Black People : Freedom Rider: Saving the White Man

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

It’s the kind of story that brings tears to Middle America’s eyes: selfless Black person puts life on line for undeserving white. In a white man’s world, saving a redneck from a beating qualifies a Black person for sainthood

Sherryl Underwood, is that YOU?

Back on topic, sorta...
I applaud this young sisters action, to me it says much about her character,
Seeing past what would be a knee jerk response from many of ' yeah! Kill the dam* racist a**hole, and hang him high!'

I have heard a saying that goes something like ' through suffering comes sympathy' (probably messed it up)
but perhaps too, this young woman feels that anyone who judges blindly , hates someone and have lived their entire lives hateful towards another because of what they were taught, and have discriminated against even hurt or killed because of it,...are suffering a crippling mental illness themselves and to which makes this sister sympathetic...

Just a thought, I don't know but smack in the middle of the tension of the whole thing I cant say I would have done the same. I'm not quite there yet...
 
I think he was talking about "white devil" as Malcolm X use to say.

Thank you Kamau47, for helping me to understand what in world James was talking about! Because nowhere in any post that I've written, have I referred to the devil as "being human".

And YES!!! Before Malcolm Shabazz's spiritual awakening ... it was "he" who coined that phrase.

Blessings
