… there is still a long way to go in overcoming systemic racism1 in our society.
Unfortunately, I fear we have a long way to go in overcoming systemic racism in the church of our Lord.
There is only one way to solve any problem of racism in the church: confront it head-on. People must be admonished then and there, as Paul confronted Peter in Galatians 2.
If a Christian who hears or witnesses racist attitudes does not confront it immediately, he is part of the problem.
