I am just so sad for the loss of life, and it would not matter what color he was- A child is dead. I also think as the adult, Zimmerman has more responsibility (in my eyes) to keep the situation calm. ugbu a, did he do that? Communicate in a friendly way that he was the watch? Only God knows. And only God will render true justice.
        All I know is I am not home and this [ụwa] is not where I belong.

        • Nathanial Polingzaghachi

          Are you assuming Zimmerman aimed for his heart? I am sure Zimmerman would have preferred to not kill the teenager that was trying to beat his brains out.

        • Agwazaghachi

          The bullet went straight through the heart, so it would be valid to assume that was Zimmerman’s intent.

          Whatever his preference was cannot change what he actually did. I am pretty sure if I was getting hurt, and I had a gun (which is unlikely), I would shoot his stomach, arm, leg- somewhere else apart from his heart.

        • Nathanial Polingzaghachi

          apparently you have never been in a fightif you had that much time to aim you could have shot in the air and let the guy run away

  6. Tylorzaghachi

    let’s continue discussing the issue of racism, ee. but stop falsely associating racism with this case. after a year of collecting evidence nobody was ever able to find any shred of proof of racism in zimmerman’s past or on that night. let’s stop chasing ghosts and focus on real racismlike the kind the media showed throughout this case to stir up racial animosity and tear us apart just to increase their ratings.

  7. Tony Clinezaghachi

    Is it racist to assume that a black man is more of a danger than other races when African-Americans make up 12.6% of the population but commit 49.7% of murders, as well as a highly disproportionate percentage of rapes, assaults, robberies, and every other crime the FBI tracks except for DUI? Is that racist, or is it just intelligent decision-making based on relevant facts? I am not saying that racism does not exist; it does, and on all sides. Otú ọ dị, there is more to the conversation than saying that everyone who feels unsafe around people that are statistically much more likely to be violent criminals is a racist.

  8. Washington DC Evangelistszaghachi

    Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.~ Romans 12:19-21

  9. C.zaghachi

    I don’t really disagree with anything you said, especially with how ugly it is when people aren’t given the benefit of the doubt in those day to day moments. But having been friends with some cops I know that, for some of them, giving that benefit of the doubt would have gotten them killed. This world is so broken and nasty sometimes, with guilt and junk all over the place. Only Jesus can pull us out of it.

    I hate that you had to deal with that stuff. And I hate that in some ways profiling is a super ugly, awful necessity (not in the Zimmerman case). Its hard too, with media and culture that embraces the sort of image that almost preaches open, ike ike, arrogant lawlessness. And that there are people making money off of this culture of violence and Godlessness. And that so many people who don’t understand what’s it’s like to be the other guy could care less about knowing what it means to be the other guy.

    I love that God’s love is so much mightier than the world. I just wish that God’s love would be more often displayed in the world through us, and not despite us.

    The conversation should definitely continue. :)

    Great stuff Mr. Lee. Chukwu gozie!

  10. apallo95zaghachi

    while racism is a big deal a lot of people seem to forget that zimmerman was latino himself. just putting that out there as a fact that should be kept in mind when this case is discussed

  11. Lizzizaghachi

    I believe a very effective way of fighting against racism is to have God-fearing, honest black men who live lives that undermine the stereotype for us to point to and say No, sin is the problem, not race. I have a very high opinion of almost all of the black men and women who I’ve been privileged to call friends and mentors. I’m more likely to be biased in their favor than anything elseReach Records is a huge factor in this, for a blonde girl growing in grace and being edified hugely by their music. What you are doing is very helpful.

  12. Lynnzaghachi

    Amen and Amen!! We must love with the love of Christ and pray for both families that are involved. Racism is real and is heartbreaking for me to see. Thank you for sharing this!

  13. MIchaelzaghachi

    I wrote this early this evening before I read your post, which I totally get by the way, and I thought I would share it

    So in case you were hiding under a rock Zimmerman was found not guilty the other day. Some will congratulate, others will cry foul. This ruling has divided the country and in some cases even the church. I was reading a comment today from a person in the media, and their comments really made my blood boil. Personally I’ve given this a lot of thoughts, and I have my opinions, but this post isn’t about what I do or don’t think about Zimmerman’s aquital. Jesus said that the Thief comes to steal, kill and destroy….(John 10:10) Division is a silent killer. It grows from the seeds of bitterness that are planted in our hearts when we take our eyes off Jesus and the will come out if we aren’t careful. Luke 6:45 -ekwu “The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart. ”

    When Jesus began his ministry the desciples saw Jesus as politcal activist. They were expecting Jesus to swoop in and right every wrong that Rome had ever done to the Jews. They probably were okay with Jesus cracking some Roman heads if it meant rectifying years of occupation. Yet from day one Jesus preached love and servant hood. At some point the disciples probablly figured out Jesus wasn’t going to Bruce Lee anybody. I wonder what they thought of that privately? The Jewish people had dealt with occupation for a very long time. In fact I believe from the last book of the Old Testament to the time of Jesus was something like 400 afọ. THose seeds of resentment and bitterness from being occupied had blossomed and they were ready to get even. The Messiah had finally come and it was time to rally the troops, hand out pitchforks and storm the castle. Yet while they were lighting the torches Jesus was out preaching love your neighbor and do unto others as you want them to do unto you. That had to drive them crazy. To add insult to injury as Jesus hung from the cross, He asked that the Father would forgive them, because they didn’t truly know what they were doing. So what does this all mean?

    Jesus was an activist of love and as his brothers and sisters we are implored, no we are commanded to do the same. Because at the end of the day Love is the only thing that will ever changes anything. We can storm a castle, and protest all we want, but there will always be a hidden agenda if we aren’t aware of it first. Love heals wounded hearts and unites broken relationships. n'anya, builds up, encourages, and comforts. Love doesn’t condemn, or reject, it embraces. We are quick to forget that while we were yet ALL SINNERS Christ died his shed blood was made available to: The rich, the poor, the black, the white, (and every shade in between)the straight, the gay, the fatherless, the hopeless, the homeless, the oppressed, the rejected, the religious, the islamic, the terrorist, the child molester the thief, the bank president, the lawyer, the fireman, politician, doctor, and every other person that has every drawn a breath on this earth, Jesus died for them. If there is a protest to be made then let it be at the gates of Hell by the bride of Christ, stating that We will love, we will serve, we will forgive as Jesus has done for us.

    Why is it African American, I don’t call myself Irish American, I’m just American, I was born here not in Ireland. See that’s where segregation starts dividing up into groups, then the we’re better than you, starts. That segregation breeds racism, both were in the wrong, Trayvon, was for slamming Georgeshead into the ground, plus if he wasn’t doing anything wrong why wouldn’t he just comply? George should have listened to the dispatcher and let the cops handle it. But the burning of the American flag, not African American, Mexican American, Irish American, English American, or Scottish American flag, just American, is wrong. That’s like stepping on the hearts of every American that died protecting everything it stands for. The death threats to Georges family and numerous in the name of Trayvon killings that have occurred are way wrong. The Lord says turn to them your other cheek, or have we forgotten who is in charge here. Trayvon was no saint, and George was no murderer, they were both victims of circumstance. No one should have gotten beat up and no one should have lost their life. This was all a political play for power and the great deceiver has got what he wanted. Stay rooted in your word not media.

      I would LOVE to be considered just an American. Not an African American. But society alas will not allow me that. I am just as American as any one else. But the media has caused so much of a divide.. and people have bought into it.
      I remember one of the first jobs I had. A white lady sat next to me and told me.. “So do you know you are the first African -American we have hired?” She smiled and looked so proud. Ka ọ dịgodị, I felt ashamed, like some spectacle monkey that arrived at the zoo ready to show them how well their “mbụ” black employee would do. Why did she have to point that out and make me feel soweird? I just wanted to be a normal kid at her second job out of college, but instead I became a paranoid mess..
      So why do I say African American? Ọfọn, do I have a choice?

    Awesome words, njem. Sorry you’ve had to go through the situations you have. I admire you for speaking out about this, and for reminding those of us that have not. Press on!!!

    Trip Sharpton,

    This had nothing to do with racism. Oh, I forgot, you are black so you think that you have the moral authority to accuse anyone of racism. The rest of us are all racists. Ndo, that garbage has been stinking long enough. Time to empty the trash and yes it is time to move on.

  17. geebeezaghachi

    I AM sorry you have experienced racial profiling in your life. m, oke, have been stared at and ignored for just saying
    “ụtụtụ ọma” to store clerks or folks I pass on the street. I have also been threatened and told I did not belong in a neighborhood and had better leave, because I am white. My daughter has been denied her right to vote twice, but I don’t think she isdisenfranchised”. But then I don’t have hate mongers like Al Sharpton and theNAACP speaking for me; only about me. As a nation, and as the Body of Christ, I think we need to think LESS about race and our differences and diversity, We need to get back to being thegreat American melting potas a nation, and to remind ourselves that we are all equal at the foot of the cross as the Church. The more race and racism is discussed, the more hatred I experience, which in turn, as a survival mechanism, makes me suspicious of other races and less likely to extend the Gospel to them. And if you don’t want to be treated like a possible thug, or wise guy, or redneck, don’t dress and act like one.

  18. Leslie Pollard Stiverszaghachi

    I loved this post. I appreciate hearing your experiences and my heart breaks to remember the reality that profiling happens every day. I can’t help, Otú ọ dị, to ask what you and others think of what this case says of reverse racism. It seems to me that the black community right now is completely ignoring the facts of the case (you can watch the whole thing on YouTube) and singling in on the profiling thing (no one knows for sure if Zimmerman did so and the character evidence in the trial suggests that GZ was not as racist as people have made him out to be). What if Trayvon was high (marijuana in his system, found in the autopsy)? What if his character suggests he might have been a thug? What if he did in fact pursue George and throw the first blow? These things and much more were discussed at length in the trial and the evidence suggests that though Zimmerman could have made wiser choices (not gotten out of his truck, for example), he didn’t do anything illegal. We don’t know all the answers to these questions, but just because a young man is black doesn’t mean that if he looks and acts like a thug he won’t be profiled as one. No one seems to acknowledge that this violent kid (with his father in Sanford because he was suspended for fighting, stealing, drug use, etc) made wrong decisions too. I want to see a post from a black man or woman that cries out for an end to the thuggery within in their community. I want us minorities to be about the business of teaching our young men and women to look more like Christ. Though my two young boys are a bit lighter-skinned than I am and may not have the same experiences that I did, I will tell them to keep smiling at people who clutch their bags and never forsake doing good. I don’t deny that racism exists, but it seems to me that it is flagrantly worse from blacks right now. The white hatred seethes with evil and ignorance. People are doing the very thing they hate. There is no peace, no forgiveness, ultimately no faith in God to right the wrongs in the world or to trust Him to redeem it all. Individuals jump on the opportunity to call someone a racist. Christians have got to hold up truth in all things. We can’t play the race game, we are about changing culturenot making a better “black” culture orwhite” omenala, but holding up and exalting a Judeo-Christian culture that encourages things like love, peace, and forgiveness. Christians must see this case in light of the truth, and not participate in the war cries and witch hunt that is taking place right now. Pray for both families. Christ have mercy on us all. More of my thoughts on race & culture here: http://wp.me/p2C5Cy-VY I welcome visitors and feedback.

    As a fellow brother in Christ, I will first say that I know this is a complex issue that the church as a whole seems to get mired in all the time with no real resolution, even if thesolution” (Jesus) is right next to us. So I do want to show the love of God in my response to your blog, no matter what my convictions.

    In reading your blog, your point seemed to indicate that GZ should have been convicted of 2nd degree murder simply because heracially profiledTM. This is not how the judicial system works. You can’t ask a jury to give you amoralwin and mete out justice simply because the other guy doesn’t like the color of your skin. The facts are that GZ is not white despite what the media/NAACP/Celebrity Hollywood/and Rev Al would like you to believe. He is of a mixed ethnicity of Hispanic/Latino descent and grew up in a multicultural family. ọ “profiledTM because of burglaries that had recently happened in the gated community. With a hoodie on and jeans, following someone from behind, you can’t tell what race/ethnicity they are. I coach football and wear hoodies all the time in the fall, and my own dog has barked at me coming into my house when I’ve had my hoodie on because she didn’t recognize me. You can’t walk into most banks or credit unions wearing a hoodie. They will stop and ask you to remove it. Same goes for hats and sunglasses in most financial institutions. Are theyracially profiling”? Ọ bụghị n'ezie, ma ọ bụ “àgwà”, and this isn’t wrong. We ALL do it to each other all the time. And yes, I have been followed by store security before, and I have been stopped by police and questioned before, and in every convenience store near most high schools, they won’t let students come in with backpacks and they limit the number of students in the store. I live in California and the city I live is multicultural. In most of the stores like my local Safeway and Walmart, the security or loss prevention teams have many minorities of black, asian, Hispanic ethnicities. If they suspect someone of possibly committing a crime, or fitting aprofile”, is it racism if they follow them around the store or keep an eye on them, or even stop them for questioning if they are both black..? I’ve seen it happen, so it’s a legitimate question.
    It seems to me that most of the folks that are upset with the verdict and are being the most vocal about it are ranting that somehow TM’s civil rights were violated. In today’s day and age, with rampant crime and disregard for human life, where words like HONOR and INTEGRITY are lost in a sea ofwhat’s in it for meand a rampant entitlement mentality, most of these folks couldn’t give you the proper definition ofcivil rights”. They line up behind jackwagons like Rev Al Sharpton, and the NAACP and exploit social ignorance from people like Rachel Jeantel and make her the poster child for their racism case. n'ezie? These are the folks picked to fight thecivil rightsracism battle for the black community? These are who you want to stand with? Please. I think Dr. Martin Luther King would weep if he saw what a circus folks like these have turned the racism and civil rights fight, into. The fact is that racism is not the main enemy anymore for black America. Not even close. Black on Black crime, birthed by the continual breakdown of the family unit, and catalyzed by a system that says that the gov’t owes you something, and will take care of you, is a good place to start, if you really want to hit the biggest giant the black community faces. Ka ọ dịgodị, there are some that focus on solutions and are tackling some of these mindsets. The folks at National Center for Public Policy Research and their Project 21 Initiative are folks that I will align myself with and support all day long.
    Ultimately, Christ’s love will win. It always does. And it will happen one heart at a time.
    Let me end by saying that I know that racism exists and happens everyday. But we are bigger than that. Every race or ethnicity that has experienced the vile bite of racism has been created by God to overcome and be bigger than that hatred. The great men and women of black American history primarily made their mark for generations by not letting racism consume them. They rose above the circumstances and prevailed anyway. They could have quit and used racism as an excuse, but they didn’t. That same perseverance and strength from God Almighty is there for any of us to tap into no matter what any of us face.
    Thanks for reading, and God Bless You..!!

    njem, I appreciate the educated, nonpartisan, Christian viewpoint of this post. Just to get it out there, I’m a 26yr old white grad student from AL living in OK. Otú ọ dị, after graduating from Auburn 4 afọ ndị gara aga, I went to live in the D.R. Congo for 2 afọ. m na-ekweta, growing up, before I was a Christian, I was as much of a racist as 85% of the suburban culture around me was. Otú ọ dị, the new-heart that Christ has given me has changed that.
    The point is, while living in the Congo, literally everyone around me at any given time was black. I loved the people I lived around, worked around, and almost everyone I met. Otú ọ dị, in that culture, there were still people I profiled. Young men walking in the market without anything to sell, or any interest in anything, for example. My pockets were cleared twice, though I was quick enough to grab the guys and get my nokia brick back. Ọzọkwa, the police were *generally* corrupt. I profiled them every time I saw anyone in uniform. I was stopped, arrested, or harassed more times than I can count by the police/soldiers, as were many of the locals that I knew. Does that make it racist for me to profile those types of people because they happened to be black? N'otu ụzọ, how is it racist when I move my wife to the other side of my body when walking past a white man that I think looks suspicious? Its the same concept, and I submit that it is not racism. My point is that profiling is a natural human instinct and *can be* racist, but it isn’t always.

  21. Adolfzaghachi

    If any person doesn’t want to be a criminal, perhaps they shouldn’t wear the uniform. Today, almost 70 years after world war 2. What would you think of someone wearing a nazi uniform? It’s just clothes right?

  22. gdoggydog05zaghachi

    nwekwara. i feel it is racist. to award or discipline based on race. and it is racist that if your a white journalist, dị ka m….you get fired if you say the wrong thing about race. but if your a black journalist you can say that more white kids must die, in order for America to understand racism (link at bottom). look, this is my point. i am only harping on these things, because i want christians to understand that there will always be race issues on both sides. i don’t think we should go the same route as the world and latch on to them. for every instance of racism against blacks, you can find some against other races. although i do understand that slavery was a horrid thing and my ancesters, truly, will never understand white my black brothers and sisters ancestors have gone through.we should not cater to any race to try toequalizethings. proof in point is that the one true God would never do this!!! Would God almighty hand out scholarships based on race??? NEVER NEVER NEVER. Maybe based on income. But God would never show favor based on race. Israel was chosen, not because of anything in them, but God’s good purposes only. My “old friendsresent this, and it only increases their racist thoughts. “Handouts” na “double standardsanger them. And the argument that sort-of saysi just cant understand the struggleis deeply hurtful to me. it says that i can only go so far with my black brothersi’ll never really be their brother though, cause I don’t understand what its like to be them. It says that the experiences of the black man divide us, more than Christ unites us. That is what I see this article unintentionally saying. I actually do know what it is like to be profiled. I was a kid once. We all go through tough times. You may not know what its like to have a mom with cancer, dị ka m. Or you may not know what it was like to be sent to home for bad kids when i was 12 afọ, neglected by my white, affluent, suburban family and left to wonder why they didn’t love me. Let’s not start keeping score here. This totally is a warped improper perspective to focus on those unique experiences. Let us come together and rejoice that we have been given grace when we deserved death.

      I HIGHLY DOUBT that Trip is seeking to alienate brothers and sisters on the basis of race. He’s a black man in a predominantly white church for which he has often and without pause expressed gratefulness. But there are elements of being black in America that are unique and thoroughly incongruent with other cultural experiences!

      So PLEASE, I beg of you all, understand the difference between genuine empathy and meaningful sympathy. As we walk with our brothers and sisters in Christ, we will have few opportunities to counsel from a place empathy borne of shared experience but we will often be called to the patient, loving work of meaningful sympathy. That is where we listen to the hardships people have experienced, never minimizing the validity of his or her suffering by offering counter-examples to trump their experience, and frequently assuming that our counsel, though it may serve the individual, will not be an immediate panacea to assuage their pain, frustration, or even anger.

      Regardless of any flawed perspectives on this case or race, too many of
      us in the church (esp. via social media) wax eloquent on the things of the world but end up
      sounding more like Job’s insensitive friends. Now is a time when people are confused and very upset. People of ALL colors are displeased with the outcome of this case. Most of them need patience and genuine comfort. Not a lecture on the legal system orcorrupt media”, not bait-and-switch examples, nor disdainful political punditry. Point them to Jesus like you with gentleness.

    When I was a young girl, about elementary aged, I was racially profiled in what was then Eckerd Drug Store (now CVS). I didn’t know at that age what was happening to me, but I knew as a child it wasn’t right. I was with my mom and I had earned $20. I thought I was rich. I wanted to buy some candy and other things in the store. But one of the sales clerks saw me walking the aisle alone and she assumed that I was going to steal or do something wrong I guess. She followed me all around the store. It felt annoying to have this lady follow me. I finally found my mom on one of the aisles and told her I didn’t feel like shopping anymore. I told her when we left the store what happened and she said the lady probably thought I was going to steal. It made me sad that she thought a little girl looked like a thief. Fast forward to being a grown woman and the same thing happening to me as an adult in a nice store. I was naive to think that kind of thing shouldn’t happen these days. But unfortunately, racism is not dead. Neither is intolerance for the differences of others whether people are Americans or immigrants, gay or straight, fat or skinny, educated or under-educated, rich or poor. Instead of celebrating our differences we are justtoleratingeach other. We all bear some prejudices and I know personally I need to work on loving my neighbor as I love myself. You may not be able to change someone’s
    prejudices, but you can change your attitude about how you deal with those who
    pre-judgeyou and how you respond to it. I have a son who is black
    and Dominican. I want him to grow up having respect for all cultures whether he
    chooses to identify himself as African American or Hispanic or both. He will be taught
    to speak English and Spanish. He will be taught the history of both cultures.
    And most importantly he will be taught to love God and to love people. I believe it begins at home and what we live is what we learn and sadly what is reflected outside in our world.

      Mam, I am white, and I have experienced the same thing both as a child and as an adult…. I don’t know that those instances were race related. N'ezie, haha, many times clerks followed me around as a kid, teenager, etc. Even now I am sure cameras follow me when I walk into a Wal-Mart, as my friend who works LP says I walk like a thief it seems…. agbanyeghị, . ọ na-eme! :)

    I am white/native American, and though the Native in me is a very small percentage, my skin tone is very dark and I look very much like a Native. I’ve been discriminated against by whites, by blacks, and by just about every race you can think of.

    DC Talk’s song Colored People sums up my thoughts quite nicely:
    We’re colored people and we live in a tainted place
    We’re colored people and they call us the human race
    We’ve got a history so full of mistakes
    And we are colored people who depend on a Holy grace.
    The media is very much to blame. But our own predispositions, our own actions perpetuate what the media feeds to us. If we would look past color, if we would see in ourselves the judgments we pass on others based on looks or actions, when we don’t even know themmaybe we could work to tear down these barriers and not give the media any more fodder.

    This case is not only about the SYG law it is also about the self defense argument. The child was in essence found guilty. This case is also about how the law views the responsibility of the person, GZ, who put themselves in harms way. Where does personal responsibility, common sense and self control play a part in this situation? When Rachel Jenteal (not sure of the spelling) was interviewed, she saidYour parents teach you that when someone suspicious is following you, you should run. No parent teaches their child to stand their. Ọ bụrụ na ha mere, they would have no child.TM was a child. He was described to police by GZ as a person in their late teens. This is not conjecture, this is fact. Trayvon was a child growing into adulthood. When GZ called police, he did the right thing, when he decided to go against the will of authority, he lost control and the situation turned out all wrong. Spiritual ex.: How many times have we prayed and asked God to help us handle a situation and we lean to our own understanding rather than listening to the true voice of authority to see us through. Trayvon is not here b/c GZ leaned to his own understanding. He took matters into his own hands after being given clear and concise instructions about what NOT to do. I wanted to know what GZ’s role as a volunteer neighborhood watch officer consisted of. I found this book at http://www.usaonwatch.org/assets/publications/0_NW_Manual_1210.pdf Please read page 27 of Chapter 6. This man overstepped his bounds and ran right OUT OF personal responsibility into trouble. He disobeyed direct instructions and confronted a frightened child, who was a young man and an athlete. He bit off more than he could chew when he stepped outside the will and instructions of authority. Suppose TM had been an experienced killer who took GZ’s gun and killed him instead? This tragic incident opened the door for a number of topics to be discussed. Including, but not limited to, àgwà, personal responsibility, The Stand Your Ground Law, what is the real definition of self defense, and most of all the re-evaluation how race should be viewed the minds of everyone. Everything seen in the darkness of our own hearts and minds will eventually come to light. This tragic and ridiculous chain of errors is meant to bring about a greater level of understanding, dialogue and awareness. This case has sent shock waves throughout the world. It is not an American history story, it is not Black history story, it is a human and civil rights story. No one deserves to die based upon stereotypical perceptions and a lack of self control.

    DUDE!! Ekele gị nke ukwuu maka ikenye a!! I posted something similar on my facebook wall. I feel we can move on from racism but yet we can still talk about it to fix the problem!! Not argue and continue to profile any race. I am a firm believer in God and this country must turn back to God. (2 Chronicles 7:14) We need more black people like you and I, who can step up and speak against the racism and educate one another. We should stand against the people who stir the racism up!!

    enweghị ajụjụ, there are those with ‘racialmotivations for what they dopositive or negative. Some assume the worst just because of the level of melanin. But I wonder if there’s something else going on in situations like this that reveals more of a cultural gap than a racial one. Ọmụmaatụ, if I see a woman walking down the street in very short shorts, low cut tank-top with breasts hanging out, lots of make-up, high heels (not good for walking), wdg, I will assume this is a woman who isto use an antiquated wordloose. This gives me zero right to physically or verbally assault her, to make suggestive remarks, etc. Contrast that with another woman’s attiremodest, but attractive pants, skirt, dress, etc. – right out of the LandsEnd (or pick your style) catalog. She COULD be just as loose as woman #1, but I think it’s unlikely.

    Likewise, if I see a young black man walking toward me dressed as a ‘gangbanger’ – I move aside and get nervous. It’s POSSIBLE he’s a local youth pastor and would share the Gospel with me sooner than say a hurtful word. But what’s with the ‘banger attire? ọzọ, a black man walking down the street in 1) Lands End attire 2) traditional African garb 3) work jeans/boots with white t-shirtI suddenly have all of my fears mitigated.

    My point is that attire is a form of cultural expression. And not all cultures are equal. If whatwhite” (or light brown, red, yellow) America sees in music videos, the evening news, newsweeklies, etc. of the young black man in trouble is what young black men who are upstanding members of the community wearthat will communicate a conflicting message.
    Imagine me wearing a t-shirt with a confederate flag on it and expecting blacks to just understand that I’m not a racist. I just love the Confederate South.

    Likewise, dress like a gangster, don’t be surprised when you’re confused with one.

    Wearing a ‘hoodiealone wouldn’t/shouldn’t do this of course. But folks who think they’re clothing/attire doesn’t communicate or (worse) will admit it does, but places the burden on the observer to flesh all the differences out is a fool.

  32. James Leezaghachi

    High profile cases like this sensationalize and underlying problem between what we faultfully callraces.

    As a white boy from suburbs of Detroit, I would probably respond the same way to Zimmerman following me, regardless of the activities I was up to.

    Zimmermans spiritual state impacts his view of the Lords command to …”Not resist an evil man.Likely, Trayvon Martin’s adherence to this command was lacking as well. As disciples of Christ, we should remember to not be surprised when the world acts likethe world.

    Our best weapon against social injustices and racial divides is to adhere to the commands of Christ.

    Thabiti Anyabwile gave a timely message in 2008 aboutBearing the Image”. It is worth a listenhttp://t4g.org/media/2010/04/bearing-the-image-identity-the-work-of-christ-and-the-church-session-ii/

    The majority of people have identities and lives that have been based on assumption regarding the notion of “race.” We need to change toward a more biblical theology of ethnicity. Na mbụ, it is important to define terms and use them properly, especially “race” versus “ethnicity.” The Christian needs to understand man’s unity in Adam, union with Christ and unity in the church.

  33. Rustyzaghachi

    We’ve ALL been on the receiving end of racism, probably. ọ bụrụ na ọ bụghị, we will. Someone from some other race is going to make a decision about us, based on how we look or sound.

    We’ve all been guilty of committing it, oke, to some small degree. Any time you see someone and make a judgmenteven if it’s kept internalbased on how that person looks or soundsthat’s prejudice.

    The 911 operator saidWe don’t need you to follow himThat’s enough for me. The trial would’ve never been needed and Trayvon would probably be getting more kisses from his Dad (as seen in pictures) if Zimmerman stayed hisbuttin the car AND on the phone tilthe cops came!!!

  35. Louiezaghachi

    Frankly, I am ashamed that some of these commentators call themselves Christian, I almost hope that some of them are not. Thank you so much Trip for putting your heart on this blog, apart of yourself and your life experiences that we do not know about or may not understand. I am a White, Male and 24 years of age and I have many black friends, very similar to Trip, who have been profiled wrongly and I have been in the presence of these attacks against my friends, in shock, feeling helpless. I think some of the commentators are sorely misinterpreting Trip’s words or using them as a sounding board for their personal agendas and politics. Trip hasn’t said anything about Zimmerman being a racist. Zimmerman made a wrong judgment that cost a young man his life, a fact that has changed one family forever, at least Zimmerman lives and breathes. And this event has triggered an outcry that forces everyone to examine their biases and to look at laws that are hurting us all. It makes me sick that people cannot simply see that the laws created to protect some like myself (with unearned privileges) do not apply to those who are viewed as theother”. Some have mentioned the law and say Zimmerman was justified to follow Trayvon but was he justified in God’s eyes to follow someone because he looked suspicious. In the end I pray Zimmerman comes to know Christ as his personal savior and turn his horrible choice into something positive that God can use to bring further healing. Nothing is impossible with God.

    • Nathanial Polingzaghachi

      How do you know Zimmerman wasn’t a Christian already? Did you watch the trial or listen to the soundbites. I think you make a lot of judgmental comments in this post about people’s Christianity. I know young white teenagers who have been profiled as well because they had tattoos. Stop making assumptions that this was a race case and assumptions about others hearts. Zimmerman could have had bad intentions but nothing led there in the trial when people got to hear the full phone calls, not the spliced ones that the media played to drum up a racial issue. Zimmerman faced a jury and was acquitted under self-defense. Maybe some people should start to question the music that African Americans listen to that promote violence over peace. Martin could have went back to the house, instead he chose to try to beat up Zimmerman.

    hello all. First and farmost I am a christian. Secondly I am an afirican-american woman. I’ve read the comments here and they do not surprise me. I am horrified by the violence in this country (the black on black, the judicial towards blacks,the crime element of minority youths of towards the general public, general public towards minoriity youths). To tell you the truth I am scared,and this is why……….when we as a society gloss over the societal stains racism has caused we are in grave danger of returning our society back to that in which it was in the 50’s. Ọzọkwa, when we think for a second that America has reached some state of a race free utopia we are in grave danger of repeating the same ill that plagued the nation 50 afọ ndị gara aga. I think people like to gloss it over because it’s easier than facing it and confronting it. So for you it might not be a race thing, because you will never have to hear your elders discuss how the details reminds the days of their youth,experiencing things you and i could never dream of

    .For you it might not be a race thing because you will never bear inside your body a black male child and wonder will he live to see 21. For you it might not be a race thing because the mere look of you is and will never be seen as a threat. If i had those options it would not be race thing for me either. My heart goes out to all those who have been victims of crime due to violence. I never will and never have condoned violence. Otú ọ dị, also will never condone a system that condones shooting somebody based on appearances,or possible reasons why they are out at night,. I will never condone a system that will take my money is accepted,but I or my son is not. I will never condone the state of things as they are. America is no utopia. I feel the effects of being a minority in America everyday,and even in the church.

      I’m a Christian too. I agree that racism still exists. Nke bụ eziokwu bụ, it will always exist. The enemy will make sure of that. But thisyou will never understand my sideposturing doesn’t help. We have white idiots that perpetuate racism. And that is what they are: stupid racists. Then there are black idiots that perpetuate the stereotype that promotes the profiling. The focus should be all of the rest of us rising above these idiots and coming together and repair the divide. Change the narrative. As for young black males… Chaị. I have no idea how a community deals with that, but I know there are answers out there. I know God has a plan and a solutionand it isn’t division based on how someone looks. His solution is about UNITY, love and restoration.

      • dismayedzaghachi

        hi bergyman. I respect and agree with, your views. One note though- my view is notyou will never understand my siderather its a shedding of light on the why this not aboutmy sideor your side. This is about the in-just patterns this country has yet to rectify.This is the lot that America has given to minorities. elders reliving horrifying experiences with jim crow. Children afraid they will be targeted by some crooked form of the judicial system. Male family members harassed for DWB'(driving while black) I have worked tirelessly for many years unifying folks and bringing racial awareness to the church and to the un-churched alike. I’m not saying understand my side .I’m saying respect it. I WILL continue my work to shed light on the subject,because that’s what GOD intended me to do and the church needs it. With that said- turning a blind eye to the ills of injustice be it racial,social economical,regarding abortion or sex trafficing,is also very wrong. It’s also something I can not do. On a brighter note I have seen ,confession, and forgiveness between races on a massive scale at Christians prayer events and it was beautiful time of respect, confession,mgbaghara (on both sides) OHHH was that something to behold it was like pslms 133:1-3 in real time. Feet were washed,tears were shed, and all parties(black,white,latino,and asian) repented before GOD for ought against the other. I long for the day whenbrother love will bind man to manas mentioned in the great hymn ode to joy. I work and pray to no end to see it happen.

        • bergymanzaghachi

          Thank you for your reply. I didn’t mean to imply you were doing theyou don’t understand…” thing, I just meant I don’t want that response being the answer. I hear that a great deal when I’ve tried to join in the conversation regarding some of these problems and how we as a society can overcome them. I think there HAS to be understanding and solutions and change on both sides. I agree with you. It is happening. I just hate how long it’s taking and all the harmed/lost lives and lost potentialand I HATE the division. Thank you for fighting the good fight. I hope you know that I don’t pretend to understand the emotions, I am just looking to getting ways to the next stepsrecovery, healing, ịdị n'otu.

        • dismayedzaghachi

          ee. i understand and we need you in the fight . I’m sorry that some one devalued your contribution to the conversation and/ or solution to these problems. and I apologize on their behalf.Would you forgive all of us who treated those who want to help find a better way as if they don’t matter in this discussion just because his or her skin wasn’t black. I believe we each have something to contribute to the other person ,experiences to be gained,love to be shared,encouragement and fellowship to be had (black,white,yellow,brown,blue etc). i firmly believe that. God bless you bergyman…..one day pslms 133:1-3 will be a reality if not here on the earth ,definitely in the one to come.

    hey Njem, Love ya and all, but honestlyit sounds like on the issue of race, you have some bitterness. I am sorry your skin color has made you the receiving end of some discrimination. My skin color has leaved me on the receiving end of some discrimination from the black community, (although I have never been tagged by the police). Its a part of life, nwoke. I just wish I were discriminated for the cross, not for the color of my skin in those instances. ọ na-eme, it’s not beautiful, but we have to forgive those who do it and praise God the father for His love and diversity. And not be bitter, nwoke. Let go of those past instances. Just like you shouldn’t treat others wrongly, you must forgive and free yourself from the temptation of victimization when you are judged. Everyone is judged. If not by skin color, by body shape, location, afọ, etc. I have been judged countless times for being from Florida in the midwest. And for being young. Etc. We will always be judged, ya know? We must forgive and show love to those who are ignorant. :) God bless ya, njem!

    • Nicolezaghachi

      By pointing out that racism exists against black people does not nullify that black people can discriminate too. We live in a fallen world and all those actions are wrong. Working to open dialogue does not mean that unforgiveness exists. (Hello, Trip Lee’s wife is not black lol) Otú ọ dị, biblically, peace does not equal passive. There are MANY calls in the Word of God to be active about injustice and oppression in all forms. We should be active against social justice, ALL FORMS with the ultimate goal of showing the beautiful contrast of Jesus Christ in this fallen world.

  38. bergymanzaghachi

    We’re asking people to be superhuman. We all use information (some based on our own situations, some third party reliable, and some third party unreliable) to tell us what to do in certain parts of town, and around people that look a certain way. We all profile. The blonde girl Lizzi below may have had people view her as stupid or easy based on how she looks. Fair? Probably not. She has a choice, she can either try to convince all the other blondes out there to act smart, be smart to not perpetuate the stereotype OR she can just try and do her best to not be linked with thetype”. My guess (and I could be way off) is that the store owner commonly was shoplifted by people that looked/acted like Dinah Robinsonfair? Ọbụghị ncha ncha. But is it the store owner who is acting irresponsibly? Let me say it this wayif person #1 looks/dresses/acts like people who have committed crimes in their store or in their neighborhood. (I’m making up hypotheticals here) The objective statistics say: 7 out of 10 times when this happens, a crime is committed. You may say, they still shouldn’t profile. but at what point in the statistics do you say, I’m still going to think the best of this person. 9 out of 10? how about 99/100? How about 999/1000? What if you have an Arab family in your neighborhood and you see him unloading dozens of bags of fertilizer into his garage? Maybe he just likes his grass to be really green. Are we supposed to always assume the best in people?

    My view on this is that we have a racially divided and politically divided and economically divided country. We can’t really do much about the economicshistory always tells us that we have rich and poor. But politically and racially we can say “No”. I have no problem with having pockets of people banding together in America because of interests or because they come from the same country and they share traditions of that country. But I think this is what happens when we have a bunch of people who have banded together (probably because of outside and inside factors) because of how they look on the outside, I think we will continue to have problems untilblack peopleexist in all parts of a city, vote both sides of the aisle politically, work in all different industries, don’t require/get special hiring/voting laws, go to college at the same rates, and marry people not based on skin color. The media wants an emotional issue. The parties want an emotional issue (to spur a strong voter turnout). The challenge is do we allow them to play usthis isn’t an US versus THEM argument. This is awe need to all play together”. This is awe need to accept that there are idiots out there that will assume we are who they think we are, but I’m going to ignore them because I know who I am.

    We had black foster kids (7 na 9 yrs old). The 7 yr old girl told usEveryone knows that white people hate black people and that black people hate white people.That made me sad. Someone taught her that with words. At 7 yrs old, that become part of her makeup. We need to stop following the media/politic rhetoric and try and build bridges and not jump to conclusions about people and when people make conclusions about us, we need to let it fall off our backs because holding grudges only increases the racial divide and we need this rift repaired.

  39. Rumplestiltskinzaghachi

    A very highly-charged trial, and not w/o reason. Our present dealings, na “whateverwill always be tainted with our disagreeable past. I had parents, that apparenty werecolor blind”, and for this I am thankful. When I was about three, and playing with my neighborhood friends one day in the sandbox, this is what I sawone by one, a parent would come up, and say something likecome on Johnny, we’ve got to go” ma ọ bụ, “suzie, time for your nap”. One by one, they all left, except one. I didn’t think anything about it that day, but some thirty or forty years later, I realized what happened: that last little boy was black. I tell you, when I realized exactly WHAT happened that day, I was shocked, and angrythat boy that the other kids were beingprotectedfrom was my friend. I did not know what “black” was. Still amazing.
    ugbu a, m 71, and have had a one-on-one relationship with Jesus Christ, for 37 afọ. THAT, more than any discussion of “agbụrụ” has really opened my eyes, let me explainin the book of Ephesians, it says that God, made of the Jews, and also of the gentiles, ONE NEW MAN. Folks, this means you, and me, as long as we have that relationship with Christ. When we STEP INTO CHRIST, weput on”, ma ọ bụ “come intothe ONE NEW MAN. Ya mere,. OUTSIDE of Christ, we can put on an act, we can try to be good, do the right thing, etc. But out natural strength will always run out, and we WILL fail again, anytime we areoutside of Christ”, or not under His influence. Make sense?
    Outside of Christ, there IS NO LASTING UNITYotherwise we would have had that, long ago. Ya mere,, come into Christ, where I am no longer white, I’m your brother, and I’ve got your back.

  40. Molliezaghachi

    I agree that racism is an issue. But saying that it is only against the african americans is wrong. I have been profiled many many times in my life. I am a young white girl.I have blonde curly hair and blue eyes and a southern accent. I have been cuffed by the cops because they were looking for a suspect. I have had a gun held to my head by someone intending to kill me. I have gone completely without. I have had black friends quit speaking to me because I am white andcan’t possible understand”. We all have the same struggles. We all face the fact that very few people are going to try to get to know us before they judge us. My husband and I have five children of our own and recently adopted two of his cousins who happen to be black. I can honestly tell you that as much as we have been to the store as a family no black people have ever even remotely been kind to us or truly acknowledged us until we adopted these two boys. As if the level of pigmentation they have in their skin makes them different from us. We are all equal are we not? Then why is this still a white vs black thing? Why is it simply not a community of all people coming together and acknowledging that it is at it’s core a heart problem and not a race problem? When my girls grow up and begin to look for their husbands I will not care if that man is black or white or chinese. I will only ask two things, does he love the Lord with all of his heart, and does he have Jesus in his heart. If the answer to these two things are yes then I will know he will be good to my girls. They same will go for my sons when they look for a wife. To make everything a race issue is dangerous no matter what side is doing it. Let us just rise above and call it what it is….a heart problem.

  41. LolaMitche2011zaghachi

    Having a multi-racial family I completely understand many different perspectives. I will say thatwhiteAmerica will just simply never understand thecoloredperspective. How could they? People will show more sympathy with people they can relate to. Blacks can name 100 different cases of racism in their own lives, while whites will also name 100 different situations and justifications for why they believe what they believe. With more whites numerically in jail than any race, and more blacks percentage wise in jail then whites, it’s obvious crimes can be done by anyone. We all just see what we want to see. With that being said, I would say we all need to just strive to do the best for our communities and pull them up. Black Americans should now know that they cannot expect a sympathetic ear from whites, and Whites should know that that they will never understand the experiences people of color go through. And honestly that’s okay.

    • Davezaghachi

      Lola, I think to useblacks” & “ọcha” as you have in this post in such broad terms is very much overstated. African Americans are not the enemy of Caucasians. Caucasians are not the enemy of African Americans. Individuals with sin in their hearts wrongfully judge one another. It plays itself out in between all different kinds of nationalities because of the pride of individuals who choose to flesh that pride out through their skin color. I see it between neighboring Asian countries here in Thailand as well. It’s surely not limited to African Americans & Caucasians. Please don’t let the ways you’ve been hurt add to the lack of reconciliation in this matter. Change can really happen.
      Christ died to save sinners. And that is where the change starts when it comes to these things you mentioned. Individuals getting their old selves crucified & given new lenses to see the world. It will happen from person to person as they get their prideful, narrow worldview rocked by Christ’s Kingdom way.
      Christ bless you, Lola.

    @gdoggydog05 wrote “all my black christian
    brothers focus on martin, and don’t even acknowledge the fact that it is wrong in the first place to choose this trajedy as more important those the hundreds of similar trajedys that occur daily.”- You are assuming that AA Christians
    view this tragedy above all the others. The fact is that this case has been in the news, and therefore, it will naturally be a topic of conversation more so than other things that people are unaware of. The apostle Paul chose, at one time, to highlight the sin of Herod (marrying his brother’s wife) over all the other sin that was occurring at that time. He specifically called Herod out.
    While we know that Paul did not hesitate to call people out on their sin or hypocrisy, we read only of a few times of him calling out certain names. Is this sin? No, he called Herod out because of his status and position. He called Peter out (site
    name) because of his leadership in the early church. It is not sin to point to this case and discuss racism. This case has had a dominate status in the media, and so people talk about it.

    • gdoggydog05zaghachi

      im sorry ksi should have been more clear. i’m not assuming…. i’m speaking on all the black christians that i know or have read, etc….. and i didn’t mean that they are prioritizing it more…. what i meant is this: of all the comments black christians have made, i have not seen any that criticize the media for putting a certain case on a pedastool on the basis of race…. sorry about that. I don’t know if they do or not. I think the media is guilty of this and am surprised that my black brothers and sisters have commented on other parts of the case and seemingly supported the media in their display, rather than dissent, even if only with their words.

    Dear T.L.,

    I am a 32 year old white female. I was just explaining Trayvon’s story to my 12 year old daughter. I explained how I feel about all of it. I read your blog above. I respect you, and I also feel that this issue needs to be discussed. I look at it like my marriage, in a wayIf my husband and I have a conflict, we work it out until we have an understanding. We are two separate bodies, but by marriage we are one (my husband and I), just as all of us are put into categories, whether we like it or not. I teach my children that color doesn’t matter, character is what matters, but nonetheless I am white, you are black and we can’t change that. It is a fact about ourselves, just like right now I am wearing a red shirt and if maybe all people wore red shirts everyday, we could get passed all of this, be treated equal by each other, and all be calledred shirt people”, but that’s not going to happen. We all need to come to an understanding about each other like in my marriage. Conflicts need to be fixed, “Don’t go to bed angry”. Our races have been in conflict for too long. We’ve never really come to an understanding, or have learned to respect each other fullynow our bottles of emotion have hit their pressure limits and we’re exploding with irrationality. Our races have never really married each other, so to speak. It’s time to get marriedYou explained in your blog why you have been emotionally invested in the Trayvon Martin Case. That this is the story about you, your father, your grandfather, that you have been racially profiled. Let me tell you that, as a white woman, I treat every stranger with caution regardless of their skin color. I lock my doors, clench my purse, and children tighter no matter who I walk past on the street. There are dangerous white rapist, serial killers, kidnapping, etc. crime happening everywhere just as much as there are in any other skin color there isI want to help change hearts and minds. Just because someone is profiled, doesn’t make it racist. It is because there are sick evil monsters in every color and we have to be cautious. Ya mere,, if we lived in a safe happy world where everyone was kind and loving, we would not have to worry I guess, but this isn’t Heaven. God Bless you, T.L. Love and Peace be with you.

  45. Christopher Zavalazaghachi

    I think the whole Zimmerman/Martin thing has shown me that it is pretty easy for me to judge and just assume that certain people are justplaying the race card.

    But I respect Trip. And I want to take his words to heart and try to sympathize with the perspectives and experiences of others. I pray that God will expand my view and my compassion. And I pray that the power of the Gospel will unite the Church and help all of us to find our identities in Christ and not color or class or country

  46. TJzaghachi

    You’re assuming it was based on color. Did you forget there had been young black males breaking into homes where zimm lived? This had nothing to do with color just for the sake of it.

  47. laura merronezaghachi

    Ee, lets move on and get all of this behind us. Whatever happened that day, can you forgive and forget? Can we alllove our enemyas a Christian whoever that may be? Can we honestly sayvengeance is the Lord’snot ours? I am a white woman but have been through some bad experiences myself but I’ve gotten over it by forgiving all parties involved. Our nation needs healing not more tears. The more we forgive, the better off we will be and the racism feelings will fade. ugbu a, if only Al Sharpton and the news media will quit bringing up all this stuff and opening the wounds, we will be all right

  48. Sophiazaghachi

    Chaị! It is so refreshing to hear Kingdom perspective on this issue. We get so wrapped up in arguing with each other, that we forget to ask God what He thinks. We forget that the answers are already in His word. We forget that we should trust in no one and nothing but Him. Finally, we forget that those who seek Him, will be those who find the truth.

    Racism is truly an issue in this country. It’s something that we cannot run from, but that we must face and change. We have to know that we cannot change without Jesus Christ. Racism is a reality that is reflected in our justice system, in how we think about each other, and in how we treat each other. Until the hatred is removed from our hearts, racism will continue to creep into our decisions. The past will be the past, when it is no longer present in our future. Until then, we certainly should not move on.

  49. Karla Willowszaghachi

    Amen Trip. I am half Colombian, half English, it’s so easy for me as I am white, I had a friend for a while who was a neo natzi from Ireland. He did not realize I was half Colombian for a long time. When I realized his beliefs, I told him I was half Colombian, he refused to believe me. Had I had darker skin, he would never have become my friend in the first place. He remained friends with me. I hope God used this to change his perspective, we have since lost touch through day to day life, but not because of skin color. I can’t imagine how painful and damaging it is to be continually judged by the color of your skin. My Son loves 116. He is only four and has no idea of racism yet. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being great role models to both my sons. As far as my four year old is concerned, guys who look like rappers love Jesus and are safe :)

  50. Kayzaghachi

    The more I read and hear about the Trayvon Martin case. The more I realize that most can not look at it from a realistic/factual point of view. We often look at these cases through a skewed lens that carries baggage from own past. I speak as a woman whose great-grandfather was an illegal immigrant from Mexico, and yet has been challenged by Christ to embrace The Truth, not the truth as “m” see it. Christ asks that we set aside our identity including our ethnicity, sex, denominational affiliation, etc (Ndị Galeshia 3:28), in order to see our world through the lens of Christwhich embodies all truth.

    Trayvon Martin, according to his friend Rachel Jeantel racially profiled George Zimmerman calling him aCreepy a** cracke,.” and then proceeded to brutally assault GZ. Understand, I am in no way defending Zimmerman because he took the law into his own hands, which ended in the death of Martin. My problem with this case, has been the pass that is often given to minorities for racist comments and behaviors. The truth in this case is that both men were out of line in their behavior toward one another, and yet TM gets a pass because he is a man of color. I am sorry but God does not honor that mentality, because it is one that is twisted and perverted.

    BOTH MEN were equally wrong in how they responded to each other, and yet we care little about ALL the facts. We just care about the facts that best support the way we want to think.

    I am finding racism is a real problem in our culture, but the reality is it is not just a white problem, it is just as prevalent in people of color as well. Racism, will never end as long as we are concerned only about ourown” ndị mmadụ. I truly believe this is the message Martin Luther King Jr. preached, before it was tarnished by the likes of Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson. Unity and oneness can only happen when men and women truly see through the lens of Christ, because as Galatians 3:28 points out we are ALL ONEIN” Christ. I personally believe anytime we chose to view ourselves outside of that framework, than we either knowingly or unknowingly erect barriers and dividers. Bottom line Christians, racism can stop with you, as long as you truly embrace Christ’s perspective. Ma ọ bụghị ya, you are left with justifying a false reality that continues to erect barriers between you and others.

    We need to ask ourselves do want the Truth, or are we only interested in seeing through our distorted lens, where truth is relative, and is only accepted if it fits into our framework?

  51. LaRonezaghachi

    Brothers and Sisters,

    What saddens me more than anything is how readingsomeof the comments posting on this wonderful website, I find it hard to see the difference between here, YouTube or any other site where folks just like to argue their points and dismiss grace and peace. Still, much better comments than usual. What Trip was trying to convey seems to have gotten lost in most of the comments.

    As far as the killing of Trayvon, just notice how its almost never a person of color, especially black, that comes to the defense of Zimmerman. NOw, everything doesn’t have to do with race, but the things that do should not be so easily disregarded. The black experience in America is so downplayed. Gịnị mere? Should Blacks just get over the fact that their ancestors were property of men and women in this country? Should the fact that government propaganda literally called for the discrimination of them be forgotten? Should they forget that the Constitution literally stated that they are only 3/5 of a man? Of equal importance, should people who aren’t persons of color really act oblivious to these same facts of American history as if there are not still systems of oppression (not just profiling) that directly effect the black community and other minority groups? It is so easy to tell people to get over it or to point out Black success in an attempt to undermine race relations in this HISTORICALLY racist country. But when you are the benefactor of racism (even if unknowingly) and you are not affect by it negatively, you inevitably have a viewpoint different and sometimes even defensive when it comes to race. Thank the Lord that Christ unifies ALL people. But still, churches remain the most segregated places in America. Thank you all for reading and all be Blessed.

  52. thefollowerzaghachi

    I have read through this entire thing the comments, arguments, sympathy statements. It all amazes me your intelligence and personal experience about all these things. Like in the beginning Trip said don’t stop talking about it, Otú ọ dị, I’m quite sure he didn’t mean argue.

    I am an 18 year old white girl, my best friend is an 18 year old black girl, i have no black relatives, my church is completely white, i have many black friends, and i worked at a camp for underprivileged children where more than half the campers are black….i have seen the way you all put up some facts about your life to make people understand you better so those are a few facts about my lifeI’ve learned about the racial issue and it disturbs me its even made me mad enough to break my hand from punching things when hearing about the struggles some people have gone through. its okay to get mad over things like murder, racism, lies, and hypocrisy, but it is definitely NOT okay to treat each other with the disrespect and ‘i know betterattitudes i have seen on here. I may not know a whole lot about the world and all of its struggles but i know a few things. I know that first of all God created all man equal and as friends of those treated with racism we can and should stick up for them. I also know that God is the Righteous Judge and many of you who argued on here said you were christianshame on youthis case has brought such a division and not not just between white/black/hispanic people between every person who thinks he/she knows better than everyone who doesn’t agree with them. We are children of God, the only one who really knows what happened the night Treyvon was killed, so who are we to argue who’s right or wrong?

    John 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

    I’m not hear to tell you my opinion on the case and i’m not hear to judge you. I felt compelled to remind you that right or wrong we are called to love people and to let go of selfish pride over winning an argument that isn’t ours to win. John 8:7 came to mind within the first ten comments and stayed there until the end. If you’re going to argue do it in a loving way or, here’s a funny thought, if you know that you can’t argue in a way that is still respectful DON’T ARGUE! It’s not up to us to condemn or set free anyone and frankly its idiotic to act like it is. Thank you for taking a stand and sharing your opinions! Like I said I’m sure that you are all intelligent and enjoyable people but if we don’t show God’s love even through our opinions why in the world would people think christianity is worthwhile when we don’t act different from the rest of the world?

  53. Itozaghachi

    We are believers, Bearers of the image of our Lord Jesus Christ, people who understand that we and ALL people are wicked, sinful, redeemed only by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ who took the wrath of the Father, because of our sin, on the cross for us. What do we have without truth? The TRUTH should be what governs this conversation, not opinion. Our history tells the story and provides the answers if we are willing to be honest.

    I won’t even provide my racial identity. Because it is irrelevant to this discussion. I am a lover of the Lord, and someone who studied law, justice, sociology, and law enforcement.

    Look at the facts and the stats. The American Justice system is far from colorblind. She badly reeks of the sins of oppression, partiality, and wickedness. Classism is just as much a cause of it as racism is. But to say racism does not exist, or did not play a part in the outcome of this case, is a mistake. It is an opinion that chooses to completely ignore the history of our justice system in favor of what it would like to be true.

    Racism exist. It is alive and well and active.
    ekele, we serve a God who knows everything. Who is powerful to heal those who will let Him. Who is faithfulness to heal bitterness and resentment. And who has given us power through prayer and action.

    Disciple your children in truth. The truth is that their race will be part of their identity, (and determine how some people will view them) for as long as they live.

    Glory to God who looks not at what man does.

  54. PastorNormzaghachi

    The thing I believe that God wants us to do with this incident and all those other ones we continue to hear about is what Trip said. Pray for all parties involved to either get saved out of what has happened or get right if they are Christians. What everyone has missed is that God Almighty called Trayvon’s number for whatever reason He had. NOBODY was going to change that that night. God said, “Trayvon, it is over for youjust like he did for Tupac and many others. IF Trayvon was saved, glory to God he is now with Jesus. ọ bụrụ na ọ bụghị, sadly he is burning in Hell. Cheta, Eccl. 12:13 ” Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

    I entered this website, read the various blogs posted and was encouraged by various posts until I came to this one. The comment thread that ensued below was both disturbing and heart wrenching. Instead of reading calm, patient, wise and God centered comments, I suddenly found myself engulfed in a frenzy of racism and hatred. And all this by supposed Christians who seem to think it’s appropriate to tell each other who is or is not a Christians and whether or not their prayers will reach the ears of God or as Marvin put it: “…your prayers probably won’t make it past your ceiling.Many of you say repeatedly that you are not on the attack and do not wish to offend anyone, that you simply have your own opinions and that yes, they are strong. Fine, we all have our own opinions and we all feel strongly on certain issues whether or not we find others who agree. That is a right and a freedom we have as Americans to enjoy and I hope it is never taken from us. But to constantly bash another brother or sister in Christ and to preach at each other as if you yourselves know best is pure hypocrisy. We as Christians should know better than anyone that we are simply human, we make mistakes, we act in arrogant pride, we are blinded to certain issues simply by our own sin and no matter how hard we try, those blinders will always be there because we are fallen, sinful, humans. It is for that reason that God is our judge. It is not our opinions that matter, but God’s and God’s alone. To act towards each other so hatefully and yet call yourselves “ụmụnna” is pathetic at best.
    Marvin, to be honest I had to stop reading about half way down the posts simply because I couldn’t stomach the way you continued to treat yourbrothers and sistersall the while sticking to your guns, becoming more and more inflamed and then claiming that you weren’t upset. Read your own posts, sir. Whether I agree with you or not does not matter, what matters is how you treat your brother. Read through the posts, you were by far (at least until I stopped reading about halfway down) the most volatile person on this thread. You tell others they have no right to tell you how to pray and then you suggest that God does not even hear their prayers. Who are you to suggest such a thing? You are not God. Come down off your throne and then speak to your brothers in love instead of impatience and anger.
    Racism is ugly and I see it everywhere and constantly. I hate it for so many different reasons and on so many different levels. But there will be no healing this disease until ALL sides recognize that there is racism no matter what color your skin is AND that not all people hate other people simply because their skin or their culture differ from their own. As a Christian I am very sad to see how racism has effected my brothers and sisters. I am sad that we have to see a “akpa ókè agbụrụ” around every corner and just assume that people are racist because their skin is white. We should see other Christians with many colors and cultures. Stop screaming “akpa ókè agbụrụ” at each other and simply say “nwanne”. I see more racism becoming a problem each day simply because one side or the other cries “akpa ókè agbụrụ” without even knowing the person they addressing. If you see a brother or sister acting in a racist way then by all means address it and speak to that person, privately. But stop crying wolf when there is no wolf.
    Love one another as Christ loved the church. That is all we need to remember when it comes to dealing with one another.
