Thank you for writing this. I attended for years a “multicultural” non-denominational church in the South where white people did these exact things. I never knew it as a disengaged weekly attendee, but once I started working in the church office with programs as the only minority serving poor people (primarily people of color)……I started to see and hear things that I just couldn’t believe. The straw that broke the camels back was the inauguration of the first African-American POTUS. The long-time white pastor from Idaho all but called him a nigger devil. He used lots of terms like dark, black times, anti-Christ. All of which were codes Southern Black folks, regardless of education, know well.
