On our previous episode, Dan & Ellen took a backseat to the stories of five Christians of color, told in their own words. This episode is a more standard Depolarize approach: dissecting and responding to these voters’ answers to Dan’s questions, and comparing them to what we heard from White Evangelicals (on either side of Trump) earlier this season.
4:05- Re-meet our voters
6:05- Why is it difficult for white Christians to talk about our “whiteness”?
12:28- Did Trump’s election make them feel unsafe?
15:33- Pro-life ambiguities: the view from their side
25:29- Why Christians of color might be less likely to vote Republican
27:25- What is the gospel of Jesus Christ, in their own words?
32:18- How should the teachings of Jesus inform a voter?
39:37- Why they didn’t vote for Trump
50:03- What have been their interactions with Trump supporters?
53:56- What do they wish white Christians understood about their communities?
1:04:56- “2-4% Neanderthal”: the arbitrariness of racism
1:08:23- What do they love about America?
