Thirty-one {31} days to becoming one in Christ Jesus: radical racial reconciliation and reconstruction – Day 02 (slavery in America)

RRRRDear children of mine:

Please know your Mother is the fourth generation of folks, family and friends no longer enslaved to another. My Daddy was not a slave. And my Grand Daddy was a share cropper but my Great Grand Daddy was a slaved who walked freedom road to the hills of Tennessee.

Dear children of mine:

I want you to know and understand the truth about the American slavery of black folks, family and friends. I know you’ve seen movies like Roots and 12 Years a Slave and maybe you’ve even seen Amistad. 

Dear children of mine:

I want you to know the truth about the American slavery of black folks, family and friends. I want you to know this slavery which ended with The Civil War. I want you to know this slavery which ended with The Emancipation Proclamation DID NOT start because of your ethnicity, but the enslavement of folks is almost always due to the evil of economics.

Dear children of mine:

The LOVE of money leads to any day slavery in America. Modern Day Slavery is based on and in economics as well. Slavery was about the LOVE of money then and it is about the Love of money now

PBS states slavery was established in Colonial America. It happened gradually — one person at a time, one law at a time, even one colony at a time. Our forefathers were not enslaved because of their ethnicity. The root of all evil caused American slavery to grow into racial slavery. Racial slavey was the end result of an economic solution to the shortage of labor in Colonial America. 

  1. economics
  2. evil
  3. enslavement
  4. ethnicity

Racial reconciliation must end how it started. Gradually. One person at a time, one church at a time, one community at a time, one county at a time. 

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10 (KJV)
