Summary
"This book will examine the paradox of being a Christian and a racist. A racist believes that one racial group is superior to another. Yet, since the nation's revolutionary birth, the U.S. claims a pious, devout mantel of Christianity that served as the nation's moral compass, while engaging in horrendous acts of racial violence. How can a white Christian male, sit in a church, engaging in Christian prayers, and then in cold-bloodied fashion murder nine African American Christians in their own church? Christians traditionally have always designated "churches" as places of refuge and sanctuary. The binary of whiteness and Christianity emerged and came to dominate much of the world. In the U.S. and other parts of the world, whiteness and Christianity have served to subjugate people of color even as such people themselves also came to embrace Christ's teachings, often at the cost of the loss of their traditional forms of religion and culture"--
