Some short quotes from Off the RACE Track

Here are some short quotes from my new book: Off the RACE Track–From Color-Blind to Color-Kind. To get a copy or download a Kindle version, search for — Off the RACE Track Steve Simms — on Amazon.

“There is much greatness in every shade of human being.”

“Under the skin, people have the same anatomy–human anatomy–not black, white, yellow, or brown anatomy.”

“Color beautifies the world around us. Color also beautifies people.

“Everyone deserves to be comfortable in his/her own skin.”

“I view people of every skin color as people who want to befriend me and I want to get to know them better.”

“One goal of this book is to cultivate and release color kindness in people of every skin complexion.”

“Much of our uneasiness about skin color comes from fake news–from centuries of misinformation.”

“We like to label in-groups and out-groups, but everywhere I look I see colorful shades of the human group.”

“In America today the chasm between whites & blacks is painfully obvious. We need to build bridges.”

“To truly value the various shades of humanity, we need to go beyond color-apathy to color- appreciation.”

“Maybe we could all let go of our negative views of people who are not the same color we are.”

“Let’s break out of the mold of clichés and discuss race in an open, honest, compassionate and heart-felt way.”

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
