Two links for Thabiti Anyabwile in a row, and this one may be more serious than the last. I’m not much for joining movements, or frankly anything else that smacks of being practical.  I don’t understand racism, or even what it feels like to be oppressed.  The idea that the proof that someone is being oppressed is the fact that they feel that way is slack-jawed incomprehensible to me.  But Thabiti says so, and I’m inclined to believe him, because I trust him when he tells me how I ought to feel.

Now I’d like him to tell me what to do.  He’s issuing a challenge to the orthodox Evangelical church to form an organization, a campaign, a something. I’m no good at that sort of thing, and I’m pretty sure I’m nobody in the body of Christ, but point me to the bandwagon.  I’ll get on it.
