(WokePreacherTV) During the youth group of a Las Vegas megachurch, a father reveals that his preteen son (on the same stage with him) has been so dramatically affected by mass media, he is too afraid to play baseball in the backyard, because he believes accidentally throwing it in a neighbor’s yard could endanger him. To protect the minor’s identity, I have obscured his image and removed the audio when his father says his name. I will not link to the source video to keep this identifying information private.
FATHER: I’m not raising him to be fearful. And I know that that for [redacted], he has seen a lot. This generation has so much, you know, so many different ways to see all the racism, in comparison to what I saw when I was growing up.
And I know that that fear has really played a part on my son. And I don’t want to raise him in a place, I teach them, I tell them all the time, like, don’t be scared. And my thing is, my fear is, the fear that this is generating for my son, and that’s something that I don’t want, because at the end of the day, I want him to be the strongest man he can be.
I know that he’s scared. I know he sees these things happening. I know that that plays a part on the way he looks at stuff. The other day he told his brother, he didn’t tell me, because he knew I would get mad, but he said, “Hey, I’m scared to go outside and throw the baseball in, around, in front of the house.” And I’m like, I asked my wife, I said, “Well, why say that?” And she’s like, “You know, he thinks something would happen if the ball rolled in someone else’s yard.” And it was right then and there where I knew that this, what’s happening right now, is putting so much fear into my son.
And that is something that I don’t want to live with. I can’t live with that, that he’s scared or he’s fearful and he can’t be all that he wants to be.
The moderator chimes in:
MODERATOR: That’s good. And I think that is so important. That’s why we are having these conversations, because nobody should feel fear from walking outside their house. And I know a lot of people are like, “Oh, just shut up about it, like, keep going on. Like, it’s not that bad.” But no, this is bad. Like, somebody’s fearful to even go outside their own house where they pay the bills. That, like, it’s just, it’s, it’s insane.

A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by consorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
