This condition must end I think every white person in America should read this book to grasp just how bad it is to be Black in America and the damage it does to both races
We have far to go
Here Thurman’s summation of Jesus’ life and teachings: “You must abandon your fear of each other and fear only God. You must not indulge in any deception and dishonesty, even to save your lives. Your words must be Yea-Nay; anything else is evil. Hatred is destructive to hated and hater like. Love your enemy, that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven.”
"The basic fact is that Christianity as it was born in the mind of this Jewish teacher and thinker appears as a technique of survival for the oppressed. That it became, through the intervening years, a religion of the powerful and dominant, used as an instrument of oppression, must not tempt us into believing that it was thus in the mind and life of Jesus."
There is tremendous wisdom in this book and even though it was written many decades ago, there is honesty and scholarship that is applicable for today's reader.
