Injustice Should Make Us Angry
These words were recently written by a black man, “I’m angry because the stories of injustice that have been passed down for generations seem to be continuing before our very eyes. I’m angry because white people don’t get it. I’m angry because black people don’t get it, either.” And he added that more than 150 years since the abolition of slavery, you’d think that by now we’d have reached real parity between people of different skin tones. He then continues that, “A lot of white people believe that’s actually where we are. A lot of black people know we aren’t.” What does the biblical Christian church say in response to this?
