BLM “because God made their souls to soar”

Black Lives Matter!

“Why is that?” you ask.

Because:
1…God made them, same like you and me
2….He made them to be free, same like you and me
3…He gave them minds and emotions, full of devotions

Because:
1…God likes diversity, in color and style and size
2…He likes the wise, in color and style and size
3…He gave them dreams and opposable thumbs

Because:
1…He gave them hearts and plenty of smarts
2…He made them compose food and clothes
3…He gave them dreams to think of things to do---
same like me and you

Because:
1… He gave them strengths to build and cook
just like in His Book
2…He gave them songs to ease their pain
ongs that to this day remain
3…He gave them love from Above---
as much as He gave you and me

For all these reasons and many more it should make our hearts sore — to know we have oppressed them.

Trying to hold them down…impossible because God made their souls to soar, their hearts to roar.

burn loot and murder are domestic terrorists and committed marxists.

There should be a bounty on them.

Thank you for recognizing that I'm a solid human. I agree 100%. And, yes, I will keep up the good work. Thanks for the encouragement.

Silii, I have to assume your ill-formed sentence is trying to say that it is people like me who are the oppressors because I ask the question.
Brilliant. You're a solid human. Keep up the good work.

Black lives matters is an activist group that was started by the deep state of Democrats and communists who are using this platform of race to divide our nation so that they can "swoop in" and save the day. Do your homework.
Same thing happened in Yugoslavia except the religion platform was used there.

Hey Jim, Peole like you who ask question about who is "we".
jim goodwin · November 22, 2020 at 2:24 pm
Who's the "we" who have oppressed them exactly?
