EP 13 | Take the Red Pill

Skot Welch and Eric Johnson continue their conversation around the third chapter in Skot’s book Unfractured, which addresses the harmful myth of inferiority in and around black culture. They discuss the importance of acknowledging issues of race and injustice in America, drawing parallels to the concept of taking the red pill in the movie "The Matrix.” Once you see the truth, you cannot unsee it. Skot urges us to be bold in addressing injustice and highlights the need for these conversations to occur within faith communities and churches. He notes that for Christians, it's not optional. It’s our responsibility to confront and combat injustice based on biblical commandments. They discuss personal experiences, including Eric's journey as the adoptive father of three black boys.

The conversation touches on the idea of privilege, with Skot challenging the concept of white privilege. He argues that viewing it as a privilege can be debilitating and suggests that - through a Christocentric lens - it’s a detrimental development of both white and black culture.

Throughout the conversation, Skot parallels taking the red pill in "The Matrix" and awakening to the reality of racial injustice. Just as one cannot "unsee" the truth once they've taken the red pill, individuals cannot ignore the responsibility to fight injustice once they've become aware of it. He encourages us to look to scripture and align our beliefs with our actions.

This episode delves into the importance of confronting racial injustice from a Christian perspective. It questions the perception of white privilege and emphasizes Christians' moral obligation to combat injustice. Calling us to live out the teachings of Christ by pursuing a more just society.
