Salvation Army Wants People To ‘Lament, Repent And Apologize’ For Racism

The Salvation Army, known for its presence outside stores with bell-ringers and a red kettle for donations, asked white people to “lament, repent and apologize for biases or racist ideologies held and actions committed” in addition to donating their spare change, according to a report from the Daily Wire.

The Protestant Christian church, which started the kettle-ringing tradition in 1891, made the request in a 67-page online guide titled, “Let’s Talk About Racism.”

“We recognize that it is a profound challenge to sit on the hot seat and listen with an open heart to the hurt and anger of the wounded,” the guide told readers. “Yet, we are all hardwired to desire justice and fairness, so the need to receive a sincere apology is necessary,” it said.

In a section titled “What Is Whiteness?” the guide discouraged “colorblindness” and suggested a number of books, including “White Fragility,” by Robin DeAngelo, and “How to Be an Anti-Racist,” by Ibram X. Kendi, prominent advocates of Critical Race Theory (CRT). CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies.

The guide also explained the prevalence of racism in America, saying that readers should “stop denying the existence of individual and systemic/institutional racism” and should also  “stop denying that White privilege exists.”

  1. More and more organizations are
    Missing what’s actually happening.
    Apologizing for whiteness? I have no idea what that means, but I know someone who is a experienced American….that happens to be African American.
    Her name is well known, and she tells it like it is. Her name is Candace Owens.
    She represents the black community, and she also knows that the issues facing black Americans has nothing to do with race.
    They are racist within our society, and don’t get me wrong, but to say it exist to the extent of being everywhere is not true.
    She explains that it’s only during the elections that race is brought up and used
    as a political weapon by the democrats.
    Do your research if you dare, it’s out there in the open. We need to see the actual things going on in our country without bias.
    Unfortunately the real issues facing the black communities nation wide is being overlooked, and not being met head on.
