Wait: what is this junk?
This is an essay in a “devotional” titled “A Rhythm of Prayer” by Sarah Bessey. Containing pieces by many authors, it is available on Amazon. Target sells it online for $14.87 in its “Religion + Beliefs” section and “Christian Life” subsection. It is selling well, I hear. The anti-white screed above was authored by Professor of Theology Chinequa Walker-Barnes of Mercer University.
1. You can’t buy “If I Ran the Zoo” by Dr. Seuss on Amazon, but you can but this book. Someone should ask what the theory is on that…
2. The most common response to the “prayer” is “Substitute “black” or “Jewish” for white. Would the “prayer ” be acceptable then?” No, of course not. You see, white people ARE horrible, so there is nothing bigoted or racist about treating them as horrible. Yes, this is how Hitler conditioned the Germans to think about Jews, and how the South persisted in teaching children to think about blacks, and how generations of Americans regarded gays, but they were just wrong, that’s all. That’s prejudice. Hating white people is rational and based on historical fact. That is what
scholars like Walker-Barnes believe, and what they teach their students.
3. No white student should attend a university that employs a professor like Walker-Barnes. No non-white student with any ethical compass should either. Before I would hire a graduate of Mercer, he or she would have to explain to me why they stayed in a school enabling racism….and that explanation would have to be damn good.
4. Apparently social media platforms have removed some posts critical of the “prayer,” or ones that even mention it. Two that I tried to find had been taken down.
5. Should Target and Amazon sell books promoting race hate? Sure, if they sell books promoting all kinds of race hate. I won’t read or buy any of them, but they are protected speech, and should be.
6. If, however, for whatever reason, only books and “prayers” promoting race hate toward a single group are sold, posted and used in schools, that is, as Jonathan Turley would say, “concerning.”
7. The forces of division, anti-white bigotry and Leftist domination see an opportunity, and will keep crossing lines relentlessly. Radicals and extremists are by nature insatiable, and because they have warped ethics alarms, they never know when to stop.
8. If their victims never muster the courage and determination to stop them, they have no one to blame but themselves.
