Who’s hiring?: Race’s Resume

Race

Address: Our minds
 
Education                
All the fields of inquiry have associated themselves with me, attempting to prove my origin, determine my purpose and influence
 
Objective                  
To further the social gospel of race or the belief that some human beings, based on the social coloring of skin and other physical characteristics, are better than others;  to perpetuate separation and thereby, impede Christ’s ministry of reconciliation
 
Employment           
I have worked in government, law and politics, education, religion, sports, restaurants, hotels, malls and other shopping facilities, cemeteries, hospitals, entertainment, transportation and all forms of media to include social.
