A Change On The Horizon?

The South is crucifying Christ again By all the laws of ancient rote and rule . . . Christ’s awful sin is that he’s dark of hue, The sin for which no blamelessness atones; . . . And while he burns, good men, and, women too, Shout, battling for his black and brittle bones. — “Christ Recrucified,” Countee Cullen, 1922

Racism and Mental Health

“The American Psychiatric Association has never officially recognized extreme racism (as opposed to ordinary prejudice) as a mental health problem, although the issue was raised more than 30 years ago. …. The association’s officials rejected the recommendation, arguing that because so many (white) Americans are racist, even extreme racism in this country is normative—a cultural problem rather than an indication of psychopathology.”

“The current system cannot force states to share all of their records with the NICS database, especially ones regarding mental health. This lack of records allows some people with mental issues to legally purchase guns.

Seung-Hui Cho, the shooter in the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007, had been declared mentally ill by a judge two years before he murdered 32 people. But Cho had gone through a background check and been cleared.” – http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/10/politics/background-checks-explainer/index.html

Now the question is how do you deal with people who have “licensed” guns with ammunition who are mentally unstable?  Racism, being looked at as a mental illness for the last 3 decades, cannot be ignored for too much longer and its normative state should be reason enough to reign in these gun owners who suffer with this affliction.

Until we can see the cross and the lynching tree together, until we can identify Christ with a “recrucified” black body hanging from a lynching tree, there can be no genuine understanding of Christian identity in America, and no deliverance from the brutal legacy of slavery and white supremacy.

Cone, James H. (2011-09-01). The Cross and the Lynching Tree . Orbis Books. Kindle Edition.

We truly have a ways to go and a sometime to get there. And as long as we can’t see each other in the conversation there will never be dialogue. There will never be understanding. There can never be a US without us. It is my position that what happened of late is a sign of more to come and the madness that follows has no real place in our lives. What reason would any sane person have for passing over, with a minimum of concern, someone else’s rights. It’s simply a sign that there is more work to be done and people have to come together and make all of this right again. There should never be one set of rules for one and another set of rules for all others.

    Nice blog!
    Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustments would really make my blog look more professional.
    Please let me know!
    Many thanks

    Hello there.
    I was contemplating adding a backlink back to your website since both of
    our websites are centered around the same subject.
    Would you prefer I link to you using your website address: http://ceseay.
    wordpress.com/2013/07/14/a-change-on-the-horizon/ or blog title:
    A Change On The Horizon? | Always In SeaySon!. Please let me know!
    Cheers

    Hiya.
    I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe
    guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and
    I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to
    be interested feel free to drop me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

      Let’s explore the trading of links. Guest writing is definitely a doable and I look forward to checking your blog out as well.

    Amazing! I’m genuinely enjoying the design and style of your weblog. Are you using a custom made template or is this freely available to all individuals? If you do not want to say the name of it out in the general public, please contact me. I’d really like
    to get my hands on this template! Appreciate it.

    Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly
    long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Sucks! Anyway, just wanted to say great blog!
    My wife and I frequently write guest articles or blog posts for other website owners to help increase exposure to our work, as well as provide fantastic articles to site owners. It’s a win win situation!

    If you are interested feel free to e-mail me so
    we can discuss this further. Thanks!!
