Racist Extremism Is Wrong, No Matter Its Color

I wrote a 750-word column*, inspired by the racist garbage with which The Washington Post defiled its pages.

Then I read David French’s response. It’s worth reading the whole thing, because French “gets it.”

Black radicals are fond of saying that their opponents refuse to listen. In reality, the opposite is true. People are hearing every word. They hear it when black radicals call cop-killers “political prisoners.” They hear the sneers and jeers when police — black and white — are gunned down in the streets or injured in protests. They see buildings burn, and they smell the smoke in the air. They can read the words that sweep every single person with white skin into the absurd category of “privileged” and then expect that these same people atone for sins they did not commit.

Read it now.


*My column is for the local paper where I write weekly. Here it is published on Medium.

 

About the author

Steve Berman

The old Steve cared about money, prestige, and power. Then Christ found me. All at once things changed. But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

I spent 30 years in business. Now I write and edit. But mostly I love. I have a wife and 2 kids and a dog and we live in a little house in central Georgia.
