I love all human beings. We're all the same.

BUT I GOTTA SAY AS A WHITE PERSON....

I was recently reading a book about near death experiences called "African-American Near Death Experiences" by Dr. Lloyd Rudy and it bothered me when several of the Black people who claim they
died and went to hell came back and said that nearly everyone in hell is White.

Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed reading the near death experiences of Black people. But it seemed
racist to me that Dr. Lloyd Rudy (who is White) allowed so much finger pointing at Whites being
an evil race who is going to brimstone.

AM I WRONG TO FEEL OFFENDED?

As they (should) say, nothing good happens after "BUT I GOTTA SAY AS A WHITE PERSON...." ...

I see you're a new poster with a mere six posts, and fully half of those posts - three of them - are nearly-identical obsessions with this book, spread out over three different threads (in three different forums (BOOKS, POLITICS, RELIGION).

Other than that observation, I'll decline to take the bait.

And, is there any reason to believe that statement is any less valid if WHITE is replaced by BLACK?
