Black Liberation Theology - Guest Post

 


I would like you to welcome my Guest Blogger. He wishes to remain anonymous as there has been a threat on his life. This man grew up under the Jim Crow Laws in the South. I felt it was important that people know about Black Liberation Theology and why it divides Whites from Blacks today. Race mongers abound, and this theology is destroying the black community with its lies.


Black Liberation Theology

As a disclaimer, I want to establish that I am neither a historian nor a minister. My observations are that of a young boy educated by Southern Baptist ministers who preached the doctrine of liberation theology during my teenage years, the first eight years of my formal education. During this time, I did not learn to read, write or count. I listened to their race bated sermons every Sunday and Wednesday nights. The ministers were often ordained with a quart of white lightening but had no formal education or theological training. In the separate-but-equal educational system in Mississippi, blacks were not allowed to be educated.

In order to understand liberation theology, it is necessary to peel off several layers of laws and attitudes. Slavery is the first layer to be removed. The Dixie Crates, members of the Southern Democrat Party created Jim Crow Laws, the second layer, to protect the property rights of southern slave owners when slaves were freed. Slaves were free but slave owners retained the same level of control with Jim Crow laws. There were separate-but-equal schools, drinking fountains, bathrooms, seats on trains and busses.
The plantations were de facto brothels for white landowners. The slave owner had rights to black women at will while a black man looking at a white woman for more than thirty seconds was condemned and executed as an “eye ball rapist “for which they were either hung or castrated. Hanging was the preferred method because it had a greater shock value. Remember the constitutional defined blacks at this time in American history to be only one third of a person. This gave the southern slave owners the right to treat slaves with no respect because they were one third human and two thirds animal. They raped and sodomized black women at will (Webster defines sodomy as anal and oral sex). It is from this background, sixty years after the fact that I make the following statement.

The doctrine of Liberation Theology parallel and complimented the Jim Crow laws designed to keep blacks in line. It is camouflaged with many shades of gray and heavily shrouded in unadulterated hatred and mistrust for whites. Liberation Theology, for the most part, concentrated on preaching that every bad thing that happened to blacks resulted from slavery, evil white men and greedy Republican businesspersons. There was no point in educating yourself because the evil white man would never allow you to advance. The message was to eat, drink and be merry because tomorrow you might be dead. I believe that this perspective is the reason that eighty-five percent of blacks fail to get an education and strive for success today. The key word “Education” in the black experience is equated to being too white, or an Uncle Tom. Black college educated Republicans are frequently labeled as being too white to understand what it is like to be black or they are an Uncle Tom.

For a long while, it was very difficult to wrap my mind around the contradictory views. The Catholic Church provided the structural guidance to overcome my fathers’ repudiation, abusiveness, hostility and illiteracy. The priest and nuns were frequently targets of the local Klan. Monthly the staff received hate messages in bottles thrown on the school property that referred to their work as the work of Satan. The Klan referred to the priest and nuns as Nazis and nigger lovers. My young untrained mind was constantly contrasting and validating the principles of Liberation Theology against the liberating love, peace, and understanding of Christ as emulated by the Catholic priest nuns. The love and devotion shown by the priests and nuns quickly invalidated the notion that all white people were evil. The nuns and priests were definitely not evil or greedy, but patient, long suffering and they were white. I had a major decision to make. At this point, I rejected the Liberation Theology indoctrination and converted to Catholicism. With the help of a tutor, the Catholic school had me reading at the eighth grade level in one school year.

Historically interesting are ministers who are tax-exempt and promote liberation theology in government-funded schools. I cite one minister in particular, Jessie Jackson. In the book “Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson”, December 1, 2003 by Kenneth R. Timmerman. I have reprinted verbatim from the paragraph Repudiation Day on page 420-421.

Mr. Jesse Lee Petersen grew up on a former plantation near Tuskegee. Alabama, and by the time he was a teenager hated whites. I was a young man, and I had a lot of anger. I did not have a father to teach me. I listened to people like Jesse Jackson, who told me that my problems were not my fault: It was racism. It was because of slavery. It was because the white man didn’t want me to move forward”. Petersen recalls hearing Jackson as an eighteen year old in Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles, where he had moved with an uncle and aunt. Jackson was a visiting speaker at the high school, and he was trying out a version of the PUSH-Excel “motivational” speech he would dispense around the country at government expense in the 1970s. The message was about race, power, and the evils of the white man: and especially the evils of the Republican Party. “He was saying the Republican Party was the party of the rich white males”, Petersen recalls. And the Democrats were the party of the people. I did not realize the partisan message at the time; because it was the type of thing black people were hearing everywhere behind closed doors. We have been brained washed by the civil rights movement for the past forty to fifty years. The people we trusted the most are the ones who are keeping us down and lying to us the most”.

The race base industry, formerly known as black Community Organizers, and staffed by men as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the Rev. Wright are still operationally and functionally enforcing Jim Crow laws on blacks. It is not the evil white man but the evil black men posing as non-certified ministers who are earning tax-exempt millions to keep blacks in their place in the Democrat party and dependent on the government for their livelihood. The men preaching liberation theology are still living in the 1880s.

  1. Hi Chéri! Thank you for your post and thank you for your guest.
    I work with indigenous people in Ecuador and sadly I can see the same thing happening here.
    The indigenous movement has fought hard for their rights, for the right to be considered a person, a human being. They have fought to have a school system in their own language, to have services in their own language, to be able to live according to their own culture and doing this, little by little, they have excluded themselves.
    There has been horrible historical wrongs, and wrongs that aren't so far apart in history. Just like in US.
    But the people leading political parties founded by indigenous people (there are several political parties in the ecuadorian system) use discourse that shows them living still in the age when indigenous people were not considered people. When their lives, language and culture were threatened by colonialists (as they call hispanic descended ecuadorians).
    Now that their rights for their own culture and language are secured by the contitution, these leaders find themselves in a confusing situation. Most of them continue with the same discourse, agitating people against the government and against coperation with other parties and people.
    It is a hard situation. And I have seen how confused these leaders are. They do not understand the situation as it is now and they do not see how to continue. When people outside try to reach out, they interpret it as an attack, as if other people are trying to rob their culture.
    For me the answer can be found in the young people and in education. Showing that education isn't white and being educated isn't same as become white and selling your own values and culture. But it's a long hard road ahead.

    1. You are so right, my dear. It takes several generations to overcome these sins of inequality. Many of us believed that we had finally reached the point where blacks would no longer point their finger at all whites and scream inequality. But, sadly, the racists among the blacks don't want to stop screaming. I can't help but feel that our dear Rev. Martin Luther King would be sobbing right now as he looked over the landscape of America and watched the Knockout Game, and listened to Jesse Jackson's comments, and Oprah Winfrey's comments, and Al Sharpton's agitating, and Harvard Professor Noel Ignatiev urging all white males to commit suicide. That was not the vision the Reverend had for America. He saw all men created equal, men judged by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin.
      As you say, it will take time and education on both sides. There was a line from a Star Trek movie where a character commented that those who had to live through the period when a peace treaty was signed between two warring peoples would be the most difficult. I can't help but agree. My only prayer was that that time had finally come to an end, but, alas, it is not so. We have much learning and growing to do, just as the Ecuadorian peoples must. I guess I'll be on my knees in prayer for a great deal longer.
