Congratulation Bishop Jake's For Not Remaining Silent About Racism!
Readers, hate is real! The T.D. Jakes Show had the families of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner and Sandra Bland on the show yesterday for a very important conversation that they were hoping everyone in America would also participate in. I don't think they were looking for some of those hateful comments.
I am so tired of the rhetoric...whenever there is a discussion about blacks and the injustices that occurs, blacks are told to get over it and when people say things like "all lives matter" folks take that as another way to tell blacks you don't matter. In my opinion, the vast majority of churches have always been silent to racism, discrimination and segregation way before, Jerry Farwell even said and promoted that segregation discrimination was ok as he preached the "Gospel". Will the vast majority of churches continue to be silent? It appears that it will not, if Bishop Jakes has anything to do with it. Thank God for Bishop TD Jakes for using his stage to bring more awareness.
