[318] Harry Edwards

Apparently seventy-eight-year-old civil rights activist Harry Edwards still wants to be a “tuff guy” and scare those “comfy middle-class folks” into doing the right thing. Adorned in black garb, with a black stocking cap covering his bald pate, and sun glasses shading his eyes, the scowling scholar speaks in a menacing tone in his NFL ad on behalf of the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. His words and appearance have the effect of demands, reminiscent of the Black Panthers’ pronouncements of the 1960s, as Edwards orders us to “move the sticks.”

Such nonsense.

I find Edwards and the ad silly and offensive. Silly because of its patently obvious attempt at casting this septuagenarian relic as an intimidating force. Offensive because the Second Great Commandment is not about identity politics, intimidation, or demand. It is about humility, love and the fruits of the Spirit.

Galatians 5:22-23 says the fruits of the Spirit are “love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”  Those don’t comport well with the use of macho clothing, shades, and an unsmiling, threatening demeanor to encourage people to engage in charitable actions.
