A belligerent leader generates and emboldens belligerent followers. Before you embrace bombastic and belligerent boastings engage your brain.
Belligerence tries to justify itself by insulting its opponents. Belligerence boomerangs.
When people enjoy warm-hearted humor together, then anger and belligerence diminish. Belligerent humor mocks people. Warm-hearted, uplifting humor, helps them heal. Notice how you laugh. You can laugh with joyful kindness or vindictive belligerence.
God created laughter to connect people heart to heart. Never use it to belittle. Use laughter to release heart-felt joy; never to put anybody down. Good, anger dispelling, friendly laughter, makes life so much better. (Everyday I order a supersized laughter & kindness combo. They’re amazing!)
Anyone can be rude and unkind to people but it takes guts to be compassionate and caring. Kindness is more powerful than belligerence and doesn’t create a wake of hate. God give us deliverance from continual belligerence.
If you will continually show kindness to people, they will eventually respond with kindness. A kind appeal to make a fair deal is more effective than making people feel insulted. I admire people who are kind to everybody!
It looks like all Americans could agree that it’s wrong for police to treat blacks differently than whites. Kind, warm, supportive, heart-connecting humor can help stop and heal the glaring wounds in America. Check out my book, Off the RACE Track–From Color-Blind to Color-Kind.
