Just as the inferiority complexes that racism creates in people of color are distortions of our God-given identities, the superiority complexes created for white people in these systems of racism also distort our God-given identities. This is not the full and abundant life that God has for us.
Whiteness is more than the color of someone’s skin — when we use the word “whiteness,” we are referring to the system of thinking (and the social structures built on this system of thinking) that values the cultures, bodies, and contributions of people with white skin above those of people of color. These systems were constructed over generations — there’s plenty to learn and unlearn so that we can be free to live the abundant life God has for us! Here are some resources we recommend to get you started.
