‘Black people in America are the FREEST and MANY FLOURISHING black people in the world’: African Christian University Dean

What's Happening

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University and previous pastor from California, just recently made waves when his sermon titled “Ethnic Gnosticism” resurfaced online. He signed up with Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to share why he believes today’s social justice, anti-racism movements are “toxic” ideology steeped in Marxist crucial theory, which aim to “redistribute” justice to particular societal groups without any factor to consider for the individual.

Dr. Baucham argued that left’s story that black Americans are the most oppressed black individuals on the planet is far from real.

“I’ve been trying to speak about this from the viewpoint of the big image. Regrettably, when you discuss it from the huge image, people tend to believe, you just don’t have empathy, you just don’t have empathy, you simply don’t comprehend how bad it is. Me, who matured in drug-infested, gang-infested, South Central L.A., born in 1969, grew up throughout the crack age … [and] raised by a single, teenage Buddhist mom,” Baucham stated.

“I’m also an American who, as an expat in a foreign country, I have actually been to lots of countries on the planet. And there are 2 things I understand: One, black people in America are the freest and most prosperous black people in the world. Duration. Bar none,” he asserted. “And the second thing is this: individuals beyond America simply believe that we are the most oppressed people in the world. People really think that things like George Floyd are taking place every day. That they’re not an anomaly. But that they’re prevalent … it sickens me. It distresses me … the reputation that black people have, that in some way we are weak and impotent, and that we can’t do or be anything unless white individuals do it for us. Which, by the method, is type of racist.”

Dr. Baucham stressed that black Americans are “some of the strongest people in the history of the world.”

“We overcame slavery, and now we’re bowing and scraping like we require somebody to do something for us,” he added. “Our individuality is at stake. Our self-pride is at stake. And our trust in God as the response and service to our issues is at stake.”
