Eurochristian nationalism has been used to justify white supremacy. Many within communities of color, with colonized minds, seek to assimilate to a Euroamerican version of Christianity which is detrimental to their being. This presentation will explore what it means to see through the eyes of the dominant culture, how one rejects the Christianity of the dominant culture, and how one begins to create a different cultural foundation upon which to base one’s faith. On the intersection of liberation theology and postcolonial theory, the presentation will explore an indigenous Latinx way by which to conduct ethical analysis based on the revolutionary activities of the Young Lords—a 1960s Chicago/NYC street gang.
