Blacks and whites see this world in black and white. What I am trying to do is remind everybody that there are so many more hues in between that we need to take in. Race isn’t the only thing wrong in America. In fact, the bigger problem is that no matter what we argue over black and white, the only color that really matters is green.
Serving a merciless god
We are a very religious nation, and our god is the Almighty Dollar Bill. Regardless of race, we all do whatever our god demands. We feel like we can become closer to our god by making more money, like slaves trying to work harder to become a master.
And even if a few of us do succeed, we are merely masters of the same system, still serving the same demanding god. We neglect our family to please our god. We are forced to make personal sacrifices for our god. When we imprinted In God We Trust on our money, we know we are not referring to the God of Abraham. We serve a god that doesn’t save even save souls. It only demands constant worship and sacrifice. Constantly.
