Turning the Tides 2015: Restore the Dream – live blog and video

Dr. Alveda King, Niger Innis, and Wayne Dupree

Much of this conversation focused around racism and perspectives…  Each speaker spoke impromptu about various issues, so there was not a specific area addressed and some of these comments were a bit meandering…

Dr. King brought up that Ferguson may have been less about racism than it was about economic issues – police officers having to write so many tickets, et al – that affects those in the lower economic strata…

Niger noted that America is not a country, it’s a dream…

What happened in France is a sign of the political correct cowardess of Western Nations and the terrorists have used this to succeed.. The Left has pushed and promoted Political segregation of so many groups… Noted the Robert Mugabe is not allowed to retire by his backers as they make great profit from his existence – so many in the Conservative movement allow this to continue and it will destroy us…

Wayne recounted when Jesse Jackson came to speak at his school – it was like the Lord came to town (similar to how some view Al Sharpton and Obama)…

Dr.King noted that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are different – Jesse is stuck and the verdict is not in for Al.  She asked when folks joined the TEA Party, did anybody stop talking to you?  Many responded yes!  She was then somewhat all over the place but noted that for those who say, “black lives matter” they need to stop aborting all the black babies…

She suggested that one the issue of homosexuality, we have been too mean.  Don’t hate the people, recognize it is about the Devil… When speaking to people who are Gay, she suggested that “f you were born that way (homosexual) be born again…”  Don’t deny racism exists in America…  Acts 17:26 ‘from one man, He made all nations’, hence we are brothers and sisters.  When Abraham and Sara tried to help God bring forth children, they instead created two nations that remain at war.  We must realize we are of one blood and God can bring us back together… Watch movie Selma – not historically accurate, but a good start…

Niger noted that Jay Z is Obama’s BFF and used as a role model – unrepentant former drug dealer and killed his own people – he was a pharmacist helping people with their pain…  The President is African (no slave blood in him) – Niger is an American who happens to be black.  “Hands up, don’t shoot” should be “Pants up, don’t loot”.

Is NAACP still beneficial?  Dr. King, there are still leaders in that organization who believe the Bible.  Niger just got elected to the Board of the NAACP and there still are a lot of conservative believers there.

How can we restore the leadership of the Black Church – realize the difference between the political Black Church and the real Black Church.  The political church is often based upon a single individual rather than a focus on God.  We must let the real Black Churches know they must get involved in the political sphere.
