By Claire K. McKeever-Burgett.

“Claire, the judge declared a mistrial in the Vanderbilt rape case.”

“No,” I said with horror. “No!”

Silence hung between us, the silence our palpable, “Yes.”

Apparently the foreman of the jury was raped and did not disclose this information during jury selection. However, he claims it was consensual. His parents claim it was statutory rape.

This is why I’m not an attorney, I think, as I shake my head and fall to my knees.

I remain body-broken on the floor for quite some time, wondering how as a pastor, theologian, person of faith, woman, soon to be mother I will respond. I remain body-broken on the floor with grief, and like Rachel, I refuse to be comforted because our children are no more. 

The young woman who was raped by Vanderbilt football players in the summer of 2013 will now have to relive her horror all over again. She will have to muster the courage and the strength to face her abusers; she will have to call upon her dignity and her breath to speak in a new trial... more

A version of this blog was posted previously at The Huffington Post

In the wake of the devastating terrorist attack on June 17, 2015 at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina it has become apparent that this nation needs to deal with the pervasive issues of malicious racism and white privilege.Emmanuel AME, affectionately referred to as Mother Emmanuel, is one of the oldest and most historic African American churches. Numerous significant events in the struggle for black freedom and civil rights took place there. 

Dylann Roof entered this church where the people welcomed him. He took part in the Bible Study for one hour and was not suspected of anything. If the roles were reversed and a black man entered a white church would the black man be welcomed into the church or be treated with suspicion? This is white privilege.
