This is so intensely and openly racist yet somehow is acceptable by our “elites.”
A New York Times Best Seller titled, A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal, includes a prayer called “Prayer of a Weary Black Woman” that asks God to “help me to hate white people.”
I’m not kidding.
Please help me to hate white people. Or at least to want to hate them. At least, I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively. I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist.
“The offending prayer was written by Chanequa Walker-Barnes, Ph.D. According to her bio, she is a “theologian and psychologist” and “her mission is to serve as a catalyst for healing, justice, and reconciliation.”
So, wanting to hate white people serves that mission? Really?
As you can see in the above screenshots, the whole prayer is a hateful screed against white people, and even specifically calls out “Fox News-loving, Trump-supporting voters.”
My prayer is that you would help me to hate the other white people—you know, the nice ones. The Fox News-loving, Trump-supporting voters who “don’t see color” but who make thinly veiled racist comments about “those people.” The people who are happy to have me over for dinner but alert the neighborhood watch anytime an unrecognized person of color passes their house...Lord, if you can’t make me hate them, at least spare me from their perennial gaslighting, whitemansplaining, and white woman tears.
…The editor of the book, Sarah Bessey, says recent outrage about the book, and Chanequa Walker-Barnes’s prayer in particular, is not justified, and points to the line in the prayer that says, “I’m not talking about the white antiracist allies who have taken up this struggle against racism with their whole lives…”
In another prayer it asks, “Lord, if it be your will, harden my heart. Stop me from striving to see the best in people. Stop me from being hopeful that white people can do and be better. Let me imagine them instead as white-hooded robes standing in front of burning crosses.”
This is disgusting racism. We should call it what it is. It’s urging people of one race to hate another. This is disgusting and anti-Christian. So yeah, it kinda’ fits today’s leftists perfectly.
