There are dozens of separatists groups across America. American Freedom Party is a white nationalists group that wants America and its politics restored back to white rule. Violent Aryans hate everybody, especially Jews. And the Ku Klux Klan hide behind Christianity to justify their white supremacist beliefs and obnoxious antics. There are also black separatists groups such as the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party. Even though both were formed as a means to fight white oppression, the inescapable argument is that they, too, qualify as separatists by its definition.
Those groups and others like them exist under the guises of ethnic loyalty but somehow they have missed Genesis 1:27NIV “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Also, in 1 John 2:9NIV, it states, “Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness.”
Putting aside their extreme left and right wing views, does ethnic loyalty in its real sense border on racism? For instance, if a consumer patronizes a business that lines up with their ethnicity, is that ethnic loyalty or suppressed racism? A contrary example would be, if a black defense attorney takes on a racist white client who has wronged a black man, as is the case in A Cry Among Men, is he a race traitor with no ethnic loyalty or is he simply doing his job?
Perry Langston is about to find out what it’s like to play for the other side.
Scott had been in Bergen County police lockup for better than an hour. He sat inactive in the interview room which was a far cry better than images depicted in movies; it was clean, well lit and didn’t have the cliché two way glass. All third party viewing was done via a CCTV feed to a monitor in the station room. The curdled look on his face showed he was officially a disgruntled mess. A tall finely dressed black man, about fifty-three years old or so, bald, pop-eyes and a gap between his two front teeth broke the placidity of the room and made his entrance through the door which had hinges that faintly cried for oil. Perry Langston was the gentleman’s name.
He closed the door, stepped to Scott and extended his hand. “I’m Perry Langston, your attorney. I’ve been retained by your father to handle your matter.”
Scott didn’t speak and was disinclined to reciprocate Perry’s cordial gesture of introduction leaving Perry to withdraw his hand.
Following 9/11, evil brought us together. But why did we so quickly revert back to letting evil [racism] tear us apart? If this topic applies to you, please allow God to cleanse your heart.
