Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson is such a long shot, that I'd never even heard of her name until today. However, the little Trump hater is making ripples with her absurd rhetoric.
Williamson is now demanding white people to apologize to black people for slavery....let that sink in. She is requesting that people alive today, who never owned slaves, apologize to people that were never slaves. Makes perfect sense. She also wants white people to apologize for lynching and police brutality as well.
Houston Chronicle reported on her rally, "Marianne Williamson walked to the middle of the stage, paused for a second, then she asked all the black people to stand. She then instructed a white person to hold the hand of a black person standing ... Williamson then told the white people to repeat after her. She began with, 'I apologize ... .'"
"Her focus was on racism and politics, claiming that until the United States addresses slavery honestly, gets deep about its enduring impact on African-Americans and makes amends, we will continue a cycle of hate and racism in this country," the report added.
Williamson's words at the rally apparently echo a prayer she penned in 2016, titled "Prayer of Apology to African Americans," which begs the Almighty to forgive us of past racism. Here's just a small sample:
On behalf of myself, and on behalf of my country, to you and all African Americans, from the beginning of our nation's history, in honor of your ancestors and for the sake of your children, please hear this from my heart...
please forgive us.
With this prayer I acknowledge the depth of evils that have been perpetrated against black people in America.
From slavery, to lynchings, to white supremacist laws, to the denial of voting rights, to all the ways both large and small, that abuses have occurred — all of them evil, all of them wrong.
For all the oppression and all the injustice...
please forgive us.
Yikes. Talk about white guilt. How embarrassing.
Yes, slavery was terrible and the way people were treated is heartbreaking. However, the sins of the past are not our fault.
