069 - White Blessing

On this Episode we discuss a local Atlanta mega church pastor that has recently made a splash on the national scene by making one of the most tone deaf statements ever when it comes to race. In his world the worst part of racism in America is having to deal with the term White Privilege so he suggested calling it a White Blessing. We discuss who he is, how he is a much bigger influence on the evangelical church than some of us ever imagined, and the fallout of this statement. We wrap up on a good note for a change and talk about the Supreme Court decision that a 1960's Federal Civil Rights Law now covers gay and transgender workers.
