I suppose I would do the same thing if I were them. The truth is that unfortunately this is the mindset of many - maybe the majority - of the Black churches in the United States. They are overtly and proudly anti-White. They preach hate against Whitey from the pulpits, and the IRS does nothing to them for fear of being called racist - the ultimate irony. The new website has a video with a White woman on the still screen. Hmmm....guess that proves they're not really racists.

Here is the original text, which among other things, proclaims their allegience to the continent of Africa, not America.
We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization.
God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.
