Introduction: Divided or United by Faith?
The racial landscape in the United States is rapidly changing as, according to the 2000 Census, the percentage of people of color in the country—African American, Hispanic, and the like—has more than doubled, and their growth is expected to increase at an accelerating rate. Race has always played no small part to those who live in the United States as it, in most common cases, dictates who these people are to live and interact with, how they perceive themselves, and their cultural tastes. More importantly, race provides a basis for how they would value other people, how much trust they would give other people, and provide stereotypes to classify people and categorize degrees of crime. As it also becomes evident that race even segregates certain religious congregations, the book points out how Christian congregations should be multiracial.
