As I read Voddie Baucham’s “Thoughts on Ferguson” I was bothered, not because of what he said, but because of what he left out. I was concerned because this is just the sort of ammunition, from an African American pastor mind you, that some people need to disregard what is really at the heart of the issue in Ferguson. As BJ Thompson tweeted,
@VoddieBaucham has it ever occurred to you that your emphasis on missing black fathers as the cause actually perpetuates racial apathy?

That’s why I glad to hear about Thabiti Anyabwile’s (indirect) ‘response’ in “Four Common But Misleading Themes in Ferguson-Like Times.” I recommend you read it.
