“Prejudice is so prevalent that it seems to be an integral part of the human condition itself. Even those who suffer the intolerance of others will in turn display their own biases. While prejudice lurks everywhere, it becomes especially deadly when those in positions of power exercise the powerless. Then it erupts in acts of avoidance, violence and extermination…George Kelsey and Kyle Haselden look upon prejudice from a theological point of view. Kelsey calls racism a faith, a form of idolatry. As faith it does not rest on facts. ‘Declarations of faith do not need to be proved from evidences in the objective world of facts. They do not need to be proved because the devotee of a faith is convinced that his faith assertions are reflections of the fundamental order of reality.’ For example, Kelsey sees racism as calling into question God’s justice in that the Blacks suffer not only for Adam’s fall but for a second, special, racial one. While God made provision for the first fall, such racists believe, He did not do anything for the second, so ‘the Negro is a permanent victim of history and ultimately without hope.’” (Sakae Kubo, The God of Relationships, 1993, p. 19-20)
