Race. Injustice. Reconciliation. Last week, We tackled some of the most crucial questions facing us in our country today. We all want to make our campus and our world a better place and we hope last week was another small step in that direction. Check out the video below to see a thoughtful conversation on a controversial subject. You can skip to the 10:30 mark if you want to see the beginning of the conversation. Additionally, here are the questions that were asked and the minute marks where you can find them (these may not be 100% accurate, but they will get you close to when the questions are asked): 12:00 Personal Experience with Race 16:45 The Bible and Race 23:20 Why does the Bible talk about how to properly treat slaves instead of how to abolish slavery? 27:00 Is it respectful to engage in something like the Colin Kaepernick kneeling when it brings attention to a bigger issue? 30:45 Is there scriptural evidence that the racial divide will get better? Worse? 36:20 When someone asks us a racially charged questions, do we respond? And how do we respond in love? 38:35 How should we as black males feel when we are around police today? 42:00 How do you deal with someone stuck in their ways? Or someone who is close minded? 44:15 God scattering the nations. Social constructs of Race. How do we reconcile these two things? 50:45 Nature vs. Nurture in regards to Race 54:00 How are we supposed to react as Christians when people get shot while peacefully protesting?
