The African American race must get beyond the color of their skin. It is they who continue to use this part of them as a way of manipulation, "getting free stuff" (which nothing is free), getting their way, making all others feel guilty for what was done to their race too many years ago. Margaret Sanger's (who Hillary Clinton greatly admires) goal was to eradicate (abortion).Come to their senses and be realistic in their reasoning and choice of politics. THEY ARE CHOOSING THEIR OWN DEATHS! Give up the anger and hatred that lies within their culture & Dem Party and choose the higher, better way of living. It may difficult but can be done. Stop tieing into this anti-black race energy and come apart to be who you can be.

Human race is a misnomer. There are, indeed, several races of humans on the planet differentiated by the gene pools they come from. Just like there are many different breeds of dogs, but we still call them all dogs.

J, how is race a misnomer?

so how many "races" are there?

I am not writing this letter to accuse but rather to advance understanding. And even though I am white, I am not writing as an outsider but as a fellow evangelical, part of the same spiritual family. May I pose some candid questions?

Are you guilty, on any level, of blind allegiance to the Democratic party? And, on Election Day, did any of you compromise your convictions out of racial solidarity?

I have been very open in my criticism of white evangelicals, pointing out how we often put our trust in the Republican party and how we look to the latest...
