Yep, visited a "black" church in Columbus OH that had Jesse Jackson in trying to get candidacy for POTUS. We lived across the parking lot from them. Jackson said when he became president "they" would be the majority, not the minority. The folks who went to see him parked across and in peoples driveways and proudly got out and walked to the building. That's one incident.

Visited there myself, the hate and racism was thick. They also intermingled with muslims, which I never understood.

Today, if you're white and not leftist you're considered racist. I say "and not leftist" because many traitor whites that are leftists have turned on other whites - they're scared and have joined those they are afraid of.
@Deade lived in Watts & Long Beach. I lived in San Pedro and Long Beach. Racism is an equal opportunity destroyer. Fighting evil with evil can only bring about evil. My High School is 60% Latino now. I never inferred that whites are the only culprits. I'm just an old hippie that found the lord and joined the 'I found it' Movement in the late 70's after the Viet Nam war was over. So I've been the in street and on the street, served the homeless, the sick, the Ex Con, the addict and the suicidal. We held Bible studies in parks and had baptisms' at beaches and in lagoons.

Changing the subject for a moment, I feel we need to get back to public worship. General Booth, Founder of the Salvation Army said:

One is either saved or not saved so your question is non sequitur.
As well salvation in the new covenant is not related to a person's ancestors.
"provocateur" comes to mind

I am waiting for your denounciation of antifa, I have not seen it yet?
I'm not exactly sure what it is. I just know they got involved in the riot in Charlotte and they started a ruckus about Ben Shapiro speaking at Berkley. Both times they were wrong. I have listened to Shapiro and he is a bright guy who does not advocate violence and should be allowed to speak in public. That's as close as I can get without knowing more.

Folks with self image problems to both extremes' love to put others down it helps them feel better about their shortcomings and/or helps them feel superior like Nazis.
And what a perfect example of delusion of greatness that bunch was huh? Even the neo-nuts of today. Some of whom would have been shot by Hitler personally had he encountered them.
What a world. Who needs TV? We can just step outside our door , bring a comfy chair and some snacks, and be entertained if we live in or near any major city. Or backwoods,since that where the neo types like to prowl. And their dunce cap buddies too.

It is largely unenforced but it is illegal to march around in uniforms displaying hostile enemy flags and banners and The dunce cap brigades are recognized as hostile enemy terrorists by the FBI. I once made a promise to protect and defend the Constitution of the USA against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. Weather they come from Bangladesh or Mayberry.

All whites are victims of racism, whether it be the general demonetization that society does against whites or specific acts discrimination against whites in the name of "diversity", "Affirmative Action", or whatever. The Democrat party tries to win elections by stirring up racism against white males.

And, say what? You don't experience much racism from black Christians? Every black church I've ever visited was more racist than the most racist white church I ever visited. Go ahead, name you favorite black preacher that can be found on youtube and I won't have to listen very long to hear overt racism. But, good luck finding any popular white preacher on youtube saying anything racist.

You've got to quit blanket judging people based on these TV/Youtube preachers. I've worked with many black churches and they accepted my white skin and called me brother. Granted, I didn't work with many mega-churches though I did visit a couple. You have certain people that use the Christian label, but have very little else in common with Christians.

Well, it didn't take long after my alerts died down I did Google it and the first two words that caught my eyes were, 'militant' and 'anarchist', laws were made to be changed, by obeying them. Not breaking them. I stand against such stupidity.

Maybe more like a sin problem.

Hi,

Where is this located?

Acts 21:

37 And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek?

38 Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?

39 But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people.


verse 38 calls Paul that Egyptian. Either way, Ethiopian or Egyptian, Paul's skin was clearly dark to be considered African...

Yeah that's not Ethiopian. Many Egyptians were light skinned...there are documentaries showing the royalty had European type DNA and one queen was a red head. Besides, Paul corrects them and says he is from Cilicia and not an Egyptian.

So, you think Paul was a light skinned looking Egyptian?
Does it even matter?
When you read his letters, do you think if he was only white I could feel what he is saying here about this Yeshua character?

Better yet, Ezekiel and Revelation claim God on His throne has burnt brass color for skin and wooly hair.
I suppose that is of European descent.

You know the Hebrews were dark skinned slaves with mixed blood.

No, I think Paul was a Jew from Cilicia like he said.

lol, scripture doesn't say that. And yes, I know the verses you refer to you are merely misrepresenting them.

No one knows their skin tone. Some claim that, some say light skinned, some say somewhere in the middle.
