Are you a coward? Am I?

The Attorney General of the United States apparently thinks so.

After having elected a bi-racial president of the United States, had two supreme court justices who are Black, two Black Secretary’s of State, we apparently are not doing enough, or are simply cowards. Because we are largely segregated in our social life and church life, we are therefore cowards.

The issue of race seems to never go away and even as I think through the intersection of faith and life, I am also very aware of how race is often used as a bludgeon to end rather than begin conversation.

I was born the fourth child and third son of godly parents in Nashville Tennessee. After leaving home for college I got involved with InterVarsity, then graduated with a degree in finance. After that I got a masters in history. Nowadays I spend too much time reading, writing, thinking, and occasionally doing my job.

One thought on “Are you a coward? Am I?”

  1. Who in their right mind would comment on race if they seek political influence. Anyone who dares say anything risks the media scrutiny and label of “racist”. The Left has enough of a law on race comments that legalism would best describe it. One step away from the script and anyone, black or white gets blasted. Balanced and fruitful discussion and dialogue is rare. Even Obama was criticized for asking for more responsibility from Black Dads. Bill Cosby is written off as irrelevant. The governor of SC was labeled a racist this week for suggesting he would refuse bailout money by SC’s senior Black congressman. White people in general fear saying the wrong thing, no wonder white people with political power hedge their bets.
