One thing I've noticed is that a majority of white Baptists are politically conservative, while most black Baptists are politically liberal. A couple of months ago, I was talking about politics with my Jewish bass guitar teacher and he said I was the first white Baptist he had met who was a progressive. I responded that there are many Democrats in Congress who are Baptist and that three out of the four Baptist U.S. Presidents have been Democrats. Even though white Baptists are disproportionally connies, it isn't fair to lump all of us into the right-wing camp. So, I have a couple of topics for discussion: 1. Why are white Baptists stereotyped as all being conservative in spite of the multitude of white Baptist Democratic politicians? 2. Why are there more white liberal Baptists than black conservative Baptists?
