NYT Best-Seller: “God, Help Me Hate White People”

The author

At some point, all white people are going to have to deal with the fact that this movement of blacks that has emerged over the past decade is being managed by people who want to kill all of us.

The average black person probably doesn’t want to kill all of us, and probably isn’t generally thinking about us very much at all, as they are wrapped up in their own lives, which tend to be extremely turbulent by white people standards.

However, the vanguard political movement of the blacks has become openly genocidal. We cannot wish this away.


In a shockingly bigoted spiritual plea, Chanequa Walker-Barnes, an associate theology professor at Mercer University, has urged “Dear God” to help her find the “hate” she thinks “nice White people” who aren’t her “allies” deserve.

The academic, who teaches pastoral care and counseling, spiritual formation, and reconciliation studies at the Baptist college in Macon, Georgia, laid out her grievances in a poem called ‘Prayer of a Weary Black Woman’ that surfaced in the media earlier this week. Readers were either astonished at or titillated by its open discussion of – and seeming support of – racial hatred.

Walker-Barnes implores her God to “help [her] to hate White people,” to at least “want to hate them,” or at the very least “stop caring about them, individually and collectively” in her poem, recently published in an anthology called ‘A Rhythm of Prayer’. Despite what might seem confusing and disturbing doctrine for many Christian denominations, the book was found to be stocked in the Christian Life and Religion & Beliefs sections of department store Target’s online inventory. The book also made it to the New York Times bestseller list.

Fellow seminarians raised an eyebrow at the use of such intolerant language in the context of religion. Pastor Ryan McAllister, of Life Community Church in Alexandria, Virginia, who first shared one of the inflammatory pages on Saturday and has recently added more, deemed the passage “completely anti-biblical” in a post on Twitter, and blamed the rise of Critical Race Theory for what he described as the rapid spread of such xenophobic viewpoints.

Worse, in a manner similar to that of fellow “anti-racist” crusader Robin DiAngelo’s Calvinistic theology, in which one is born with the original and inescapable sin of whiteness, the theology professor insists that all non-white humanity should “stop caring about [white people’s] misguided, racist soul, to stop believing that [white people] can be better, and they can stop being racist.”

“Let me stop seeing them as members of the same body,” she continues, echoing the sort of thoughts generally espoused by the dreaded white supremacists.

It’s not clear that any of those “white supremacists” actually exist outside of Hollywood movies.

Even if you look at “bad optics” white activists like George Lincoln Rockwell of the American Nazi Party*, he would say something like “I don’t think the majority of black people are bad, we just can’t live together.”

It’s clear now with these blacks, and this crazy level of vitriol we are seeing, that we’ve now reached “irreconcilable differences.”

What we’re seeing is an ideology emerging that justifies mass murder. They are increasingly using language that goes beyond dehumanizing us, and is reaching towards claiming we deserve to be murdered.

*GLR’s optics were arguably ironic, and intended to be silly for the purpose of grabbing attention. That was how he himself framed the optics. It seems his goal was accomplished, and he was planning on changing these optics before he was assassinated in 1968.
