Race, Darwin, and Us

A racist isn’t someone who hates another person based on the color of their skin. That is too simplistic and unknowable (no one can truly know the heart of another).
Rather, a racist is someone who sees all things in terms of race. All problems are race-based problems and all solutions are race-based solutions.History is a history of “favored” race development, fighting, competition, struggling to survive, etc. Current events are caused by race. Different views are because of race. Justice is racial. Holidays are racially oppressive. Shopping sales exploit certain races. This is the racist mentality.
With all the issues being interpreted in light of races struggling with each other for survival, I can’t help but see this as the exact playbook of Darwin’s evolutionary premise: “The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.” The premise is Evolution. Have you bought into it? Are you a racist? As a nation, we are playing out Darwinian evolution perfectly. Races struggling.

This is also why no one cares about the greater threat to black people: abortion. Abortion kills some 1000 times more black people than any other problem they have. But no one cares about this. Why? Because getting rid of babies helps the would-be parents to survive – and Survival is the point. We are evolutionists at heart and in practice. In the struggle to survive, the weaker get pummeled.

A final thought from John Piper:

“The bloodline of Jesus Christ is deeper than the bloodlines of race. The death and resurrection of the Son of God for sinners is the only sufficient power to bring the bloodlines of race into the single bloodline of the cross.”
