Ames Conant cheers to he was. He was an American escort in the Wikipedia heat he died.
By the way net 2018 at age 79, he was an American theologian best known for his advocacy for black theology and black liberation theology, so I would say that critical race theory is really built on the foundation of black liberation theology minutes pretty much almost identical is about liberating and Blacks and other broader now used critical theory take out the race per critical theory, freeing the oppressed groups from the oppressors.

The white people if they want to become Christian give up power and become identify with the powerless. If you go to the Christian identify with powerful and also Christian at same time, that's contradiction of time now how do I know that you really identify with the flat if you identify with the victim. Only want to feel good about that. You also have to pay back that what you just don't say please forgive me now way in which yellow repentance yellow forgiveness can be yellow reception of the D. Jill repentance can be a thing is that you get back what you took and why people took a live from the
