“But wanting to live in a just world is not the same as living in a just world. And as the events in Ferguson this week reminded us, our country is far from just. Racism isn’t simply an insensitive comment your elderly relative makes here and there, it’s a pervasive, unjust, and ongoing system that actively oppresses millions of people. And white Christians have absolutely no excuse to ignore it. ”
Rachel Held Evans address racism in her post “On Race, the Benefit of the Doubt, and Complicity.”
Her post “Pay Attention to #Ferguson: Some Resources” should also be of interest to our readers for its links to books, posts, and social media accounts that illuminate the experience of people of color.
