Designer skin — a birth right

You’re wearing designer skin. (You’re looking good, because God, Himself, designed the skin you’re in!)

For society to devalue people because of their skin, brands them with something they can’t hide and that sticks with them for life. When skin becomes a “race card,” we have no choice but to carry it all over our body.

If eye color doesn’t categorize people and make them different, then skin color doesn’t either. Let’s be consistent!

I like to think outside my skin color. Human gray matter is much better at discovering truth than human skin color is.

It’s impossible for you to be guilty of things that happened before you were born. Thus we can talk about history without guilt. If we’re unwilling to talk about injustice in history, we won’t be very open to recognizing and talking about present day injustice.

Contradiction? The ultimate insult to the American flag is to take up arms against it. Many who did that are honored as great men. In the sequel to centuries of inequality, Americans will finally celebrate the truth that we are all equal!

To believe that blacks are less moral, less intelligent, less ambitious, or less resourceful than whites is racism.

Not one African, nor even one of their descendants, deserved to be trafficked and enslaved. It was a horrific crime against humanity. Slaveholders didn’t need a vaccine microchip implant. They conspired to control people by dehumanizing their skin color.

The Declaration of Independence didn’t see color. It said, “All men are created equal,” while it was blind to the trafficking of black people. A country where the pledge to the flag says “liberty and justice for all” should welcome efforts to bring injustice to light.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
