White churches in America and embedded racism

This is a story from NPR about the roots of racism in white churches in American history. (It has an audio story as well as an article worth reading.) Read this document (bottom of page 2 and top of page 3) to read a prayer of a white pastor thanking God for the “cradle of the Confederacy of our beloved Southland.”

You can also learn more, because we NEED to learn more, from the book Color of Compromise by Jemar Tisby, or see his teaching series by the same name on Amazon Prime video.
