We live in a society that has gotten away from God. Specifically, African Americans are held to a higher standard, because the race was enslaved in this country. Like the children of Israel, the majority of the race is expected to repent for their rebellion and not worshiping God. Black families should repent for not holding a standard of pure holiness. It's time to call all black men and black women to repent for not being a positive example for the youth and raising them to fully accept and obey complete morals and values. We cannot ever have peace until the majority of African Americans repent for idolizing white America and not worshiping God. Dr. Martin Luther King was born and then died over 40 years ago and although, he left the right concept for peace, African Americans lack unity among themselves. Peace comes from God and the only way to receive it is to totally surrender and repent for disobedience.
