As one of the minorities (A Blackman) in this country, I, and like all others, have or shall I say had been plunged into a culture that has and will always be in conflict with racism in the church. When you speak of “One of our main problems as black people is that we don't really know who we are." Well, this may be true with the majority of our people (Blacks). However, many are of a consciousness of self--I believing I being one--have discovered the truth of “To know thyself.” Ignorance is inherited from the rejection of change and truth “Change your thinking, and you will change yourself." Remember the words “As a man think, so is he.” Many (Blacks and Whites) possess an exterior knowledge of self that is profound and on a worldly plane of truths: however even to that degree, they are still “Lost in the sauce” of knowing the gift of who they truly are. Knowledge is power, and what greater power is there than that of having the knowledge of self? Spiritually speaking, as long as we as black or white people continue to follow a false doctrine of truth, we will remain bound in ignorance of self. This ignorance produces actions as those you speak of in your book! Polytheism is a chain of bondage (Spiritual belief) placed on the minds and spirits of every person (Black or White), producing deeds that are unfavorable in the eyesight of the “ONE TRUE GOD.” I find your evaluation of “racism in the church” a correct and truthful observation.
