When you see a black man today, year 2015, you don’t gasp at the fact that they can probably afford better clothes than you can. You don’t get upset at the fact that they might even be a better dancer than you. Today it is expected that an African American should be our president or that an African American could be with the white women by the end of the movie because it is true love!
Now imagine it is the 1930’s, and you are walking down a street looking at the African wearing better clothes than you are! You might be asking yourself if you should be mad or not, well why not? Everyone else is! “How is this possible that he has more money in his wallet than I do? Should I accuse him of stealing?

The overall and surely “indisputable message is that God has created us all in his image and has included all members of the human race in the saving work of his Son”. Nowhere does the Bible give any “indications that black people, or any people, whether "of color" or not, are outside the embrace of his love”. But the fact remains that people have believed and taught this error, and sadly, it has been a teaching that still affects the way many of us think about each other, and perhaps even ourselves. The Bible does not “focus on skin color as any form of criterion”. All have sinned, all have fallen short of the glory of God, “and all are recipients of his grace through Jesus Christ”.
