2 thoughts on “J. Kameron Carter on the Fourth of July

  1. While I’m fine with theology’s participation in the process of the ‘racial production of the human’, I’m having problems from the outset with the claim that: ‘modern racial discourse and practice have their genesis inside Christian theological discourse and missiological practice, which themselves were tied to the practice of empire in the advance of Western civilisation’. I’m hoping he doesn’t have a ‘West’ problem a la Agamben. For Carter, would something like discrimination against burakumin in Japan not be a ‘racial’ issue? Or, would it become a part of his story somehow ‘after’ modernity? Looking forward to reading the book.
