Excellent article. As an African American living in Maryland, I recently purchased a home in Wilson. I found the article very insightful. I certainly don't think this problem is unique to Wilson. In Maryland we do have many racially diverse Churches but for the most part, Sunday still remains the most segregated day of the week.
I'm excited to read about New Beginnings Community Church. When I arrive in Wilson, I too will be seeking a new Church home. Rev. Campbell can certainly expect a visit from me once my relocation is complete.

You might want to try and have some racial pride and worship in your church!!! You are what you are, learn that and you will be accepted better.
Nobody likes a race jumper, stuffed with religion!

I attend New Beginnings Church (NBCC). I feel
it is a cross section of what heaven will be.

Get used to it everyone and stop using race for an excuse for religion and vice versa. Is everyone against other origins of people too. Get a life and be a leader whoever you are.

Wow,

Such idiocy among the American populations. Race and Religion are the two largest separation tools ever employed, yet; so many succumb to this garbage. Why is it so hard for people to think for themselves and realize at a level below all words there is only being. There is no divided race, these are just classifications created to keep humanity from unity. Stop soaking up opinions you hear and learn things for yourself.

The mixing of races can't get along under lock and key in jail! What in the hell makes you think they can when they are free!!! Seperate is really equal. Be kind, don't mix like dogs and move on!!!!!

I go to church very often and enjoy so much!! However I do not wish for my children to associate with blacks, one on one basis. Then down the road here comes your son or daughter home with a half a... black baby!!! oh how horrible!!!!! That is not fair to the child or familys. Many familys split because of this. I would!!
