Martin Luther King fought and died for us to have an opportunity, not for us to be given special treatment. It was a struggle for us to have access to jobs and education. He fought hard for us not to be judged by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character. He did not die for us to be in welfare. He did not die for us to be accepted in jobs and colleges just because we were minorities. He fought so that we could have an opportunity to fight and earn those spots.
He did not fight for standards to be lowered so that we were able to get in; He trusted us enough to know that we were qualify for the job, just as much as everybody else. Again, all we just needed was a chance. He did not die for us to kill each other. He did not die for us to destroy communities. He died for us to build them.
The statistics show that our number one killer is not the white man any longer. Oh yes, I know, there was a time when they were killing us left and right; they were our number one killer; but we are putting the current sick racist minds out of business; why? Because now, we are doing a great job in killing ourselves.
“A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, reveals that approximately 8,000 — and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that 93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks. The analysis, supported by FBI records, finds that in 2005 alone, for example, African Americans accounted for 49% of all homicide victims in the US — again, almost exclusively at the hands of other African Americans.” (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/04/09/race-wars-part-1-the-shocking-data-on-black-on-black-crime/)
Beloved, 21 of us are killing us daily! Now, let me also say that the statistics are showing that whites are also killing whites. The difference is that they don’t go out stealing and destroying communities and just go crazy when a black person kills one of them; that foolishness is something that we are now, exclusively doing. Who is killing us? Us!
How can we fix this? We must stop listening to Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and all of these liberal civil rights organizations. We must start by making God our Lord; we must start by remembering that it was HIM who got us through some of the toughest times in the history of humanity. We must start by loving and respecting ourselves and each other. Lets stop killing each other, lets stop making excuses, lets start earning things, lets get off welfare, lets start our dependency on God and not on the government and let us work hard, not only to learn how to fish, but let us start owning some lakes, some rivers and some seas. In Jesus Name!
An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992. With JYS he was promoted several times as group home supervisor, legal caseworker, and program director.
While in Jacksonville, Angel studied a couple of martial arts styles. After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog.
In August of 2012 Angel moved to Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Rayette Casiano and six children who are now adults. In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing. Angel is the author of two books, Hope for the divorcee: Forgiving and Moving Forward and 7 Banderas de Esperanza: La Bendición de Yokdzonot.
In January 8th of 2020 Angel and his wife moved to Arizona. On June 8th 2021 Angel started his home church, not as a starting point, but as a closer way to how the church is suppose to look like according to Scripture.
