Rakeem Jones, a 26 year-old black man, was sucker-elbowed by John Franklin Mc Graw, a 78 year-old white man at a Trump rally in Fayetteville, N.C. Thank you, Rakeem, for having enough dignity to not descend to retaliating then. Because of your restraint, African Americans have “A Different Example” on how to respond to racial persecution (although it has been reported that the attack wasn’t motivated by race).
Jesus knew that violence didn’t really solve problems. He gave this instruction, “But I say, do not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also. (Matthew 5:39)”
