A repost of Pete Hester Facebook Page…..
Today I’m wondering if Egypt is worried about having to pay Israel for keeping the Jews as slaves for 400 years. Wouldn’t that be something. I don’t think that will ever happen…. I’m sure there were many cases of slavery throughout history and it is a shame it happened. I ‘m sorry it happened. I imagine you are sorry it happened.. But it did. There are so many wrongs committed over the years it would be impossible for us to rectify these errors nowadays, like the USA paying the Native Americans fair market value for the land we paid for with a few beads. How many dollars would that cost in todays money? Things like that will not work. It can’t work. There is no way…. The USA could not come up with enough money to settle those accounts….Regarding slavery in the USA, most of us southerners were just poor white folks, eating black eyed peas and corn bread like most  of the folks in the south, black and white, and glad to have that. None of my family, that I know of, ever owned a slave. As a descendent of a poor white family should I then have to pay for not having slaves based on the color of my skin? That don’t make sense, does it? Of course not. All lives matter and black lives matter and they always have. Us whites need to act more responsibly and at the same time, some of the blacks need to act more responsibly. Listen folks, its time we became Americans. Just Americans…..Bald headed Americans, young Americans, old Americans, fat Americans, skinny Americans, and on and on….But just Americans;. Can I get an Amen?
