Covid-19, BAME Deaths and the White Church’s Response

We need to listen to the voices of BAME Christians and to allow them to speak for themselves and not explain away their experiences.

Today’s video is a long one, but it is time well spent. In the current environment where BAME (black and minority ethnic) people are being hit far harder by Covid-19 than the white population and the response to George Floyd’s death and the Black Lives Matter campaign is dividing opinion, it is important that white Christians listen to the voices of their brothers and sisters from other groups. This conversation, convened by Ben Lindsay, author of the excellent We Need To Talk About Race, is far from comfortable but these are voices we need to listen to.
