Broken Covenant is a great way to describe racism. It's the opposite of what God intends for humanity. It is the rejection of the other, which is entirely contrary to the Word of God incarnate in Jesus Christ. PC(USA) Office of Public Witness @PCUSAWashington August 26, 2020

A Vision of the Intercultural Community
At the 222th General Assembly in 2016, we took the steps to revise our Antiracism policy from 1999. The white arrow above takes you to the full policy, Facing Racism. Facing Racism study guides can be found here.
Antiracist effort is an essential aspect of Christian discipleship, without which we fail to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.
In 2020, GA overwhelmingly approved the resolution "Responding to the Sin of Racism and a Call to Action" in which we declare that Black Lives Matter; confess that the church has been complicit in perpetuating injustice; and pledge to confront and dismantle systemic racism in the church and in society.
At the end of both documents are guidelines for us to follow to do the work God calls us to do.

The beauty of anti-racism is that you don't have to pretend to be free of racism to be an anti-racist. Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it, including in yourself. And it's the only way forward.
