This Week from the Spirit Matters Journal of Dr. Matthew V. Johnson

“Just a general observation on American society. This comment seems to me justified in the way the society, culture and the mass media treats issues concerning whites and blacks, as well as whites and blacks deferentially in matters that concern them both. What follows is a phenomenological observation not a normative affirmation.

Black people’s whole struggle seems to be the vicissitudes of their efforts to matter. While the entire presumption of White society is that they have ultimate significance while all other’s significance is a derivative of their place in how white people see themselves. It must be nice to live in a cultural universe where one matters so much. Of course this is a question of the entanglements of pathological narcissism, the different levels of causality and the existential entrance point in the received framework.”
