What one word meaning in ancient wisdom proverbs might propel the movement in far greater participation and understanding?
The Chicago Tribune article titled: Slogan or Agenda? The Blurry Meaning of ‘Black Lives Matter’ gave the writers opinion of how or why the meaning is being interpreted by all parties ‘of or for’ the movement.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate ancient proverbs to the conundrum word that in my opinion was added to the Slogan and Agenda would propel the movement in the right direction to achieve greater understanding, participation, and agreement to join in the movement.
Remove the dross from the silver, and a silversmith can produce a vessel;
Remove the wicked from the king’s presence, and his throne will be established in righteousness. Do not exalt yourself in the presence of the king, and do not stand in the place of great men; for it is better that he says to you, “Come up here!” than that you should be demoted in the presence of the prince. Even what you have seen with your own eyes (Proverb 25:4-6)
What’s My Point?
The article includes statements made by a spokesman that are contrary to the one word of the conundrum.
My point is if the one word was added in the slogan and agenda it would remove the blurriness along with the opposition and even combativeness instead of participation of agreement to propel the movement.
In My Opinion
When we exalt ourselves and attempt to force an agenda that is absent this one word, over time the movement will fail because of the missing word.
In the ancient proverbs, it advises that one should not seat themselves at a banquet of the King. Instead the King will make his choice of a person to honor him or her to sit in his presence instead of forcing himself or predisposing to exalt that he or she is worthy to sit next to the King, which would be to achieve the greatest of honors in the presence of his peers.
This analogy is not to imply that Whites are superior to Blacks. The King is intended to convey what is necessary in life for everyone to obtain honor in life in the eyes of the kings and peers will recognize, e as being worthy regardless of the color of skin they are born with.
A clue to the word is contained in the speech of Martin Luther King Jr. speech statement about his dream.
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
In other words, the BLM must remove the dross in their movement to create the silver of their movement, which would make the object beautiful in the eyes of their Creator and their peers on their earth.
Or instead of instilling fear of their cause or movement, to create participation and acceptance. For example, to remove the fear of either a Black man to walk unharmed in a White neighborhood or a White man in a Black neighborhood.
The same word that is required to achieve character that Martin Luther dream.
Consider how all the fuzziness or dross of the BLM movement would obtain acceptance instead of another harmful revolution to justify looting, anarchy, etc. as the spokesman in the article described
The same word emphasized in the Bible that propelled the greatest revolution in world history of mankind.
The word that most Blacks have never had the opportunity to understand in their youth because they have never been schooled in private religious schools to understand the spiritual meaning and understanding.
In my opinion, if the BLM slogan would add and incorporate the meaning of the word in the fuzziest of their slogan, it would remove fear from their movement and serve to propel and to shine in the eyes of everyone.
Amend Slogan From – To
BLM to BLMR or Black Lives Matter for Righteousness.
What does righteousness mean in the Bible?
“Righteousness is the state of moral perfection required by God to enter heaven. However, the Bible clearly states that human beings cannot achieve righteousness through their own efforts: “Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.”.

Would school choice or school vouchers propel understanding of the Biblical definition of the word righteousness and propel the movement over time.
Is the reason that Blacks could never afford to be sent or send their children to private religious schools the core reason why Blacks have never marched for school choice of school vouchers if this following statement is true.
“Black parents love charter schools and voucher-supported private school vouchers because they teach values, self-respect, and hope. But no, if this option for poor or lower-income parents has more Democrat opposition than ever.”
