53 | The Persistence of Anti-Blackness with Sean Capener

Sean Capener (@CapenerSean) wants us to think capitalism, anti-blackness, and Christianity at the same time. In this episode, Sean interrogates what 'whiteness' and 'blackness' are, the emergence of anti-blackness and its persistence, liberalism's progress narrative, and the Church's failure to adequately acknowledge and confront its internal contradictions and tensions drawn along lines of race. Maybe Du Bois was on to something when he said, "Whiteness is the ownership of the earth forever and ever, Amen!"
