One Major Thing on My Mind is All This “Systemic Racism”

As I started listening to Governor Cuomo’s message for today, as it pertains to the “COVID-19” (Coronavirus) catastrophe, it blew my mind when I heard these words “Systemic Racism” come out of his mouth. He spoke those words in a very sincere way. Wow! Wow! Wow!

Right about now I am really in a very strange place because I am not feeling very well and I’m trying to not panic. I want you, my readers to always remember that every word that I have ever written or said has always come forth from a heart of love. “Tough Love!”

I’ve “ALWAYS” had to be tough because my husband abandoned me with six children, of which five of them were boys and now are men. I never want you to think that the words that I have written or spoken were ever coming forth from a heart of hatred. Take a look at me, tell me what you see, oh my sister, oh my brother. Do you see the pain that’s inside of me or just my color? Oh why can’t you see that inside you’re just like me for we “All” feel pain, we “All” feel hunger, we “All” cry tears. All I ever wanted for my community was for us to understand that we may be of different colors and cultures but we are “All” human beings.
We’re “All” created in the image of God.

Why have we allowed ourselves to be so separated and divided? Why? Why? Why? No, we are not clones, but we are “All” human beings, aren‘t we? I am an avid reader and some of the many books that I have been recently reading all wind up with the same conclusion in one way or another. “Why We Can’t Wait” by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; “The Slave Community” By John W. Blassingame; “Black Robes, White Justice” by New York Supreme Court Justice Bruce Wright; “There Is A River” (The Black Struggle for Freedom in America) by Vincent Harding; “Dying Of Whiteness” by Jonathan M. Metzl; “White Fragility” (Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism) by Robin Diangelo; “The Condemnation of Blackness” (Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America) by Khalil Gibran Muhammad; “The New Jim Crow” (Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness) by Michelle Alexander; “Tears We Cannot Stop” (A Sermon To White America) by Michael Eric Dyson.

Why am I sharing “All” of this with you? Maybe God is trying to tell you something! What could that be? That we were “All” created equal in the eyes of God. This COVID-19 virus should wake us “All” up and make us realize that we cannot continue down the paths that we’ve been going. God is not pleased with us. HE told us “I Leave Ye Another Commandment And That Is That Ye Love One Another!” Where Is The Love? Where Is The Human Kindness?
Wake Up! Wake Up! Wake Up! Wake Up! Wake Up! Wake Up! Wake Up! Wake Up! Our Governor Cuomo’s words “Systemic Racism” should wake us “ALL” up to what’s really going on and has been going on throughout eternity. This is coming forth to you from a heart of love.

Truthfully, I am 80 years old now, and I do not know how much longer that I will be in the land of the living with you, but I want you to “Always” remember that I truly do love “ALL” of you, but sometimes it has to be “Tough Love!” Please “Seriously” digest “All” of my words and hopefully realize that we cannot continue on in the way that we have been going. Wake Up! Wake Up! Wake Up!”

This is “Lillie’s Point Of View” and I’m just having my say. Now you can have yours. Peace!
