Welcome to our weekly episode of Rapzilla.com’s Top Christian Rap News Recap. We endeavor to grab the best stories from the previous week and give them to you every Monday.
Watch Our Christian Rap News Show below:
We’re going to start off with a clip featuring Lecrae that to this point has 2 million views in less than 24 hours. The clip was posted by Nicola Menzie, a former co-worker of mine with the caption: “Pastor Louie Giglio, rapper Lecrae and Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy “had an honest conversation about race and the Church” on June 14. Here’s an example of why words and their meanings matter. “White Privilege” vs. “White Blessings”
Check out the clip & let us know what you think.
The Internet was ablaze talking about this clip and the idea of “white blessings” instead of “white privilege.” Lecrae was on the brunt end of this seemingly more that Pastor Giglio because many felt he should have said something at the time.
Lecrae has since clarified the conversation and its effects and Pastor Giglio has as well. Watch those clips now.
Since we’ve been on the topics of racial reconciliation and community work every week, would also like to highlight Lecrae working with Masks for the People to donate 50,000 masks
and sanitizing supplies to inmates in Georgia.
We want to give a special shout out to Reconcile who met with the Mayor of Miami, Francis Suarez to speak on improving inequality in our city from juvenile justice reform, improving the civilian investigative panel, affordable housing/government housing, income disparities, land banking in communities of color, community policing, mentoring programs, and black empowerment/ownership.
