but did you read the Bible…

There are days when being Black and an Atheist are just exhausting. 
When Black Americans say that God will keep things fair and protect the just my mind flashes back to slavemasters introducing Christianity to slaves to control and shame them. 
And how people staunchly indoctrinated in dogma refuse to address the lack of condemnation of rape and slavery from a biblical standpoint. 

Or the oppression of women. 

That the bible and many of its followers accept this as divine province is beyond scary.
