As to "I find it difficult to imagine how “more than six in ten white Christians” deny what is to me a self-evident statement: namely, “that ‘generations of slavery and discrimination have created conditions that make it difficult for blacks to work their way out of the lower class.’” it depends on how the question was asked ie what words were used while in some places it can be more difficult in many places blacks have the same opportunity if they work hard. Opportunities can vary based on where one is. The more left leaning the area the more racist. Wording can change how something is perceived and how one responds. As to "white supremacy symbols" one would have to say what they are to judge how people responds to someone being for them. For example some would see the US flag as such a symbol. For some the bible or even the cross is such a symbol. Without knowing what "symbols" he means it is hard to make a call on that. Also some symbols mean different things to different people and no ONE group has the right to define what all symbols mean.

I don’t think all evangelicals are racists but they are The most fanatical and reliable supporters of a blatantly racist president.

I guess Mr. Luo thinks white Christians are the source of all evil in the world, which would make him a racist. A major characteristic of racism is over-generalization and it is found in all people groups, including Chinese, probably as a result of our fallen nature. Maybe Mr. Luo could try getting a job with the Nation Of Islam Daily News? We don't have a hereditary class system here in the United States but we do have people with different income levels, which is not the same thing. Poor people can become rich and vice versa. If average African American income levels are lower because of systemic racism, why are Asian American income levels much higher than even "white" income levels? I am sorry that not all Christians live up to Jesus' teachings, but that is not a flaw with his teachings. Jesus himself even said that only God is good. Mr. Luo might think that if intellectuals like him ran the world things would be better. That has been tried out with Karl Marx's godless teachings and it has cost many millions of lives. God's ways are better and I thank Jesus for helping us to get along and forgive one another.
