My wife and I sometimes take the opportunity to listen to the Water Cooler Moment on radio station WAAW. It never ceases to amaze me to hear the vile comments that come forth from that program.
Last week, a caller asked the host if 94.7 FM was a Christian station, because he did not recognize any love from its host and previous callers. As expected, there was a vicious attack against that gentleman. My wife and I had wanted to make that same inquiry. I must admit, the comments become unbearable at times and we turn the radio off.
I am astonished that some blacks think of themselves as the great deliverer of Augusta. If the truth is to be known, they actually do more damage than good. There are other radio stations designed to separate and divide the voting public into to ethnic voting groups. From them, we expect abrasive and infuriating comments that are designed to achieve their predetermined goal. These hosts work for the money and become quite wealthy. The surprise is to hear black stations sending the same messages. The results of their messages are more polarizing than the other stations because not only do they polarize blacks against whites, they polarize blacks against blacks.
The host condemned Sunday-morning-only Christians for failing to take up his causes. One day, people of faith must come together as they do on Monday nights in Augusta and speak love, not hate. If the host wants to foster change in Augusta, he must elicit the Christian family that has transcended color and race. These are the ones who recognize that the fight is not against flesh and blood, or black or white, but against principalities and powers not seen.
Pray for him, Augusta!
Roy and Carolyn Ellis, Augusta
