The Right Reverend Robert Wright, the 10th Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta, speaks with Rev. Wallis about the original sin of racism and how we need to find empathy through proximity.

"George Floyd, a man was publicly asphyxiated, violently asphyxiated for the entire world to see, not unlike the public asphyxiation that happened on Calvary. We see this and we've got to speak up. If the Bible says anything, it says that God and neighbor both are irreducible. That God and neighbor [are] synonymous. It's in some ways, not a Black thing. And it's certainly not a white thing. It's a neighbor thing."
