Is it ethical for people of color within the U.S. who claim to be disciples of Christ to engage in violence against oppressors?
The reality is that people of color are already living within a violent situation. According to a five-year study, unarmed people of color face significantly higher death rates when stopped by law enforcement than Euroamericans (Native Americans at a rate ratio of 3.95, Blacks at 3.49 and Latinx at 1.55, compared to 1.00 for whites).
I wonder what would happen if unarmed white people were being killed by the police at a rate of 1.5 to almost four times greater than people of color. Forget defunding, I believe they would burn down the police precinct!
How do I know this? If they stormed the U.S. Capitol based on a lie, what would they do if they were being systematically and institutionally decimated?
