    Seating was not an issue during Hillary Clinton’s appearance at a black church in Charlotte, North Carolina on Sunday morning. Clinton hammered on themes of “systemic racism,” white privilege and police brutality to the overwhelmingly black audience in an apparent effort to shore up that sector of support. But as video shows, there apparently wasn’t much clamoring to hear her speak. Here’s a shot as the camera panned out to show the congregants. Except for the first couple rows, the pews were sparsely filled.

It will air on Fox News Channel program "Hannity" on Wednesday night. The church’s pastor, Dr. Darrell Scott, said the event was moved to Cleveland from Columbus on Sunday to provide adequate space for the taping of the Fox News town hall.

    As an old proverb on foreign policy goes, "Only Nixon could go to China." But, after his meeting with an African-American evangelical congregation on Saturday, someday, they might make a similar statement about race relations: "Only Trump could go to Detroit." Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump absolutely stunned the political world with a speech that went directly to the heart of his efforts to reach out to African-American voters. And afterward, a number of African-American faith leaders said they were swayed by his comments. "For centuries, the African-American church has been the conscience of our country," he said.

    Ben Carson, an adviser to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, said Sunday that African-American voters should back the GOP nominee as an agent of change after decades of inner-city failure under Democratic governance. Mr. Trump, trying to court an African-American populace that has largely rejected the GOP contender so far, on Saturday visited a black church and called for “a civil-rights agenda for our time.’’ He cited discrimination and disparities in education, employment and public safety for African-Americans. Mr. Carson said the GOP candidate offered black voters “an alternative to promises (by Democrats) that are not kept.”

Bishop Wayne T.

Trump had invited some 25 pastors — three of them, including Scott and his wife, Belinda, were black — to Trump Tower for an announcement: He was considering running for president, and he asked the assembled guests to pray that God would point him in the right direction.
