Leftist "pastor" Eric Mason, who over the years has become quite well off by selling books to White Christians, is now demanding "free" college for blacks as "reparations". For 200 years no less.
Philadelphia Pastor ("Dr.") Eric Mason calls for 200 years of free college for black Americans as reparations for slavery
"HBCUs [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] funded for the next 200 years. Next 200 years. And right after that? You ain't get this, did you? Descendants of slaves not paying for college for 200 years," he said. "Nobody. And canceling every black person's student loan debt. And repaying blacks who paid for student loans."
"You ain't get this, did you?" I am somewhat familiar with Eric's work and he didn't talk like a ghetto-dweller back in the day, using atrocious grammar to sound more "real". Now that he is in an "urban" setting he has adopted an urban lingo, like Hillary Clinton at a black church. According to Eric's website, this is apparently "love language"
To be recognized and trusted in neighborhoods like North Philadelphia, we needed to speak the love language of the community effectively.
I guess "love language" is code for "demanding gibs from White Christians to tickle the ears of his congregation".
Michael Corleone has the appropriate response to shake-down artists demanding money.
I might add a more colorful addendum: Eric, go fuck yourself.
What kind of "minister" promotes racial division and demands that people who never owned slaves pay "reparations" to people who never were slaves? What kind of "Christ-centered" ministry that is supposed to be "reaching souls for Jesus" demands that 2/3 of the population of the nation he lives in be forced to pay for something they didn't do?
Religious talk aside, what kind of a man endlessly whines about how unfair life is and insists on taking from the fruit of the labor of others? No kind of man at all. That is how children think.
Eric has degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary but talks like he has an 8th grade inner-city education while he appeals to the worst aspects of human emotion: greed, envy, covetousness and hatred.
If Eric cared about his fellow blacks, he would concentrate on the rampant criminality and the skyrocketing murders in Philadelphia. Instead he appeals to the basest emotions of his congregations.
Some minister of Christ.
