  • In the Christian subculture, some say that ouridentity is only spiritual, only grounded “inChrist,” which I agree is true and ultimate. Yet,when this theological conviction is held to theexclusion to the reality of who we are on earthand our innate social and genetic context, itsounds an awful like Gnosticism, the firstheresy of church history, a belief that our bodydoesn’t matter and only the spiritual matters.” -DJ Chuang
  • “If you subscribe to a color-blind racialideology, you don’t think that race or racismexists, or that it should exist. You are morelikely to think that people who talk about raceand racism are the ones who perpetuate it.You think that racial problems are just isolatedincidents and that people need to get over itand move on.” -Brendesha Tynes

  • “Popular opinion may project Asians andAsian Americans as super achievers,scoring high on the SAT, dominatingprestigious colleges and working as high-paid professionals, but the dark side ofthat narrative is that they are muchmore likely than the average Americanto commit suicide, according to a recentreport from the U.S. Centers for DiseaseControl and Prevention (CDC).
  • At Cornell University, for instance, 13 of the21 student suicide victims between 1996and 2006 were Asians or Asian Americans.That picture is not complete unless youconsider that Asians make up of only 14percent of the total Cornell student body.” -Andrew Lam
  • “Although we dont have good statistics[yet], we believe that many Asian Americanstudents are prone to feeling depressedover a lack of achievement," Sue says.Getting Bs instead of As on a report cardmay not seem like a great sin to moststudents, Sue says.
  • But in a culture and family structure wheresacrifice by an older generation for theadvancement — and education — of itschildren is a deep-seated tenet, feelings ofshame for "failing" can become unbearable,Sue says, noting that this pattern is mostevident in families with immigrantparents and among foreign students sentto study at U.S. universities by theirfamilies.” -Hilary Hylton

  • “[Chinese parents] assume strength, notfragility, and as a result they behave verydifferently....Chinese parents demand perfectgrades because they believe that their childcan get them. If their child doesnt get them,the Chinese parent assumes its because thechild didnt work hard enough. Thats why thesolution to substandard performance is alwaysto excoriate, punish and shame the child. TheChinese parent believes that their child will bestrong enough to take the shaming and toimprove from it.” -Amy Chua

A century later, nearly70 percent of the world’s Christians live in Africa,Asia, and Latin America. Christian adherence andvitality are waning in the global North and West, andthey are rising in the global South and East.” -Joel Carpenter
  • Multiracial Church“If we want to visualize a “typical” contemporaryChristian, we should think of a woman living in avillage in Nigeria or in a Brazilian favela. . . . Soon,the phrase “a White Christian” may sound like acurious oxymoron, as mildly surprising as “aSwedish Buddhist.” Such people can exist, but aslight eccentricity is implied.” -Philip Jenkins
