Ryan Bomberger: “Categorizing ourselves by the disastrous human construct of ‘race’ has never benefitted humanity”
January 31, 2022
WASHINGTON D.C. — In a time full of discord and disagreement in America, many find themselves focused on what separates humanity—age, political views, cultural factors and especially race. For Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.radiance.life), the focus should be on what unites rather than on what divides.
“We are all one human race,” Bomberger commented. “Categorizing ourselves by the disastrous human construct of ‘race’ has never benefitted humanity. It’s only brought discrimination, destruction, and death. Racism is a sin. Exploiting it is too. Now, decades after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. told us that we should be judged by the content of our character, a radical ‘progressive’ movement is demanding that we be judged by our color and that character is irrelevant.”
The “social justice” movement inspired by Marxist ideologies—such as the controversial Critical Race Theory (CRT)—demands society see everything through the broken prism of race. Like a cancer, CRT is spreading in political spheres and, tragically, also in the Church. This focus on race creates division rather than unity, and promotes emotional hostility towards one another as evidenced by an exploitative #BlackLivesMatter movement, according to Bomberger.
Bomberger stated, “Agenda-driven organizations, including many in the mainstream media, are systemically misinforming the American people about nearly everything. Many are quick to praise injustice and have no sense of true equality or justice. This confusion begins when fiction is chosen over facts, opinion over objectivity, and advocacy over accuracy.
“Like slavery abolitionist Frederick Douglass, I cannot and will not be silent. Like abortion abolitionist Dr. Mildred Jefferson—the first black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School—I will fight for the most marginalized. We’re called to love. We are called to seek the truth. Justice isn’t possible without either pursuit. The Radiance Foundation believes every life has purpose both in and out of the womb and at any age or stage. The mission of The Radiance Foundation is to illuminate that truth.”
Bomberger concluded, “The evil of racism will never be overcome until we stop dividing ourselves. Race is a human construct that has only served to separate us. When will our hearts embrace what our heads already know? We’re one human race.”
