Senior Pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, Dr. Jamal Bryant has decided to redirect Kanye West’s donation after hearing Pro-Trump comments from West at a Sunday Service event in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Pastor Jamal Bryant expressed that West donated a large donation to his ministry after his performance there back in September, however, as of recently, Bryant issued a statement saying that he’s redirecting Kanye’s contribution to Morris Brown College because of Ye’s support of Trump.
Below is Bryant’s statement:
“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.”
