Heart Issue

We often hear as a response to racism, violence, and disenfranchisement of a people that it’s a Heart Issue.

In the Christian community when obvious disregard for Black life is captured and answers and justice is demanded our Pastors and ministers respond: it’s a Heart Issue…they need Jesus. 

While these are true statements “It’s a heart Issue ” is a juvenile and dismissive response to the problem.
