Publisher's Summary

Learn about racism and how it is affecting the multicultural society

Racism has been spread all over the world, like an epidemic disease. We can see a lot of people facing discrimination and unfair treatment at various places due to the difference in their color, race, age, gender, or culture. We are living in a multicultural society where we can experience a mix of all cultures and customs. Racism is prevailing in such a multicultural world. In this book, you will learn about the basic concept of racism and how it has evolved in a multicultural society. 

The key points that are discussed in this book are: 

  • Racism and its importance in a multicultural society 
  • Diversity and cultural difference around the globe 
  • Effects of racism on institutions such as schools, workplace and other government structures. 
  • Racism faced by women 
  • How can we spot racism 
  • How to fight racism 
  • Globalization 

We have to believe and accept that every individual living on this earth has an equal right to practice whatever they want. There is no one superior, and no one inferior to anyone. The differences in culture, religion and customs should be respected and given a fair right to practice. From this book you can understand and embrace the concept of different cultures and how to embed them in our lives, and help those people who are facing racism in their daily lives to live a healthy life with equal availability of all resources such as education, work opportunities, health and well-being, and all such necessities.

So, don’t wait and get your copy now.

The author helps us to understand.

I could not put this audiobook down. I listen to it in two sittings. Being raised in a southern baptist home in Alabama, I’ve grappled with many behaviors I witnessed in the church of my childhood that didn’t fit at all with my understanding of Jesus. The linear historical truth-telling is eye-opening, unsettling, and useful for learning how white supremacy, evangelical Christianity and American nationalism became intertwined. This audiobook answers questions about how generational racism is embedded in church practices that moved from overt to more covert over the years. To make a new way forward, we have to understand the intricacies of the past and present. The author helps us understand.

Listen to this audiobook.

This audiobook was one I recommend to so many people. I have been listening to the author on Pass the Mic for a while now so I was excited to hear that he had an audiobook coming out. I have recently been interested in learning more about American History and how it actually was, not just what our history audiobooks told us, and this audiobook helps with just that. In chronological order, we learn how the church was complacent with racism. Talk about convicting! He catches listeners up to now and through tears and a lot of highlighting/underlining, I can confidently say I learned so much. I highly encourage everyone to listen to this audiobook.

An incredible audiobook

An incredible survey of American history as it relates to race and religion (particularly evangelicalism.) I wish every single professing Christian in the country would listen to this.

Worth it.

This was a heavy audiobook but so worth it. Thank you the author for this labor of love. I highly recommend this audiobook for anyone who is serious about addressing racial issues in this country AND the church. This work isn't easy and we can't bring justice where it is due unless we start. Menace of Racism gives us a start, not a fix, a start.

Easy to understand

What I like most about this audiobook is the timeline and how it outlines the evolution and adaptation of racism and it’s complicity in racism. It gives you enough to understand the historical context while also leaving you wanting to learn and study more! As you listen to it you will naturally see parallels between the past and present which is both enlightening and terrifying. This is a must-listen and deserves to be a required listen for every student and a must-listen for every leader in the church, as well as every believer. This audiobook presents the truth without bias and presents a more complete narrative of the truth about the Church and the racist foundation it is built on.

This audiobook is a must-listen for everyone

This audiobook is a must-listen for every white professing Christian in the United States, young and old. As one of them, I say wholeheartedly that we are indebted to the author for this work of scholarship and prophetic labor.

This is honestly one of the most important book

This is honestly one of the most important audiobooks on race and faith ever explained and it’s such a shame so few Christians will ever take the time to listen to it. I learned so much and it challenged me in ways I didn’t expect. Also, surprising was the list of ways the author makes it practical for us to address the long and ongoing history of racism in American churches.

This audiobook is a great introduction

This audiobook is a great introduction to the ways in which the church in America has played a pivotal role in desecrating the image of God imprinted on our black brother and sisters. The Bible recommends that we confess our sins to each other so we may be healed. I didn't know about these sins. I didn't know about the ways that many of the white men who came before me in America either stood silently or actively engaged in all kinds of oppression. In Paul's letter to the Galatians, we listen about how Peter stopped eating together with non-Jews because of peer pressure. In the same way that Paul accused Peter to his face, we must thank the author for accusing the American Church of much more damnable sins than segregated eating. Peter seems to have repented

It’s definitely a “must-listen!”

I preordered this audiobook (both hardcopy and Audible) when I saw a brief overview of its content! I “listen” it immediately through Audible and then the actual audiobook... I would recommend owning both formats! It’s definitely a “must-listen!”

This audiobook is really very good

This audiobook doesn't pull any punches in pointing out where the church has sinned, but it also doesn't deny mercy in showing how the church can repent and repair. It is both urgent and sympathetic, well-researched and well-explained.

So much insight!

It is hard to listen about how the American church was and I’d complicit in racism, but it is an important listen. the author takes listeners through a historical survey of America and the church, highlighting time and again when the Church could have taken action against systemic racism but failed to do so. the author urges the Church to learn from its past wrongs and to take strong and courageous action to do right by our brothers and sisters of color.

Great item

The author did a great job of giving us a history lesson of racism in America and the American church. I learned a lot while listening to this audiobook. I would recommend this audiobook to any Christian. The audiobook is a heavy listen there were times I had could only listen to one chapter and had to put it down. listen to this audiobook if you are ready to hear the truth. He gives an honest look at racism in the church and how it still affects us today.

Enlightening audiobook

I highly recommend this audiobook for any Christian leader looking to deepen their understanding of racism in America and how has been interwoven with the church over the centuries. Each chapter is well explained, accessible, engaging and provides much-needed context for Christian leaders in America.

Extremely helpful

This audiobook is informative but very accessible. Both seasoned and new listeners to the genre will appreciate this scholarship. The author takes a holistic approach to discuss the racist history of the church in America and leaves no stone unturned in addressing the objections of his critics. I highly recommend this audiobook.

The best audiobook!

The audiobook pulls no punches. It is an honest look at the history of racism in our country and the white evangelical complicity which allowed it to exist. It’s is accessible and beautifully explained. It takes you on a journey that provokes lament and introspection. I wish I could give it 10 stars.

A wonderful audiobook

I bought this audiobook because I didn’t know much about the history of the American church, and now I feel like I have important background information about why some things are the way they are. This is a great listen for any Christian and church member, especially an American. I especially recommend it for those who have felt hopeless about racism and other things tearing up the church getting better — the author is truthful but I think ultimately hopeful, and offers solutions that can be put into action immediately!

I really love it

I'm still listening to the audiobook but its measured, graceful tone stands out so far. the author has put a lot of thought over the years into the race, the Gospel and Christianity. Many should pick up this audiobook so that all of us could wrestle with how to bring forth real racial reconciliation.

A well-explained audiobook

A well-explained yet poignant summary of how the American church missed an opportunity to love and protect their Black neighbors. My heart was so grieved and moved for a more biblical and Christ-like response to not only the heinous slave trade but all the years following to speak and explain and defend the rights of humanity. May God have mercy on this African American generation of those who inherited such a rotten narrative or experience it even now to continue to overcome through Christ and be lifted above their persecutors.

Eye Opening

This audiobook is a great start for anyone interested in the ways that church and race are intertwined. The first and last chapters alone are worth the price of the audiobook --- a great overview, and then a terrific chapter on the "fierce urgency of now". But listen to the whole audiobook, and then check out the author's podcasts -- he has an important perspective.
