Black responsibility and government intervention

Lo, and behold!

The Wilmington StarNews Editorial Board has given some space to a token black conservative on the OP/ED page. But I doubt that they will accept the truth he tells—we’ll never know.

Derryck Green writes under the headline “Black clergy vs. big government.” Finally, a black leader with the wisdom and courage to stand honestly against black race-hustlers and their white liberal supporters with the truth— appropriately on MLK Day (but not online).

For years, at this site, I’ve been writing about the black cultural problem with similar ideas that Mr. Green has discussed and proposed—never to be published by the SN Editorial Board. (Links below)

Green’s opening paragraphs tell that black leaders try to “persuade Democrats to take black concerns seriously.” They perpetuate “the habit of outsourcing black (peoples’) responsibility.” Further they reinforce their “preoccupation with—and dependence on— government to find solutions to black adversity.”

But, writes Mr. Green, “black leaders are wrong to plead with politicians to resolve black moral dysfunction that can and must be principally challenged by local churches in their respective communities.”

Negro Americans have a powerful advantage in our increasingly meaningless secular society—they have a strong Christian history cultured from their rural Southern heritage. Southern black folks dressed respectfully well, flock to church with their children on Sundays here in the South.

It’s a sight to behold; and encouraging. It indicates to me they have a moral base to their lives that could sustain them without relying on government intervention.

Green notes that black church leaders are well positioned to counter the racial eugenicists supported by Hillary Clinton and Democrats “religiously devoted to abortion”—because it is a “moral problem.”

The problem and solution to reducing high numbers of black baby abortions (38 percent from 13 percent of the population), according to Green, “comes down to moral redemption and black responsibility.” That starts with local church leaders redeeming theologies of life that flatly denounce sexually destructive behaviors, such as killing babies as a birth control measure.

The same, says Green, applies to the “calamity” of black criminality—effective policing and sentencing are needed.

Black church people “must reject the tradition of silence when it comes to condemning or excusing black criminality…Black churches must also strongly repudiate the cultural disorders and criminal stereotypes that draw the eye and ire of law enforcement.”

“Black churches should re-emphasize a Christian temperament that includes family stability, fatherhood, self-respect, personal responsibility, and the love of neighbor to lessen black criminality and tension-filled police responses.”

Black churches, writes Mr. Green, must use their resources to change lives and overcome the “negative aspects of black culture.”

Finally, Green advises, black people must stop “preserving the posture of weakness and helplessness, and depending on politics to save us.”

In a different way, I suggest that blacks refuse to allow false leaders and white liberals to portray them as victims; that keep them dependent.
