Quote of the Week

"Make no mistake, there is no end of racism. It lurks insidiously in literally tens of millions of souls. Some scholars estimate that as many as 25 percent of whites--45 million--are still hard-core racists. While far fewer than years ago, consider this alarming result: for every two African Americans, there are three hard-core racist whites . . . Millions of these hard-core white racists are in our nation's Christian churches. What is the church doing wrong that racists are comfortable in our pews, choirs and Sunday school classes--even in our pulpits?"

Chris Rice, author of More Than Equals and Co-Director of the Duke Center for Reconciliation
