Ummmm, isn’t this actual racism?
Chanequa Walker-Barnes a theology professor at Mercer University wrote a prayer that read “Dear God, Please help me to hate white people”.
She then continued her prayer to God by asking Him to make her hate specifically saying “the Fox News-loving, Trump-supporting voters”.
Her prayer has since been published in “A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal” which has become a New York Times Bestseller and is now sold in Target.
Imagine if the races were switched in that prayer, she would be fired from her teaching position immediately.

Breitbart News covered the racist prayer:
Mercer University theology professor Chanequa Walker-Barnes wrote a prayer in which she asks God to help her “hate white people,” specifically, “the nice ones,” such as “the Fox News-loving, Trump-supporting voters” who “don’t see color.” She published the “Prayer of a Weary Black Woman” in the book A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal.
“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people,” the professor began in her prayer, titled, “Prayer of a Weary Black Woman,” which was published in A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal edited by Sarah Bessey.
“I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively,” Walker-Barnes continued. “I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist.”
This is literally a “prayer book” I found in TARGET.

Campus Reform didn’t hold back and had this to say:
A seminary professor wrote a prayer in which she asks God to help her “hate White people.”
Chanequa Walker-Barnes is an associate professor of practical theology at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, which claims a Baptist identity. Her oration was published in A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal.
“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people,” opens the prayer. “Or at least to want to hate them. At least, I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively.”
“I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist,” she continues.
“I am not talking about the White antiracist allies who have taken up this struggle against racism with their whole lives,” Walker-Barnes clarifies for the Creator of the universe. “No, those aren’t the people I want to hate.”
Walker-Barnes says that she has no interest in hating “strident segregationists who mow down nonviolent antiracist protesters, who open fire on Black churchgoers, or who plot acts of racism terrorism hoping to start a race war,” as such people are “already in hell.” Instead, she desires the strength of God to hate “the nice ones” — specifically, the “Fox News-loving, Trump-supporting voters who ‘don’t see color’ but who make thinly veiled racist comments about ‘those people.’”
This theology teacher needs to study more of her Bible.
