Dave points out how we are still dealing with slavery, and I very much agree. Not only do we see this in the structure of our government, but more importantly in how we live with each with other.
I am convinced that racism is the modern term for original sin. By this I mean where sin originates, which is from seeing ourselves as apart from God. If we don’t see God in ourself, we cannot see God in everyone and everything around us. In short, we see ourself and others and from there we see ourself as better than others.
We cannot begin to see ourself as one with other people of different cultures and races until we recognize Yahweh in everyone and myself.
