RACIAL PERFORMANCE AND RELIGIOUS COMPLICITY: RACIALISED DISCOURSE AND PERPETRATOR CULTURE

Gerrie F. Snyman

Abstract


A review is presented of Kelley’s (2002) Racializing Jesus. Race, Ideology and the
Formation of Modern Biblical Scholarship, in terms of the following question: “If
the argument about Western culture’s complicity in racism is taken seriously, how
does one move forward towards a hermeneutic that is racially sensitive but not
racist?” In terms of the current trend of African discontent with the role of Western
hermeneutics in Africa, the article questions the validity of the (general) accusation
of Western complicity in the perpetration of racism when the accuser as victim
appears to exploit categories of Western hermeneutics.
