An Old, Sick, Self-Serving Game

It was not unexpected that Republicans would acquit/excuse former president Donald J. Trump 
for inciting the January 6 insurrection on our U.S. Capital.  We always knew they (except for the few) lacked the character and courage to hold him accountable. What was insulting and galling was to use Black Lives Matter as a false moral equivalence and argument to not hold DJT accountable. It has always been easy for these folks to disrespect and blame anything “Black.” 

As an educated rational Black man of 64 years, Christ Follower and community servant for 43 years, it is not lost on me what too many white folk have done, or will do, to cover up one another, while easily hanging blame/guilt on others. It is an old, sick, self-serving game. 

The only consolation from this ordeal is knowing who is who by words, deeds and silence. The whole world knows.

Matthew 7:16, You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
