However, it is being replaced by a benevolent racism. It isn’t the rancorous, vicious, out-in-the-open kind we saw with Jim Crow but rather it’s nicer, gentler, and largely hidden. Because it’s in the name of helping instead of hurting, it’s a more insidious form of the same old monster. It’s altruistic bigotry - a kind of bias that can’t see the hypocrisy of its own prejudice.
Like the old racism, it’s influenced by a faulty notion of race. As a Christian, I couldn’t disagree more. A biblical worldview informs us that nations exists. Cultures exists. Religions exists. Worldviews and Ideologies exists. Race does not. It never has. May God, the Creator of the human race, fully extinguish from His world, prejudice in all of its ugly forms and practices.
Take Away: May God, the Creator of the human race, fully extinguish from His Church, prejudice in all of its ugly forms and practices.
