Watch: Lecrae Responds To Backlash Over ‘Slavery Was a #WhiteBlessing’ Conversation

Published: Tuesday 16th Jun 2020 by Rashad

‘Gravity’ hitmaker Lecrae soared to the top of Twitter’s trending topics over the last 24 hours after a conversation he had with  Atlanta megachurch pastor Louie Giglio and Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy went viral.

The interaction may have been billed as “honest conversation about race on the church,” but it may have gotten a little too honest when Giglio suggested ‘White privilege’ be henceforth referred to as ‘White blessing’ in reference to how the present day affluence of many in the United States is rooted directly from the benefits of hundreds of years of slavery.

Lecrae became a target of criticism due to his submissive response as he nodded his head ‘yes’ as the pastor spoke.

Look inside to see his response to the hoopla as well as the video that got it all started.

The original video:

“We understand the curse that was slavery, white people do. And we say that was bad. But we miss the blessing of slavery – that it actually built up the framework for the world that white people live in and lived in. And so a lot of people call this white privilege and when you say those two words it just is like a fuse goes off for a lot of white people because they don’t want somebody telling them to check their privilege.”  – Giglio

      I agree. It’s so aggravating, like everybody doesn’t need to chime in on the issue at all. Do the work, stop with the mouth game!
