[Get Solution] The Human Condition
This week, you all will read and do reflective papers for Stone & Duke’ chapter 6 , “The Human Condition,” in How to Think Theologically. Additionally, you will also read an excerpt from Kelly Brown Douglas’ work Stand Your Ground: Black Bodies and the Justice of God. In your 1 page, single spaced response (Times New Roman, 12 pt font), ensure that you attend to the subtle difference the authors make between sin and sinfulness as social conditions rather than ontic states of being. In the Kelly Brown Douglas reading, you should give specific attention to her argument about the theo-ideology that has demonized and dehumanized black bodies perpetually and parochially. What is she arguing serves as the framework of the stand your ground law and culture that provides the implicit background practice that affords white people the ability to exact bodily violence against black and brown persons (Renisha McBride, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, etc.)? Be sure to use the terminology of eternal law and natural law. How is this heightened by hypersexual narratives about black and brown women and men? What is the correlation between Stone & Duke’s chapter on sin as the inherent human condition within Christendom (conservative theological framework/orientation) and KB Douglas’ argument about blackness being corroborated as degenerate and ontologically other?
