Christian author and apologist Josh McDowell has issued an apology for his recent remarks at a gathering of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC), where he implied that most African Americans and minorities had not been raised to value education and hard work.

McDowell, who has authored or co-authored over 150 books, delivered a message on Critical Race Theory (CRT) on Saturday at the AACC event. During his remarks, he asserted that African Americans and other minorities do have equal opportunities like most Americans.

“I do not believe blacks, African Americans, and many other minorities have equal opportunity,” McDowell argued, according to The Christian Post. “Why? Most of them grew up in families where there is not a big emphasis on education, security — you can do anything you want. You can change the world. If you work hard, you will make it,” he said.
