Gentle Angry People – Race & Class

Rev. William Sinkford has just released a Pastoral Letter on the Hurricane Katrina.  He emphasized his anger at the crisis response and the underlying root causes, highlighting the race and class divide in our country.  He also called upon our gentle and generous nature as Unitarian Universalists, but urged us never to forget our anger.  An excerpt:

Racism and classism mean that the concerns, even the very lives of people of color and poor people, remain invisible.  As a member of the Congressional Black Caucus said: "God would not be pleased with our response."

I just heard it at a special UUA Chapel Service.
