What is the future of our country going to look like if we keep seeing this sort of stuff happening
What is racism?
- “the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races. prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.” (Google)
Racism is a real issue even today.
Are we more unified today than in previous generations or divided
Racism is a two way street.
Violence is not the answer. Rioting is not the answer.
Why does racism exist?
Does God think there should be any sort of segregation between peoples?
How should we deal with racism as Christians?
Are there different races? NO!
“Nobody hates a bad cop more than a good cop!”
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” - Galatians 3:28
