‘I Feel the Presence of The Lord’  

"I Feel The Presence of The Lord" is a personal collection of devotions intended to encourage the reader to seek and see the Lord in every aspect of their life.
The enemy of our souls would have us subscribe to the mentality of being endlessly busy, and therefore it being excusable to relegate God to a Sunday morning church service, if that. Thus, many in our churches today are powerless Christians and/or Christians in whom faith and fellowship with God is sorely wanting.
I Feel The Presence of The Lord is not just a book to be read as part of our daily devotions. It is a collection of thoughts and instructions to inspire the reader to meditate upon the Lord and His Word.

How I Respond To Bigoted Black People

February 26, 2019

It’s no secret that when many blacks are not blaming/accusing whites of being racists and having a mythical privilege, they are attacking persons such as myself because we refuse to wallow in self-induced despair compounded by bad decisions.

Following are letters from two individuals who mistakenly thought they could do a stealth drive-by attack and get away with it. Invariably when I expose the majestic ignorance their kind takes pride basking in, they become incensed and proceed to calling me names.

I explain that name-calling is the debate form of those who have no argument and fools.

I share these to encourage people to not fear being called names and threatened because you dare speak the truth. Satan and his minions depend upon people being afraid to speak out due to fear; when in fact the universal refusal to suffer skin-color absorbed mongrels who believe themselves to be intelligent, is what is needed.

The following is an unsolicited drive-by attack by an Evelyn F. McClain. I have included her email as received and unedited.

Should we eliminate Black History month because “…they have shed all pretense of morality?” (Your use of the pronoun “they” is odd, since you’re Black.) You blame the PTSD that has befallen Blacks since 1865 on Blacks. What part do slavery, lynching, segregation, and a biased criminal justice system play in bending the mind and spirit of a people who are forever judged by skin color rather than character? How can you ignore that some Whites look at you, judge you immoral because you are Black, and give no regard to your upbringing, morals, spirituality, patriotism, status, or education?

Blacks have not “…evolved into a generational zeitgeist of government dependency and contempt for White people.” You may believe that because the corporate media have fed us that story-line for decades. (Remember Reagan’s ‘Welfare Queens’ slur?) What data confirms that more Blacks rely on government than Whites? I think even if they feel it, most Blacks fear showing contempt, and I believe the people most dependent on government are White.

Your biography indicates you are a former minister and Christian. Have you forgotten that man looks on the outside while God looks at the heart? What does your contempt-filled diatribe on Blacks say about your heart?

P.S. Considering that “RPC advocates for a colorblind society” I am surprised to find of the articles advertised on your primary page, 50% of them discuss color (Blacks).

Evelyn…My friend your argument is a hollow attempt at equipoise pursuant to causal factors for bad behavior and even worse decision making. Yes, I employ the pronoun “they,” to subscribe to any other would suggest that I practice the revulsion for modernity and propriety that they do and apparently as you do also.

Your submission of PTSD born out of slavery as a causal factor for immorality and bad decisions is opprobrious. It is a fallacious construct that has zero factual support. With all due respect, I find you akin to Icarus and destined to the same fate. Further, I am not subject to your low self-opinion and inculcated lack of self-esteem.

It is specifically because you have a low opinion of yourself that you inject the bromide of how white people look at me. Tangential to that, I do not spend a moment of my time concerned with how someone may view me and that includes you. My life is my own; my behavior is not predicated upon nor influenced by how I perceive I may be viewed. To suggest such ignorance is a transpicuous display of low self-esteem.

I am a Christian and I stand on the Word of God in truth and fact, something that obviously escapes you. Your thinly veiled feigned insult is a pernicious form of Munchausen syndrome by proxy and I will suffer none of it. You have chosen to envelop yourself in a plexus of ignorance and lies because you have elected to eschew reality.

I stand by my comments without apology. I have afforded you the courtesy of a reply, just as I do with every person who writes me. I am sure you will view my remarks as contumelious and I would expect nothing less from you and your kind. I have neither time nor interest in suffering illegitimate reasoning.

In closing I leave you with the following facts taken from my nationally syndicated op-ed “Removing Statutes Won’t End Destructive Behavior of Blacks,” September 11, 2017. They are inescapable truths that you apparently have elected to ignore and/or deny all responsibility for.

The facts are that blacks have neither the interest nor apparently the understanding regarding how to address the elephant in the center of their demographic. Blacks are filled with raw hatred for a piece concrete memorializing a historic event or figure, but they ignore the following:
• Over an 86-year period spanning from 1882 to 1968 there were 3,446 blacks lynched in the America.
• Today approximately 1,876 black babies are murdered by abortion every day. That means that the total number of blacks lynched covering an 86-year period is surpassed approximately every 45 hours.
• Between 7,000 and 8,000 blacks are murdered by other blacks annually.
• Between 1976 and 2011, 279,384 blacks were killed, with 262,621 of them being killed by another black person. That means 94 percent of all blacks murdered were murdered by another black person.
• Blacks make up 13 percent of the population and yet they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims.
• Nationally the black homicide victimization rate is 6 times that of whites and in some cities it is 22 times higher than that of whites.
• As Dr. Walter E. Williams has noted: The aggregate number of black soldiers killed in military combat in the Korean War, The Vietnam War, and every war since 1980 totals 18,515. That means black males are safer on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan than they are on the streets of Philadelphia PA, Camden N.J., Oakland CA, New York NY, Chicago IL, or any other streets one wants to include.
• 17.3 million black children have been murdered by their mothers before they were born by the barbaric practice of abortion, since the allowance and encouragement of child killing was legalized.
• Abortion is responsible for reducing the aggregate black population in America by 30 percent in just 44 years.
• 36.3 percent of all abortions are black women murdering their children.
• It is a stunning reality that at the time the Civil Rights Act was signed, 87 percent of black homes were married two-parent households. Forty percent of blacks were business owners. Today, blacks lead the known world in every quantifiable negative statistic regarding family and personal responsibility. God’s grace to you.

Then there was the following, which was sent to me February 21, 2019, in a private Facebook message by someone claiming to be a Benjamin Gear. I share it unedited as received. He writes: And you call yourself an African American. An African American is somebody who has gone through a lot and can honestly say that that have lived the life and has gone to hell and back to make it so that together that one race that you aren’t familiar with known as blacks can come together as one nation, one body, one voice and these are added with one word UNITY, Means oneness and if you have done nothing whatsoever to be apart of the injustice where black people are being racially profiled then that makes you no better than any measly person who can sit down behind their desk and type up some information that you copied and then you are seeking people race doesn’t matter to buy your book if you ask me you may as well just say are against the African American team and you are more of a double minded person one minute you were on the side of equality and now you are saying the total opposite until you have experienced what those people on Dr. Phil have said then you probably should go back to school and get a double portion of education because what you said on the show was irrelevant and needless to say it was pointless to have you on the show.

My response:
My friend, you err in that I have never identified myself as an “African-American.” I identify myself as an American. I have less than no interest in the salami-sandwich you reference as “one nation, one body” blah-blah-blah. Did you read that in a book, hear it on the radio, or come up with it on your own?

That said, even for those who inaccurately subscribe to your assignation, the definition of that you have created and attempt to apply bespeaks of someone who is unschooled and unlearned. Specific to same, your inability to convey cogent, well-articulated thoughts portrays you as that which you obviously fail to recognize that you are.

My friend, I do not suffer from the fallacious reasoning that my cosmological view and self-worth is based upon the color of my skin. I stand by the comments I made as a guest on the Dr. Phil Show.

I’m not looking for your approval. It means less than nothing that you disagree with me and that you were apparently offended by my words.

You are a poor lost soul adrift in the sea of inferiority, inculcated ignorance and self-induced antipathy.

I would hope for the sake of your own well-being and your family that at some point you will realize the tragedy that is you and your mindset. I am thankful that I was not raised to view my self-worth based upon the color of my skin. I am thankful that I was not raised to believe that white people are doing their best to prevent me from succeeding at whatever I pursue.

You my friend are dishonest and deceitful, because you smile in the face of white people and think ill behind their backs. It is you who are the bigot and I for one refuse to abide such commonality.

In closing I remind you that the first rule of insults is to make sure the person you are attempting to insult remotely respects and/or cares what you think or say. I neither care what you think nor what you have to say.

I have given you the courtesy of a response as I do all who write me. I would hope that perhaps the day will come when your eyes will be opened to the waste of life that is you and that you will embrace modernity and factual truth. God’s grace to you.

I then banned him from my Facebook page, which means he will have to reveal himself on my website if he decides to resort to name-calling.

These letters are two of the nice ones I receive. You will note that I did not change my position, I did not attempt to appease them nor did I apologize. I am confident in who I am and what I am. My self-worth and self-esteem is not based upon a crayon color anymore than any other group should feel ashamed because they were rewarded for hard work.

I am truly free; it is those such as these two people who are the prisoners. It is they who are slaves to commonality, resentment and defeatist reasoning. That is their choice, but it is not a choice that you and I have to abide. I encourage you to stand up and reject such self-limiting rationale.

Take action and share this!
