If you're college professor teaching #criticalracetheory, you owe it your students to have the read black alternative views like Thomas Sowell as way to help students see that #CRT has flaws & is merely a theory. @jasonriley & I explain why. via @YouTube
Race and culture would be a great book for professors to include in their courses on race.
If you assign Kendi, you also need to assign "Conflict of Visions." amazon.com/Conflict-Visio…
If you read Ta Nehisi Coates, you need to read "Black Rednecks and White Liberals." amazon.com/Black-Rednecks…

I walked passed a pre-K to 8th grade private school in lower Manhattan today around 3:30ish. Only two races were in a long line to get kids: Asian & white. I wonder if the parents notice. Not saying it's wrong. It is what it is. I don't think blacks/Latinos will ever live there.
I'm not saying it's wrong but the neighborhood is clearly segregated such that the only people of color there (black/brown) are the employees of Asians & whites. Black professionals don't live there, on average, and often move South (like Atlanta) to enjoy what I witnessed.
It's really fascinating because people assume that New York City is an equally multi-ethnic mix of people. The schools tell the story. I was an "aha" moment: there are parts of life in New York City that are exclusively for Asians, whites, & wealthy European foreign nationals.

Os Guinness says the book of Exodus is the center of God's work in human history. He's right & the Matt 28:18-20-focussed evangelicals are misguided. The covenant of redemption is the center. The black church models centering on "Big God" Exodus theology. amazon.com/Magna-Carta-Hu…
Biggest Guinness take away: so many black students were lied to regarding the theology of the traditional black church & owe many now black evangelicals & black church leaders a massive apology. Herman Bavinck exposes the theological flaw of American "Great Commission" types.
He explains the George Whitefield inspired flaw this way: "[Evangelicalism] has an aggressive character, seeks only conversion, and looks for the seat of faith in the will...But it regard conversion as a sudden, momentary, and immediate act...

In Chapter 6, it becomes glaringly clear that Voddie Baucham does not understand what the "Sufficiency of Scripture" actually means. He straw mans the definition, divorces it from the Reformed Tradition, and then critiques David Platt, John O, Eric Mason, Ligon Duncan, & others.
This explains so much. Baucham's personal definition of the sufficiency doctrine is 1920s fundamentalism rather than Reformed. He says, "there's not a better book to address men on the issue of race in America than the Bible." But the "issue of race" includes economics, e.g.
The Sufficiency of Scripture is about faith. "The whole counsel of God concerning all things necessary for His own glory, man’s salvation, faith and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced from Scripture"(WCF 1.6).

I'm beginning to think that Presbyterians have a distinct and unique understanding of the Sufficiency of Scripture doctrine that makes them foreigners & aliens in "Reformed" Evangelicalism. Presbyterians:
"The whole counsel of God concerning all things necessary for his own glory, man’s salvation, faith and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced from Scripture..." thewestminsterstandards.com/wcf-chapter-1-…
Therefore, on matters not related to faith, other sources are needed and can helpful: sociology, psychology, science, math, philosophy, economics, etc. The neo-Calvinist, 1689ers, RBs, don't seem to believe this. They take sufficient to mean "exhaustive" so CRT scares them.

The @jeff_hemmer has written the*best* book on masculinity in a Christian context in print (I've ever read). He's the focus of my podcast this week. It is the most challenging & encouraging book about the masculine journey you'll ever read. #DadsMatter podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/man…
A father & son(15 yr-old) spent 10 months going out for meals to discuss this book. The son shared his experience with me, "Being able to discuss each chapter with my dad has been a wonderful experience, and I hope it has helped me grow as a man." amazon.com/Why-Black-Live…
Father/Son working through this together forced key issues. The father: "We would take turns asking each other the discussion questions. And those questions prompted other questions. I want him to feel the freedom to talk to me as a man and let me know where I can improve."

Elephant in the room: Asian Americans seem to prefer relationships with white people. “White supremacy seduces non-Blacks into believing that the further distance between them & Blackness the greater opportunity to become as privileged as Whites.” Exhibit A: NYC evangelicals.
“Not surprisingly, Asian immigrants and citizens have, at times, tacitly accepted this agreement.” If you don’t believe him, go over to Instagram & look at the pictures of NYC whites & Asians. You won’t see black people. I think we need a separate black/Asian conversation.
If you come to New York City (pre-COVID) my black friends noticed, in bars and restaurants, you won’t see tables of Asians mixed with Blacks or Latinos. There are real tensions. Prof. Jospeh: “We must also recognize that anti-Asian racism is a form of white supremacy.”
