Do Black Voters Really Want This?

Do Black Voters Really Want This?

Recently we read, with interest, an article from the local newspaper entitled “What do black voters want?” The author, Kiki Monifa, a black lesbian (homosexual or sodomite) took on herself to speak for other blacks but only revealed her gross immorality toward the end of the article. (See “What do black voters want?” Fort Worth Star-Telegram, September 4, 2019.)

I am not black and I’m not a voter of the kind that she imagines, but I doubt that black Christians would be characterized in the way that she described. We must remember that Christians (true and genuine ones) think, speak, and do things much differently from others in society. “Black Futures Lab,” apparently is “a national advocacy group devoted to helping build black political power.” This pro-black group conducted a census of more than 30,000 along with “30 black-led grassroots organizations.”

This organization joined another group, “PushBlack and Color of Change,” included the homeless, prisoners, lesbian and all other sorts of sexually immoral people, immigrants (perhaps illegal as well), mixed-raced people, along with black Republicans and conservatives. We assume that the grouping was especially weighted toward liberal Democrats.

According to the census of black voters, “90% of respondents, was low wages. There was strong support (83%) for raising the minimum wages to $15 an hour.” We can see that it would be advantageous for people of all kinds to earn a decent living—even $15 an hour.  When I worked, I earned about half this amount, but I would agree that this is very, very difficult and it must be a challenge for blacks or anyone else to earn little. Yet we don’t think it wise to force employers to pay more. The employee should make himself valuable to the business owner and the manager may want to hire and maintain employees without coercing him to do so.

It is interesting that many of the respondents were socialistic in their comments and choices. They wanted to make college “affordable for any person who wants to attend.” And who would pay for this? They wanted to “provide health care for all Americans.” And, again, who would pay for this additional expense? They also said that “government should provide adequate housing.” Yes, “adequate housing” would be good—but who would pay for this? The great majority of the respondents said that “excessive use of force by police” is a problem in the “black community.” But if a certain portion of the people are lawless, can we not see that force—much force—is needed? We do recall that something like one-third or more of the prison population consists of those who are black. If this happens to have occurred because of their ethnic background, then this is a fault. On the other hand, if this reflects more criminal elements then it should be enforced—and enforced strongly.

One thing that is good for us to remember is that the author of this editorial—Kiki Monifa—from Oakland, California (known for its liberal positions, by the way), is a self-confessed sodomite or lesbian. Could it be that her own sexual relationship and orientation contributed to her own perspective in this article?

However we see this, let us remember that homosexuality is a gross perversion of the sexuality that God gave to us in the beginning (Genesis 1:26-27) and the Lord Jesus promoted (Matthew 19:4-8). He wants us to use this “gift” of sexuality in a responsible way. And He wants us to express our own relationship to the government and to other citizens in an honorable, rightful, and God-glorifying way.

We have little doubt that blacks and other groups of people have legitimate concerns. We can do nothing about the color of our skin, and we may be able to do little about our education, our mentality, or our health, but we can do something about honoring God in the way He made us and how we use our possessions and abilities in life. Let us remember this.

Kiki, who admits that she is involved in gross immorality, needs to remember that some things we cannot change—such as our ethnic background, the color of our skin, and the attractiveness of our body (or lack thereof). But God does hold us accountable for sin (such as homosexuality), something that we have the power to change by God’s power and grace. May God help us to see things accurately, without prejudice!
