Item description for Beyond Racial Gridlock: Embracing Mutual Responsibility by George Yancey...

Sociologist George Yancey surveys a range of approaches to racial healing that Christians have used and offers a new model for moving forward.

Publishers Description
Christians have struggled with racial issues for centuries, and often inadvertently contribute to the problem. Many proposed solutions have been helpful, but these only take us so far. Adding to this complex situation is the reality that Christians of different races see the issues differently. Sociologist George Yancey surveys a range of approaches to racial healing that Christians have used and offers a new model for moving forward. The first part of the book analyzes four secular models regarding race used by Christians (colorblindness, Anglo-conformity, multiculturalism and white responsibility) and shows how each has its own advantages and limitations. Part two offers a new "mutual responsibility" model, which acknowledges that both majority and minority cultures have their own challenges, tendencies, and sins to repent of, and that people of different races approach racial reconciliation and justice in differing but complementary ways. Yancey's vision offers hope that people of all races can walk together on a shared path--not as adversaries, but as partners.

Reviews - What do customers think about Beyond Racial Gridlock: Embracing Mutual Responsibility?

A great model for dealing with racism from the historic Christian perspective  Jan 22, 2009
Any book on racism faces a difficult challenge. A book on racism that integrates a Christian perspective faces an even greater challenge. For to properly address racism from a Christian perspective requires the author to talk about what is often overlooked in pulpits all across America: the effects on sin and human depravity and their direct correlation to racism. Laid out in 150 down to earth and well-structured pages Yancy briefly outlines the common models of colorblindness, Anglo-conformity, Multiculturalism and White responsibility before offering up his unique mutual responsibility model and an integrated Christian response and implementation.
Yancy bases his model of mutual responsibility on the framework of sin and human depravity and their subsequent effects on racism. "The problem of racism is the problem of sin" (9). "Our sin nature seeks to be released from all measures of accountability" (24). Sin as effected the hearts of all men, both white and colored...but so has the cross. In the cross Christians can both embrace their responsibility and contribution to racism while also finding a lasting solution: reconciliation. Only when the cross is properly understood does Yancy contend Christians will embrace mutual responsibility.
