ARTICLE: American Christianity’s White-Supremacy Problem

By Michael Luo | The New Yorker
Published in September of 2020

SUMMARY: A thorough history of the church and its complicity with racism and white supremacy doctrine. An excellent starting point to learning about the church and racism working hand in hand. The next step would be to read or watch The Color of Compromise by Jemar Tisby.

KEY QUOTE: “The fact that history, theology, and culture all contribute to the racist attitudes embedded in the white church makes dislodging them especially difficult. One potential pathway is for white church leaders to absorb exegetical lessons from the Black church. Black Christians share many of the same broad faith commitments as white Christians, but the African-American ecclesial tradition also has a long history of confronting injustice.”

DID YOU KNOW?: We have curated numerous other articles on white privilege, take a look.
