Ep. 84: Drs. Glenn Bracey & Michael Emerson on the Religion of Whiteness

Noah interviews Drs. Glenn Bracey and Michael Emerson on their national research project where they interviewed practicing white Christians on matters of race. What they found was that practicing white Christians hold some unique views on race that are not shared by any other demographic in the United States. Their views differ from practicing black or Latino Christians, as well as from white non-Christians. 
This research is being compiled into Bracey and Emerson's upcoming book from Oxford University Press titled The Religion of Whiteness: How Racism Distorts American Christianity (February 2024). 
You can also listen to Dr. Emerson's talk from the Evangelical Covenant Church's national Midwinter 2022 conference, which breaks down this research:

Noah highly recommends Dr. Emerson's previous book Divided by Faith: Evangelical Religion and the Problem of Race in America.
