Uncharted: America has much blood on her hands from centuries of domestic inhumanity

America may be reaping what she sowed during slavery and in the aftermath. Holding our forbears in abject indentured servitude was reprehensible. Tossing tens of thousands of dead and dying Africans overboard at sea during the Middle Passage in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries; the wanton suffering and misery of those bound in chains mired in their own putrid waste in the dank holds of these ships over month-long voyages — was this not evil?

Further, the indignities of the cotton fields, the brutal de-humanity of lynchings, beatings, whippings, tarring and feathering; the savage rape of women and girls, the break-up and separation of blood-families — was this not evil?

“Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” This is a universal Biblical law established by an immutable omniscient God whose Word will not return void.

America the Great may be in the initial throes of this reaping in a clear erosion of power and stability under President Donald Trump. This individual is not a blessing for America, but rather a curse with worse yet to come. I believe it is through God’s permissive will that Trump was allowed to ascend to the presidency to usher in His will and judgment for America.
