All the talk about racial reconciliation ignores the role of Black redemption. And, without Black redemption there is no way to achieve racial reconciliation that is anything more than further conditioning Black people to become reconciled to their own oppression.
I’m sold that racial reconciliation can only happen as a result of Black redemption. That’s why, when people ask me what I speak/present on I say: “Black redemption and racial reconciliation. The two go together.
There’s a third part that’s particular to White people – but, that’s not the point of this piece…
But from our perspective – as Black people – we’re concerned with our part. And that’s redemption.
Without it, we can’t really reconcile. All we can do is position ourselves for further oppression.
Without redemption, we are left hoping that White folk will be good to us.
Aren’t you tired of that?
So, I’m presenting a different approach and invite you to consider it.
In this episode of Blacks with Power, I share why Black redemption is the critical first step for us to transform the nature of the relationship between European people and the African people of the world.
