look at trinity church site ...

We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.

so above all he for his black race not the entire country, if a white, yellow,brown etc person were to worship in these tight confines of segregation would so many cast their votes so blindly. if he truly cares for ALL Americans equally then why would he worship in a church that is racial, and does not OPENLY welcome ALL!

all races have suffered slavery!!!! we are so far beyond that! CHANGE is the only thing constant. we must continue to all join together, for we are fellow countryman with such love and hope for our country that each of us would gladly help each other if given the chance. . no matter what the media and the politicians claim the truth is that we have a deep and rich love for each other, and our land.
