Rev. Jim Wallis to White Christians: ‘You Can’t Say You’re Not a Racist if You Accept and Support Systems That Clearly Are’

The Rev. Jim Wallis (pictured) is sending a powerful “wake-up call” to white Christians who are refusing to fight back against a “racialized police system.”

Wallis and other faith leaders and social activists were recently arrested during another slew of peaceful protests in Ferguson, Missouri.
