Atonement as Activism – The American Interest

Today’s consciousness-raising on race is less about helping black people than it is about white people seeking grace.

“Over the past several years…,” writes John McWhorter in the American Interest, “whites across the country have been taught that it isn’t enough to understand that racism exists. Rather, the good white person views themselves as the bearer of an unearned ‘privilege’ because of their color….This brand of self-flagellation has become the new form of enlightenment on race issues. It qualifies as a kind of worship…”

This form of worship is indeed becoming the doctrine in “progressive” secular circles as well as in many supposedly non-doctrinal Unitarian Universalist churches. — MHP
