Racism in the American church?

From a brotherhood group blog:

… 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.

As far as the problem of “systemic racism” in society and the church, see this article, which appeared immediately below the article quoted above, in my RSS reader.
