In their fight for equality (something they already have) black people want a different set of rules than others and special treatment for themselves. I know, this doesn’t make a lot of sense because different or separate is not equal. Nothing illustrates this more than the Black Lives Matter movement. Saying “all lives matter” is racist. Saying “white lives matter” is seriously racist. Heck, even just not saying “black lives matter” is racist.
With that in mind, someone altered a church sign in North Palm Beach, FL from the non-racist “black lives matter” to the super-racist “white lives matter.” The Palm Beach Post reports that the vandalism occurred at the First Unitarian Universalist Church on Thursday night.
Calling this an act of vandalism may be a bit harsh. Someone glued a piece of paper with the word “white” written on it to the outside of a glass display sign. However, the “white isn’t quite big enough to cover the “black” so it kind of reads like: “BwhiteK Lives Matter.”
In any case, check this out:
The Rev. CJ McGregor estimates the damage at $1,000.
Are you effing kidding me? $1000 to remove a glued-on piece of paper? Get some lighter fluid and a razor blade and in 10 seconds or less, that thing is off the glass. I wish I lived in Palm Beach. I’d offer to do it for $800.
The original “black lives matter” sign was to promote a Sunday service highlighting the oppression of black people. Sounds fun.
“By saying that black lives matter, we aren’t saying that black lives are the only lives that matter or matter more than other lives,” said Rev. McGregor.
Has he considered that the “vandal” wasn’t trying to say that white lives matter more than other lives? You can’t have it both ways.
Making this story all the more ridiculous is that the First Unitarian Universalist Church is not a black church; nearly all of the congregation and the pastor are white. Basically, this is a white “hate crime” against a white church.
And then there’s something a little suspicious about this act of vandalism. Rev. McGreggor had a premonition that it would happen. Not only did he predict it, but also he says more is on the way.
“To be honest, we’re expecting more vandalism,” said McGregor.
He’s not the only church member with “the vision.”
“I wasn’t surprised,” Judy Bonner, a member of the North Palm Beach church for 12 years. “Mostly, I hear ‘all lives matter,’ not ‘white lives matter.’ This is more confrontational.”
This smacks of an inside job. Bear in mind that this is only my opinion, but it feels like someone from the church did this to get attention for the church, and/or possibly an insurance settlement for a brand new sign.
Because of the anti-black racism against a white church, police are taking this very seriously. The North Palm Beach Police Department is not only investigating the vandalism, but will also provide security for Sunday’s sermon.
This is where we are at in this country: A person spray paints “Black Lives Matter” on a statue and it’s a powerful statement of racial identity. A person glues a piece of paper to glass and it’s an act of hate and a threat that requires an armed police presence to protect against.
