A collection of seven succinct articles penned by black pastors, authors and one former policeman following the murder of Micheal Brown in 2014. Stacy Hillard’s, Leonce Crump’s part 1 and Bryan Loritts articles are standouts. A good three or four presses of the page down key should get you to the start of each article – it is worth the extra work.
Articles – Racism
Articles that address racism.
A raw, openhearted reply by an African American after he is asked how he is doing after seeing another African American killed in at the hands of a cop.
Though written from an Asian American’s perspective, the article is applicable to everyone.
A straight forward walk-through on America and its institutions that were founded on racism. If you just want the data without personal stories, this is perfect.
A personal narrative that explains how the way we tell our personal stories is a reflection of our understanding of racism. We really like how Phil Vischer expertly strips back the layers of his own personal story and how that fit in with the overall system in the United States.
A detailed, highly researched article that balances historical, cultural and biblical narratives and chronicles the systematic oppression of African Americans. Forrest cites loads of research and clearly makes his point at the beginning of the article that he wants to move the reader from understanding (empathy, listening) to what can be done to change (action).
