Published on Jul 31, 2012 by PressTVGlobalNews : A predominately-white church in Mississippi has turned away a black couple, who intended to have their wedding ceremony there, due to their skin color.
The pastor of First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs in Crystal Springs, Mississippi, canceled Charles and Te'Andrea Wilson's planned wedding one day before the ceremony, arguing that the church had never hosted black couples since it opened in 1883.
Pastor Stan Weatherford said some of the white congregation had opposed the wedding of the black couple and threatened to have him fired. This is while Charles and Te'Andrea regularly attended the church on Sundays.
The African-Americans are still falling victim to racism in the United States, despite the appointment of Barack Obama as the president.
