Does Jesus Love The Black Man?
*Today’s featured author wished to remain anonymous*
Pray to our God to undo the hurt we have caused you Worship our savior and do what we tell you to. Forget your culture there is no past All of your Gods Are gone at last. Now live for our savior and hold our beliefs Don't think for yourself and bury your grief. We killed your culture and rewrote your history Banished your ancestors and made them a mystery. We told you you're loved that your suffering was in God's plan And prayer would protect you but does Jesus love the black man? It's hard to say why God's eyes went blind Through all the pain That had gone by. Maybe He doesn't care when things happen to black folk He stays asleep and can't be woke. Not until it happens to us does He open his eyes Or so we are told but it is all lies. Because if He can't love us all black white woman or man And stop all the suffering why should any of us follow His plan? Love thy neighbor our brothers and sisters That's what our book says but our beliefs are like twisters. We take our truths and throw them in the air Swirl them around and what comes back is rare. For our truths return twisted ugly and wrong The original message defiled with all its love gone. So love thy neighbor changes its meaning To love them only if their skin is white leaning. The more pure the better for the blessed skin is white Like softly fallen snow this is said to be right. At least according to our book it started with Adam and Eve Whites were the first people We are taught to believe. Maybe this is why your pain doesn't matter By those who believe your suffering is only background chatter. Many Gods came before ours was forced upon you By the white man's hand amends are long overdo. For the sins of our fathers cannot be undone The pain will live on in the hearts of everyone. But even if our savior doesn't we can individually show That love is stronger than hate this we all know. And whether or not Jesus loves the black man It matters little because we have a new plan. We don't need a book nor any God to say Who we can love or show respect to each day. We forge our own destiny and have from the start Because when God goes silent we can still open our hearts. He can ignore pain but we don't have to He can close his eyes but we all see what it is we do. Our vision clear to love we ran And to all our sisters and brothers it doesn't matter if Jesus loves the black man. When he won't we can.
