Alabama still has the nation’s longest constitution. The change will be that now it will be minus racist language. There are small victories. On Election Day, the state ballot measure passed to change the wording in the nation’s longest state constitution to remove racist language. The state constitution has been in place since 1901.

It’s probably been 20 years or more since I voted in a place where my vote had any significance at all. I’ve lived in very blue areas and very red areas. It doesn’t matter which “side” I might “be one” (which is not even a question in my life any more), I was in aContinue reading “Elections”

Deep rooted problems of our nation

The theory was conceived in the early 2010s by Renaud Camus, a French author who has written about fears of a white genocide, arguing that immigrants who give birthContinue reading “Deep rooted problems of our nation”
We have to get over ourselves. This sin is deep and we lack repentance. God help us! This chart shows the overwhelming blindness to what “America” is among whites.
The grief in our culture
The tragedy of Buffalo, NY this weekend where a young man believed the propaganda of white nationalists, too matters “into his own hands,” and walked into a store with the intention of killing black people. It is crushing. LORD! How long?
Over and over…
Conspiracy theories… Racism… Mass murder… Lord, how long? More HERE.
