Dr. Martin Luther King would be very disappointed about the latest riots in Milwaukee.
We’re going back in understanding and helping each other. Who are the rioters and what do they want?
The dear Lord must’ve known why he made blacks black and whites white. Underneath the skin we’re all the same. I’ve been called “whitey” while I am. So what? If you want to be respected, respect the law, the police and yourselves. Is that so difficult? Every life counts.
How can our problems be solved? Education in our schools has to be improved. Go to school, stay away from drugs and select good friends. Nobody is entitled to live on other people’s hard-earned money.
People have forgotten that black slaves were brought to the South by their own slave traders and sold. This was wrong. Nobody should be a slave.
Even though many blacks are on welfare, food stamps, and out of jobs, they’re better off living in America than Africa.
I’ve had many contacts with blacks. The older ones love the Lord and are very nice.
I’m proud of any black person who works hard, has a good job, has an upper position and there are quite a few. Example: President Obama, Dr. Ben Carson and the list goes on.
If we had martial arts training in schools, the troublemakers would turn into very good students and be examples for others.
We’re all God’s children. He sees and hears everything. Sooner or later we’ll all be in front of him and have to account for our actions.
Here’s my second big issue.
As a child in Germany, I read books about cowboys, soldiers and Indians in the wild West. They were written by a German author, Karl May. He’d never been to America but could he write about them. I was fascinated. The stories made a big impression on me. Since then, I’ve always felt connected to the Indians.
I sponsor two Indian schools in South Dakota and feel loved by the children. I’ve read about the Trail of Tears.
The American government was heartless and wrong for driving the Indians from their lands.
My point: Are they rioting? Are they damaging and looting? Are they shouting, “Try the pigs and beat up whites?”
Let’s get some things straight and worked out. It can be done and has to happen. Otherwise, America will destroy itself from within.
