Condemn All Racism (81182-C2-¶162.A)

Amend ¶ 162.A as follows:
¶ 162.  III.  THE SOCIAL COMMUNITY
A) Rights of Racial and Ethnic Persons - ...
... Racism plagues and cripples our growth in Christ, inasmuch as it is antithetical to the gospel itself.   White people are unfairly granted privileges and benefits that are denied to persons of color.  Racism breeds racial discrimination. ...

Rationale

The paragraph eloquently explains the un-Christian nature of racism in a general and timeless manner.  Singling out white people for vilification distracts from the message of condemnation of all racism, and could be considered U.S.-centric by ethnic groups in other parts of the world being persecuted by non-whites.
