Here are 7 Bible verses that clearly lay out God’s position on racism and equality under Heaven:

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” -Genesis 1:27

“Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” -Matthew 22:39

“And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.” -Luke 6:31

“Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” -John 7:24

“For there is no respect of persons with God.” -Romans 2:11

“For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.” -Romans 10:12

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” -Galatians 3:28

God loves everyone, and every single human being is fashioned in His image. Racism is incompatible with God’s love for us, and it’s incompatible with how God tells us to love one another. May all of us unequivocally condemn racism and bigotry. And may all of you reading this — regardless of the color of your skin — feel and experience the love of God today.

God bless you.
