Black Minister to Black Lives Matter: Why Are You Not Cleaning up Your Own Community?

black-lives-matter-tees-APThe outspoken minister at West Angeles Church of God in Christ, Jonathan Gentry, came out swinging Saturday on Black Lives Matter, asking the group: “Why are you not cleaning up your own community if black lives matter?”

“Where were they at in Chicago?” Rev. Gentry asked Fox Business host Charles Payne. “Where were you at in Baltimore? Where were you at in Ferguson last week when 9-year-old Jamyla Bolden was shot dead in her own home in that drive-by shooting on Tuesday night?”

Gentry urged presidential candidates to “challenge” the anti-police activists if they attempt to crash a campaign event. He received national notoriety after his rant against the rioters and looters in the wake of Michael Brown’s death went viral . . .

Gentry’s comments come on the heels of a new Rasmussen poll revealed that 64 percent of black Americans prefer the phrase “all lives matter.” The poll also found that 78 percent of all respondents preferred “all lives matter.” (Read more from “Black Minister to Black Lives Matter: Why Are You Not Cleaning up Your Own Community?” HERE)

    If these black lives matter want to do something useful why don’t they start in their own neighborhoods to make a difference. Of course TV cameras won’t follow them around. Go back andstart picking up the litter. Clean up the streets and while your at it clean up your mouth

    Well, Al Sharpton can answer that question: Ain’t no money in it. We can only hope that this minority of blacks will stop listening to the “Sharptons” and start listening to the “Gentrys.”
