In this article, non-SBC author S. Donald Fortson III, Professor of Church History and Practical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary (Charlotte, NC), reviews The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism by Jemar Tisby, a past panel participant with the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission on the topic of racism. Fortson writes,

A number of his sources (see endnotes) are ideologically driven books opposed to conservative political perspectives. This ideological bias explains why Tisby’s account is so one-sided – he’s attempting to make a political argument, and scholarship that doesn’t fit the narrative he’s creating is excluded.
