HOW COME JESUS THEOLOGY DIDN'T LIBERATE BLACK AMERICANS OR AFRICANS BUT IT EMPOWER WHITES
How do Black preachers incorporate Jesus into Black liberation theology when Jesus has never contributed anything to the Black race philosophically or theologically. And if you say he did to what cost was the information that didn't prevail against injustices committed against African Americans and black South Africans during American segregation and apartheid, respectively. Why did Blacks need the gospel of Jesus when whites didn't need it.
Black theology, or Black liberation theology, refers to a theological perspective which originated among African American seminarians and scholars, and in some black churches in the United States and later in other parts of the world.
Blacks were taught to view Christian theology as a theology of liberation—an irrational move only to be accepted by God in the world of existential oppressed Black people. Modern Black Americans contemporary Black theology can be traced to July 31, 1966, when an ad hoc group of 51 concerned clergy, calling themselves the National Committee of Negro Churchmen (NCNC), bought a full page ad in The New York Times to publish their "Black Power Statement," which proposed a more aggressive approach to combating racism using the Bible for inspiration as we indured beatings, and lynchings in the south.
What served the purpose of being inspired when there should have been a divine solution for removing pain rather than receiving a quote or a song for a better life. The gospel was not an aggressive message but just the opposite, stating to wait on the lord. Jesus never declared that racism, in all its forms, as deplorable but motivated it with the laws of the Old Testament. The same Jesus who promoted slavery was not the same source to liberate Black people.
