Since February 3, 1870, when a Republican Congress ratified the 15th Amendment to insure African Americans had the right to vote, Black pastors have always encouraged their congregations to vote.
Until 1908 they had advised voting for Republicans since they considered the GOP their natural home.
In 1912 Woodrow Wilson and W,E.B. Dubois tricked African Americans into believing that Blacks were not making progress and it was the Republicans fault. For 100 hundred year

Well, I certainly hope this is true....I’d hate for all the faithful to go to hell because they voted for the devil’s advocate Obama....an earthly ObamaPhone, or an EBT card is not worth an eternity in hell.
Sounds good, but I wish I knew what the sandwich boards actually said......
