1. There is the recent frantic efforts to get rid of the Confederate flag as if it meant the same thing to African Americans as the Swastika did for Jews. As a northerner who grew up in the south, I am somewhat mystified. It wasn't my flag, but I had not viewed it as a symbol of oppression. What is peculiar about this exercise is that the screaming is coming from the left, who don't seem to know that the Confederate flag was the flag of the Democratic party. Isn't that a bit like the neo-NAZIs suddenly taking offense at the Swastika? I am all for repentance and forgiveness, but this has a certain surreal character that I can't quite grasp.
2. Then there is the resignation of the president of the University of Missouri who doesn't seem to be able to bring the little racist incidents to a stop. Now being a Christian, I certainly believe that "all men are CREATED equal", but Christian beliefs are unconstitutional, especially in a state school, so I would be reluctant to condemn a non-Christian for violating Christian teaching with his racism. We must also note that these days every student at the school knows that every man, women, transgendered, queer, polygendered, xenogendered, ... did not EVOLVE equal" - no matter what the vice chancellor for diversity, inclusion and equity says - so maybe someone can explain to me what the secular principle is that is being violated? In fact the students know these things because it is mandated by the government that all children be taught these things. OK, so there is a law against racism, which we should certainly obey, but the law is in direct conflict with the teachings of the university regarding the origin of humanity/huwomanity so it will likely have no more force than marijuana laws, which are likewise in direct conflict with other university teachings.
There are more such things I could note, but will stop here. As I said, my Christian theology compels me to examine myself periodically for any racist tendencies, even if they are merely in my thoughts, and eliminate them. America, however, is not a Christian nation, nor do I understand the principles that it appears and/or claims to be following.
