    Will the gb finally admit there is systemic racism at the highest levels of the organization.

    What? Is this real?

    Seriously doubt that's on there.

    There are two definitions of racism

    1. An individual bigot

    2. Someone who perpetuates hegemonic, especially European or national majority racial or ethnic privilege either actively or passively

    Since most Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe in either changing the politics or the culture of this world, most of them, with the exception of a few bethelites working to preserve dying languages through Watchtower literature fall into the second category.

    I remember reading an application form to go away to the MTS that asks the applicant his race. Why is such information needed?

    I took a look at an application (A-8). No question about "racism" on there,

    In the TOMO3 worship article, you can see that his daughters in law are both black. Maybe between him and Herd, they are trying to weed out any residual racism in the borg.

    God is not a racist. As of November 2014 the full Bible has been translated into 531 languages, and 2,883 languages have at least some portion of the Bible.

    The Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses is not racist. Their monthly English language televangelical shows, featuring themselves, have no doubt been translated into all the other languages spoken by Jehovah's Witnesses apart from English.

    The Watchtower Society is not racist. For example Jesus is depicted as a white caucasian in their books and magazines. And everyone knows that the color white is a blend of all the colors under the rainbow.
