Ground-breaking, thought-provoking and heartfelt! As race relations in America continue to hang in the balance, author Dr. Christopher Cunningham produces an extraordinarily powerful book, outlining his observations and personal experiences of racial issues in his voyage of self-discovery, with noteworthy and insightful conclusions. Cunningham takes us through his personal journey as the black pastor of a predominantly white church.
In a self-deprecating and relatable manner, he highlights his mistakes, faux pas, and growth, as he traversed uncharted territory with his congregants and friends. He discusses his heartaches as well as insults received, congregants lost and opportunities missed. Along the way he introduces us to some of the people who God placed in his path to rub off some of the rough racial edges and facilitate the process of transformation beyond walking on eggshells around each other.
You May Be White, But You’re Alright takes the very unusual step of a black pastor writing specifically to a white audience, but Cunningham does it in a manner that is sensitive, gracious and sincere, making the book relevant to blacks and other races as well. The book highlights the role that people groups can play to realize God’s redemptive purposes in the world, and reminds us that at the root of it, we are all God’s creations, made in His very image, exactly how He intended.
Cunningham points out the necessity of acknowledging both the great heritage of the white race as well as its littered past as a precursor to ultimate racial healing and the path to reconciliation. With its many challenges, vital lessons learned and significant alliances formed, this book offers great hope and optimism that both whites and blacks can work together to eradicate racism, form significant bonds and build a world where the beauty of God is displayed through the diversity of His people.
