Today all around us we see the philosophy of racism and hatred has returned. Unfortunately its ugly head has surfaced in the descendants of those who in general were victims of racism. The descendants for the most part don't even realize they have become racists.

These new racists have been confused by those who practice power politics. The power hungry politicians of the past who used racism to manipulate whites against blacks, browns, reds, and yellow, have left their legacy to today's power hungry politicians who are using the same tactics of racism and hatred to manipulate blacks, browns, reds and yellow against whites. The purpose is to benefit the power of the politicians and their financial gains at the expense of everyone else—black, brown, red, yellow and white.

At the end of the Civil War, as a nation we thought we had righted the wrongs of hatred, racism and slavery. We had not. Racism and hatred, fueled by those who practice power politics, resurfaced in the form of the KKK and abortion clinics in black neighborhoods.

The KKK was tamped down publicly but continued its ugly agenda behind the scenes. Abortion clinics have proliferated to the point that abortion even after a baby is born is promoted as protecting the mother's health. In the past, abstinence was promoted to avoid unwanted children. Today, we see an agenda of hatred of women against men being promoted, with abstinence being promoted as a way to further the agenda of killing unwanted children.

In the years after John F. Kennedy's presidency, once again we thought we had finally closed the chapter against racism and hatred. Instead, we find the power hungry politicians have fanned the flames of hatred and racism ten-fold. The power hungry politicians and today's racists have done their best to rule from the bench and legislate away the very principles that have bound us together as a nation.

The only way for our country to survive the challenges that lay ahead is for all Americans to set aside pointing to the color of someone's skin as a basis for hatred and legislating away the principals this nation was founded upon. We must fill our nation's citizens with an understanding of the very principles and rule of law that make this country a magnet for freedom seekers from around the entire world. We must enforce the laws that are not in conflict with those principles, and deny access to our nation those who seek to destroy it from within and from without.

Each of us should examine ourselves first. Before pointing the finger and calling someone a racist, look for actual evidence of racism, the kind of proof that can stand up in a court of law. People are not racist solely due to the color of their skin or political affiliation. Innocent until proven guilty is one of the principles that bind us together as Americans.

Pointing the finger and declaring someone a racist without any proof, not only destroys the principles of this nation, but furthers the agenda of the power politicians that seek the destroy our wealth and our nation at our expense for their personal gain. And it reveals to the entire world that the person pointing the finger and calling someone a racist is actually the real racist.

Are you racist? Are your ideas being fueled by the power politicians?
THE FUEL BEHIND RACISM
(Leslie Bronken)

Today all around us we see the philosophy of racism and hatred has returned. Unfortunately its ugly head has surfaced in the descendants of those who in general were victims of racism. The descendants for the most part don't even realize they have become racists.
