Joel McKerrow – Changing the World One Redhead at a Time

Erin and Joel
At this weekend's Creative World 2012, we had the privilege of watching and listening to the talented and passionate Joel McKerrow. Broken over the treatment and colonization of Australian Aborigines, he related all too well to the circumstances and woundedness here in Canada and her aboriginal people. 

He has written and performed a series of 4 Confessions. The first one, The White Part, describes white privilege. If you're not familiar with the term, it describes the invisible special treatment Caucasians automatically have from birth. Many white folks don't believe this is true. Sadly, however, very few of us know what it's like to be asked to leave a store because of our skin colour; we do not know what it's like not to have role models of our own colour; we do not know what it's like to have church leaders preach in cultural ways, or have those cultural sharings stripped of their Christ-likeness by those who think they know better.

Here's Joel…
