Corona virus exposes glaring racial disparities

The COVID 19 pandemic is revealing glaring racial disparities. (Racial disparity began when skin color was declared to be a hierarchy of human value.) Racial hierarchy (a particular color supremacy) and racial equality are mutually exclusive. There’s no eye color disparity because it has never been defined to be a measure of human value.

If many Americans today are ready to run away from “stay at home” orders during the COVID 19 pandemic, just think how American slaves must have felt. As Jesus refused to stay in a sealed tomb, America’s heroic, runaway slaves refused to stay in the bondage of human trafficking.

Historical restorationists try to reinstate events and facts that have been left out of history books. Revisionists try to distort facts. Any shame regarding skin color is in the heart of any person who thinks his color makes him better than people of another color.

Color-blindness either overlooks racial disparities or blames them on individual failings and shortcomings. Pride and pretense give birth to prejudice– putting other people down to make yourself feel better. I find the best place to fight prejudice and overcome evil, is often in my own heart. In a just society, skin color is neither an asset or a liability. Search: Off the RACE Track book.

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
