  •  There is a good bit on that in the movie Sounder (0+ / 0-)

    where the Taj Mahal character talks about sneaking into a White church building, being discovered, and running for his life. As he ran, he tells the children, he was praying loudly to God to forgive him. "Think nothing of it, my son," comes a voice from above. "I've been trying to get in there for a hundred years."

    Jimmy Carter tried to get a Black friend admitted as a member of his SBC church, and couldn't manage it. Some years later he very publicly quit the SBC over its embrace of new lows in misogyny.
