From Slavery to Obama
Racism, the Bible, and the American Dream is a frank discussion, from a Christian perspective, of the prevalence of institutional racism in America, and how that racism affects the lives of those who fall victim to it. Throughout history, the Bible has been erroneously used to justify prejudice and discrimination. This misuse of the Bible has been one of the main catalysts in the perpetuation of racism in America. The purpose of this book is threefold: to dispel any misconception of the Bible as a racist book, to encourage those who realize that racism exists in America, but are apathetic towards this realization, to let go of their apathy, and speak out against racism when the opportunity arises, and to redirect those who erroneously use the Bible as a weapon to justify racial hatred. A secondary aim is to enlighten the reader about the seriousness of institutional racism that does exist in America.
