When Claiming Colorblindness Cuts off Conversation

by Mr. Sheehy

As a Christian who is an American ethnic minority, I say first hand Christian colorblindness stings my heart in two ways. First, it goes against God’s intention for ethnic diversity and secondly, its an attempt to superficially remove needed conversations about ethnic diversity inside of the Body of Christ, especially in Evangelicalism. We don’t need to put a gag-order on these talks instead, we need holistically deal with our issues regarding ethnicity to the point Ethnic Conciliation is evident in our; denominational structures, higher academic institutions, conference line-ups, pastoral teams, and interpersonal relationships amongst laity.
