God: “The Big, White Racist” Who Presumably is Male and Dead
Religion associate professor and MSNBC commentator, Anthea Butler said she blames God for the outcome of the Zimmerman trial, and adds that God is “a White Racist.”
Known for attacking evangelical leaders, charter schools, and Ayn Rand, Butler has now attacked God in her capacity as a religion teacher.
In Religion and Dispatches, she wrote that “God ain’t good all the time. In fact,” she continued, “sometimes God is not for us. As a black woman in an [sic]nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god ain’t my god. As a matter of fact, I think he’s a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.”
