Colorism: Overcome fear. Take a fearless look at American history.

History has divided Americans. Ignoring that history won’t bring us together. Facing it with humility, honesty, and justice will. When it comes to reading, I’m a nonfiction guy (and that’s the truth).

Even history that some people don’t want to know about matters. Overcome fear. Take a fearless look at American history.

History sorted us by color. Those assortments still impact us. It’s time to declassify people. Let’s flatten the curve on the skin-color-hierarchy. One millimeter of skin isn’t indicative of who a person is!

Because of colorism, we can have prejudice that is unintentional and subconscious, completely beyond our awareness. Skin tones ring a bell in the subconscious (created by 100s of years of racial lies) and cause us to see people differently.

History produced colorism. It lingers today and let’s skin shade (but not eye color) influence how we see and relate to other people. Colorism is a prism that distorts human vision and decision, allowing skin shade to keep us from seeing who people really are.

Your skin color is good! That’s how God painted you. I appreciate you and people of every shade of humanity! Ideally, we humans shouldn’t care what color we are, since all skin colors are a gift from God. How a person thinks and behaves inside his skin is much more important than its color.

You can’t help but notice a person’s skin color, but you don’t have to be influenced by it. 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
