  1. Please forgive me Mr. Jakes, your solutions do not touch the underbelly of our problems. Tweet this person and that person…to make a difference.

    "They have treated superficially the [bloody] broken wound of My people…"  Jeremiah 6:14

    Nothing, absolutely nothing will change until black men who have the mental and. financial resources actually put in massive amounts of their time and resources to help black young men become men. Your talking and preaching and teaching do nothing.  Just think. All your teaching. What has it actually done to CHANGE, actually change what is on the streets? You have sons. It takes action. Action.

    Black men coming along side young black men to walk with them through their lives to be WITH them as they get through school, be WITH them as they apply for jobs and be WITH them to help them to walk WITH them, basically hold their hands as your take them to register for junior college. Provide the time to help them with homework, and be there when they are struggling through their classes to see them through until they finish.

    Talk, talk, talk. Empty talk. What exactly has your words here to help

    It seems for all of Oprah's billions – what has she done for Chicago where she lived for so many years? Set up schools in Africa. Oprah could have set up with her financial resources, help centers and hired a fleet of social workers and teachers and evening programs to help black youth get their GED's, guide them to junior college, trade schools, etc.

    What is a possible solution?
    Hire 3 black men who have the mental and psychological capacity to father and mentor, give them a salary for a year. Purchase a house, place in that house those three black men 6 black men who need help. The job description of those 3 black men is to father and mentor those 6 black men to get through high school to college. Now. This would be REAL HELP.

    All your talking means nothing, if, it does not actually help a black youth to become a black man – filled with the potential to be employed, to become a husband and a father.

  2. Skin color, is a stumbling stone for the carnally minded. . . God is color blind. . He looks at the hearts of men. . . Yes Pastor Jakes, it is about right and wrong. . . That cop kneeling on any persons neck, should provoke outrage ! If it was a white man, would you have the same voice as you do now ? Do you stand against black on black murder ? The God of this world, twists the minds of people, and divides us ! George did not deserve that behavior. . . Nor does anyone. .regardless of skin color. . . It was a crime against humanity ! Satan's narrative will always divide. . . Protest is legal. . . Rioting is not. . .Again, right and wrong. . . Sympathy is for Georges family, but He himself, lived a very hard life, on the edge. . .

  3. Okay the black leaders are talking….now what is next. Sometimes leadership has got to do more than talk. Talk is cheap it doesn't cost nothing to talk. How many more have to be murdered before a change takes place. God is tired of the hypocrisy from the church! Enough is Enough!!! God have mercy on us!

  4. TD Jakes …. You are a massive part of the problem!¬ for many years filling your pockets with money and fame and done absolutely nothing concrete to help BLACK people in need back in the neighbourhoods where the NEED is real. I know simple people, community volunteers doing a real difference in peoples life BY THEMSELVES, without the money or resources that you have. … You need to be true to yourself and recognise that you have failed as a minister and leader. God is going to ask you for accounts of everything that you said and did when you meet Him. … You are a good talker but terrible at doing what you say. .. You put yourself beside a corrupted organization as BLM you are completely LOST!…. Your Job should be only to make a difference whit the WORD, with |the GOSPEL!! May God have mercy on you! .
    I'll remind you what happened after the holy spirit fell upon the church. (ACT 4:44,45,46)

    44. All the believers were together and had everything in common.
    45. Selling their possessions and goods, they shared with anyone who was in need.
    46. With one accord they continued to meet daily in the temple courts and to break bread from house to house, sharing their meals with gladness and sincerity of heart.


  5. For me, white, black, brown… all.. . stop breaking the law so the law can't have a reason to pursue you. How about whites who suffer injustice at the hands of police? When England makes reparations to me and my ancestors I will be able to make them to anyone who can prove I owe them. The entire thing is out of control and of the devil. Those officers deserve their day in court so they can explain WHY they murdered a PERSON ! They are on sinking sand…

  6. wondering what your thoughts are on Cardi B WAP?…certainly havent heard you denounce the filth they fill up children with in the Black Rap industry…would have thought after your daughter got pregnant at 13 you might have something to say about filth in music?…society isnt all cops fault…and YOU can change the black rap industry thomas

  7. It is horrible to watch, do we ignore fentinal if where talking about truth,and grace,someone sold it to him,feel for the man who reported him, with forged money he didnt want that just trying to run a business fed up of crime, i hav seen a vid of him swallowing stuff ,we need to discuss and let the courts decde, if there not currupt, in which case nothing will change
