95 Theses for Christian Racial & Ethnic Unity: #47

And until the white body writhes with red rage, until the white heart heaves with black tremors, until the white head bows before yellow dreams and tan schemes and olive screams for a different world, any communion claimed will be a contrivance of denial.  A theologian—speaking of resurrection, in a body not bearing the scars of its own “crucifixion”?  Impossible!
