We watched Selma tonight. It’s painful to see the way people mistreat and abuse other human beings.
One of the things that struck me tonight was the way many Christian whites were blind to what was happening. Or worse, they participated in the injustice, the hatred, and the cruelty.
And I can’t help but wonder if I have a blindness, too. Am I oblivious to injustice in some ways? Are there times when I stand back and watch when I ought to be doing something to make a difference? Do I care about people who are hurting? Do I care enough?
