Years ago I have seen on a Oprah TV show a small and serious-minded woman tell about the ideas of this society as it is. She held no punches about what is known to us all as racial hate towards people who don’t look like the people who are starting all of this non-sense of racial division.

I have for the first time in my life to hear a white person say the things she did that touched my heart to let me know she KNEW what it was that people of color was feeling. It is a hurtful thing, abusive, immoral thing that many white people who are lost in this hate and white privilege. She said all of the things many Black people have been saying and many who wanted to say about how we are treated globally.

Her name is Jane Elliott.

Just so you know, as much as 79% of the world’s population has brown eyes according to World Atlas 11/5/18.  The color break down is in more detail at this link: https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/which-eye-color-is-the-most-common-in-the-world.html.  I did not think about how many people had brown eyes until the eye test was done by Ms Elliott on the Oprah show.

 

The first time I have heard of Ms. Elliott when I was growing was awesome. It showed me that there was a White person that understood what was going on in this world to cause so much strife and division amongst the people. How she was trying to put an end to it. How she saw this as wrong. I cried. I cried because this let me know that there are is a person who thinks like I do but who does not actually have to deal with other people’s ignorance.

Matthew 22:36-40 King James Version (KJV)

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Even though Ms. Elliott is not a Pastor….she is teaching a good bibical lesson as it is written in Matthew 22:36-40.
May you all be blessed from reading and sharing this blog and the word of GOD.
