ATTITUDES TOWARD RACE IN SBC LIFE
Also see ABP's coverage here.
A couple comments from ABP readers:
.Blacks have got to get out of this affirmative action mindset. It is as if they don't believe they can be promoted without special treatment. Have confidence in you own merit. Someone should never be placed in a leadership role because they are black or white.
Blacks have been marching for equality for so long that they don't know what else to do. We elected a black president for goodness sake. The days of a racist America are over. To get upset at the occasional idiot who says something stupid is unwise. Look at the President's nutty preacher. . . it didn't stop him from achievement. If that was not a hindrance, why do you really think a white guy talking about black ladies wearing hats will cause harm?
Once again, the days of a racist America are over. We have elected a black president. Now is the time to quite whining and tell young black people to make something of themselves. . . just like our president has done. There are no more excuses. Just do it.
Guys like this need to start ministering and quit manufacturing a sense of victimhood.
The SBC blogosphere has been strangely silent and not yet offered responses to McKissic's series of posts on race.
