ike many Americans, I have been shocked and deeply disturbed by the videos showing the mistreatment and ultimately the killing of George Floyd and other Black Americans. While I knew that racism still exists in our society, the depth and breadth of it was a surprise. Like a fish in water, I assumed that everyone is treated the way I am. The cell phone videos and stories from one black person after another show that assumption is just not true. It became clear to me that part of Jesus’ call to love my neighbor included doing some hard self-reflection, learning, and action related to racial equality and justice.
