Anti White Supremacy Statement

by latefall, (http://latefall.shoe.org/)

This is an excerpt from several pages of an anti White Supremacy statement issued by MCC-Mennonite Central Committee-issued August 17, 2017, in response to the violence at Charlottesville.
I'm so happy that they have publicly taken a solid stance on the issue.

While we Anabaptist Christians have been willing to join other movements for justice, we have too often been slow or unwilling to join the struggle for racial justice, failing to see white supremacy as the violence that it is. As MCC, we confess and repent such hesitancy and even blindness, which exacts an ongoing physical and spiritual toll on our sisters and brothers of color and leads to spiritual and moral decay for white people.
MCC rejects white supremacy and its violence in all forms—including white racism, white silence, white fragility and white privilege—as a scourge that continues the legacy of trauma inflicted on people of color. White supremacy and racism deny the dignity of each person.
As Anabaptist Christians we are called to follow the example of Jesus in community. To this end:
MCC rejects all white supremacy movements as contradictory to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, including the so-called “alt-right” movement, white nationalism and neo-Nazism; and anti-Black, anti-Indigenous, anti-immigrant, anti-Semite and anti-Muslim rhetoric.
