James Baldwin speaks about Racism and the church

I don’t know if white Christians hate Negroes or not; I know that we have a Christian church which is white and a Christian church which is black.  I know as Malcolm X once put it: “the most segregated hour in American life is high noon on Sunday.  That says a great deal to me about a Christian nation.”  It means that I can’t afford to trust most white Christians, and certainly cannot trust the Christian church.
