In episode 30, we dive head first into the recent riots over George Floyd’s death and the national stories of Breonna Taylor and Ahmuad Arbery’s deaths. This episode covers these events, police brutality, racism, and the Church.
A personal friend recently asked an honest question on social media in response to the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery: I hate these meaningless killings…(but) why does it seem like when black men kill white men it’s not as big of a deal?
I’m thankful for my friend who asked this question. It’s so important to be humble and seek constructive conversation, with a heart to learn, when approaching such polarizing subjects as racism, which I appreciate about my friend. I felt like it was a good question whose answer would help bring clarity to people out there who might not understand why stories like Ahmaud’s go viral. So I hope this blog article is helpful in giving some context. I hope it’s done in a non-judgmental way and in a way that people of all skin colors and cultures will find approachable and helpful. I hope it can bring some transformation to individuals and to our country.
