Our Skin Or Our Sin?

Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned. ~ Romans 5:10

Is a person or system bad based on the color of a people’s skin? Critical Race Theory tries to say the (white) system is bad because it’s ruled by whites and white privilege. But do whites have some kind of monopoly on oppression? What about the oppression in Communist China, societies in Northern Africa and the Middle East, or by the Mexican cartel? Would the system be free of oppression and corruption if it was non-white? Does injustice exist because whites exist? Would injustice be extinct if whites were extinct? The problem has nothing to do with skin but has everything to do with sin. “Yellow, red, and black and white”—all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23), but Christ died for all that we might become one unified, holy people in Him.
