Donald Sterling, owner of the LA Clippers, has been banned for life from NBA events and fined 2.5 million dollars due to his hurtful and racist comments recently leaked to the public. Phillip Holmes from Christ & Pop Culture notesSterling as one public example of widespread racism still alive and well today.
“Don’t think for one second that believers that think like Sterling don’t exist,” he writes, and share his own experience as a black man in largely white church circles. According to Holmes, interracial dating and marriage is still a huge sticking point for many white parents and pastors. His own college mentor dissuaded him from interracial dating, and admitted later that “he could not bear the thought of one of his daughters marrying a black man.”
So what are Christians to make of this incognito racism in our churches and families?

Guidelines for 'Sharia compliant' wills could open the door to recognizing Islamic law in the United Kingdom, Britain's The Telegraph reports.
The new guidelines, produced by the Law Society, will allow lawyers to draft Islamic wills that are compliant with U.K. law even though they discriminate against non-Muslims, women and adopted children.
Such wills could give a woman a lesser share of an inheritance than a man, prevent unbelievers from receiving an inheritance and exclude adopted children as legitimate heirs.
Critics of the guidelines warned they're a step towards establishing a parallel legal system in the UK.

The National Church of Bey gathers to sing the former Destiny's Child member's hits every Sunday. Known to have some of the most dedicated fans in the world, whom she refers to as 'Beys', Beyoncé has achieved not only global fame but a cult following.
