Trending: Judge Kavanaugh’s Wife Dragged into Fray By Despicable Democrats

A speaker at a Christian college’s chapel told students that Jesus “benefited from inequality” because of his sex and nationality before saying white students “inherited a fault.”

“In some ways Jesus was very oppressed…but in a lot of ways, Jesus had a lot of power in his society,” said Dr. Christena Cleveland of the Duke Divinity School, while speaking at the Indiana Wesleyan University Chapel.

“Jesus was a man in his society and women didn’t have a lot of power,” the doctor said, before also suggesting Jesus gained power by being free and “not Roman but not Samaritan.”

“We talk about love … about how Jesus loved, but love cannot exist in the midst of inequality,” Cleveland stated.

“If you’re in this room and you identify as white, then you do benefit from that,” Cleveland said. “We live in a society where white people are accommodated while non-white people are alienated.”

The doctor cited a study in which two researchers sent resumes with different names to Boston and Chicago companies seeking employees and discovered that, all else equal, employers chose candidates with “White sounding” names (Emily and Greg) over those with “African-American names” (Jamal and Lakisha).

“You’re not inherently at fault but what you have done is inherited a fault,” Cleveland told the white students in the room. 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
