Prayer To Hate White People From Professor

After I read an article about Chanequa Walker Barnes, Ph.D. and her prayer, Please God, Help me to hate white people, and then watched her TheoEd talk on Pathological Whiteness, I was ready to give up on all of the human race. What’s the point of dealing with humans when this whole thing is a shite show of hatred. I calmed down when I walked MacDuff through my multi-culti neighborhood and waved and smiled at all the neighbors who had come out after the rain. Now, I am capable of telling you about this heinous woman without throwing my device across the room.

Chanequa Walker Barnes, Ph.D. was educated at Emory University, Miami University and Duke University. She is currently a professor of practical theology at Mercer University. Her “hate white people” prayer was included in a book titled “A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal”. The description of the book says: “For the weary, the angry, the anxious, and the hopeful, this collection of moving, tender prayers offers rest, joyful resistance, and a call to act, written by Barbara Brown Taylor, Amena Brown, Nadia Bolz-Weber, and other artists and thinkers, curated by the author Glennon Doyle calls “my favorite faith writer.” “Moving, tender prayers” is not what I got when I read Walker Barnes’ prayer which is titled “Prayer of a Weary Black Woman”.

From the Daily Hellas, here are portions of her “prayer”:

“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people,” opens the prayer. “Or at least to want to hate them. At least, I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively.”

“I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist,” she continues.

“I am not talking about the White antiracist allies who have taken up this struggle against racism with their whole lives,” Walker-Barnes clarifies for the Creator of the universe. “No, those aren’t the people I want to hate.”

Walker Barnes is very clear about whom she doesn’t want to waste her hate and who she REALLY wants to hate:

Walker-Barnes says that she has no interest in hating “strident segregationists who mow down nonviolent antiracist protesters, who open fire on Black churchgoers, or who plot acts of racism terrorism hoping to start a race war,” as such people are “already in hell.” Instead, she desires the strength of God to hate “the nice ones” — specifically, the “Fox News-loving, Trump-supporting voters who ‘don’t see color’ but who make thinly veiled racist comments about ‘those people.’”

That’s generally not how I pray. You can’t criticize Dr. Chanequa (her Twitter handle) because she is a Theologian:

I have read Psalms. There are many Psalms Dr. Chanequa may have had in mind when she wrote her “weary, black woman” prayer. Psalm 9 has some pretty righteous phrases:

15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden. 16 The LORD is known by his acts of justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands. 17 The wicked go down to the realm of the dead, all the nations that forget God. 18 But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish. 19 Arise, LORD, do not let mortals triumph; let the nations be judged in your presence. 20 Strike them with terror, LORD; let the nations know they are only mortal.

For the most part the Psalms look out, Dr. Chanequa’s prayer looks inward in the key of “me”. I am going to post this video of her TheoEd talk, but I don’t recommend you watch it, unless you live in a multi-culti neighborhood and have an awesome terrier in your life. It’s your only hope.

I am going to assume that you didn’t watch the video. Dr. Chanequa is probably the most racist person I have ever heard of outside of David Duke and Louis Farrakhan. Per Walker Barnes, America has a problem and it’s name is “whiteness”. And, she praises Robin DiAngelo, the author of White Fragility. If you don’t know about the book White Fragility, our Darleen took one for the team and read and reviewed the book for Victory Girls. There are not enough terriers in the world to get me through that piece of trash. Robin DiAngelo is what Chanequa Walker Barnes would call a “white, anti-racist ally”. I might call her a plagiarist and fraud, but your mileage may very.

You cannot criticize Dr. Chanequa:

Oh, my sister in Christ, we are all going to be dust one day very soon. That’s a fact. In the meantime, I’ma pray for you.

    Bless her heart… If we were all as racist as she claims, she wouldn’t have the advanced degree that she does (though I seriously doubt she earned it, based in the idiocy she spews..)

  • Lloyd says:

    My guess is her degrees were awarded based on her skin color. True, or not….she is a definite racist pig! Anyone who would listen to a word that she says is a FOOL!

  • Anna A says:

    She must not realize that many monastics recite all of the Psalms in about 4 weeks.

  • Gary Henderson says:

    Interesting but I think that she is entitled to her opinions and her beliefs. I don’t have any problem with her saying these things. I believe in freedom of speech and freedom of expression as long as it doesn’t physically hurt someone. I doubt that God likes her opinions and beliefs but that is between her and Him and that is all that matters to me.

    Who is her God? Hair covering?

  • William Wetzel says:

    You are a racist negro evil P.O.S and i hope you crawl in a hole and die !!

  • Allen A Bethea says:

    You white Christians had no problem with the hateful disgusting imprecatory prayers against Obama and his family. Why the outrage now?

  • Allen A Bethea says:

    Your reply proves Dr Walker-Barnes point that many whites do not even care to examine issues stemming from white supremacy. Many white christians did not care to see the unchristlike nature of imprecatory prayers made against Obama but justified them as biblical. Similar prayers against white supremacy, however, must be condemned. If you just cared a tiny bit, you would have take 15 seconds for a google search.

  • Allen A Bethea says:

    Would you at least condemn the person who said, “ You are a racist negro evil P.O.S and i hope you crawl in a hole and die !!”

    No you saw nothing wrong with that post. No visceral reaction because it was addressed to a nonwhite.

    • SFC D says:

      I was more interested in your point. And for the record, I do not care for the post you referenced. It’s as despicable as yours.

      • Allen A Bethea says:

        Again, point proved. Bringing attention to an area where healing can begin among white Christians is called despicable. Let me prove you are even more correct: I may error in assuming we worship the same God and have the same Spirit and that Spirit would prompt some self reflect among white Christians. I am becoming more and more convinced that this is not true.

        • SFC D says:

          If you pray for hate you are a despicable person, your color, gender, sex, your whatever is irrelevant. What religion, what God believes praying for hate is a good thing?

  • Allen A Bethea says:

    Would you at least condemn the person who said, “ You are a racist negro evil P.O.S and i hope you crawl in a hole and die !!”

    Allen, I was in Atlanta a decade ago ( and who was “president” then ?) My family went out to eat at a place recommended. We arrived and were the only people in that place with lighter skin pigmentation. Everyone kept engaging but watched us. After a few min a hostess came by and showed us a room ( downstairs ) and no one else was there. After drinking alot of water. The hostess showed up again and took out order and after a fair amount of time we were served. We had time to eat then were told that they were getting ready to close and had to leave. As we went upstairs didnt look like they were getting ready to close but no one else in the place looked like they were in a hurry. Now if I had not told you my pigmentation at the start you probably were decry “racism”
    Just remember before OB and the DNC ( which is the party of the Jim Crow and KKK) race relations were going well. But some make a living of of division and live off instigating hate. I have had alot of hate directed at me because I am white and believe in GOD, the Constitution and support President Trump, Remember that and take care
