entrenched myth of white supremacy and white privilege
Lecture Four
To what degree can white citizens of the United States of America be dis-embedded from the entrenched myth of white supremacy and white privilege?  Indeed, the social and cultural realities of the U.S. have had profound relations on community relations as far as cultural diversity and inclusivity is concerned. Goodwin (2020) asserted that although moments of racial progress can be identified as exemplified by the key developments witnessed in housing, education, economic opportunities and social relations, the public conversation on racism tend to disproportionately focus on whiteness and on the parameters of white comfort as the basis for analyzing racial discrimination and prejudice.
From a theological perspective, Wytsma (2017) pointed out Christians and other religious adherents in their fallen human state are just as vulnerable to the sins of racial discrimination, and most importantly, responsible for idolizing a subjective narrative of white supremacy, subconsciously and/or deliberately. Therefore, whilst attempts to address racism and its consequences has historically emphasized the role of the federal and state governments in changing the status quo, the fusion of Christianity and whiteness must be seen as a key impediment behind the lack of racial progress. Similarly, Roberts (2020) insisted that the centralization of whiteness cannot be undone; implying that those who are left behind by the entrenched values of whiteness, citizenship and ownership have little or no choice as far as draw of homogeneity is concerned. These findings indicates that  whilst the recent years have witnessed a shift toward a more multi-ethnic vision of Christianity, the decentralization of whiteness represents a blatant attempt to position racism as one of the key cultural realities that forms the basis of the Church culture and Christian theology at large.
Can racial/ethnic minorities be saved from poverty?
