From the streets to university campuses, it’s the issue of race: blacks, whether on the streets or in our classrooms, continue to express frustration over racial discrimination and prejudice.
I will like to think that as a nation we’re making headways toward racial reconciliation. But lately, I’m beginning to question myself.
Why are we failing?
First, as a society, I believe we’re not doing enough. We avoid the issue. We don’t want honest, open dialogue for the sake of healing. We’re still segregated.
Simply open your eyes.
Consider the inequalities when it comes to jobs and pay.
Second, as a minister of the gospel of Christ, from observation, I’m willing to say that for the most part the white church is silent. Imagine what would happen if the privileged white church would lead the march against racism in this nation?
This inertia. This inaction. On the part of the white church must be challenged.
After all, it’s a gospel imperative (Galatians 2:14).
