Bishop T. D. Jakes Says Black Men Should Not Be "Tried on the Sidewalk"

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, 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.
