SORT BY Relevancy
Racism can be defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called races and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group less desirable, more desirable, inferior or superior. The exact definition of racism is controversial both because there is little scholarly agreement about the meaning of the concept "race", and because there is also little agreement about what does and doesn't constitute discrimination. Some definitions would have it that any assumption that a person's behavior would be influenced by their racial categorization is racist, regardless of whether the action is intentionally harmful or pejorative. Other definitions only include consciously malignant forms of discrimination. Racism include discriminatory behaviors and beliefs based on cultural, national, ethnic, caste, or religious stereotypes. The practice of treating certain groups preferentially, or denying rights or benefits to certain groups, based on racial characteristics is termed “institutional racism”. Stokely Carmichael of the “Black Panthers Movement” is credited for coining the phrase institutional racism in the late 1960s. He defined the term as “the collective failure of an organization to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their color, culture or ethnic origin”.

The rash of killings of young black males by police officers has catapulted us into the dire need to discuss race relations in our communities. More specifically, the killing of Michael Brown has been the catalyst for several protests across the world...yes...THE WORLD...and is forcing us to examine all of our thoughts on who we are as a community, regardless of where that community is located. Siding in the Mike Brown case has practically split along the racial lines. Whether there is an indictment in this case or not, one side is not going to be satisfied with the outcome. Can we survive as a world community after Ferguson? Join us to discuss it and DON'T BITE YOUR TONGUE!!!
There is a Facebook effort titled "Reviving CRAID" discussing the need for public conversations on racial images in worship. This noble effort is investigating the best methods for reviving CRAID in 2014. Imam W. Deen Mohammed gave us C.R.A.I.D early in his leadership and it was quite effective.
Another Facebook group I manage is titled "GIVE GOD NO COLOR." (https://m.facebook.com/groups/136138373208123)
It has been widely received and opened the following exchange :
Last week one of our Focolare friends shared with me a beautiful report. While planning for their annual "Day of Christian Unity" the company that supplies the artwork for this special day sent them a very; as she described it, "a very white American looking image of Jesus." However due to her being a part of our FB group "GIVE GOD NO COLOR" and her love for our concern she called the supply company and told them that they could not accept such an image or any racial depictions. This is very significant. We thank Allah for bringing Imam W. Deen Mohammed and the blessed lady Chiara Lubrich and their respective communities together as ONE! This is a way to advance the message of C.R.A.I.D. to an audience that we could probably never reach.
Join WORDS MAKE PEOPLE on Sunday October 19, 2014 as we discuss C.R.A.I.D; its history and relevancy today.
