Kirk Franklin Vows to Boycott the Dove Awards


Gospel singer Kirk Franklin announces he is boycotting the Dove Awards after they cut the social justice portion of his acceptance speech for the second year in a row...
 
In a video posted online Kirk speaks about the so-called difference between "Christian" and "Gospel" music and the Dove vs the Stellar awards and goes on to explain how he felt moved as a Black man to address political unrest first in 2016 for Philando Castile, a licensed to carry driver who was shot dead by police during a traffic stop for a busted tail night after announcing he was carrying a concealed weapon and most recently for Atatiana Jefferson who was killed in her own home by police who were called for a welfare check because her neighbor noticed her front door was open.

Apparently after The Dove Awards cut his speech in 2016 they promised it would never happen again, but after Kirk spoke out about Atatiana Jefferson this week, that portion was cut once again.

Kirk knew who TBN was when he accepted the first Dove award. And he knew it was a long shot that they'd air that portion of his speech. Not sure what he's hoping this will do. All TBN is gonna do is go back to business as usual and ignore Kirk and anyone else who complains about how they worship God without giving a hoot about black folk.

I'm never here for these false prophets and charlatans. The black church has been the biggest agent in the black communities, see the recent movie called the burden with Forest Whitaker cock eyed ass playing, the usual religious mk ultra mind control benevolent kneegrow who uses love as a "weapon", to teach the racist hateful troglodyte humanity. If you nigga don't get the entire fuck out of here with this bullshit. None of these so called religious kneegrows is to be taken seriously, they sold the black communities out a long time ago. They should all be taken out and shot.
