It appears some people have a hankering for a race war. Trump himself appeared to throw gasoline on the fire recently by making a false claim that some people were calling for moments of silence in honor of the shooter in Dallas.
Let’s stop a minute and take a breath. Let’s consider something from a man who knew more than a thing or two about persecution.
“…there are two races of men in this world, but only these two — the ‘race’ of the decent man and the ‘race’ of the indecent man. Both are found everywhere; they penetrate into all groups of society. No group consists entirely of decent or indecent people. In this sense, no group is of ‘pure race’ — and therefore one occasionally found a decent fellow among the camp guards.”
Rather than getting worked into a lather over “who is with us” and “who is against us,” our time would be better spent asking who is a decent person…and who isn’t.
