Perhaps the problem is that the "church" to which blacks are going is a "black church" with a "black preacher" like Jeremiah Wright. How about instead of sticking with a church because it's "black", people start going to a godly church with a godly preacher and not worry about what color of skin he has. BTW, that works the same for "white" churches as well!!

I wonder if Star Parker knows where Christ meets the most black Christians? Would she believe it's the Catholic Church?

Catholic members of color can come to Rome and find that a large number of blacks are Cardinals and bishops; all serving Our Lord faithfully, side by side with white and Asian prelates. We know of holy black people who have been raised to the altars; sainthood, in the Catholic Church.

The most famous and beloved of black saints is 4th century Doctor of the Church Saint Augustine of Hippo. (Hippo was an African country.)

God made them black and loves them just the color He made them. If only all of them would love him in return!

They need to learn more than just about money and sports. I loved to hear Andre Watts play piano. A brilliant classical pianist; his mother Polish and his dad an American negro. Andre was a phenom at the keyboard! You'll prolly find him on YouTube.

Perhaps history will show that the first black president’s biggest contribution to black America was forcing this community to come to terms with its own identity and priorities.

By formalizing his support of same sex marriage, President Obama has pushed blacks to decide what is most important to them. The Biblical message they hear in church every Sunday, or the big government liberalism that they regularly vote for on Tuesday of Election Day.

I’ve often talked about what I call the “Sunday-Tuesday Gap’ in black America.

The black church has always played a central role in black American life. Blacks...
