
*Last year, the Mayor of Boston—who is a liberal Asian woman married to a white man—shut white people out of the annual Christmas party, making the party ‘only’ for people of color. It is bad enough when racism is practiced by anyone—but by a woman of color against others is not cool at all. BTW…she has biracial children.
*Then, we have a liberal Black female US Supreme Court Justice married to a white man, who, during her confirmation hearings in the Senate could not provide an accurate answer as to what a woman was. BTW…she also has biracial children.
Democrats have used these—and other—box checkers in their quest to maintain power and keep the votes of people of color ‘locked up’ by having women of color go against their upbringings and people to get a ‘taste’ of political and economic power. One of the ‘new’ ways the Democrats (liberals) have done this is by Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, or D.E.I. for short. This is meant to pick up where ‘reverse racism’ left off by making people of color ‘special’ without checking the boxes of competence, education, morality, or tradition. It ‘rewards’ the loyal ‘foot soldiers’ of liberalism/socialism/communism.
No ‘struggle’ in the new liberal utopia. Just fit the boxes and you’re in!
D.E.I. is little more than the new racism. This has become more and more clear over the past few years as competence and ability have been tossed out the window over the illusion of ‘helping’ Black people and other people of color by discriminating against us using box checking. Box checking merely means that a person must meet a pre-selected list of flexible, politically correct abnormal attributes to make the incompetent acceptable to society because they ‘meet’ some PC standard. Further, with two generations of Black folk removed from the Civil Rights days and (blissfully) ignorant of our history, many are willing members of the social media reservations as they have become hooked on illusions and lies.
The box checking/D.E.I. programming continues.
Some corporations and universities have disbanded and fired their D.E.I. coordinators. Many of these coordinators that have been ‘let go’ have been Black women. I have yet to see a Black man heading a D.E.I. department—although, it is possible.
Recently, a D.E.I. coordinator for a well-known university let the mask slip and reveal what groups and people D.E.I. has been weaponized against. Here’s the list:
*Middle Class or those who own things (houses, cars, property)
*Fiscally Responsible People
*English Speaking People
Of course, the D.E.I. officer—a Black woman—had to apologize once this list was made public and hit the airwaves. She hasn’t been fired—yet—but the suspicions of how D.E.I. has been infused with socialism, racism, and hatred for normal people AND persecution of Christians is not a shock. In the last days, perilous times will come (II Timothy 3:1 KJV paraphrase). Thus, we are not only seeing increased persecution of Jews, but we are also seeing increased persecution of Christians—which Jesus Christ and the KJV Bible warned us about centuries ago. This was the hallmark; one of the true signs that the Rapture of the church and His second coming was nearby.
More to come.
