Color-Free Language

From Letters to Sojourners Magazine/April 2009:

(Free registration required) "To speak of “Christians of color” is to buy into that discourse, because it assumes that we will know that this is a reference to people who are not white. But white is a color, it is not the measure of normalcy, and others are not to be judged in relation to that “whiteness.”

So well said!
