We are outraged that a public demonstration of white nationalism with its threats to people of color, Muslims, and Jews has been given public space and police protection. This is tantamount to allowing and even perpetrating violence and hatred. Those speaking the truth that Black Lives Matter have been maced, beaten, and threatened with their lives. This is unacceptable. This counters our deepest values as Americans and as people of faith.
While this is an extreme manifestation of explicit white supremacy and white nationalism, we know it represents a deeply rooted and widely nourished lie that still lives in our country and in our institutions. These events are only the most visible tip of the iceberg. White supremacy runs deep in our culture. As white clergy and leaders, we have a particular responsibility to uproot it and destroy it.
We hear the call from our Black sisters and brothers to stand and respond.
“Does it bother you that unmasked members of the Ku Klux Klan will likely be in someone's church singing worship songs, praying, attending a church plant conference, or worse, policing our neighborhoods, teaching our children?” said the Rev. Michael McBride, director of LIVE FREE and Urban Strategies for the PICO National Network. “Is there not an outrage from white-led churches and organizations to identify these people and warn people of color? Does not the Holy Spirit compel you to preach a message this weekend to convict their hearts and transform their minds? Or are you still silent and complicit as the white nationalist power publicly terrorizes the rest of us?”
As white clergy and faith leaders of the PICO National Network, we will not be complicit in terrorism. We call on our colleagues, families, and friends to rise up in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters. Make public in the pulpit, pews, and all media your condemnation of these acts and the need to dismantle white supremacy in all its forms.
We are taking the following actions, and we ask our friends and colleagues to do the same:
1) Contact police departments and call on them to protect Black and Brown people against white home-grown terrorists. We know that white supremacists live in all the places we live, and some are plotting similar rallies as we speak. We must take a proactive stand, not wait for it to happen.
2) Preach a sermon at next day of worship, expressing why anti-Blackness, anti-Semitism, and anti-Brownness are against our spiritual teachings and texts.
3) Attend any rally within 100 miles of your congregation so people of color are not standing alone.
4) Hold press conferences as people of faith denouncing white supremacy and calling these events what they are - terrorism.
5) Do the work to get clear about how white supremacy in all its forms dehumanizes us and share it with our networks.
