A car plowed into at least 20 protesters at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday. At least eight were hurt in multiple heated clashes earlier at Unite the Right rally, according to police.

No good comes from violence.’ President Trump later tweeted: ‘We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America.

There is always turbulence before change. White supremacy will not leave America willingly. It will require the governments of America to support and defend justice for all of its citizens to put an end to the racial violence. Justice must be upheld by all of America’s citizens. In every area of society justice must be upheld. The prison, the schoolhouse, the housing market, and the job market. This stand of white supremacy can be a good sign that God may be ready to see justice arise within this land.
Pray for your government officials and pray for your church leaders. May the black and white churches unite against white supremacy and pray this evil down. In Jesus name.
