Evangelicalism’s Racial Blindspot, Explained

This one is a doozy! And it’s both here and in the You Have Permission Podcast feed because it’s just that good. Sociologist Michael O. Emerson breaks down his and Christian Smith’s argument as to why White Evangelical Christians have such a bad track record on racial issues, summarized in their co-authored “Divided by Faith.” This is the best explanation that I have ever heard or read explaining this phenomenon.
