What is Repentance

“The way we act, the way we fail to act is a disgrace which must not go on forever.  This is not a white man’s world.  This is not a colored man’s world.  It is God’s world.  No man has a place in this world, who tried to keep another man in his place. It is time for the white man to repent.  We have failed to use the avenues open to us to educate the hearts and minds of men, to identify ourselves with those who are underprivileged.  But repentance is more than contrition and remorse for sins, for harms done.  Repentance means a new insight, a new spirit.  It also means a course of action."  Abraham Joshua Heschel
