George Yancey is a sociologist and professor of sociology at Baylor University. Dr. Yancey's academic interest lies in race relations and anti-Christian attitudes in the United States. Concerning racial issues, he has developed a Christian model for race relations that can take us beyond colorblindness and anti-racism. This is covered in his book Beyond Racial Gridlock. While his early academic career dealt largely with racial issues; lately he has focused on issues of Christianophobia. Many of the lessons learned dealing with racial issues also apply as it concerns anti-Christian bias.
