This Black Preacher Reveals What ACTUALLY Happened In Charlottesville

The eyes of the entire nation have been on Charlottesville Virginia this weekend, as their streets have been the venue for a race war extravaganza. No matter what extreme you subscribe to, you probably could have found some friends willing to take you in and hand you a sign in Charlottesville.

Moderates or generally anyone who prefers to use their words, on the other hand, weren’t really welcome at the demonstrations. While we can appreciate that racism is bad and equality is good, we don’t all agree, however, about where all racism emanates. Yes, there are plenty of white people that are racist, but there are also black and brown people that are racist as well. This is the land of opportunity, and some seem to have taken their opportunity to yell and scream and generally be the squeaky wheel whenever they feel slighted in any way.

One Virginia preacher with a heart to solve the racial tensions around him spoke out about these riots, both on Twitter and in a Facebook live video. E.W. Jackson’s perspective is one that many of us share and it’s good to see it get some air time.

This is one African American who’s not buying into the hype that the deck is stacked against him and he’s ready to call out those who think that they have to play the victim.

Via Breitbart News:

The president of an organization that reaches across racial and cultural lines to bring Americans together around the nation’s foundational principles says he condemns both the “white right group” and the “counter-protesters” who participated in the events in Charlottesville Saturday.

Bishop E.W. Jackson, the president of S.T.A.N.D., said in a Facebook video Saturday during the events in Charlottesville, “Both sides of this want us divided racially.”

“They want to turn everything into a racial issue. They believe that somehow … our country really is black against white – we’re not that at all. We are a nation founded on principle – not race.

Both [sides] are more interested in racial division than they are in us becoming one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.”

This fear tactic is one that might be working to manipulate people, but Jackson’s point is that neither side is working in the interest of the American way. The people who want to be mean and nasty are finding a way, at the expense of peace and tranquility, and they will always find a way if we let them. They just happen to have found the flag that they want to represent it.

The second issue that he addresses is that the problem people are so upset about is one that we’ve gotten past years ago. It has nothing to do with what we’re facing today; gangs, drugs, education, economy or (more recently) North Korea. Those are the issues that anyone and everyone who wants to make a political difference should be interested in addressing, not a decade’s old war on racism that is essentially non-existent aside from fringe activists.

A squeaky wheel will always find a reason to squeak. The only thing we can do is combat it with the facts, and the facts are that the riots on Charlottesville are only going to be productive for those who feed off of dysfunction and division. Don’t give it attention and feed that beast any more than you have to.
