About This Episode

I’ve invited Dr. George Yancey on the Fed and Fearless podcast to talk about how Christians can approach and learn more about racism in America. We discuss the four main secular theories that drive people’s beliefs around racism: colorblindness, Anglo-conformity, multiculturalism, and White responsibility.

George presents an alternative approach to these four secular frameworks that he calls Mutual Responsibility. It’s a Christian-based approach whereby we recognize that people of all races have a sin nature that must be accounted for.

This means that everyone has an obligation to work toward healthy interracial communications to solve racial problems. His vision offers hope that people of all races can walk together on a shared path – not as adversaries, but as partners.

George shares some practical ways conservative Christians can approach racism while staying aligned with their beliefs. And overall, we need to be more open to listening to people from different backgrounds to us. Because it’s only through active listening and having open conversations that we can begin to move forward and solve our nation’s problems.

“If we really care as a culture about everybody’s health, then we need to look at how somebody’s ethnicity affects their needs when it comes to health and diet.” (31:34)

“If someone’s going to critique something like critical race theory, then you have to at least read what it’s about and not just hear from, for example, your uncle what he thought about it.” (39:38)

“I think that the solution is in a collaboration with one another to find solutions that we can all agree with. I call them Way-To-Win Solutions.” (50:54)
