It seems obvious to me that the author of the letter “Mural, billboard should say” To God, All Lives Matter “” is somewhat out of touch with reality, the thousands of black men and women across America feel as disenfranchised as they are. made during the “Jim Crow” era of the 1950s.
I believe very strongly that the reason Colonial Avenue was painted with a mural and the reason a billboard was put up on Ehringhaus Street saying “Black Lives Matter” was definitely not to “treat Andrew Brown” Jr. as a hero, ”as the letter the writer claims.
Instead, these paintings and signs are actually bold statements that black people are not insignificant or a non-essential part of American society. These statements also say that the lives of black people are definitely indispensable. In other words, black people are indispensable and they are an absolutely necessary part of American society.
On the other side of the coin, the column written by Doug Gardner seems to show that he truly understands the importance of black lives from a genuinely rational perspective. Mr. Gardner appears to be genuinely and deeply concerned about the well-being and life of black people in American society.
In fact, he quotes the account of “seven young black men who have been killed in our community in one year since August 2020”. These murders were blacks killing blacks. Mr. Gardner also mentioned the appalling fact that black abortions made up 36 percent of all abortions in the United States, while black Americans made up 13 percent of the American population. I was very happy that he ended his column with the phrase: “All Black Lives Matter”.
Quite frankly, I believe life begins with conception. King David, the psalmist, said that the Lord God knew him in his mother’s womb. David also said that God formed his “inner parts” and he confidently said that God “woven” him into his mother’s womb.
King David also regarded all children as “a gift from the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is a reward.” In other words, all black lives matter, no matter how young or how old they are.
