Being a better anti-racist by Pastor Laquaan Malachi
"Racism is America’s original sin. Methodism in its various forms, has been all too willing to benefit from this sin and we continue to benefit today. The fact that our churches are overwhelmingly white is not an innocent coincidence. In order to serve justice as God has called us to there must be real reconciliation and real reparations."
