An Atlanta Pastor Rejects Kanye's Donation


An Atlanta church has decided to send the money Kanye West donated to them elsewhere after the rapper made some pro-Donald Trump remarks at a "Sunday Service" event in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Atlanta’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Pastor Jamal Bryant explained that Kanye gave a large donation to his ministry. In Bryant's video, he issued a statement saying that he's redirecting Kanye’s contribution to Morris Brown College because of Ye's Trump support.

“To say that you unashamedly support Donald Trump...he called the mother continent of Africa a collection of s-hole nations. Smacking the entire diaspora in the year of the anniversary of the year of the return," Bryant said. "I don’t align with the statements of Kanye West. I don’t endorse it, nor do I subscribe to it. And I am not a runaway slave. To that end, Mr. West made a significant donation to New Birth Cathedral. But I do not want to be guilty of double speech. I met with my team today and the donation that he made to our church, I am now redirecting. I’m going to be giving that donation he gave to Morris Brown College.”
