"My brethren, as believers in our glorious LORD Jesus Christ, don't show favoritism."
- James 2:1
 
I imagine that most people would hate to be accused of racial bias. They like to think of themselves as being fair and open-minded.

Whatever your race may be;
Who serves my Father as a son
Is surely kin to me.
