"Alt-right" has no clear definition or philosophical foundations. It is also not new. Groups like American Renaissance have been around for decades.

Poor Donald Runs For Black Cover

Obviously Trump doesn't give a damn about the black vote. But he does care very much about the non-racist white working and middle class vote.

Trump, Wilmington, And The Importance Of History

That Donald Trump called for armed revolt in a city most famous for just that seems like too much of a coincidence, no matter what his campaign has to say. Even in the unlikely chance that this is some grotesque version of the stars aligning, it is not a mistake of history.

White Supremacy And My Black and Asian Daughter

I made peace with the fact that in the United States I could be in the "wrong" at the "wrong" time and be shot and killed by police because a man or woman who feels threatened by my presence and calls 9-1-1. But I certainly have not accepted that for my Black, Chinese and Korean American daughter.

I have long said that, as troubling as is Donald Trump, his goings on are not nearly as troubling as is the fact that so many people follow him and love him to pieces, no matter what he says.

The "Balak" passage of scripture from the Book of Numbers is an exceptionally good story.

We, America?

Calls for compulsory love and oneness as a cure to white supremacy imply that both black Americans and white Americans share culpability when it comes to injustice in America, and that a magic wand of love will neutralize all instances of inequality.

This Great America

Pastor Renita Marie, M.Div. | Posted 07.22.2016 | Politics
Pastor Renita Marie, M.Div.

"Make America Great Again" is a call of action to return to white-male dominated rule, to normalize the terror which already stretches as far as the system will allow, and to empower women through misogynistic falsehoods. America has never been a great country.

The Sugarcoated Language Of White Fragility

For a while now, I've been thinking about how terms like "white privilege," "inclusion" and "unconscious bias" all sound just... too nice. Don't they seem a little on the pleasant side for words used to address a system of racist oppression?

The criminalization of black people, coupled with white supremacy and its belief that black people are inherently inferior to white people has caused a multitude of problems.

To the misguided folks, who use legalized murder of black men as an opportunity to publicly chastise the black community, shame on you! Valid concerns or not, the timing of your crusade will never be appropriate.

The death of Black people at the hands of law enforcement has become so commonplace and routine that many of us who are African-American have managed to become simultaneously outraged and psychologically numb.

On Struggle In Our Historical Moment

The idea that love is the guiding force serving to bring U.S. citizens together is an old fallacy without historical evidence. This is theological slight of hand, a theologically driven wish without grounding. This nation is built on bodies brutalized and disregarded.

Having traveled so far toward building a society where different kinds of people can live together in peace, hold each other in a degree of mutual respect, and work together to achieve common purposes, are we now going to let the destructive beast of bigotry back out of its cage?
