This weekend my husband took me to see the movie BlacKkKlansman. Although I didn’t know exactly what the movie was about, I was leery in my response when I told him that I’d join him. For those who don’t know me, mentally I live in a rainbow cloud in which I would like to see the world living in harmony and where people actually love and help one another. True, I know this isn’t real, but one day I hope it becomes a reality.
The movie basically was about how a Black man was able to join the KKK. Well, according to the movie, an organization. In reality, yes I know there are those who don’t like others because of minor difference like the color of ones skin. But, it just blows my mind to have actually seen how some Whites really think about those “different” than themselves. When in all actuality we are more alike than different. All humans are born of a women. We all have two ears, two eye and a nose. Unless there is a deformity that may have happened during birth, we all have two arms, as well as, two legs. All humans put our pants on one leg at a time. And all of our blood is red. So to hate or not want to be around another race due to one having more melanin boggles my mind.
In the movie the members of the organization kept saying how they are superior to others. They kept trying to reinforce how they were trying to make American great again. So many slurs and so many outlandish comments were made that were hateful and plain ignorant. And yet they called themselves followers of the Bible.
I’m so confused.
How can one say they follow the teaching of Christ and love God, yet hate the person next to them? How can one want to hurt another as oppose to help them to become a better person? What is the purpose of burning crosses? The main objective on this earth is to…LOVE!
At the end of the movie, the lead actor was told to discard all of what he discovered regarding this organization. Yes, he proved that it existed, yet no one wanted to abolish it. Is it because here in America people have rights and freedom of speech? If so, that’s a sad reason.
I know I personally can’t change the hearts of any, but I know I personally will continue to be the person that I am. I love people regardless of the pigment of their skin. Regardless of their beliefs. Regardless of their hatred towards whomever. I will continue to be kind and try to help as many people as I can along the way.
I will admit seeing these kinds of movies makes me feel some kind of way when I first encounter someone of another race. I feel this way because I know there is evil everywhere. Nowadays, people who hate don’t wear white sheets over their faces, they wear suits, uniforms, robes and even plain clothes. People who hate have everyday jobs just like me. A lot of times they even hold a office in high places and can make rules that govern the land.
Yet, I will continue to show love and just be me…
