No Escaping Slavery

“If your mother was a slave, then you would be born a slave. If your mother was free, then you would be born free.” — Frantz Emmanuel Kebreau, National Speaker and Author of “Stolen History1


Virginia 1662 LawVirginia was one of the first states to acknowledge slavery in its laws, initially enacting such a law in 1661. However, in 1662 the American Colony of Virginia enacted a law of hereditary slavery meaning that a child born to an enslaved mother inherits her slave status. This law would have a profound effect on the continuance of slavery, even after the slave trade was abolished in 1863.

Here is the law in the old english of its day:

Act XII
Negro Womens Children To Serve
According To The Condition Of The Mother.

“WHEREAS some doubts have arrisen whether children got by any Englishman upon a Negro woman should be slave or free, Be it therefore enacted and declared by this present grand assembly, that all children borne in this country shalbe held bond or free only according to the condition of the mother, And that if any christian shall committ ffornication with a Negro man or woman, hee or shee soe offending shall pay double the ffines imposed by the former act.” 2

While Slavery has existed for all times, this law officially recognized Slavery as an institution that needed to be defined, controlled and regulated.

Escaping Slavery

“All the early Black Congressmen (and senators) were members of the Republican party. This is because the Republicans, exemplified by President Abraham Lincoln, were the party in office during the Civil War and many abolitionists belonged to the Republican Party. The Democrats were opposed to all attempts to banish slavery.” — The Indigenous People of Africa and America (IPOAA) Magazine 3

First Black United States CongressmenThese seven (7) Black Republican Congressmen, Hiram Rhodes Revels of Mississippi, Benjamin S. Turner of Alabama, Jefferson F. Long of Georgia, Robert C. De Large, Robert Brown Elliott, and Joseph H. Rainey of South Carolina, and Josiah T. Walls of Florida were all born long before January 1st, 1863. To reach their positions, all seven (7) conquered virtually insurmountable odds fighting the Ku Klux Klan, extreme poverty, little to no political equity and the lack of “Due Process” and “Equal Protection” courtesy of the United States Supreme Court’s decision to eviscerate the 14th Amendment (adopted on July 9th, 1868) by way of the Slaughter-House cases in 1873. 4

It now appears we’ve moved from Slavery to Freedom.

No Escaping Slavery

“I freed thousands of slaves. I could have freed thousands more, if they had known they were slaves.” — Harriet Tubman (c. 1822 – 10 March 1913), also known as Black Moses, was an African-American abolitionist.


Doe v. Bolton 1973Doe v. Bolton, 410 U.S. 179, was a landmark decision of the United States Supreme Court that was released on January 22nd, 1973, the same day as Roe v. Wade. With this decision, the Supreme Court authorized the abortion business to take the life of a child in his or her own mother’s womb, even after the baby has reached viability (i.e., the ability of a child to live outside the mother’s womb with artificial aid), based solely upon the condition of the mother, in order to protect her physical, emotional, psychological, familial well being, and/or age limitations. 5

Is it only me or does this sound familiar to you too?

Escaping Slavery

Black Pro-Life CoalitionThe National Black Pro-Life Coalition is a growing network of Pro-Life and Pro-Family organizations committed to restoring a culture that celebrates Life, Family and Hope in the Black Community. Our goal, without apology and/or compromise, is to end abortion. Through education and awareness media campaigns, community events, political action, lobbying and coalition building of Pro-Life and Pro-Family advocacy groups with Biblical Worldviews, we will restore Life, Family and Hope in the Black Community. 6

Full circle, cycling from Slavery to Freedom and back to Slavery all over again and again and again ends here.

Join us.

Brothers, we really need to talk.

Stockholm Syndrome

Stockholm Syndrome

Stockholm City HallStockholm Syndrome is a term used to describe a phenomenon where hostages express devotion towards their captors that appear irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the hostages, essentially mistaking a lack of abuse from their captors as an act of kindness. At least four (4) conditions allow Stockholm Syndrome to develop: [1]

  1. A physical threat to kill the hostage and the ability to carry it out.

  2. The inability of the hostage to escape. The hostage feels their life and/or livelihood (i.e., the means of supporting their existence) depends on the captor.

  3. The hostage is isolated from outside views and forced to accept the views of the captor.

  4. After a threatening experience, the captor displays kindness to the hostage.

Stockholm Syndrome’s Effect

Former Kreditbanken at Norrmalmstorg, StockhomNot only is Stockholm Syndrome viewed as a natural response or defense mechanism, it is also viewed as a simple brainwashing technique. Antebellum slavers and modern day sex traffickers are examples of both past and present captors that create conditions where Stockholm Syndrome can develop. As a brainwashing technique the goal is to convince the hostage that: [2]

  1. The captor is omnipotent.

  2. Resistance is futile.

  3. Life depends on winning the captor’s indulgence thru absolute compliance.

  4. The lack of abuse is love.

Stockholm Syndrome’s Power and Potential

“I freed thousands of slaves. I could have freed thousands more, if they had known they were slaves.” — Harriet Tubman (c. 1822 – 10 March 1913), also known as Black Moses, was an African-American abolitionist.


Planned Parenthood LogoThe freedom, independence, empowerment and sense of security promised women by abortion is a lie. Can equality for women be achieved at the expense of murdering their children? Of course not. Abortion is oxymoronic. Planned Parenthood, the world’s largest abortion provider, embraces abortion as a “cruel kindness”. The truth is abortion is a lie that promises to improve the “quality of life” at the “expense of life.”

Here is a LifeCommercial that illustrates the point. [3]

Planned Parenthood LogoEmbracing leaders and organizations that embrace abortion as a necessary social policy to guarantee life, will ultimately result in the end of life. Abortion not only fails to free women, it ultimately promises to enslave us all. At times, I wonder if Planned Parenthood knows anything about the potential power, purpose and profit of creating conditions where Stockholm Syndrome can be developed. Because abortion is still legal in America, I also wonder if our church leaders, publicly elected representatives and pro-Life organizations are suffering from it?

Brothers, we really need to talk.

Inception

Inception

“No idea is simple when you need to plant it in somebody elses mind.” — Domonic Cobb To Saito 1


2010 Inception PosterBy definition in·cep·tion (in'sepSHən) is the establishment or starting point of an institution or activity. In 2010 Inception was the name of a 2010 psychological science fiction action film written, co-produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan that became the sixth-highest grossing film of 2010 in North America by exceeding over $800 million dollars. 2

Planting An Idea

In the movie technology exists that allows corporate spies to enter the human mind through dream invasion and extract secrets from deep within the subconscious mind during the dream state. However, this movie is not about extracting an idea. It’s about the reverse, planting an idea. It’s about the impossible-inception. It’s a job that’s never been done before successfully.

Or has it?

Here are a few lines from the script: 3

COBB: You’ve done it before?
EAMES: Yes and no. We tried it. Got the idea in place, but it didn’t take.
COBB: You didn’t plant it deep enough?
EAMES: It’s not just about depth. You need the simplest version of the idea — the one that will grow naturally in the subject’s mind. Subtle art.
COBB: That’s why I’m here.

Is This Possible?

“Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn’t.” — Mark Twain (1835-1910)


2010 Inception PosterThe great debate over Inception is still raging. Are our minds vulnerable while we are sleeping? Are dream within a dream within a dream strategies that eclipse the logical limits of reality possible? Is it possible invade someone’s dreams to extract their deepest and darkest secrets? Is it possible to manipulate someone’s subconscious with craft so delicate and so precise that it cannot be detected? Is it possible, by way of cunning so clever, complex and calculating, to plant an idea within a person’s subconscious mind in an effort to forge the future and our own fortunes? Is it possible for several people to meaningfully interact, with validity, with weight and with dramatic consequences within the same shared dream?

No, this is not possible … Or is it?

The Subtle Art

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he …” — King Solomon, Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)


2010 Inception PosterSubtlety is fine or delicate in meaning or intent. Subtlety is difficult to perceive or understand. Subtlety is often employed slowly using a series of cloaked clues until the desired conclusion is reached. While inception as defined in the movie is not real, Satan is. Satan is an evil adversary skilled in deceit and deception. Satan is an ancient enemy who can transform himself into an angel of light. Satan is a murderer from the beginning, and never abides in the truth. Satan is more than a liar. He is the father of lying and since its inception, like a monster, Satan has relentlessly used it to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). Satan is very adept at the subtle art of planting an idea and nurturing its growth in our unguarded minds.

The following stratagem is offered for your consideration:

Level One: Recast Responsibility
Lie: The White man owes us reparations (i.e., 40 acres and a mule).
Truth: We are responsible for our own lives.
Level Two: Alter Accountability
Lie: Unplanned pregnancies enslaves us.
Truth: We are accountable for our own actions.
Level Three: Deaden Discernment
Lie: Abortion frees our future.
Truth: Our future cannot be achieved at the expense of our children.

Truly, some evil can only be dealt with by fasting and prayer (Mark 9:29).

Spinning Tops

“So when you examine your totem … you know, beyond a doubt, that you’re not in someone else’s dream.” — Arthur (Arthur is Cobb’s right hand man, and apparently closest friend.) 4


Dom Cobb's TotemIn the movie Inception, Dominic Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his partner Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) are highly skilled and highly motivated dream invaders who perform illegal corporate espionage by entering the subconscious minds of their targets to extract valuable information for money. Each of the extractors carries a small personalized object called a totem whose behavior is unpredictable to anyone except its owner, to determine whether they are in another person’s dream. For example, Cobb’s totem was a pewter spinning top that originally belonged to his tragically deceased wife Mal who now exists only as a tormenting memory. Should Cobb spin the top and it topples over, he knew he was awake. However, if the top continued to spin, without end, then Cobb knew he was still dreaming.

As I think about the fifty (50) million lives loss to abortion, the hearts and minds of the men and women betrayed by the lies of Planned Parenthood, the family futures broken by the demonic death of a child and the soul of our country bloodied by the hands of abortionists, it occurs to me that Margaret Sanger’s dream is really a nightmare and that the spinning tops in the White House, Court House and even in the Church House have long since stopped spinning.

Brothers, we really need to talk.

Voter Turnout

SPECIAL EDITION: 4TH OF JULY

Voter Turnout

The basic formula for determining whether someone will vote is: 1

PB + D > C

P is defined as the probability that an individual’s vote will affect the outcome of an election. B is defined as the individual’s perceived benefit that would result if that individual’s party or candidate were elected. D once stood for democracy or civic duty, but today represents the satisfaction an individual gets from voting. C is the cost (i.e., time, effort, financial, etc.) of voting. Given that P is virtually zero in most elections, PB is also near zero. As such, D becomes the most important element in voter turnout. In other words, for an individual to vote, the satisfaction resulting from voting must outweigh the time, effort and/or the financial cost of voting.

Voter Values and Beliefs

Transfer ValuesValues are deeply held beliefs about what is good, right, and appropriate. Values are deep-seated and remain constant over time. Values are accumulated from childhood based on the teachings and observations of our parents, teachers, religious leaders, and other influential and powerful people. Beliefs are conclusions we accept as true regardless of others opinions or evidence from other sources. Our beliefs are derived from our values.

Voter Values Transmitters

“One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised.” — Chinua Achebe 2


Black VotersIf the satisfaction we receive from our actions are linked directly to the values and beliefs we embrace, then voter values and beliefs are “the most important element in voter turnout”. If people that vote, vote their values, then the candidates and policies that win elections reflect the values and beliefs of the majority of voters. If the candidates and policies that win elections reflect the values and beliefs of the majority of voters, then the values transmitters that appeal to the majority of voters are determining our social policies. If the values transmitters that appeal to the majority of voters are determining our social policies, are Biblically-Based, Christ-Centered values and beliefs being transmitted if abortion on demand is still legal after 2,006 Sunday morning sermons since Monday, January 22nd, 1973? 3

Independence Day Celebration

“What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July?” — Frederick Douglass 4


Frederick DouglassAs I consider the Second Continental Congress’ vote to separate the Thirteen (13) Colonies from Great Britain and the fact that many of the members of the Second Continental Congress, some even signers of our Declaration of Independence, were slave owners who personally profited from the slave trade, I cannot help but wonder if history is repeating itself today. With many of our publicly elected leaders, supporting taxpayer funded abortion on demand, exactly what values are we as a country celebrating on the 4th of July? It appears to me that we as a country have not learned much from the lessons of life and liberty in our past. In fact and in light of the fifty million lives lost to legally induced abortion since 1973, I believe Frederick Douglass (born Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, February 1818 — February 20, 1895) was right when he said: “There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States at this very hour.” 5

Brothers, we really need to talk.
