Racism is sin: Alveda King discusses Charlottesville, what Dr. King would say & President Trump’s statement

Photo: Fox & Friends Weekend Share After a man rammed his car into a crowd of people at a white supremacist rally in Virginia, killing one and injuring nineteen, Americans are left stunned over the open display of hatred.

Christian activist Alveda King, niece of the late Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is weighing in on the tragedy and calling racism, “sin.”

“Racism is sin. Hatred is sin,” said the Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, who was featured on a “Fox & Friends Weekend” segment Sunday.

Quoting her uncle, Dr. King, the 66-year-old said, “I’ve decided to stick with love, because hate is too great a burden to bear.”

Pundits, politicians and many officials across the nation believe hate and bigotry was what drove James Alex Fields Jr., the man suspected of mowing down a group of counter-protesters at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, to do the unthinkable.

Fields, 20, is accused of killing Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old paralegal, who was protesting the "Unite the Right" march on Saturday. He is currently being held on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding and failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death, reports CNN.

Evangelist King told Fox she believes her uncle, who promoted peaceful protest and non-violent resistance to combat hatred, would have spoken out about the Charlottesville incident. “He would encourage us to cease fire, stop the violence,” she said.

After reiterating that “racism is just sin,” Evangelist King added, “anything that promotes [the view that] my race is better than your race when we’re all human beings, one blood, [according to] Acts 17:26, we’ve got to get off that page and finally resolve the problem of racism in America. We’ve got to do it.”

The scripture she quoted in Acts says “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth,” which shows that no matter what our race, we all come from one man, Adam, therefore sharing common ancestry.

When asked to share her opinion on President Donald Trump’s controversy-stirring statement about the Charlottesville incident, which did not directly condemn white supremacists or the Ku Klux Klan, the daughter of Reverend A.D. King did not join the chorus of critical voices.

"I had so many texts and tweets and messages [saying] ‘the president should do this,’ ‘the president should do that,’ but in serving God and serving America, he’s got to speak to the hearts of everyone. That’s why my dad, Rev. A.D. King, my uncle Martin Luther King Jr., my granddaddy Daddy King [did when] we were working then to transform in the ’60s," she said.

Trump was slammed for saying, "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides," which critics say was too generalized.

The president also stated in relation to the events, "No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first. We love our country. We love our God. We love our flag. We're proud of our country. We're proud of who we are. So, we want to get the situation straightened out in Charlottesville, and we want to study it. And we want to see what we're doing wrong as a country where things like this can happen."

Evangelist King added to her response to Trump's message, “I marched and went to jail. I was blown up by the Ku Klux Klan in our home, but we knew that the goal was to transform the laws and to transform the human hearts towards compassion. In order to move towards that, we’ve got to stop the violence. The president’s right about that."
