America’s Illusion

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27

Dear Young Man of Color || Spoken Word

I’ve had about enough of this praise and adulation for Bruce Jenner and his self-imposed new identity as being a woman. No matter how many times the news is presented to the public, no matter the different name or the newest tweet pronouncing this man’s personal decision to want to be a woman. He will always be what God created him to be.

America’s illusion always takes Americans away from the truth and facts of what our present situation is in this country.

You just have to ask yourself and wonder how suddenly the news of young Black and Latino males (and females) being systematically killed by law enforcement is suddenly pushed back from the headlines and off the news cycle.

This is not by chance but by design.

Everything that happens in America is built on controlling the message.

As a grandmother of four grandsons, I pray continually for their safety and well-being but also for them to walk in God’s truth and not man’s lies.

But America’s illusion has now placed all their attention on a rich man who decided to change his physical appearance and become the 24 hour media cycle for the entire world to gaze upon.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them Romans 1:18-32

And with this attention that Bruce is getting, it surely does undermine the activists who have been protesting, #BlackLivesMatter.

But sadly, America’s illusion does not include the many funerals and future funerals that will continue within the Black and Latino community.

America’s illusion says black lives don’t matter because the new Bruce brings in a profit and racial injustice does not.

Even the working of social media has diverted their attention away from reality and elevated someone whose wealth will be increased as will the share of media attention that he will continue to receive. All because of #AmericaIllussion.

America’s illusion is a sickness. That’s why they called it an ill(usion).

There is much work to do for the kingdom and even more to help save the lives of those America thinks don’t matter.
