Episode Info: How can you approach and learn about racism while maintaining your conservative Christian values? I’ve invited Professor George Yancey, Ph.D. on Fed and Fearless to discuss this topic.   About Professor George Yancey, Ph.D. Dr. George Yancey is a Professor of the Institute for Studies of Religion and Sociology at Baylor University. He has published several research articles on the topics of institutional racial diversity, racial identity, atheists, cultural progressives, academic bias, and anti-Christian hostility. His books include Compromising Scholarship (Baylor University Press) a book that explores religious and political biases in academia, So Many Christians, So Few Lions, a book that assesses Christianophobia in the United States, Beyond Racial Gridlock, a Christian book which articulates a mutual obligations approach to racial issues, and, with Michael Emerson, Transcending Racial Barriers, an academic book that articulates a mutual obligations approach. He is currently working on research contrasting conservative and progressive Christians.   About This Episode I’ve invited Dr. George Yancey on the Fed and Fearless podcast to talk about how Christians can approach and learn more about racism in America. We discuss the four main theories that drive people's beliefs around racism: colorblindness, Anglo-conformity, multiculturalism, and White responsibility. George presents an alternative approach to these four secular frameworks that he calls Mutual Responsibility. It's a Christian-based approach whereby we recognize that people of all races have a sin nature that must be accounted for. This means that everyone has an obligation to work toward healthy interracial communications to solve racial problems. His vision offers hope that people of all races can walk together on a shared path--not as adversaries, but as partners. George shares some practical ways conservative Christians can approach racism while staying aligned with their beliefs. And overall, we need to be more open to listening to people from different backgrounds to us. Because it’s only through listening and having open conversations that we can begin to move forward and solve our nation’s problems. Did this episode resonate with you?
