What if the Syrians who are being slaughtered were Caucasians? Would we Americans only be spectators? And what if the black Christians being murdered because of their faith were white Europeans instead? Would we scan the news item and turn the page as if they don’t matter?
Not all Christians are defined by the tiny percentage that are whack jobs. Neither are all Muslims crazed killers.
I can only see me when I look inward, I can’t and don’t want to see what makes you tick. But, I think almost all of us blessed citizens of the United States are at a minimum a tad prejudiced. And, since the majority of our D.C. Reps and Senators are rich white men and women, our official government positions are skewed too.
But…. Should we be pouring billions in foreign aid into countries and groups, some of which don’t even pretend to be our friends?
Last, will anyone with influence in Washington take our national spending spree head on? Will someone stand flat footed and tell the citizenry the plain truth? I doubt it.
