Woman Seeks Grant Money For Social Justice For All In America
by Deborah Johnson
(Baltimore, MD, USA)
I am a single Black American female, and I am the mother of four children who are now young adults. Three of my offspring are males, and the other is a female.
I have been aware of my place in America after accepting the teaching of Jesus. I claim no religious doctrine. I only claim Jesus as my Savior.
The first thing that I learned was the truth about me. I learned that my heart was full of deception. There are times when I feel that I am being a good person, but my thoughts and action prove otherwise. I can fool people, but I can only worship our creator in truth trough the name of Jesus.
As I lived my life in America, faced with poverty status, I find myself very thankful. I have learned empathy for others. Because of my knowledge of the savior I realize that America as a whole is in need of "Reparations" because everyone has suffered the devastating effects of slavery.
It is not possible to deprive some Americans without creating threats to all American citizens, as said by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
I believe that reparations should be implemented through social institutions of America. To be paid by Executive, Legislative, Judicial branches of government that enforced implemented, and upholder of laws that where and still to date are crimes against humanity.
America is a civilized nation, which means no human should be exposed to homelessness or hunger, nor should any human be named as lower class, but normal people with different attributes, and all others as high achievers.
After all if I considered myself to be great, normal citizens would be no threat to me. No human should go without proper education as their ability allows, or medical attention.
Reparation implemented through social institutions would give to all humans the necessities for living, and create jobs, reduce crime, reduce mental illness, unite families, and it will help to end self-hatred that would otherwise be a threat to other American citizens.
Because of my unprejudiced beliefs I would like to be considered as a candidate for government grant funds so that I can assist different individuals, regardless of the color of their skin.
I would like to mimic a social institution to end mental and physical poverty conditions in America.
