To ascribe an inheritance of guilt based purely on one’s skin “color” is the very essence of racism. For one to claim that a person shares the same (historical) culpability as the wickedly unjust; a claim based solely on one’s given attribute (i.e., skin “color”) is, again, the absolute epitome of racism!
Unsurprisingly, Christians are ever so susceptible to this tactic due to the indoctrination of Sin Nature; and further, the belief that one inherits their father’s sin (i.e., Original Sin). Is there a greater injustice than the genetic inheritance of guilt? Thus, due to this paradigm, one may argue that these ideas helped spur on the “Legal Agreement” that one possesses “the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law”.
