To understand why your elected officials will not raise the question of passing a bill in favor of our people, we must understand who we are. Recently the Senate and President passed an anti-Asian hate crime bill. There has been a rise of violence against Asians in America, due to the view that they brought COVID-19 to the country. One of the worse instances of assault was the shooting of six Asian women in a massage parlor in Atlanta. All throughout the news they sympathized with the Asian community, with the fears sparked against Asian owned businesses. The shooter’s motives were ignored, which were based on his sex addiction, it was not because of hate towards Asians. Yet the government came together to pass a hate crime bill using the recent news.
Psalms 83:3 “They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.” Verse 4: “They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.” Verse 5: “For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:”
While our people have suffered systematic oppression and hate that is openly known, yet no progress has been done. Not even when there was a black president or when our people tried politically to resolve their own issues. We must ask ourselves the question, why are we targeted and never receive relief? The answer is in this chapter of Amos, to put it simply we are being punished. But why? Because you are special to God, unfortunately our people are ignorant of this fact. The question of why the system is constantly targeting them never comes to their minds. Such blatant discrimination and racist remarks in the news are tolerated against so called Black, Hispanic, and Native American Indian victims. As long as they keep you with the mindset that you are nothing, you will never seek your rightful place as the chosen of God.
