- American Christianity's White–Supremacy Problem
Much has been made of white evangelicals' support for Donald Trump in the 2016 election. (According to exit polls, eighty–one per cent of white evangelical Protestants voted for him.)

In November, President Trump will once again be reliant upon the white Christian vote.

- Experiencing Racism in Two Languages with Jim Crow and Colonization
You see, in the Dominican Republic (DR), where I was born and lived to the age of 10, people who were obvious descendants of Africans would call themselves anything but Black. They would call themselves “Indian,” “mestizos,” and even “mulato,” to hide their African heritage.
