The provocative questions that have been designed for persons of color and persons of non-color in this new book on the subject of racism can no longer be swept under the rug; ignored or simply discarded as a result of denial, because they deserve answers. With this in mind, Robert Upton whose opinion and counsel are highly sought after on matters concerning racial diversity, race relations, racial tensions, racial reconciliation and racism in the church, introduces Racism@Work Among The LORDs People. Only when the heart has been pierced and what is on the inside has been exposed by the light can the real truth be found. Questions often provide further thoughts that can lead to answers being found and healing taking place.
Racism@Work Among The LORDs People will help those who have a problem with prejudice, bigotry and racism as well as those who need to find healing as a result of being wounded by these spiritual issues. The book also provides the reader with ten devotionals that have been written on the subject of the Bible and Racism. Practical suggestions are provided for pastors and their congregations that will assist them in obtaining racial diversity within their churches. A comprehensive analysis of demographic trends for the U.S. population has been provided, and more importantly, the direct implications that these trends will have on the Church are examined. The Appendixes Section includes a Resource list of consultants, organizations and governmental agencies where further information can be obtained. Ten Best Practices have been provided to help readers develop cross-cultural friendships and racially diverse organizations. Also, a Definitions of Terms page has been included that ! provides some practical definitions for persons of color, persons of non-color, prejudice, bigotry and racism. Prejudice, Bigoted and Racist Thoughts/ Statements are examined that can create barriers to achieving racial diversity within the Church. A Suggested Reading Section has been included that provides a comprehensive list of other books that have been published on the topic of racism. Finally, a Self-Assessment Tool has been provided that will help a reader set goals and identify practical action steps that can be taken to address racism.
The world is constantly changing around us and is becoming more racially diverse. The White population in the United States is aging and shrinking in number. It has now been projected that sometime after 2050 that Whites will account for less than half of the U.S. population. As a result in the near future, the people that you will most likely encounter in the business world, workplace, community, neighborhood, grocery store, health club and church will be persons of color.
