Allow me to say firstly, you are an artist and that’s how people view you. They don’t believe you have the insight to look at the world unless it’s from the view of a christian lens, also truth must be told; you’re black! I have to say you have put yourself in a precarious situation. You want to talk about the subject of racism. My question is, do you really want to be a black man, speaking to a white identity about a subject they may know more about than you. Racism white supremacy runs deep, deeper than you will ever know or understand. You made the first mistake by referencing it by calling it racism. I dare to say you or many blacks do not know the definition of racism. Racism isn’t about liking someone. 1. It is a group concept, your god created it. 2. It is based on economics, color only was included during the 1500’s because of enslavement. 3. It is about groups that are competing for control of resources, wealth and power to use it to benefit “their” people. once they get enough , they can shut down, enslave another group. This is the very reason you can’t be a racist. Please understand this, because what you don’t understand will only confuse you!

The only way to speak on this subject is honestly, are people ready to acknowledge the very subject of your jesus and his white identity.  All of this matters! Race identity is within your bible, Jesus says he’s only interested in the house of Israel. Whoever creates the religion creates the god identity and how that god looks. Your history is a stolen one, think about it this way. If you were the first created in Ethiopia; what happened? Our history was before and after slavery.

Understand young brother, you can’t hide under the guise of christianity, it only further hides truth. Are you going to talk about enslavement, how land is taken, now and then. Speak about the issue of gentrification as James Baldwin so eloquently referred to it as negro removal. Okay, what about housing policies , employment insurance, social security, why we make up more black bodies in the prison industrial complex, redlining. In 1910 they started zoning cities by race, hence came ghettos. Let’s talk about bad loans, G.I. Bill, inferior education. Read about how the new deal affected blacks, Fear Itself: The New Deal and the Origins of Our Time by Ira Katznelson. If you want to find out why your message about racism will ruin your career in white circles. Think about what your doing before you continue, you’ll find out white christians aren’t as tolerable/tolerant as you think. This subject goes so much deeper than you think. We have to deal with this subject head on, don’t be ashamed. I used to be confused, I’m less confused today. I put black first, not religion! I left religion or christianity alone awhile ago, I’m able to look at individuals and cultures more carefully. Not through the lens of a god or bible, you will only believe you’re correct and everyone else in wrong or going to HELL.
