Scripture: Psalm 62:11-12
White people in America have had power over people of color for over 400 years. Now is the time we look in the mirror and ask ourselves how we dismantle the systems of injustice that white people in America have benefited from since our country was founded. It is not the responsibility of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) to tell white people how to do it; it is white people’s responsibility to learn about the structures of power that are in place and how to bring equity to all systems. And that can begin in individual homes and with families through learning, taking action, and praying.
