Anthea Butler is the author of the new book White Evangelical Racism. She is also Chair of Religious Studies and Associate Professor of Religious Studies and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Her essays and other writing have also appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, NBC, and The Guardian.
Professor Butler explains why it is impossible to properly understand White (American) Christianity as something separate and apart from White supremacy. She also details the role of White Christianity (specifically White Evangelicalism) in the horrible events of Jan. 6 and Trumpism more generally.
And Professor Butler warns that when White Christians and other elements of the White Right threaten to engage in terrorism and other forms of political violence they should be taken very seriously. Such violence in not “metaphorical”, it is very real.
Chauncey DeVega reflects on the new “revelations” from the book “I Alone Can Fix It” about the Trump regime’s evil deeds and then offers some advice – one simple and basic truth -- that will help the American people and others who are combating fascism and its associated malignant reality and sadopolitics.
