The wealth of the country was created on the backs of enslaved persons, and the legacy of slavery, grief, suffering and abuse continue today.“Passing the resolution is in recognition of our collective complicity and contributing to the impoverishment of black communities,” Bishop Eugene Sutton said to the convention following the vote. “I had nothing to do with enslaving persons. I’m not guilty of that, but I have a responsibility. … I know we don’t all agree that this is the best vehicle to make amends. We all do agree, I’m quite sure, that we will do all we can to eradicate the sin of racism off the face of the earth and repair the damage that it has done to this nation, this state and our communities for centuries.”For more, read the full release here.
