Abstract 

In this article, the author describes the oppression and hardships of the Jews in the book of Exodus, and tacitly implies that a similar situation has arisen in contemporary America. He suggested that racism morphs from a dislike of a group of strangers to eventual hatred and oppression of that group. In a larger context, the piece argued that persecuted groups with a faith in God become stronger through their suffering. The author argued that Christians must struggle together for democracy and equality despite oppression.
