    What's the deal with blacks and ministers?

    My wife has about 5 black people in her office. 2 of them are ministers.
    I used to manage a call center that was mostly black. 2 of the 4 supervisors were ministers. One of the supervisor's husband was also a minister. About 5 or 6 of the other ladies were ministers.
    When I lived in Indiana, I knew about 10 black people well. 2 of them were ministers.

    It seems like half the black people you meet bring out that they are ministers. Do some of the predominantly black churches have multiple ministers?

    I'm sure it's cultural but they always expect the same respect you give a minister in a church where there is only one minister. When half the church is a minister, it kind of loses some impact, doesn't it? :dontknow:

    Why do white people sit around all day obsessing about black people?

    I know. I didn't want to sound racist but is kind of bothers me sometimes. Like they get extra time off of work to do their minister duties. Sometimes it seems a little like a scam.

    I'm not obsessing, I'm just curious. It's different than my culture and it's natural to be curious. I almost didn't post it because I didn't want to sound like a racist.

    You know a handful of black people, most of whom are from where you used to live or work and you started a thread about them.

    I know a whole shitload of white people and not a single one of them is a minister.

    Also, if I used terms like "everyone" and made a lot of generalized statements I might be guilty of stereotyping. Instead I used specific examples and here you are crucifying me for trying to be open and honest.: pope:

    I don't think anyone really gives a fuck who you know or what they do. This thread is lame. Post a pic of a cheeseburger or some chick's tits or GTFO.
