Church Killings

The church shootings in Charleston, South Carolina this week have struck a chord in my heart that has me deeply hurt. These people simply were murdered because some young 21 year old kid was upset with blacks taking over the world according to his roommate. What kind of a reason is that for murdering people in cold blood?

Martin Luther King marched for equal rights for blacks and although race relations have changed, we still are in a world where one race thinks that they are better than another. We are all human and we all have a right to live on this earth. This young white boy should have realized that his ancestors should have been murdered when they came into a country that was being stolen from the ones that lived here to begin with- The Indians. His race had taken land from them.

Race issues are not issues that we as educated humans should be fighting over. The recent police shootings that are happening with white officers and blacks should not be racially motivated killings. I realize that in areas near us, there are many crimes committed by blacks, but there are also crimes committed by whites, Hispanics and other races. Is it not time for all of us to step back and look at what we are doing to ourselves? We are all human beings. Let's act like it!

To the young people in the world, look at the history of our country and realize that race issues have been dealt with and learn from the mistake that others have made in the past. It is time to accept that everyone has a right to live in this world. It seems that we are more accepting of those in society that are doing evil than we are of those of a different race that are contributing to society as functioning and outstanding members of society. What is wrong with this? Ask yourself that question and truly think about your answer?

Mass killings are becoming more and more common in society and it is time to put a stop to it! It is time to learn to be more accepting of others and realize that we need to be kind and understanding. Help someone today instead of hurting them! Stop taking mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and loved ones from their families just because you have a problem with their heritage!

I dont believe it has become more common. Just the media airs a lot more of it to get news ratings. But you are right, we need to drop this crab of such and such american. We are all Americans and that should be the end of it. Not african american, white american, hispanic american, those terms seperate everyone

You summed it up very well. People need to be accepting of those around us who look different. We are all God's children. Jesus died on the cross and rose again for ALL people. We are all precious in his sight.

I agree with you and have written about this same issue myself. I am white and my husband is from Japan, and we have experienced a bit of prejudice here and there (fortunately not too much). His race had nothing to do with why I married him--he was simply the best guy I ever met! I wish people would have more friends from other countries, cultures, sexual orientations, everything--then people would come to the shocking realization that everybody is exactly the SAME in what we want--love, peace, health, and happiness.

Very true. It amazes me that as a society we seem to accept people being transgender before we accept someone of color.

Very true and I am sure that we will find many races in heaven. I believe that as a society we have too many issues with others that we really need to overlook and be more accepting of.

You could be right about the media. Maybe we have never truly been integrated as Americans but we just did not realize it.

Yes, he certainly had some issues that no one truly knows about. I just pray that he doesn't get off easy due to a "mental illness" that was never discovered in his younger years.
