Re: The Minority Report

Seeing a lot of SJW talking points in that article.


Seems shes not opposed to using statistics to back up her position so at least shes not one of those people that think numerical statistics are racist.


What kind of profiling is she talking about?


Profiling by cops or profiling in the church?

They complained that the UPCI approach to the black community focuses on "poverty" and that's racist. Meanwhile, just below that article we have this:

Well-known social justice advocate and pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina, William J. Barber II, has been announced as one of 25 people to receive a MacArthur "genius" fellowship that comes with an unrestricted $625,000 grant.
...
Barber is being recognized for "building broad-based fusion coalitions as part of a moral movement to confront racial and economic inequality."

The moral movement is the Poor People's Campaign which makes a national call for moral revival.

Re: The Minority Report

Why do I have this nagging suspicion there is more to the exit of this church than just racism?

I believe there's something more as well.

Re: The Minority Report

They bring up the hierarchy of the UPCI not having any blacks in office and point to the PAW as having two previous Prelates who were white. That was in the 70s and 80s. Since then, every Prelate has been black and the current hierarchy of the PAW is solely black.

Let's not pretend the PAW is some perfect organization without any preference to race.

The comment section of the FB video is sad, so much hate and division.

Wasn't surprised to see an old AFFer in the comment section.

Hope this couple is happy with the result of their bitter video. Instead of being part of a solution which brings people together, they've opened up more bitterness and caused even more division.
