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. On Wednesday afternoon, the body passed a revised statement against the alt-right. But the drama over the resolution revealed deep tension lines within a denomination that was explicitly founded to support slavery ...

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

Study: when it comes to detecting racial inequality, white Christians have a blind spot
They also perceive discrimination against LGBTQ people and immigrants far less than other Americans do

... 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 ...

They think God has blessed America through them and that blacks and people of color are also blessed just to be in America. They can't see or refuse to see the inequalities due to racism and when they do it is not as bad as blacks and people of color think it is. They also feet that our problems are due more to ourselves than it is to racism.

1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
