Despite the fact that evangelicals’ attention to racial diversity has grown exponentially in recent years, this chapter argues that white evangelicals remain more individualistic in their understanding of racial inequality than any other group of Americans. Drawing on data from national surveys, this chapter employs both qualitative description and quantitative analysis to update and extend Emerson and Smith’s research. Given that hyperindividualism was at the heart of Emerson and Smith’s explanation for the racial divide in the evangelical church, this chapter hints that the road to racial unity remains long indeed for American evangelicals.
