    Gee BC you SUCKER... you forgot Abraham Lincoln. Dead yes, but...Black lives mattered to him too.He did more to free the slaves then anyone. I do believe it was call the Emancipation Proclamation. Lincoln's own advisors didn't support it at first. As Lincoln tried twice to do. It was signed the 2nd time around. When it took effect in January 1863, the Emancipation Proclamation freed 3.1 million of the nation's 4 million slaves. The Emancipation Proclamation led the way to total abolition of slavery in the United States. This very same Proclamation Lincoln declared in the Proclamation that African-Americans of “suitable condition, would be received into the armed service of the United States. Gee BC....all this was done by a white man too. Guess that fact slipped by you huh? Jesse Williams pleasezzzzzz. BLM....All lives Matter to me dear. Not just black...but ALL...."vengeance is mine saith the lord.." and a few others: it's a shame the gangbangers choose not to remember. all they want is "vengenance".

    Leviticus 19:18
    'You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself; I am the LORD.

    Proverbs 20:22
    Do not say, "I will repay evil"; Wait for the LORD, and He will save you.

    There are more....in the Bible as well...
    And yes BC...I do believe in God. And our difference's are not so different. We all want the same thing. You're just going about it the wrong way! Evil has many forms. The only one true Supreme being is the Lord...Seems if you don't agree or like with what people say you label them all "WHITE SUPREMACISTS" And that is so far from the truth, which you can;t seem to handle. it's sad.....Have a great day BC....God even loves you too...
