Hi Nithin. I agree with you that the word of God IS, not can, used by brothers & sisters to oppress fellow siblings right now. As it is often spoken but rarely practiced, we are doomed to repeat history if we do not learn from it. I say to that quote: When did we ever finish one cycle of ignorance, bigotry, fear, hate, etc. It has not only infected America but globally as we heat up as I write. As Jesus said, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” We all have to pay for our crimes whether as nations or people. If we do not use history as a remembrance of our beastly nature, our collective human stain, evil, etc. then change is a cheaply forgotten word in whatever century. It is the perceptions of the down-trodden that have changed through history. The screwed remain the screwed; we only smile in deference now because AT&T has a sale. George Stinney Jr. knew he was screwed from the moment he was born 76 years ago. Come on now, he was black and the kids were girls and white; does it matter the age or time? The color of the oppressed does not matter to the oppressed while we huddle together through the ages. It matters to those who wield power who refuse to repeat history and give us a break; something the oppressed forget and become divided again and again. Sound familiar to our state right now? Somehow we have bought into the American advertisement even though the disadvantaged still remain disadvantaged and below the poverty line, bullied, electrocuted, detained and, of course, wrongly accused. Without the accusor, there is no accused, but judges require an expensive degree which George Junior could scarcely afford. See? It doesn’t matter what age. Look out your windows. Do we now buy into the faith that we can all be superstars like the powerful and beautiful always R? How did we let this virus land upon us multicolored and beautiful children? What a lot of bird sh*t Twittering on our cell-phones like an addiction. Get me back at least to the 70’s when the world was a big town, where evil was evil like in War Games; not so with the internet now in her thirties. What a whore as St. John would say. Bullying is on the rise as we become one small town. Artists hate small towns. There are no hidden gems anymore like George Junior infecting the good citizens and young girls at whatever time. The bullies got that overgrown ape again and again. Rinse and repeat, yo.
Yes, it is ironic and merciful that innocent, black & beautiful George left this planet sitting on God's Bible placed by a white man not realizing the sh*t that would stain His Word after the 8-minute shock to erase him from the 3rd planet from the Son. Jesus asked who is greater than the kingdom of heaven? Apparently, it is George's lovely peaches fried to perfection. Here is the rest of Jesus’ Word which has been ignored for over 2 millennia, but not by all faithful, not good, not righteous, not penitent, just good and faithful Georges throughout time:
"He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.”
I’m still waiting for humans to realize the kingdom of heaven is always in the Now, in the Love, in the belly of God whatever your God-dam* smartphones say. We are a bunch of ignorant, ungracious bacteria in the cecum of God. I’m fine with that. I hope you are too and find peace. Peace be with you. May the love of God fill all our ignorance and fear whether we are George Stinney Jr., George Floyd Jr. because we are all simply George..
