How do you feel about a white person attending an African American church?

How do you feel about a white person (or non-black person of color) attending an African American church? Would they be welcome?

  • I don't have a problem with it at all.

    Sadly, in light of recent events I think that it'd set off some alarms, though. :(

  • Churches welcome all races. Black churches can be a little more entertaining.

  • I don't think they'd have a problem, all the black christians I've ever met were all super friendly and would jump at the chance to have you over for dinner, let alone church :P

  • Growing up many of my friends were black and went to the baptist church not to far from my house

    I didn't want to feel left out so i went by myself a few times
    They were welcoming and didn't really treat my strangely or anything, i was 10 years old

  • If I were a Christian I'd want to go to a black church, they're way more exciting than white churches.

  • I feel that you can't fight exclusion and racism with exclusion and racism. The same reason I disapprove of female only gyms. Not rocket science there.

  • They wouldn't be welcome. My experience has always been negative any time I've tried to be a part of their community. White people aren't welcome, just the way it is.

  • I'm white and I live in a predominant African-American neighbourhood and I am welcome in the local church. I believe they welcome any race because I don't believe there is such thing as 'black churches' as it just happens to be the predominant race living in that area.

  • Segregation is illegal so there are no whites or blacks only churches, at least not ones around legally. Anyway, a person who isn't black would be welcomed into a predominantly black church, most church goers in black churches aren't racist so everyone should be safe.

  • Why would I feel anything about that? I've had it done in my life and they were accepted.

    People are putting too much emphasis on skin color/standing out though I can see where they would. I would be comfortable in a sea of any type of people. The only time that I was uncomfortable was when I was insecure in high school and I was in a sea of stuck up people (yes they were white, but it didn't matter). If they weren't stuck up and repulsive, I would have felt at home.

  • I go to a multicultural church which is where I feel a lot more comfortable but I wouldn't see a problem with it. Now after what has happened people will probably be more skeptical about it.
