Racism is the Most Challenging Issue Confronting America.

A Statement by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the United States

The Bahá’í community has accumulated more than a century of experience in creating models of unity that transcend race, culture, religion, nationality, class, and the differences of gender, providing empirical evidence that humanity in all its diversity can live as a unified global society. Bahá’ís see Unity in Diversity as the law of life; consequently, all prejudices are perceived as diseases that threaten life. Rather than considering that the unity of humankind can be established only after other problems afflicting it have been solved, Bahá’ís believe that both spiritual and material development are dependent upon love and unity. Therefore, the Bahá’ís offer the teachings of their Faith and the example of their community for examination, convinced that these can make a contribution toward the eradication of racism endemic in American society. We do so with firm faith in the assistance of our Creator, Who, out of His infinite love, brought forth all humanity from the same stock and intended that all belong to the same household. We believe, moreover, that the day of the unification of the entire human race has come and that “the potentialities inherent in the station of man, the innate excellence of his reality, must all be manifested in this promised Day of God.”
