Liberal professors emerged from the holly bush right before Christmas to write letters to, in their opinion, the “uneducated” masses in order to guide us into more appeasing actions. Professor Terri Susan Fine wanted to eradicate the phrases, “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Holidays” in favor of “Happy Federal Holiday.” This professor wasn’t the only one with a Christmas wish. George Yancy, professor of philosophy at Emory University in Atlanta, decided he would write his Christmas wish in the form of a letter to the American public asking us to, “listen with love, a sort of love that demands that you look at parts of yourself that might cause pain and terror, as James Baldwin would say,” in order to beat you over the head because “you are a racist just by existing as a white person.”
In his “Dear White America” letter, Professor Yancy wants white America “to listen with love” since this letter is truly a gift for us. He, first, writes about love not being talked about especially in “the public sphere.” Yancy claims the conversation centers more around “revenge, name calling, hate and divisiveness.”
We don’t talk much about the urgency of love these days, especially within the public sphere. Much of our discourse these days is about revenge, name calling, hate, and divisiveness. I have yet to hear it from our presidential hopefuls, or our political pundits. I don’t mean the Hollywood type of love, but the scary kind, the kind that risks not being reciprocated, the kind that refuses to flee in the face of danger. To make it a bit easier for you, I’ve decided to model, as best as I can, what I’m asking of you. Let me demonstrate the vulnerability that I wish you to show. As a child of Socrates, James Baldwin and Audre Lorde, let me speak the truth, refuse to err on the side of caution.
This letter is a gift for you. Bear in mind, though, that some gifts can be heavy to bear. You don’t have to accept it; there is no obligation. I give it freely, believing that many of you will throw the gift back in my face, saying that I wrongly accuse you, that I am too sensitive, that I’m a race hustler, and that I blame white people (you) for everything.
Basically, this sounds more like incoherent thought begging for someone to listen. Well, Mr. Yancy, let’s talk about that love, shall we? Love is out of the public sphere these days because atheists, their supporters and politicians with an agenda decided it would be best if Jesus Christ and God were removed out of sight. It became no longer fashionable to believe in Our Lord and Christ, Our Savior, and project it in the public sphere. These people against Christianity decided God, Jesus, and the Bible, with its message, needed to be moth-balled in a closet. In place of Christianity, the agenda laden Supreme Court, unconstitutionally, placed the idolatry known as “secular humanism” in the forefront of society. If love is missing, this is why. For if everyone were together in Christ, kept God’s laws, and were reading the Bible daily, America would be a much different place. So, my gift to you, Mr. Yancy, is to tell you that God, Christ and the Bible need to return to the public sphere so the love you miss returns.
Professor Yancy then takes up six paragraphs explaining that he is sexist, recognizes he is sexist, describes how he might be sexist, and tells of his struggles with it daily. However, the good professor does not explain how he will rid himself of his sexist attitude. He admits he continually falters and continually oppresses woman, unintentionally of course; but, he states it does not relieve him of the responsibility.
Again, Professor Yancy, Jesus Christ and God are the answers for your problems with sexism. For through the love of Christ, God’s mercy and His Word, you will find what you seek for the Bible explains to you how to treat women, how to live, how to be a good man, etc. Ask for forgiveness, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and pray. We Christians will pray for you, pray with you and ask God to provide you strength to keep you from temptation. The answer to your problem is Christ. It is truly with love that this is conveyed to you. You cannot conquer your Devil alone. With Christ, you can slay your demons.
