We are living in a very tragic and intellectually bankrupt time. The Black Lives Matter movement is a clear example of this moral, intellectual and spiritual bankruptcy.

I have struggled with how to address this problem because of the clear threat that if anyone does so he will be labelled as a racist. Several actions by this organized group largely funded by leftists such as George Soros and applauded by our then President Barack Obama (who should have promoted and spoke up for racial harmony in keeping with what he promised when running for the presidency) actually led to violence and hostility to police. The very term “Black Lives Matter” raises the question as to what about other lives? Do only Black Lives matter? What about brown lives? What about yellow lives? What about white lives? These are legitimate questions in the light of those who are arguing that Black lives matter.
