The Most Refreshing Conversation on Race You’ll Hear All Day

Brant and Sherri have worked together for years now. In their recent podcast, they had an honest and truly helpful conversation about race, Charlottesville, and striving for unity and relationship.

Sherri shares personal stories that shape her struggles, Brant shares what he wishes the church would do in light of racism in the news and in our country, and they offer some really helpful answers from two unique perspectives.

Here is just a small excerpt:

Brant: Sometimes things that happen to a person come back in my face and I didn’t do it. But it doesn’t matter. And I need to forgive. Which is what a lot of white people ask black people to do… “You guys need to forgive and move on…” Well, I need to do that. It’s part of living with other humans…

Sherri: It’s very refreshing to hear someone say that because, as an African American person, it is difficult when things like this happen, not to put it in the space of your other experiences… When something like this weekend happens, I have to fight. And I will fight! To not put it into that narrative. To know that it is evil, but not to allow the people who love me, who are loyal, who are my friends, who are white, and are like family to me – it is so wrong for me to go on social media or anywhere else and be like, “See, this is what’s wrong with them.” It’s not fair and it’s not right, but it is a fight…

All I know is that Sherri’s laugh is contagious. You can’t be in a bad mood after hearing her belt one out there. My opinion is this: There is only one heaven and one hell and i don’t believe God Is going to put up with any of this nonsense at his house!

EXTREMELY WELL DONE! I just wish all the people that need to hear this (besides me, I needed it badly!) would take the time to listen. My prayer is that this will inspire folks to THINK about this issue, not just react, and take God’s Word and Love to Heart! THANK YOU!!

PRAISE GOD for your show and for the two of you honestly talking about such a difficult topic for some. I work as a secretary in a primarily African-American church. I love the brothers and sisters here and I’ll be honest, most of us have a great relationship. There are some who would like to have an African American secretary and I understand that. God is going to work all of this out in His time. Meantime we need to love each other and spread the news of His Kingdom which will include all of us! God bless you both!

Beautiful. Honest. I know satan wants to tear the body of Christ His bride apart using racism and disagreements. We need to overcome that. Thank you so much Sherri for your open and honest telling of your experiences as an African American dealing with prejudice in America. Thank you Brant for your loving response and fearless love of Sherri in a climate that tries to discourage whites from accepting other races. Brant and Sherri you obey our Lord by loving each other and you lead by example. So happy to call you my siblings.

Thank you all for having that discussion. It was the most helpful one I heard and I forwarded it to friends. I appreciate your honesty. Sherry, I want to say how sorry I am that you were treated with such disdain and disrespect in the ninth grade. I pray God confronts and convicts that teacher and that he finds you and apologizes for your sake and for his. We need to hear more of these conversations without the hyped up emotion that so easily sets us off (maybe I’m just speaking for myself here). I love your show and your… Read more »

I love the statement that Brant gave about the Las Vegas shooting. Yes people have always been crazy and cruel. It was nice that he talked about looking past that, and think about the heroes of that tragic event.
