What Happened In The Aftermath Of Charleston Shooting Was No Surprise

The author here, Jay Caruso, had something important to say about the aftermath of the Charleston shooting. I’m giving you the meat of it, but that is no reason why you shouldn’t read his article, as always the author’s context us important.

On the flip side, so much of the negative side of what you’ve heard of the south is largely false. Northern liberal elites whose only time spent in the south is getting a connecting flight in Atlanta, would have you believe the south is still a hotbed of racism that existed in the 1950′s and 1960′s with Bull Connor types lurking about in every small town from North Carolina to Mississippi.

Naturally, there is racism in the south. No more so however, than I have seen in the north. I heard far more racial slurs being spouted by people living in progressive blue states than I ever have since living down here. Yes, there is the occasional white trash lowlife riding around with his confederate flag somewhere on his pickup truck and hoping one day that south will rise again, but these idiots exist in a vacuum. They overwhelmingly represent a bygone era.

It’s no surprise that leftists almost seem to be upset by what happened in the aftermath of the horrific murders committed at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Others were blown away in surprise at what happened.

The only people not surprised are those who actually live in the south.

Well, not exactly. I suspect many of us in the Trans-Mississippi West were equally unsurprised, and for much the same reason, It was a show of mercy and grace that is within keeping with what we believe as real Christians. That doesn’t mean that we don’t think he should be prosecuted, just that we learned the Lord’s lesson, and we know that our health demands that we publically forgive him. Powerful testimony it was, and from a famous Christian denomination, the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

To be honest, it’s been a very long time since I spent any amount of time in the south, well over thirty years, but my memories are almost all good ones, and, in fact, the last time I was down south was in Charleston which is a beautiful city in a beautiful state. I think the time is coming for me to visit again because it sounds like it hasn’t changed much in it’s essentials.

What I really saw was the old America, that sometimes we despair of, working together to help our fellow man, mourning our losses together, praying for all concerned, and getting on with life.

What could be more American, or more Christian, than that? And yes, all concerned have been, and will remain, in my prayers as well. God Bless ’em all.

    Yes, you’re right. The forgiveness spirit in lots of real Christians.
    Then sometimes you don’t know who to forgive or blame. You have to forget and move on as it is said…well…by a lot by the left. Not forget the love you had, remember, and still have, but recognize there is nothing you can change or do about it. I won’t even try to give the details, only saying that I know it. 22 years now for me.
    And doing well with the facts of life. 🙂

      Yes, we don’t always know who to forgive but we must anyway, for our own health and soul. It hard, very hard though, as you well know.
