The left is telling you that I am a racist, a sexist, and support systemic racism, whatever that is.
I am a white (Caucasian) male who is a Christian and a Conservative. Being a Christian and a Conservative teaches me that being a racist and a sexist is in direct violation of my beliefs.
A racist is defined as 1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
A sexist is defined as 1. Discrimination based on gender, especially discrimination against women.
2. The belief that one gender is superior to the other, especially that men are superior to women.
When I say I am a Christian, I mean that I belief in the Grace of God, that Jesus is the Son of God in the Trinity, and only accepting and acknowledging that because Jesus shed his blood, died, and rose from the dead, can I be accepted as righteous in the eyes of God and spend eternity in the presence of God. I believe that the Bible is the word of God that provides guidance and instruction for me.
When I say I am a Conservative, I mean that I belief that people are born equal and rights and liberties come from the Creator and not man nor government. Because people are born equal, that is that there is no royalty nor hierarchy designated because of the family into which a person was born nor based on skin color or national heritage, all have the same rights and liberties. Being a Conservative, I believe in limited government. Government is never to dictate choices for individuals, but individuals are free to make their own choices and be responsible for those choices. As a Conservative I believe that individualism is always better than collectivism, or a person should only be regarded as an individual and not segregated based on factors such as sex, race, or national origin.
The Bible tells me that God created woman to be a companion to man. A companion is another who is not identical to but whose differences compliment. Each has their own characteristics, each is best suited for different functions, and because of those individual characteristics each enhances the other. Neither was created to be a slave to the other but was created to compliment the other. The Bible tells me that I am to love my companion as Christ loved the Church. Christ was willing to and did die for the Church. I, as a Christian, would be a hypocrite if I was a sexist.
As a Conservative I believe all are born equal. If I believed my liberties or rights were greater because I was born a male, I would a hypocrite. I would be saying I had greater liberties and rights simply because when I was conceived, my sex was designated to be male. As an individualist, I believe all are created equal, male, and female are created with equal rights and liberties.
As a Christian I cannot be a racist. Martin Luther King, Jr. expressed the Christian view when he stated the worth of an individual is based on the content of their character and not the color of their skin. The Bible tells me that Christ came to seek and to save those which are lost. The Bible does not say Christ came to seek and to save anybody based on the color of their skin or their national origin. The Bible tells me to love all and to be a witness to all. The Bible does not say I should only love and be a witness to those of a certain skin color or national origin. As a Christian, I am a hypocrite if I treat anybody based on their skin color or national origin.
As a Conservative, I believe in individualism. I do not put people into categories based on skin color or national origin. I believe all individuals are free to make choices and the individual is responsible for the consequences of their choices. I believe individuals should be self-reliant and not government reliant, regardless of characteristics such as skin color or national origin.
As a Christian and a Conservative, I am confused by the term systemic racism. I see this as a politically correct term used to create hate. No system makes its own rules. The rules of any system are made by people. It is people who make rules to benefit or to punish based on sex or skin color. Racism and sexism are brought about by collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats, all virtually the same) who place individuals into groups, thus denying the character of an individual but recognizing them only as clogs in a group. Collectivists do this because the collectivists purpose is to bring about conflict and hate.
