I wake up to messages on social media from other Christians calling me a racist, communist, false teacher. Such messages have become as ordinary as my cup of coffee before morning prayer. I receive them because part of my work as a Christian theologian addresses issues of systemic injustice. I never imagined such work would be controversial. Racism -- personal and societal -- still affects the lives of people of color in the United States. Part of the Christian witness involves addressing this among a host of other maladies.
