Black church leaders demand apology for Trump ad

Jack Jenkins
 
(RNS) — Leaders of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and the pastor of an AME congregation in Wilmington, Delaware, are condemning a Trump-Pence campaign ad that uses footage of Joe Biden kneeling in the sanctuary of a Black church, describing it as racist and demanding an apology.
 
The Rev. Silvester S. Beaman, pastor of Bethel AME Church, which is featured in the digital spot released Wednesday (Sept. 9), said it encourages viewers to see Black church leaders and their flocks as “#### rule breakers.”
 
“The ad is overtly racist and offensive on numerous levels,” Beaman told Religion News Service on Saturday (Sept. 12). “It is a racist attack on the African American church, and because it was an attack on the Christian church, it should be offensive to every Christian and person of faith.”
 
Beaman was joined by leaders of the AME denomination, who are preparing a statement to be released on Monday decrying the ad.
 
"This ad subtly incites white terrorism against people of color and attacks the Black Church and Black people for refusing to bow down to the idol called white supremacy," reads a draft of the statement provided to RNS.

I don't understand the logic of the riots happening in Trump's America being Joe Biden's fault.
