The Color of Compromise

Presented by

“The cumulative effects of personal sins of racism have led to social structures of injustice and violence that make us all accomplices in racism.” — Open Wide Our Hearts, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

Jemar Tisby ’02, Notre Dame alum and author of the book “The Color of Compromise: The Truth About the American Church’s Complicity in Racism,” joins us on the podcast to discuss how the American church has helped create and maintain racist ideas and practices. In our conversation, he details the difference between complicit Christianity and courageous Christianity and focuses on racism as systemic injustice. Jemar also offers concrete solutions for improved race relations and a racially inclusive church. His book is a call from a place of love and desire to fight for a more racially unified church that no longer compromises what the Bible teaches about human dignity and equality.
