    Freedom House Church did not seem all that free this weekend.

    Makeda Pennycooke, the church’s executive pastor of operations, sent an email to church volunteers asking that “only white people†greet worshippers at church services. The email said that leaders anticipated an increased number of visitors in the coming weeks, and that since “first impressions matter,†the church wants “the best of the best on the front doors.â€

    An outraged church member received the email and sent it to local news station WBTV. The controversy is complicated because Pennycooke is a black woman, while senior pastors Troy and Penny Maxwell are white. Nonetheless, the church’s request was hard to misinterpret. â€We are continuing to work to bring our racial demographic pendulum back to mid-line,†Pennycooke wrote. â€We would rather have less greeters on the front door if it means that the few that we have will represent us the best.â€

    Those racist blacks only want whites to work the shitty jobs. Never trust a black woman named after power tools:

    Fucking racism has sunk to a new low in its meaning... It isn't like she was saying "lets kill all white people". She's saying that she wants the greeters to be white... Wtf... If anything, the newspapers should use the term 'racial profiling' or even 'customer service' since she obviously believes that whites are what their customers want to see... Whatever, but it isn't fucking racism.

    the good thing to come out of this is that the woman in hot water is black. Usually, black on white racism is ignored (or dipshits actually try to argue that blacks cannot be racist) or shuffled Under the rug. At least it's getting reported... It's a step in the right direction to fix racism (which this is not)

    And in a related story, a story about Black churches wanting only black greeters elicited mostly "who gives a shit?" responses from focus groups
