E. Dewey Smith Jr., senior pastor of The House of Hope Atlanta (Greater Travelers Rest) church in Decatur, Georgia, delivered a wincing takedown of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Monday for calling Black Lives Matter racist.

America's initial documents were racist, the ones that gave a black person three-fifths humanity, they were racist. Jim Crow was racist…," Smith said. more >>
