Zimmerman Verdict Shows God is a 'white Racist,' Ivy League Prof Says

Quote:
The not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman case has me thinking a lot about a book I first encountered in seminary, Is God a White Racist?, by the Rev. Dr. Bill Jones. As a budding seminary student, it took me by surprise. Now, as a wiser, older professor looking at the needless death of Trayvon Martin, I have to say: I get it.

God ain’t good all of the time. In fact, sometimes, God is not for us. As a black woman in a nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god ain’t my god. As a matter of fact, I think he’s a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.

When George Zimmerman told Sean Hannity that it was God’s will that he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, he was diving right into what most good conservative Christians in America think right now. Whatever makes them protected, safe, and secure, is worth it at the expense of the black and brown people they fear.

Their god is the god that wants to erase race, make everyone act “properly” and respect, as the president said, “a nation of laws”; laws that they made to crush those they consider inferior.

When the laws were never made for people who were considered, constitutionally, to be three-fifths of a person, I have to ask: Is this just? Is it right? Is God the old white male racist looking down from white heaven, ready to bless me if I just believe the white men like Rick Perry who say the Zimmerman case has nothing to do with race?

You already know the answer: No.

The lamentation of the African-American community at yet another injustice, the surprise and disgust of others who understand, stand against this pseudo-god of capitalisms and incarceration that threaten to take over our nation.

While many continue to proclaim that the religious right is over, they’re wrong. The religious right is flourishing, and unlike the right of the 1970s, religious conservatism of the 21st century is in bed with the prison industrial complex, the Koch brothers, the NRA—all while proclaiming that they are “pro-life.” They are anything but. They are the ones who thought that what George Zimmerman did was right, and I am sure my inbox will be full of well-meaning evangelical sermons about how we should all just get along, and God doesn’t see race.

Please send them elsewhere.

As a historian of American and African-American religion, I know that the Trayvon Martin moment is just one moment in a history of racism in America that, in large part, has its underpinnings in Christianity and its history.

Those of us who teach American Religion have a responsibility to tell all of the story, not just the nice touchy-feely parts. When the good Christians of America are some of its biggest racists, one has to consider our moral responsibility to call out those who clearly are not for human flourishing, no matter what ethnicity a person is. Where are you on that scale? I know where I am.

Re: Zimmerman Verdict Shows God is a 'white Racist,' Ivy League Prof Says

she has a point with "god is not for us".. Actually, I don't see how any black person in America can be a christian. Religion--especially CHRISTIANITY is a tool for control. Slaves were not allowed to read but you teach them christianity. Also, that whole nonsense about "turn the other cheek".

But, it took the death of Trayvon Martin and the Zimmerman verdict to come to this conclusion?..

Black people just need to quit crying and blaming everything on being black, take some responsibility.

I am so SICK of the race card is it out there, sure it is. Is it as prevalent as claimed, by good old Sharpton, Jackson, etc. um no.
What amazes me about this whole thing is people are upset because of profiling Travyon lead to his death. So in a few different states their solution to profiling young black as criminals, is to riot, loot, and attack random people. I can't be the only person shaking my head about that one. Thanks jackasses for setting us back about 20yrs.

This is one of the most preposterous flights of fancy I have ever read in my short 37 years on this planet. Even among the ranks of some of the most delusional and diseased minds in contemporary history such as Marshall Applewhite and David Icke could possibly aspire to the level of nonsensical and convoluted ramblings that this lady as successfully managed to communicate from some of the darkest corners of human consciousness imaginable.

She's whoever you want her to be. She can be some unknown professor at some rinky dink college, or the Queen of all black people.

I happen to think she's the bride of Frankenstein.
