This is the latest offering from Alpha Unit. At first it seems a proud and ethnocentric Black woman is arguing that Whites should take up the White Man’s burden, but actually, she’s being sarcastic.
To People Who Hate Blacks–And Love Quoting Scriptures
by Alpha Unit
For years assorted Black Nationalists and Afrocentrists have complained about the depictions of Jesus so many of us grew up with: Christ as a blue-eyed blond. But there couldn’t be a more fitting portrayal, actually. In this temporal realm, isn’t the White Man the closest thing we have to Our Lord and Savior? He is Christ if ever Christ existed. But unlike the Christ of the New Testament, the White Man is not resigned to his fate. Nor is he very gracious about his God-given mission, or toward those meant to benefit from it. He could learn a thing or two from Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus of Nazareth acknowledged, when he stood up and spoke at the synagogue (the story told in Luke chapter 4), that He had been sent to the Jews, in fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah. But He knew that His mission was not confined to the Jews. He knew that He had been sent to save the entire world. That anyone could come to the Father through Him, provided they believed in Him. Well, as enlightened white men, you were not put on earth to be of benefit solely to yourselves. You were put on earth to benefit humanity. You cannot “separate,” any more than Jesus of Nazareth could have separated from those around Him. It is your fate, your burden, and your mission to serve your fellow man. You see, without the unique gifts you bring to humankind, civilization as it is taken for granted in the West would not exist. Indeed, you are the one thing separating your darker companions from barbarism. Remember New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina? As you noted at the time, this is what happens when these benighted souls are left to their own devices. And long before Katrina, their incompetence and corruption was on glaring display, whether in American cities or in African ones. It happens wherever they congregate. You shudder to think of what would happen to Western Europe and its offshoot societies if the brown hordes and black masses were left in charge, and rightfully so. The principles of individual autonomy, private property, the rule of law, democracy–these are your legacy to the world, not trinkets for your own adornment. And so, like Christ Himself, you must take up your cross and endure what you must to maintain them for all. “Nationalism” and “separatism”? These are beneath you. You are too magnanimous for this. You have been imitated and envied in every continent you have set foot on. You mustn’t abandon the world. Your work isn’t finished. Temptation is, no doubt, overwhelming for you. These ungrateful and rebellious non-whites have no idea what they cast aside when they spurn your values, your principles, and, in some cases, your leadership. Blacks offend most egregiously, with their constant hectoring over every slight, both real and imagined. Not ever (with the exception of Keith Richburg) do they express gratitude for the wealth of opportunity and freedom the White Man has provided them, wealth they would still be waiting for had they been left in Africa. But take heart. You have been provided a great example in Jesus Christ. In the garden of Gethsemane He prayed that God would take that Cup of sacrifice from Him; but in the end He said to God, “Not my will, but yours be done.” Your will is to separate; God’s will is for you to continue to light the way for those still in darkness. The thorny crown placed upon the head of Jesus is now yours.
