After the death of Elijah Cummings at 68 Ibra Kendi Director of Antiracism Research at Policy Centre, American University argued it highlighted the greatest white privilege- life itself.
Kendi argues that black men have a life expectancy four years less than white men; and black women three years less then white women. He says this is proof or racism at the heart of the nation.
He goes onto argue that white supremacy is also hurting whites:
“White people are “dying of whiteness,” to use Jonathan Metzl’s term. Whiteness is concurrently a privilege and a deprivation. Racist whites are supporting Republican policies that are harming white Americans at growing rates, from loosening gun laws to protect against people of color, which are leading to white male gun-related suicides; to rebuffing life-saving and fortune-saving Affordable Care Act provisions in Republican states, so that nonwhites can’t get access. “White America’s investment,” Metzl explained, “in maintaining an imagined place atop a racial hierarchy harms the aggregate well-being of U.S. whites as a demographic group, thereby making whiteness itself a negative health indicator.” If white supremacy is a mass shooter, then it is killing us all.”

Ely Erlich in a recent online article posed the question: “Is Donald Trump a bad president or does the media exaggerate his faults?”
Erlich argues that the media is in fact pushing a false narrative. He used as his argument the coverage CNN and NYT gave to a press conference in the White House where the President hosted people from throughout the world sharing their stories about the religious persecution they had experience.
CNN-NYT pushed the narrative the President was unfeeling, and racist in his dealings with a young Yazidi Christian, who had been raped and watched members of her family massacred. The news story said the President did not know her story. However the reason for the conference was to allow the woman and the others present to tell their stories to the global media, allowing them a voice, highlighting the injustices they had suffered. Attendees to the event praised the President for his work in this area, and the opportunity to share their stories. However, CNN and NYT turned the story into an attack on the President.

The numbers are plain: New York’s population is falling, for the first time in more than 10 years. New York was once the have-to-be-place for anyone who wanted to make it big in media, fashion, tech, or banking. But now with the ability to remotely work this is no longer the case.
And with the high taxes, high cost of living, crumbling infrastructure, poor schools, and dysfunctional transit system New Yorkers who can are choosing to leave.

The ruins at the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria are seen in this still image from an undated video taken from a social media website on March 24, 2016.
Christians should watch out for two events that would take place simultaneously on April 19 in New York City and London, Christian author Michael Synder says.
On that day, reproductions of the arch that stood in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria are going to be erected in Times Square and in Trafalgar Square. That would coincide with an occult festival related to the worship of a demon named Baal.
Writing for Charisma News, Synder wonders whether the arches to be installed would be the giant “welcome signs” for the Antichrist.
The author says his fears are based on these facts:
“April 19 is the first day of a 13-day period of time known as ‘the Blood Sacrifice to the Beast’ that culminates on the high occult holy day of Beltane on May 1,” he says.
April 19 is also the date of the Feast of Moloch, an ancient Canaanite god that is repeatedly vilified in the Old Testament.
Synder also notes a series of horrific events that occurred on April 19:
● April 19, 1993 – Waco Massacre: An FBI assault lead to the burning down of the compound of a sect named Branch Davidians, killing 76 men, women and children.
● April 19, 1995 – Oklahoma City bombing – 168 people killed.
● April 20, 1999 – Columbine High School massacre – 13 people murdered, 21 injured.
● April 16, 2007 – Virginia Tech massacre – 32 killed; 17 injured.
● April 16, 2013 – Boston Marathon explosions – 3 killed; 107 injured.
● April 19, 2013 – Boston terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev shot to death.
Synder also notes that since 2016 is a leap year, April 20 will be the 111th day of the year, and triple numbers are considered to be “power dates” in the occult world.
