Sadly Tisby's book would have been far sharper and effective if he had only given out advance drafts to thoughtful politically conservative evangelicals and had asked for their critiuesFor instance David French and Russell Moore come to mind They seem to be racially sensitive French has an adopted daughter from Ethiopia and both of them were under fire for their 2016 anti Trump stand Additionally French and Moore are both genuinely and passionately committed to pro life and religious freedom causesTisby also would have benefitted from learning a whole lot about conservative economic and political philosophy say from Thomas Sowell's Conflict of Visions Sowell happens to be African American Like most in academia Tisby exists in a liberal monoculture and simply does not understand how conservatives think or why they passionately hold some of the viewpoints that they doFor instance while Tisby's main axiom is racism never goes away; it just adapts he seems not to be willing to entertain the possibility that perhaps actual solutions to racism and racial disparities adapt over time as well Could it be that today's liberal ideas and policies are not always the most helpful at attaining either racial reconciliation or African American educational vocational and economic advancementMeanwhile it is all too tempting to attribute the rise of the Religious Right entirely to racism and ignore other complexities It was a big mistake for Tisby to have relied so heavily on Randall Balmer's deeply problematic narrative For starters if Southern Baptists didn't start out as uniformly pro life in the early 70's then that's because the SBC wasn't all that conservative back then The SBC's Conservative Resurgence began in 1979 Also Balmer is hardly an objective evangelical historian; rather he was part of that cottage industry of paranoid books about America's theocracy after George W Bush was reelected in 2004 Surely Balmer would never ever see left wing religious involvement in politics as similarly theocratic but would only praise such effortsAgain is it possible that some conservative evangelicals back in the 70's found Bob Jones' ban on interracial dating odious but also found the idea of governmental meddling in Christian institutions frighteningIf so then in fact their fear wasn't unwarranted Fast forward a few decades after the 1983 BJU SCOTUS 1983 and following identical legal logic the US Solicitor General in Obergefell 2015 realistically threatened the tax exempt status of every Christian church and para church organization which attempts to faithfully teach and live out the church's 2000 year tradition of biblically orthodox sexual ethicsTisby seems not to have engaged with any intelligent critics of the Black Lives Matter movement such as Heather MacDonald Although he does separate the organization from the hashtag slogan he glosses over the fact that Michael Brown's supposed Hands up Don't shoot cry was a hoax that galvanized the BLM movement He also doesn't mention that Michael Brown was violent even if unarmed and there appears to have been ample forensic evidence to have justly acuitted the cop Darren Wilson Eric Garner's death was horrific and the NYPD cop on the scene
