After my colleague WK recommended it, I picked up Edgar Villanueva’s book Decolonizing Wealth and it is everything.
Villanueva speaks to everything from the history of colonization as a political and philosophical practice to basic leadership skills to the sins of fake diversity training (“global bleaching”) to Native American history.
White People: this is required reading for us. This is a book to grapple with personally and in groups. This is a book that will make it impossible to continue life as usual.
If we are serious about doing more than marching or posting how woke we are, please read this book and then work to decolonize our culture – including the Church.
P.S. Also please read The Bible. Compare and contrast with Villanueva’s book for a very interesting conversation.
