When #BlackLivesMatter Protesters and Counter-Protesters Met in Dallas

When #BlackLivesMatter Protesters and Counter-Protesters Met in Dallas

Your must watch video today

I’ve been surprisingly encouraged post-Dallas shootings. Rather than surrender to the usual partisan bias, Americans from all walks of life are working together, praying together, and recognizing the country’s dire need for change. Real change.

This video captures once such instance.

When protesters and counter-protesters crossed paths in the streets of Dallas, they didn’t fuss or fight. They met on neutral turf and prayed together.

There is always hope, even in the worst of situations.

I suspect their preachers were all on board with this, too.

This video made me tear up a bit. With all the nastiness being thrown around I’m in dire need of things like this. There is hope.

Lets see. Media reaction? Crickets.

Dylan Roof, SC, the people came together. Dallas, the people came together. Hmm…. Could it be that the South has more love, sense and ability to grow, engage, forgive?

    I know, from living on both coasts as well as Texas, that the South in many ways is more grounded and more fair-minded than the people who consider them flyover country.

    It’s like the old joke….

I’m too much a cynic – while this is sweet, it doesn’t matter. As Brigitte Gabriel has said “the peaceful majority are irrelevant”. Its the radicals that are driving, not us.

And while I can appreciate the message of this meet up, I’m getting weary of all the touchy feely come together crap, when we should be dismantling BLM. With violence if necessary.

Things like changing our FB avatars to Blue to express solidarity with police is worse than useless.

#Blacklivesmatter has the power to whip up a mob into a murderous frenzy, but it does not have the power to calm down said mob.

Rubbing the lamp can get the genie out of the bottle, but can’t put the genie back in.

So the gesture in the video, if touching, is ultimately meaningless.

For some time now, it sees that America evidently needs to hit rock-bottom before there’s a genuine reality check. It’s my hope, and prayer, that more and more people are coming to realize we need to pull together, because pulling apart is getting us nowhere.

I’ll put no more weight on this coming together than it deserves. I’m glad to see this, though. And, possibly it with other similar incidents of awakening might gain some momentum. Top-down command and control, especially from this administration, hasn’t worked. Let the people themselves be the initiators of needed change.

Our history indicates we can do it, if we roll up our sleeves and put our hearts and minds to the task

This is the only level were things will change.
Person to person.

The Federal Government can not fix this!

Where is the media with this story? Crickets!

If this type of activity went nation wide Clinton would lose the Black vote. For her to get the vote there must be hate between the races.
