More than in any time in our nation's history, there's a greater opportunity now for minority populations to let their voices be heard, influence society, and reshape the role of government in their lives. This is not the time for violence, nor is it the time to demand more handouts from governments that have failed to give minorities what they truly need and deserve: a better life so they can achieve their own destiny. A Manifesto: Christian America's Contract with Minorities by Bishop Harry R. Jackson Jr. sets the stage for a biblical agenda or manifesto to bring about social change in our nation. Christians of every denomination and ethnic stripe are welcome to join this coalition to contribute to our national vision and strategic direction. Rather than continuing to let government view minorities as precocious children too young to drive, A Manifesto offers an outline to strengthen people to work together to be empowered in key areas, from education and public policy reform to wealth creation and entrepreneurship. Christians everywhere are urged to join in and build a brighter tomorrow for all of us.
