University Professor Says God Is a White Racist

University Professor Says God Is a White Racist

Thankfully the days of racism approach their end, as Donald Trump will retire the race card.

Under President Trump, Americans will go back to just being simply ‘Americans’ without hyphenations. Because that’s what prosperity inspires…one love; one nation.

Until then we are left with racists in our midst; mostly Leftist. And Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania Anthea Butler is one such racist.

In an editorial she penned on July 14, she claimed that “America’s God” is a white racist.

Professor Butler wrote at ReligionDispatches.org:

The not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman case has me thinking a lot about a book I first encountered in seminary, Is God a White Racist?, by the Rev. Dr. Bill Jones. As a budding seminary student, it took me by surprise. Now, as a wiser, older professor looking at the needless death of Trayvon Martin, I have to say: I get it.

God ain’t good all of the time. In fact, sometimes, God is not for us. As a black woman in a nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god ain’t my god. As a matter of fact, I think he’s a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.

What nation has no pains? What nation hasn’t left somebody feeling oppressed? I’d like to send Professor Butler there.

Butler laments being black and being a woman. How can either succeed in an America with a racist God? Surely there are no examples of blacks and women “bucking” their God, daring to be successful, now is there Oprah?

Butler continues,

Their god is the god that wants to erase race, make everyone act “properly” and respect, as the president said, “a nation of laws”; laws that they made to crush those they consider inferior.

When the laws were never made for people who were considered, constitutionally, to be three-fifths of a person, I have to ask: Is this just? Is it right? Is God the old white male racist looking down from white heaven, ready to bless me if I just believe the white men like Rick Perry who say the Zimmerman case has nothing to do with race?

You already know the answer: No.

Misuse of the 3/5th Compromise, yet again. And from a “professor.”

White heaven? White men? The what of white light!?

I can’t speak for heaven, but I do know that over almost 400,000 white men fought their brother, cousins, and uncles to free black people. And my bet is that God had a little something to do with the outcome.

Apparently knows what’s in the hearts and minds of millions of Americans of faith, the very Americans whose ancestors shed blood to free blacks; and their progeny who then voted for Barack Obama?

Butler believes in the Gospel according to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, it seems.
