When it comes to racial tensions in America, George Yancey, Christian author and Professor of Sociology at Baylor University, believes that efforts at antiracism have been largely ineffective. Why? According to Yancey, both antiracism and colorblindness are poor solutions that tend to alienate people who should be involved in the racial reconciliation process. Today, Keith sits down with Dr. Yancey to discuss more of the themes from his latest book, Beyond Racial Division. Listen as he shares present-day examples of structural racism and discover his alternative approach to healing racial tensions: mutual accountability. Plus, he explains why so many black Christians felt betrayed by Trump voters, why you only ever hear of “white Evangelicals,” and whether or not he believes the Democratic Party has embraced their own form of Christian nationalism.
