"… my struggle to affirm my faith in light of my Blackness continues for me today, though perhaps in a more focused and intense way, for while I had initially wondered about he propriety of faith in what I originally believed to be a 'white Jesus,' I now found my self struggling with the efficacy of faith itself. James Baldwin once said that there comes a time in the life of every Black person in America when they must face the 'shock' of discovering 'that the flag to which you have pledged allegiance. . . had not pledged allegiance to you.' And now, as the mother of a six-foot-tall, loc-wearing, twenty-seven-year-old Black man, fearing for his life in this nation as much as I did when he was born, and realizing the gravity of this country's 'sin' that is a mortal threat to all Black life, I find myself facing the shock that perhaps the 'God of Jesus Christ; in whom Black people have pledged our faith has not really 'pledged allegiance to us." 201 pages.
