Being white doesn’t make you a racist. Something else does.

Being white doesn’t make you a racist. Disrespecting someone’s color does. Most of what people believe about people who have a different skin color than they do, isn’t true.

Some whites say they’re tired of being called racist. I’m white and have interacted with thousands of blacks and I can’t recall ever being called racist.

If you’re being called racist, maybe there’s a little bit of truth to it. Perhaps it’s possible that you’re saying or doing something that’s provoking it.

When people become aware of their likenesses, their hearts connect. When they focus on their differences they squabble. Sorting humanity into an ever increasing number of categories isn’t wise. Let’s just be people.

High-impact, self-denying Christianity, speaking truth in love, is the cure for racial unrest. Search for: 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
