SUMMARY: A passionate plea to Black Christians to not negotiate with their dignity. If you want a perspective on the frustrations of Black Christians and the churches response to racism within and outside of the church then this is the podcast for you. This is also a great opportunity to listen and learn what the church can do to address systemic and individual racism.
KEY QUOTE: “They weaponize you. They don’t look at reimagining what ethics looks like that values black bodies and centers them in the context of an American state that has brutalized and vilified and marginalized them and exploited them and killed them and destroyed their culture. They don’t look at that – that would be too much work. This is how they negotiate – they just give you a little bit. If you don’t you don’t have any intention of following up with true substantive change then don’t negotiate.”
