SUMMARY: Living in intimate relationships with people of color or at the very least speaking with people of different opinions is a must for Christians to work through racial issues says Natasha Sistrunk Robinson, the Assistant Director of the Center for the Development of Evangelical Leadership (CDEL) at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Sistrunk Robinson also explains three things to help white evangelicals know where some black people are coming from when they say black lives matter.
KEY QUOTE: “#BlackLivesMatter declares that the wages for walking while black, driving while black, playing while black, being big and black, or even illegally selling or stealing a box of cigarettes should not be death. Black people and white people deserve equal protection under the law, and we all need to open our eyes to our misperceptions so we can better understand and love each other.”
