The Heavy Affliction Not Known, Your Outcry Unanswered: T.H.A.N.K Y.O.U (Introduction)

1 Corinthians 13:3
“If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.”
Many people take for granted the power of words. Language not only provides for communication and discourse, but also allows us to share our thoughts and feelings openly. Many people do not get the opportunity or the education needed to learn how to constructively voice their opinions. And-in times in which racial prejudice and discrimination have proven yet alive and thriving-it becomes apparent to give a voice to the voiceless. It also becomes imperative that one acknowledges those who have a genuine spirit and tenacity in the fight for social justice, for all those seeking rescue and comfort. This blog will focus exclusively on the plight of African Americans in our fight to reaffirm the fact that racism exists as it existed hundreds of years ago. Using this medium, I will be taking the time to thank those who are left unnoticed in the midst of the social media frenzy. Additionally, I will also be thanking individuals who are seen as the perpetrators and/or the root of much oppression found in the United States today, pointing out where many have found them flawed and wrong in their thinking. If money and a proper address finding allow, I will even attempt to send these letters directly to their respective recipients if only to assure that these individuals know they are being noticed not only for what some of them are doing well but for what the others are doing badly.
“The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
