Recently, Bishop T. D. Jakes is speaking out against what has been going on against black men in America. Does it surprise you? Usually, he has made a great impact to attract a multicultural following and it seems like this is what has caused him to keep his mega-church like some other famous black pastors and televangelists. However, since the two recent tragic situations in Ferguson and New York, we don't think these celebrity black preachers like Bishop Jakes can hold back anymore. According to BlackChristianNews.com, Bishop T.D. Jakes told worshipers at The Potter’s House Church in
Dallas that black men should not be “tried on the sidewalk.” At Ebenezer
AME Church in Fort Washington, Maryland, choir members sang “We Shall
Overcome” for worshippers wearing T-shirts that read “Black Lives
Matter” and “I Can’t Breathe.” Men at the West Angeles Church of God in
Christ in Los Angeles stood more than four rows deep around the altar
for a special blessing and message from the pastor, Presiding Bishop
Charles E. Blake. In the meantime, we will keep Bishop T. D. Jakes in our prayers.
