Episode 2: Christianity & Race (Pt. 1)

 

In episode 2, the hosts discuss the issue of race relations in America and how the church and the Christian should respond. Part 1 contains most of the political segment of the discussion, with the Christian application being covered mostly in part 2.

Recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, involving a Neo-Nazi terrorist attack on counter-protesters at a white nationalist rally are discussed. The racist, ultra-nationalist hate groups were protesting the removal of Confederate statues from city property. Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other leftist groups were there to counter-protest against the alt-right extremists. Violence broke out when Antifa clashed with the Nazis and the protests came to blows. The violence reached a climax when a white supremacist crashed his car into the crowd, killing one woman and injuring 19 others.

Also covered are the problems with violence in political protest and the high standard for non-violence set by people like Ghandi, Mandela, and especially Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

There is also an examination of the problems rooted in the current political climate of the US. The hosts explore the pressure cooker that has resulted from rival groups who all feel they are marginalized and underrepresented. They discuss the role of President Donald Trump’s surprise election and unorthodox political style in empowering the alt-right.
