Robert P. Jones appeared on The Buchanan and Seaton Show on January 8, 2021 to discuss his book White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity. Full disclaimer I grew up in the black Southern Baptist Church in a suburb of Chicago. This book confirmed everything that I instinctually believed about the cognitive dissonance of being black in America and voluntarily remaining a member of that denomination.
Dr. Jones’ book is an exhaustive examination of the origins of racism in Christianity dating back to European pre-imperialism through today. You can listen to the interview below. If you have ever contemplated the intersection of religion, race, history, and present-day America, add this book to your library and share it with someone else.
