I have been assailed by a horde of white “woke” folks this week who have confidently instructed me that I clearly don’t understand, and most certainly don’t care about the victims of racial inequality in America––implying that I need to be more “woke.” This is my response to that accusation:
Abortion is the number one killer of black lives in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, abortion kills more black people than HIV, homicide, diabetes, accident, cancer, and heart disease … COMBINED.
Yes. . . Black lives DO matter – all of them. I am weary of “woke” white people telling me I don’t understand the problem. I am grieved, along with everyone else that George Floyd was killed by a white policeman and that a Rayshard Brooks was unnecessarily killed in Atlanta by a policeman. This is wrong and it needs to be addressed. However, I am most moved by a segment of the black community that BLM doesn’t seem to be concerned about and none of the “woke” white kids from the burbs are marching for. And that would be the 900 or so black babies are ripped, limb by limb out of their mother’s womb EVERY DAY is never mentioned by those marching in the streets, burning down businesses, dragging people out of their cars and beating them senseless – especially not by all those “woke” white folks.
The fact that 13% of the population is represented by almost 40% of all abortions is never mentioned by all those “woke” folks. The same language that was used to discriminate against African Americans in the past is now being used to discriminate against unborn babies. “They are not really human.” We are constantly accused of ignoring “science.” Yet, the “science” tells us that a unique, new human life begins at fertilization – and that particular “science” is almost universally denied by the “woke” generation.
The claim that the black slaves in American history were “not human” was a lie out of the pit of hell. The lie that tells a mommy that her baby in the womb is “not human” is right out of the pit of hell.
Words and phrases like “choice” or “reproductive health” are used to sanitize the gruesome reality of abortion. Attempts to present factual information often leads to accusations of “misogyny” and waging a “War on Women.” Well, there IS a war on women of color, especially African-Americans, and that war is being waged in the abortion clinics of America – every day! Further, that war was started by a racist woman whose purpose was to control the black population. She is now celebrated as a national hero and champion of women’s rights. Nobody is pulling down any Margaret Sanger statues.
Yes, I am grieved by the suffering of those who endure racial inequality, especially those beautiful, promised-filled black babies who never see the light of day. Stop branding me as insensitive to the plight of the black community while cheering on politicians who deem Planned Parenthood and the right to abortion part of the RECOVERY process.
Yes, let’s do talk about systemic racism.
The greatest example in the history of systemic racism is ABORTION. The most common and horrific assault on the black community is the systematic infanticide which is disproportionately unleashed upon women of color. Black Americans are no longer the largest minority group, and this is largely due to the systematic, even routine murder of their children. Latin Americans are now the largest minority – a community who by far, is less likely to abort their children.
The senseless murder of 900 black babies a day is proudly sanctioned by the same politicians who do news interviews as they weep about racial inequality. Every time a woman climbs up on a table in an abortion clinic a person dies and more times than not, it’s a black baby. But that’s o.k. – it’s not really human.
And I am the one who is not “woke.”
