James White on Ethnic Gnosticism

Dr. James White has recently been in a firestorm over a short post he made concerning the actions of a young black male. Charges of racism were leveled at him because, *evidently*, only blacks can comment on black issues. Dr. White in response in his most recent Dividing Line addresses this issue of Ethnic Gnosticism, the idea that only a person of the same ethnicity can comment on issues of his or her ethnicity.

Racism is an ugly phenomenon. Reverse racism is just as ugly, except it is cloaked in a facade of self-righteousness, and both are sins to be repented. I honestly do not see any substantial difference between racism, and reverse racism.
