Did having a Black President help Black people?

Chime in! Some say it proved that anything is possible in that a race can come from recent slavery and rise to leading the nation. Some say it gave many Blacks a boost of confidence and self-esteem. Some say our black president is simply a politician with charisma who was “selected” to be a puppet and not really “elected” by the public. Some say unemployment is worse, gas prices are higher than with the former administration and black on black crime has escalated. Did having a black president, help black people? Write back. What do you say?

Are You Pro-Black or Pro-Christ?

When we truly understand the struggle of black Americans it is easy to relate to many of their causes today. When blacks fought for human rights, civil rights, marched, campaigned and protested all because of their color, it was understandable to be pro-black. Although racism, prejudice and discrimination still exist, the movements being made in the 1960′s and earlier have diminished if not altogether dissolved. Malcolm,  Dr. King and many others fought and died for the cause, now what. Blacks can’t afford to see only through the eyes of their “blackness” anymore, but through the eyes of God.

Jesus saves and the word of God is the most powerful entity that ever existed.

If the black race and the various black organizations continue to be pro-black, excluding the God factor, they will lose every battle. God is fair and just and only supports what is right in His eyes. If blacks support social and political leaders simply because they are black, and not examine them against the word of

God, they’ll certainly operate at a disadvantage. Blacks can be as color conscious as they want, but if they don’t put Christ first they will never overcome.
