Publisher's Summary

Can it ever get better? This is the question Benjamin Watson is asking. In a country aflame with the fallout from the racial divide - in which Ferguson, Charleston, and the Confederate flag dominate the national news, daily seeming to rip the wounds open ever wider - is there hope for honest and healing conversation? For finally coming to understand each other on issues that are ultimately about so much more than black and white?
An NFL tight end for the New Orleans Saints and a widely read and followed commentator on social media, Watson has taken the Internet by storm with his remarkable insights about some of the most sensitive and charged topics of our day. Now, in Under Our Skin, Watson draws from his own life, his family legacy, and his role as a father to sensitively and honestly examine both sides of the race debate and appeal to the power and possibility of faith as a step toward healing.

What's Under Our Skin?

Watson shines a light on the true problem with racism. "Its not a skin problem, its a sin problem." This is powerful, thought provoking book looking at the issues of race in America. Thanks Ben, this book has not only helped me talk about race with kids and adults, more importantly it has allow me to get with God and deal with the racists views in my own heart.

Eye Opening

I recommend this book to absolutely everyone. Benjamin Watson carefully and eloquently articulates the problem of race in America and offers solutions and ideas about how to solve it. "Under Our Skin" challenged what I knew (or thought I knew) about the racial divide, and inspires me to take a different approach now that I have a new perspective. I pray that others will be challenged and inspired as well.
