Lori Alexander and ‘Black Pride’ seems like some twisted party game, like Cards Against Humanity, not a genuine subject. Has anyone else noticed that in both Quiverfull and the more Fundamentalist reaches of Evangelical Christianity that race is rarely mentioned? Even in those groups with open links to hate groups like the KKK? Nancy Campbell has stated that one of the big reasons she supports militant fecundity is to outbreed scary brown people. Much of that culture is inherently quite racist in a slithering underground sort of way.
As a result I’m finding Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife’s foray into the world of ‘Black Pride’ curiously misguided at best. It starts with Lori publishing an email or comment she’s received from an African-American follower decrying teaching any sort of racial culture or identity. So Lori jumps in with both feet wrong, but at least she did start out by pointing out that Jesus loves all colors of people. What leaps out at me is her belief that Black Pride supporters have a ‘victim’ mentality.
I don’t think being educated on your ethnicity is the same thing is being divisive, or wrong in any way. I don’t know, what do you think? Racism is clearly wrong, but where does that line up when someone dislikes others from celebrating their heritage?
FYI. I’m not quite back. Not yet. ICE (Costa Rican utilities) has not connected the internet at the new house yet. Now they are saying they don’t know when, but likely next week. The endless manana syndrome. But I’m here at public wifi for this afternoon and will try to schedule a few posts for this week. Sorry about this.
The backyard with the pit dug for the pool…and the dirt is on every surface. Lori would be proud of my constant cleanup.
