Racism

We tend to think of slavery in terms of the American Civil War and the African slave trade. Of course, slavery and racism have existed as long as people have, some groups even forcing their own people into slavery or societal oppression (the Greek Spartans or the Indian caste system). In the United States we assume racism died out after the revolutionary Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, or that it only lives on in the deep South.

Unfortunately this is one of those evils of society that doesn't just go away. Nor is it limited to one or two groups—it's not just a black vs. white issue, but includes members of every race against members of every other race. Since the Fall man has been unable to live in complete peace with others, and racism is just one example; slavery is just one of its more radical manifestations.

Today the Sudan is a hotspot for slave traders. India continues to ostracize the lower classes, treating them worse than they treat some animals. The Ku Klux Klan in the United States continues to commit actual hate crimes against non-whites. The issue has not abandoned us or even lessened over the years. Christ promised that He came to bring all nations to himself. If that is so (and we believe it is), then we can't look at those of other races as anything more or less than human beings in need of the grace of God.
