From a reader (emphasis is mine):
I have a serious question, even though it’s from an atheist to a believer: why do Christian groups segregate by race? I have friends who respectively go to multiple Asian Bible studies — that is, it seems to be a completely regular Bible study, but all the participants are of Asian descent (sometimes it’s even specific to Chinese or Koreans). I’ve heard of them for other ethnic groups, too. And this is on a college campus, where people don’t already live in homogeneous neighborhoods like they might in the outside world — any segregation is intentional.
As far as I know, they’re not studying Asian-specific parables, just the same stuff as everyone else. It strikes me as odd, and a little disturbing, that people are divided like this even within the same denomination. Can one of the Christian commenters tell me if there’s a completely healthy reason why Bible study is divvied up on racial lines?
