I am a racist. Racism is deeply embedded in the white psyche. I have been a privileged white male for nearly seventy years.
But I know better, thanks to my parents’ teaching and, especially, thanks to the teaching and example of Jesus. And that, the example of the right-wing branch of the American church notwithstanding, is the way of love.
I try to live according to what I know rather than according to the demons that churn in my gut. Sometimes I succeed.
