A lot of people think ANY black church is racist, just by virtue of its addressing a predominantly African American community. I see nothing whatever
wrong with the "black values" espoused by Trinity even though I'm caucasian. They seem to me values that most anyone could accept.
I don't think the black churches are particularly interested in white people at all, they're mostly concerned with uplifting their own community.
It seems we whites can't stand to be left out of anything, so we scream "racist." I have, however, read that Trinity has welcomed whites whenever
they have gone to church there.
It's a comment on our society that, at a time when many other institutions are integrating, our churches still remain mostly segregated. I think
many churches just haven't responded adequately to the needs of people of color.
