God doesn’t instruct us to repay evil for evil or racism for racism. God doesn’t instruct black people to assume the worst of white people because some white people assume the worst of black people.
My white girlfriend recently said to me: “Sam, thank you for never making me feel bad about being white.”
She said that because in 2020 my skin colour isn’t the most controversial pigment in our relationship—her skin colour is.
Our culture in 2020 doesn’t tell me to feel guilty about my skin colour. Our culture doesn’t tempt her to be ashamed of my skin colour. Our culture doesn’t encourage others to assume the worst about me—I’m not white.
Earlier this week, a clip of Nick Cannon making racist comments about white people received a disturbing amount of support from many black people on social media. In the clip, Nick Cannon suggested white people are genetically and morally inferior to black people.
And as I explained last week, White Fragility is one of the bestselling books right now, even though it’s probably the most anti-white book I’ve ever read.
Making white people feel bad about being white is becoming the norm. Racism against white people is becoming acceptable.
Today, anti-black racism is considered a repulsive sin. Anti-white racism, however, is considered a respectable sin. In fact, anti-white racism has become so respectable, many of us no longer label it as sin. Instead, we’re increasingly labeling anti-white racism as righteousness.
For instance, the whole world has seemingly accepted the narrative that George Floyd was murdered by Derek Chauvin because of racism—strictly because of Derek Chauvin’s skin colour.
A few years ago, as I was walking through a tunnel at a train station, I saw a white woman walking towards me from the other end of the tunnel.
We were the only people in the tunnel. So when she saw me walking toward her, she immediately placed her head down, clutched her purse, hurried to the other side of the tunnel, and rushed past me.
