A friend in Jackson TN
Conversation overheard in the Post Office while waiting in line: Two Caucasian ladies were discussing a power outage when an African American lady speaks up and says, yeah I live one street over, and I lost power too.” When she moved to the counter, the one Caucasian lady says to the other one, “I didn’t know I had any of them near me.” The other lady replies, “I have a Japanese, Two Mexicans, and a Black on my street. Just all kinds moving in. It’s like they’re just taking over.”
Cross burning in GA–Really!!?!?!!
Checking a house for rent in Suburban Nashville, a sweet middle-aged christian (church of Christ) neighbor tried to delicately tell us that the school system was lily white, and she fumbled through some terrible expressions, apologizing for a few. Sigh.
I know it’s everywhere, but at least in NJ people are more likely to have been exposed to different cultures, races, religions, and personally know individuals so it’s more difficult to have a cartoonish concept of any group of people.
Pray that I don’t play along with sinful culture, and can lovingly speak the truth when it comes to people created in God’s Image.
