"In a Dec. 21, 2014 article about the shooting, the Los Angeles Times referred to the New York City protests as 'anti-police marches,' which is grossly inaccurate and illustrates the problem of perception the protestors are battling. The marches are meant to raise awareness of double standards, lack of adequate police candidate screening, and insufficient training that have resulted in unnecessary killings. Police are not under attack, institutionalized racism is."
We're not there yet, but we recognize the Gospel demands we work to end racism and increase justice, peace, and compassion for ALL the whole human family. So we commit ourselves to this anti-racism work in Christ's name.
