One Tribe Current Post

Can Anglos (European Americans) only embrace ethnic diversity as long it comes over to the Anglo “cultural house”? This cultural house includes norms, values, cultural dimensions and attribution. The cultural house can also include acceptance of living under the advantages of the clandestine covering of White Privilege. Not speaking out against ethnic bias i.e. a sin of commission or a sin of omission i.e.quietly standing by in lieu of this privilege is falling short in our Christian testimony.

We must consider the words of Martin Niemöller, a protestant pastor who opposed Adolf Hitler. “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out — because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak out for me.” -Martin Niemöller

    This is a very relevant post written by a woman of wisdom who has the gravitas of understanding. A clear voice is refreshing to hear amongst all of the cluttered hyperbole that we are bombarded with continually.

    Thank you Angie for your outstanding post!
