She insists that as a white Christian she can say this


Dear Amy: My brother’s wife posted a lot of racist content and savage conspiracy theories on her social media accounts.

My husband and I asked her to reconsider her positions, but she doubled down (more than once) and asserted her right “as a white Christian” to say these things. My niece (16) said, “Eew. I would never be friends with a black person.

My brother told me that they would never apologize for their beliefs.

My husband and I are starting the journey to become foster parents. In our region, 62 percent of children in foster care are children of color. We told my parents that we had to cut off contact with my brother’s family. My mother urges me to let them “set the record straight”.
