This is an excerpt from the Preface
...racism is a spiritual matter. Because a spirit is driving the racism in America, it's not just going to go away. The spirit of racism, even the devil himself, is never going to just go away. So, if we think that politicians, police officers, protests, etc., are going to get rid of the spirit of racism, that’s very naïve. It’s worse than naïve; it's spiritually ignorant.
In this book, I will show what 2 Cor 4:4 (NIV) says is true. It says that “the god of this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers…” The spirit of racism is a blinding spirit that blinds the people that are under its influence to its existence and its very operation. The spirit of racism thrives in an environment where its very existence is denied. The denial of the existence of the spirit of racism, hatred based on race, is in some way acceptable when you think about “the world.” But it's totally unacceptable when it comes to the Church. *Throughout this book, I will use Church with a capital “C” to refer to the body of Christ in America versus an individual church.
For Christians to believe that the devil has stopped operating in some significant area is untenable. We, members of the body of Christ, should not be subject to the same blindness as the world in the area of racism. The only way racism can be uprooted is that it first must be acknowledged/identified, prayed against, and by faith acted against...
Make no mistake, the first step to uprooting the spirit of racism is acknowledging its existence and its continued operation as part of Satan’s campaign in the earth “to steal, kill, and to destroy.” The spirit of racism can no longer be denied or “winked at” in ignorance by the body of Christ. I believe acquiescence to the spirit of racism is America’s defining sin from the time of the Founding Fathers to the present day.
I have dedicated this book to exposing the manifestation, the operation of the spirit of racism in America with the aim of uprooting it. I pray this book will open the eyes of Christians in America who have been blinded to its operation. Further, I pray that as Christians are armed with the revelation of the stronghold of the spirit of racism in America that they will stand against it in unity, prayer, word, and action.
