Additionally, it seems to me that much of the anti-racist work that must be done in Canadian culture involves interrogating our history and cultural assumptions. Understanding that racist ideologies underpinned the growth of European colonialism and the settler culture to which I belong, I have undertaken series of posts on what the Scriptures say about Empire, and on undoing the bad theology that sustained and sustains the colonial endeavour.
