Author's Tweet Claiming Christianity And Racism 'Cannot Coexist' Sparks An Internet Debate

By Collin Gossel

If you're ever looking for attention online, two surefire topics to attract it are race and religion. Write a post with both, as African-American author Trillia Newbell did, and you're practically begging for an online debate! On August 16, Newbell posted that "Christianity and racism cannot coexist."

Though she assumably meant that the core principals of Christianity were incompatible with hatred, her post still inspired a fierce online debate about Christianity's history of condoning racism.
