Red and yellow, black and white–there’s no color supremacy!

The idea that one skin color outranks another is myth, manipulation, and madness. Skin-color has nothing to do with the quality of a human being. Absolutely nothing!

To call a certain skin color unacceptable and use it as justification for human trafficking was a terrible evil in history. When a nation’s culture and institutions were based on color-hierarchy for centuries, changing laws won’t magically bring equality.

America’s history of extreme racial cruelty shouldn’t get an “IGNORE-ME-PASS” just because it’s in the past. It’s time to talk about it so we can heal our racial wounds.

The religion involved in America’s founding failed to teach “love your neighbor as yourself” and accepted human trafficking. Some people say, let’s forget about that and not mention it. However, Paul of Tarsus says: “I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man.” He doesn’t refuse to talk about his dark past. America shouldn’t refuse to talk about ours either!

Looking over American history, the most heroic people to me were the runaway slaves who courageously sought freedom! They should be celebrated!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
