KRITZINGER, Johannes (Klippies) N.J.. White responses to Black Theology: Revisiting a typology. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2022, vol.78, n.3, pp.1-9. ISSN 2072-8050.

This article reflects on a threefold typology of white responses to Black Theology (rejection-sympathy-solidarity) which I used in my doctoral thesis (1988). This article, which is dedicated to the memory of Vuyani Vellem, shows how the typology was used by him in a publication. It then points out a number of inadequacies in the typology and places it in a framework of encounters between the praxis of a Black Theology of Liberation (BTL) and a liberating white praxis (LWP). It uses a seven-dimensional 'praxis matrix' to explore such encounters, which happen along with an encounter with the praxis of the poor and the praxis of God. Since a typology of white praxes remains useful, an expanded six-fold typology is suggested to replace the previous one. CONTRIBUTION: The contribution of this article is to deepen reflection on the dynamics of interaction between white theologians and a BTL
