A quick & deracialized look at slavery

Let’s deracialize slavery and judge it by the content of it’s cruelty, not by the color of anyone’s skin. See history without racial eyes. Slavery was evil, regardless of the color of the slaveholders.

Read about violence and injustice in American history, without noticing skin-color and you’ll be shocked at what people did to people. A non-racial view of American history doesn’t see white and black. It sees much human trafficking and abuse done to innocent people.

Historical facts
Aren't "racist" or "divisive."
They're just reality.
It's important
To be in touch with reality.
You can handle the truth.

To deny
The humanity
Of any person
Or developing human life
Is cruel, no matter the color.

For America to heal, we need to get out of the box of race and examine the slavery and injustice in our history with the light of truth. I try to do that in this 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
