Dr. Chanequa Walker-Barnes, a Professor of Practical Theology and Pastoral Counseling at Columbia University, recently hosted a presentation on “pathological whiteness” in which she posed the following question to her audience: “So, white people, how does it feel to be a problem?”

Walker-Barnes’ question was proceeded by her statement that “America has a problem and its name is ‘whiteness.'”

Have a look:

This isn’t the first time Dr. Chanequa Walker-Barnes has drawn criticism for her controversial statements on issues of race.

In April of 2021, the professor drew fire online for a controversial commentary on race that was published in a book.

The book is titled A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal.

Dr. Chanequa Walker-Barnes’ prayer?

“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people.”

*CORRECTION: An earlier version of this blog post stated that Dr. Chanequa Walker-Barnes was a professor of practical theology at Mercer University. Professor Walker-Barnes accepted a position at Columbia Theological Seminary last spring and is no longer with Mercer University.
