Thinking in Black and White (June 24, 2015)
When Rachel Dolezal, a woman with white ancestry, wanted to “identify” as black, many wondered, “What will people think of next?” And that’s a great question.
We need to realize that our culture no longer thinks the way people have thought forever—that if a certain thing is true, like begin white, then it’s opposite, like being black, is not true.
But as Francis Schaeffer pointed out, with the death of absolutes and the embrace of relativism, reality is no longer understood as something real that is either this way or that way, but is what we perceive it to be. After all, a culture that can disconnect one’s gender from biology to embrace transgenderism can also think about race like Ms. Dolezal.
You might say things aren’t as black and white as they used to be.
