    A Resolution Condemning White Supremacy Causes Chaos at the Southern Baptist Convention
    At its annual meeting, the evangelical denomination initially declined to consider a statement of its opposition to the alt-right


    The Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting turned chaotic in Phoenix this week over a resolution that condemned white supremacy and the alt-right, on Tuesday, leaders initially declined to consider the proposal submitted by a prominent black pastor in Texas, Dwight McKissic, and only changed course after a significant backlash.

    The Southern Baptist blowup over white supremacy, explained
    Racism is hard to condemn, apparently


    ... McKissic told the Washington Post he was inspired to introduce the proposal partly because he has witnessed SBC members aligning themselves with the hateful movement.

    “I saw people identifying themselves as Southern Baptist and members of the alt-right, so this is horrifying to me,” McKissic said; “I wanted the Southern Baptist Convention to make it very clear we have no relationship to them” ...

    Persuasive proof that America is full of racist and selfish people

    What millions of Google searches reveal about our national psyche. “Google is a digital truth serum,” Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, author of Everybody Lies, told me in a recent interview. Stephens-Davidowitz was working on a PhD in economics at Harvard when he became obsessed with Google Trends, a tool that tracks how frequently searches are made in a given area over a given time period.

    Layton police officer resigns after posting racist meme on NAACP leader's Facebook page


    At the top it reads "WE WUZ KANGZ!" At the bottom, it states: "NO. YOU WERE [expletive] WASHERS." Swan said the meme "made a mockery of African Americans," adding that he found it to be "racist, despicable, and unbecoming for any law enforcement officer to post on social media." The meme is based off an ancient Egyptian depiction of circumcision ... Continue Reading

    ... The idea that certain groups misjudge the amount of discrimination that other groups struggle with is probably not such a shock. But more surprising may well be what’s one of the clearest indicators of perspective on bias in America: faith ...
