(1) So am I to assume you despise the Black church & its legacy when you reference how horrible the American church is? What about Korean, Vietnamese, & Latino churches? How many have you visited & how familiar are you w/ them since you think the “American” church is so horrible.

(2) I remember several years ago being invited to speak to a Church made up of American Tibetans. Such a beautiful people & faith. Do you think there church sucks too? Or, do you still think only White people qualify as “American” & White Christians as faith representatives.
(3) Some of you, even with Black Lives Matter in your bio, don’t seem to really believe Black Lives Matter. Or that Black faith matters. You keep presenting “American” as synonymous with White & White Christians as the representatives of American faith & beloved, its racist. ❤️
(4) Limiting the Faith of America to what White people believe & assessing all of America based upon White people’s experiences & culture is heavy handed White Supremacy. It’s ironic tho cuz it’s constantly being done by people who claim to be Allie’s & anti-White Supremacy. 😔
(5) Not tryna shame or make you feel guilty, but I am trying to really drive home how offensive it is when you generalize America as White & American faith as White. The erasure hurts, & it isn’t loving or supportive towards no-White communities. It’s the total opposite. ❤️
