If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Chronicles II 7:14
I have been blessed to travel extensively around the country on business. This has afforded me an opportunity to view the local news programs in many of the major citites of this country. No matter which city you are in, the features on crime, the welfare system, those living in the most unattractive areas of the city are virtually all African American.
This is not a recent trend, it has been taking place over the last 30 years or more. Why are there a disproportionate number of African Americans involved in such activities? While the answer to this question is complex, I submit that the only way to get back to where we need to be is to turn to God.
Remember, our ancestors prayed for freedom during salvery and our their prayers were answered. If God heard our prayers then, He will hear them now. Let's all pray for our people.
Let me hear why you think we have a disproportionate number of our people reflected in a negative manner on the evening news.
