The African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church Takes A Stand
Against The Racist Rhetoric and Social Policies Of the Trump Administration

COB-Logo-2Since its founding, the AME Church has consistently opposed the racist rhetoric and social policies of the Trump Administration. We have issued formal statements, published editorials, encouraged our members to engage with ecumenical partners, and visit public officials to advocate for all of God's people.

When the Trump Administration announced
that the temporary protective status (TPS)
granted to Haiti, El Salvador and Nicaragua
would be revoked in 2019, we urged our
church leaders, members, and friends to
organize against this racist immigration
policy. While it took the US President 15
hours to deny his alleged “s**thole remarks”,
there is no denial of his previous statements
maligning Mexicans as "rapists", Haitians
carrying "AIDS", Nigerians living in "huts".
We continue to abhor and be alarmed by the
bigoted rhetoric of a US President that is only outdone by his immigration policies which can be construed as a war on people of color.
 
Recognizing that the President claims he did not use profanity, US Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), asserts that the President made the “vile” and “hateful” remarks. The Council of Bishops of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and the Social Action Commission of our Church demand
not only a public apology but inclusive and “just” social and immigration policies. We stand with the public summoning of US diplomats by the countries which were slandered by the President.
 
Because, in 1787 and 1816, our founders chose to proudly affirm the important role of Africa in world history and culture we are horrified that the President of the United States continues to denigrate people of African, Asian and Latin American descent throughout the world. We would remind this President that it was enslaved Africans, poor Chinese people, and oppressed Latinos
whose genius built the wealth of the United States. We would remind him that immigrants from the maligned countries come with a high level of education and a work ethic can only make the US greater.  Continue here to read more.
