I HAVE ATTENDED A BLACK CHURCH BEFORE AND REALLY ENJOYED IT. I WAS WONDERING IF THERE WAS ONE IN TOWN. I MIGHT START GOING AGAIN IF THERE IS.

I've noticed several times at Wal-Mart that there have been some black kids asking for donations or selling candy for their church to send kids to church camp. I did not recognize the church's name and don't think that it was even in Paragould. Maybe they were from Kennett or Jonesboro.

Yes, I agree. You can't get in the doors for people begging for money. Money don't grow on trees. You have to work and earn it.

All ducks, geese, etc., fly in the same formation regardless of color. Even dumb animals have sense enough to know that color is not a choice. Ignorance, however, is a choice. Educate yourself. Think. The come tell me why you are white and what you had to do with it.

Yeah, tell that to the Salvation Army and Mission Outreach... Right to their faces... Make sure you do it really loudly, with a large group of people standing around...

See how popular you are after that.

Are you saying that because they aren't from this area, or because they're black?

My guess is, if it were a couple of white kids collecting money for a charity, no matter what it was, you'd have zero problem with it.

How in the Hell did you get RACISM out of what I posted? All I was trying to say is for people need to ask for their donations in their own neighborhood.

That's what I'm thinking. Their own communities need to help support them and let the people of Paragould support it's residents. I didn't mean anything racial when I posted this. I was just making an observation that I didn't think we had a black church in Paragould and definitely didn't recognize the church's name as being in Paragould. And yes, we do have several blacks that attend church where I attend services in Paragould.

The church I attend is caucation but when the nursing home there had African Americans they came there. The last one had to move to Paragould and we miss him so much he was very informative in class and I get to see him once in a while here in Paragould. If he sees this post Merry Christmas Ben, we miss you. All God's children are welcome at Marmaduke 1st General Baptist.
