Can I just say this? I commend anyone with balls enough to say this out loud. My initial reaction was the obvious eye-roll but then I understood how he came to his deduction. I get what he's trying (emphasis on TRYING) to say but the problem is it's in the context of the warped view of how we relate to God.

Time to share a secret, one I don't know if I shared with anyone...I, too, as a Black person, believed slavery was part of God's "purpose." I figured since Africa was full of devil-worshippers, slavery served the dual purpose of dealing Africans the consequence of their sin while introducing the one right religion of Christianity to them.

Prime example of what a warped and toxic view of God can do.
