If President George Washington had been black . . .

If President George Washington had been black,
Would America have made skin color a big deal?
Would we have held people in lifelong bondage
Based on nothing more than the shade of their skin?
Or would the words, “All men are created equal,”
Have been equally applied to all people?

Things could have been different,
But we can’t undo history.
However, there’s no need to deny it.
Perhaps we can be honest about history,
Learn from it, and overcome its injustice.
Maybe America can get off the race track.

I wrote a book to try to help acknowledge truth, face injustice, and move beyond it to heart-felt equality: Off the RACE Track–From Color-Blind to Color-Kind. Click on the title to learn more.



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
