INGRATITUDE ATTITUDE OF BLACK PEOPLE
By Akin Ojumu
Black people are ingrates. At the slightest provocation, they are quick to spill out onto the streets to protest one injustice or another in American society. These thankless agitators have conveniently forgotten all the good things the good White folks have done for their kind over the centuries.
Bombed out on the intoxicating Kool-Aid of the Black Lives Matter hysteria, they choose to be amnesic to the benevolence of White slave owners who, out of their kindheartedness, built huts and shacks of worship for their foreparents during the period of their indentured servitudes on Southern slave plantations.
Thank God for good white men like Pastor Mike Keller who, at the risk of being lynched by the black mob on the social media circular firing squad, summoned the courage to remind these ungrateful descendants of slaves of the magnanimity of White people towards black slaves. This courageous white missionary put his own precious white fat neck on the chopping block to teach a bunch of self-obsessed megalomaniac people a rich history lesson.
Last month, while preaching at the Fairbank Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, Pastor Keller took the colored people on a trip down memory lane to the Southern plantations, to the time when black slaves enjoyed gainful employment as cotton pickers for their slave masters.
In his sermon that has, predictably, gone viral, Pastor Mike Keller reminded black people how their foreparents behaved themselves when they were hired hands on the cotton farms two hundred years ago.
“One hundred and fifty years ago, or 200 years ago, when the Blacks were slaves, did they ever go to Washington, D.C. and have a rally—200 years ago—to protest against slavery? Did they? No,” he said. “What did they do? Well, a lot of good people in the plantations would say, ‘Hey, it’s wintertime. Let us help build a church for you, dear folks.’ And they loved them and taught them how to read so they can read the Bible.
“And here’s what the Blacks did about 150 years ago: They humbled themselves. They prayed. They sought God’s face, and they turned from their wicked ways, and God made slavery illegal through several white presidents, right? It worked, didn’t it? They didn't protest. Maybe there’s a place for protests. I don't know.”
Thank you, Pastor Keller, for saying out loud what many good white people like yourself are saying under their breath in the dark corners of their bedrooms. Gone are the days when colored people knew their place in American society ruled by white supremacy. In those good old days, the blacks honored the master-slave relationship.
Back then, colored people knew that the white race was the superior race meant to be served by the lesser races comprised of black Africans, red Indians, and yellow Asians. They knew to fall in line and to do as they were told. When told to jump, their only response was, “How high?”
As the saying goes, “Good things come to those who are docile.” The servility of the black slaves was eventually rewarded. Because they chose humility and prayer over agitation and troublemaking, God used the good slave-owning white people to let them go from the cotton fields.
This is the important lesson these colored people of today need to learn. If only they’ll just shut the hell up and obey their white masters, they’ll begin to enjoy the same benefits as their forefathers.
