Democrats and their foot soldiers on the left insist there is a rot in our country, but the only rot I see is the rot that has festered in the very foundations of the Democratic Party, a party that was built from the ground up on the backs of oppressed blacks!”
         ~ Bishop Aubrey Shines, June 2020

Uncover the racism where it truly lies:
in the heart and history of the Democratic Party


Call For Reparations:
“Divisive, Extreme, Marxist”

Nikole Hannah-Jones and the Left hijack race debate to push wealth redistribution

Washington, DC – Nikole Hannah-Jones, New York Times reporter and the author of “The 1619 Project,” is at it again this morning with a renewed call for reparations to be paid out to African Americans. On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Hannah-Jones insisted we “have to take this seriously.” She also expects people to believe her when she says the damage caused by rioters across America is “not violence.”

“Ms. Hannah-Jones’ demands for reparations would be hilarious if they weren’t so dangerous,” said Bishop Aubrey Shines. Bishop Shines is chairman of the newly formed Conservative Clergy of Color, a coalition of pastors and ministers dedicated to uncovering where the racism in our country truly lies; the foundations of the Democratic Party.

“Liberals and Democrats have wanted to redistribute wealth for years, and now they’re hijacking the conversation on race in a despicable, Marxist attempt to steal money from hard working Americans to line their pockets,” Bishop Shines said. “Raising taxes and distributing this money would be problematic in the best of times, but our economy at the breaking point thanks to coronavirus. This would just bring more chaos and further divide Americans on race. Moreover, what do they hope to accomplish by handing out paychecks for no work to black Americans? I’ll tell you; this is how Democrats keep black Americans under their thumb. For decades poor blacks have been kept on a leash by bloated, failing welfare programs pushed by Democrats. Since slavery isn’t legal anymore and Jim Crow was outlawed, this is how they plan to keep us in line.”

Shaun King goes too far in call to destroy statues of Jesus Christ

Tampa, FL – Bishop Aubrey Shines, chairman of Conservative Clergy of Color, condemned calls from Black Lives Matter Activist Shaun King to tear down statues of Jesus with European facial designs Monday. King tweeted that images of Jesus with Caucasian likenesses “should come down” because they “always have been” a form of white supremacy.

“This is beyond disgusting. This is beyond outrageous. This is an insult of the lowest order to every single Christian living in the United States,” said Bishop Shines. “How dare Mr. King try to paint our Savior into one race and use that as an excuse to deface His image. Does this mean now that every Biblical figure must go too?

Conservative Clergy of Color is a coalition of pastors and ministers who believe that their work supersedes the boundaries of race. They stand for the freedom of religion in American and condemn unequivocally any call to deface religious symbols of any kind. They stand with all people who want solutions, not more division.

“Mr. King’s imbecilic knowledge of this issue is embarrassing,” Bishop Shines said. “If he asks that the Eurocentric depiction of Christ come down, would he be okay if the Afrocentric, or, the Asian centric images also be removed? There’s a reason why there is no physical portrait of the Messiah, because it was never about the pigmentation of individuals who lived in that region during that time the holy Scriptures declare by one blood were all races created. To raise the issue of the degree of melanin in one’s DNA as it relates to Christianity represents the most asinine, idiotic understanding of basic Judeo-Christian orthodoxy.

Washington, DC – Conservative Clergy of Color’s leadership denounced Google this morning in response to the tech company’s deliberate censorship of The Federalist and ZeroHedge. Google banned both sites from using monetized ads because Google, in its own words, has “strict publisher policies that govern the content ads can run on and explicitly prohibit derogatory content that promotes hatred, intolerance, violence or discrimination based on race from monetizing,”

The leaders of Conservative Clergy of Color –Bishop Aubrey Shines, Rev. Derek McCoy, Rev. MJ Reid, and Pastor Francisco Vega – issued a statement rebuking Google’s discriminatory policies against conservatives and called for immediate change.

The full statement is below:

“As pastors and leaders in our communities, we are appalled by the blatant bigotry and bias against conservative and Christian voices in our country today. We are sickened by the dirty trick Google played against two conservative websites over a simple difference of opinion. We have each experienced such shameful censorship in the form of algorithms that limit our outreach. We have each been put into Facebook or Twitter jail because our words displeased the puppet masters who control the narrative in this country. As Christian ministers and conservatives, we have each personally felt the rebuff of the entities who have bought off politicians, ‘reporters,’ and activists in our country.

Mark us, there is a silent war being waged against diversity of opinion in America, and it’s now come to the doorsteps of ZeroHedge and the Federalist. What we’re seeing today is no different than the methods used by tin pot dictators who suppress dissent and maintain absolute control over their people. One of the greatest things about America is the freedom of speech and thought guaranteed by our Constitution; unfortunately, our country is now under siege by those who would rip this God-given right away from us.

We stand against the radical Left thought police. We stand against tech totalitarianism. We stand against corporate America bowing to the demands of “social justice warriors.” And we call for immediate reform to ensure ALL voices are heard across this great country.”

Conservative Clergy of Color will uncover the racism where it truly lies,
in the heart and history of the Democratic Party.

Washington, DC – Bishop Aubrey Shines, founder of Glory to Glory Ministries and prominent leader in the African American community, announced Monday the launch of “Conservative Clergy of Color,” a new coalition of voices dedicated to changing the American debate on race. The group will focus on reshaping the idea of systemic racism by focusing on where it is most rampant; the foundations of the Democratic Party.

“For far too long now the Democrats and their foot soldiers on the left have dominated the dialogue on race in this country,” Bishop Shines declared. “They insist there is a rot in our country, but the only rot I see is the rot that has festered in the very foundations of the Democratic Party, a party that was built from the ground up on the backs of oppressed blacks!”

In an op-ed published Monday, Bishop Shines pointed to numerous examples throughout American history of racism from Democrats, from their refusal to include anti-lynching in their platform during the early 20th century, to FDR preventing Jews fleeing the Holocaust from entering the U.S., to the resistance by Congressional Democrats to the Civil Rights movement in the 1950’s, and to the appropriation of the traditional Kente cloth by members of the Democratic leadership last week.

Conservative Clergy of Color’s mission is to shine the light of truth on every single instance of racism from Democrats.

“We will not rest until truth prevails over hypocrisy,” Bishop Shines said. “Until Democrats stop pointing fingers at anyone who disagrees with them and take a good long look in the mirror, we will not rest.”

From Christ to Emancipation, the Mob Is Determined to Erase History

Originally appeared at
July 08, 2020

We’ve all heard the phrase, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.” But, as I’ve watched the unrest that continues to play out in our cities, I think it’s safe to say that the “activists” who have taken over left the good intentions behind some time ago.

First, they came for only the Confederate statues. Then they came for our Founding Fathers, and now they’re coming after President Lincoln, General Grant and even our Savior Jesus Christ.

In case you don’t know what I’m referring to, last month Shaun King, who is a prominent voice in the Left’s Woke class, called for the removal of any statues of Christ with European features because, apparently, those too are now a symbol of white supremacy.

As a minister, it pains me to see such an asinine and narrow view of the Messiah. Not only is it shortsighted, but Mr. King is missing the entire point of Christ. What he may or may not have looked like doesn’t matter, but his message about love and reconciliation with others does.

Christ walked the earth 2,000 years ago. None of us can ever know what the Savior actually looked like. Logically, it’s reasonable that different cultures would depict Him in a way they would know. White Europeans aren’t any guiltier for depicting Jesus as a white European in Renaissance art than Africans or Asians are for portraying Him as an African or an Asian in their artwork. Moreover, the Messiah’s message has nothing to do with the pigmentation of one’s skin. In His time on earth, Jesus extended God’s love to both Jews and Gentiles. Samaritans, Romans, it didn’t matter.

Furthermore, what Mr. King suggests is the next step on an already dangerous path. Statues of Christ are found on the grounds of churches, and churches are separate entities from the government (look it up, it’s in the Constitution). This means Mr. King wants his Antifa friends to trespass on private property to destroy other private property. I would be shocked, but these people see themselves as revolutionaries; they live by their own rules, and no amount of reasonable discourse will stop them.

And if statues of Christ that look too white have to come down, how long will it be before statues of Abraham, Moses or Jacob have to come down if they look too white? Does this mean Michelangelo’s historic sculpture of King David needs to be destroyed because it looks too white? How long will it be before any white statues come down, regardless of whether or not the person in question enforced white supremacy?

I fear that last question is already being answered. We’ve already had a statue of General Grant ripped down. Didn’t he bring an end to the Civil War by forcing Robert E. Lee to surrender? He, if anyone, should have a thousand statues up for every one Confederate statue; Grant ended the war and saved the Union. But because he is a 19th-century white man with a beard in a military uniform, he must come down! So say the misguided who ignore their own history.

Christians Refute Activist Calling For Dismantling ‘White’ Jesus Images

A controversial Black Lives Matter activist says he’s received death threats after calling on churches to take down images of Jesus, the Holy Family, and the apostles because they are “a form of white supremacy”.

Many are refuting Shaun King’s Twitter statements this week. Recent efforts to bring down statues of confederate figures and founding fathers isn’t enough. King says all ‘white’ depictions of Jesus are racist. Bishop Aubrey Shines, chairman of Conservative Clergy of Color, says the comments go against the Christian message.

“It is probably one of the most imbecilic positions any individual could ever take. [Christianity] was never about one’s ethnicity, it was about God reconciling man back to Himself, and it was through a sacrifice,” Shines said.

Shines notes the rich tradition of Christian art over the last two thousand years made by people of different races and ethnicities.

Reparations? Democrats should be the ones to pay

Originally appeared at

If Democrats are so fond of reparations for slavery, then they should pay for it themselves instead of forcing it on the American taxpayer.


BISHOP AUBREY SHINES: Democrats Demand Reparations For Slavery. Fine Then, Let Them Be The Ones To Pay

Originally appeared at
June 23, 2020

One of the words Democrats and leftists are fond of throwing around these days is “reparations,” specifically the idea of compensation and damages paid by the U.S. government to the descendants of slaves (by way of higher taxes, of course). It’s an idea that has gained more popularity in the last few years, and in the wake of George Floyd’s tragic death Americans have been hearing renewed calls for the idea.

Now, setting aside the impractical logistics of how you would pay reparations and how it would needlessly reopen ancient wounds, I believe our Democratic friends may actually be onto something here. If they continue gnashing their teeth and insist that reparations must be divvied out, I say let them go for it. If Democrats really, really want to compensate the descendants of slaves, why don’t they cut out the middleman and do it themselves?

It would be appropriate given the long, nasty history of systemic racism that’s woven into the Democratic Party’s story like a weed. I wrote another piece about this earlier this month, but in case you missed it, systemic racism is rampant in the Democratic Party and has been since the days before the Civil War.

It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to shut her mouth and open her wallet. She has millions, ill gotten, and she owes African Americans back pay. Same with Chuck Schumer. Pay up, Chuck! And let’s not forget Joe Biden, the master of race baiting. Joe, time to put your money where your silly mouth is.

It was the Democrats who thought the South should secede in 1860. Democrats used the Ku Klux Klan as enforcers keep the yoke of oppression on blacks even after slavery had been abolished. Democratic politicians passed law after law in the South to keep blacks from exercising their right to vote. Woodrow Wilson, a Democratic president, gave the racist film Birth of a Nation a platform in the White House. Democratic mayors and city officials have done nothing to lift inner city blacks out of poverty for decades, instead keeping themselves and their corrupt city governments in power.

Democrats hate school choice and have forced poor blacks to remain locked in the failing public school system for generations. Young blacks are stuck in schools where the only solutions are suspensions that put a temporary Band-Aid on the struggles black children face and don’t actually address their underlying issues. If things were different, we might see more black children grow into capable adults who have faced their demons instead of succumbing to them. But who cares as long as it keeps corrupt teachers unions fat and happy?

Democrats hate individualism and entrepreneurship, and so they have propped up a failing welfare system that removes any incentive for poor black families to find meaningful work or keep their children in school. Why get a job or be financially responsible when every month there’s a check in the mail from the bloated government? Never mind that it only feeds this vicious cycle, keeps black children from getting real jobs and disrupts the already fragile family units in black communities. Never mind that it only feeds the school to prison pipelines many young blacks face. Speaking of prison, Democrats had eight years under Barack Obama to reform the prison system that incarcerates hundreds of thousands of blacks for nonviolent offenses, but they never bothered to address the issue.

Every election year, Democrats expect blacks to line up like cattle and vote to keep them in office. They take us for granted, they expect us to obey them without question like sheep. Because, like their slave owning forebears, the Democrats only care about blacks so long as blacks are useful to them! They take so much for granted that they believe we’ll just forget that the current Democrat governor of Virginia wore blackface in graduate school (or a Klansman hood, it’s really hard to tell). So, it seems only fair to me as an African American that Democrats start paying out the reparations they love to talk about so much.

And while we’re on the subject, I also think it’s fair and reasonable that Democrats pay reparations to the descendants of Union soldiers. We love to talk about ending slavery, but we always leave out the men who did most of the leg work.

After all it was the soldiers who in many cases actually freed slaves as they marched across the territories of the Confederacy. It was these brave men who fought, bled and died to uphold and preserve our Union. Without them, our country might not even be a country, and it certainly wouldn’t be a country where blacks can eat out, go to school, vote and live freely.

It doesn’t seem like a big ask for a national party with a fundraising war machine that routinely spends millions each election cycle.

I would hope the party of America’s first black president would be honored to send some checks to these folks I’ve mentioned. Surely the rich, white liberals who live on the coasts and love posturing to make themselves feel less guilty would be privileged to pitch in to a reparations fund organized by the Democratic Party.

As they so often do, liberals speak before they think. If they thought a little more, they’d remember the old maxim, “If you want something done, do it yourself.” But then, stopping and thinking would probably be too big of an ask for them.

Conservative Clergy of Color Rips Google Over ‘Deliberate Censorship’ of Conservatives

Originally appeared at
June 17, 2020

The Conservative Clergy of Color took Google to task in a statement slamming the Internet giant over its “deliberate censorship” of conservatives.

“As pastors and leaders in our communities, we are appalled by the blatant bigotry and bias against conservative and Christian voices in our country today. We are sickened by the dirty trick Google played against two conservative websites over a simple difference of opinion,” Conservative Clergy of Color leaders, which include Bishop Aubrey Shines, Rev. Derek McCoy, Rev. MJ Reid, and Pastor Francisco Vega, said in a statement.

“We have each experienced such shameful censorship in the form of algorithms that limit our outreach. We have each been put into Facebook or Twitter jail because our words displeased the puppet masters who control the narrative in this country. As Christian ministers and conservatives, we have each personally felt the rebuff of the entities who have bought off politicians, ‘reporters,’ and activists in our country,” the statement continued.

As Breitbart News reported, the comment section content on center-right website The Federalist and libertarian website ZeroHedge were purportedly in violation of Google’s advertising platform terms of service. A Google spokesperson said on Tuesday that “The Federalist is not currently demonetized. We do have strict publisher policies that govern the content ads can run on, which includes comments on the site. This is a longstanding policy.”

As a means to remain part of Google’s ad platform, the Federalist temporarily removed its comment section. The story was first reported by NBC News reporter Adele-Momoko Fraser, who initially said the story came thanks to collaboration between NBC News’ “Verification Unit” and a left-wing group called the Center for Countering Digital Hate. The Center for Countering Digital Hate pushes digital advertisers to financially blacklist conservatives websites. Breitbart News is among those being target by that group. Meanwhile, Momoko Fraser has walked back her initial claim of collaborating with the Center for Countering Digital Hate.

Bishop Aubrey Shines Explains Democrats’ History of Systemic Racism

Bishop Aubrey Shines, founder and pastor of G2G Ministries in Tampa Bay, Florida, and founder of Conservative Clergy of Color, discussed left-wing and Democrat paternalism towards blacks on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

Shines linked the Democrat Party to “systemic racism” in a column published at the Washington Times. He wrote:

There’s plenty of systemic racism in our country; it’s all wrapped up in the history of the Democratic Party. The rot goes deep, back to the post-Civil War era. Former slaves and their children were forced for decades to endure the cruel, wretched Jim Crow laws that kept them from advancing in the South. And who was all too happy to keep those laws in place? The Democrats.

Shines said, “This is the mindset of the Democratic Party, and that is: Blacks are victims, [and] white liberals are there to rescue them. After all, they can’t stand on their own, but yet there’s no data in history that actually implies that.”

Of course there is systemic racism in America and it’s in the Democratic Party

by Bishop Aubrey Shines

These past couple of weeks have been some of the saddest I’ve seen in my lifetime as an African-American. It began with the tragic, needless, death of George Floyd, but then quickly escalated into some of the most vicious, violent rioting our country has seen in decades.

The Democratic Party, true to form, never lets a crisis go to waste. It has seized on what should be a time of healing and instead made the conversation more divisive by lecturing us all about how systemic racism is supposedly rampant in the United States. The great irony here is that yes, there’s plenty of systemic racism in our country; it’s all wrapped up in the history of the Democratic Party.

The rot goes deep, back to the post-Civil War era. Former slaves and their children were forced for decades to endure the cruel, wretched Jim Crow laws that kept them from advancing in the South. And who was all too happy to keep those laws in place? The Democrats.

The Republican Party had planks in its party platforms addressing the rights of African-Americans in the early 20th century. The Democrats, meanwhile, used the KKK as their stormtroopers, lynching and terrorizing blacks in the South beginning just after the Civil War and continued this practice for a century.

As early as 1888, the Republican platform included a plank affirming the “sovereign right of every lawful citizen, rich or poor, native or foreign born, white or black, to cast one free ballot in public elections, and to have that ballot duly counted.”

In 1892, the Republican platform specifically condemned the “inhuman outrages perpetrated upon American citizens for political reasons in certain Southern States of the Union.” The Democrats, those paragons of virtue, refused to include anti-lynching planks or planks addressing racial rights in their platform for all of the early 20th century.

This was the era of Woodrow Wilson, a Democratic president who modern Democrats like to conveniently forget re-segregated different federal government agencies during his presidency. There was also a little racist movie called “Birth of a Nation.” Wilson loved it so much he thought it would be a great idea to screen it at the White House and viewed the film multiple times.

A few years later, Wilson’s fellow Democrat and President Franklin Roosevelt was forward-thinking and progressive enough to express his distaste for Asian immigrants, and said that immigrants in general had brought “congestion and racial prejudices to our large cities.” He would later deny entry into the U.S. to Jews who fled from Nazi-controlled Europe during Hitler’s purges. Years earlier, while on the Harvard Board of Overseers, Roosevelt helped impose a limit on the number of Jewish students allowed admittance to the university.

And of course, Roosevelt forced some 175,000 Japanese-Americans into camps throughout the desert Southwest during World War II, trampling all over their constitutional rights just because they looked different.

One of Roosevelt’s staunchest supporters was U.S. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, who was nominated to the high court in 1937 by Roosevelt. FDR’s pal Justice Black was also, for what it’s worth, a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

During the 1950s and the beginning of the Civil Rights era, Virginia Democratic Sen. Harry Byrd was so vehemently against the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision that he took the time to write a “Southern Manifesto” that opposed desegregation in American schools.

The latter half of the 20th century brought plenty more of its share of racist Democratic politicians.

Lyndon Johnson, who now is lauded as a hero for passing the Civil Rights Act, was fond of using the N-word behind closed doors and even changed his pronunciation based on regional dialect. Prior to 1964, Johnson was a stalwart against civil rights legislation in Congress and was a leader in the massive Southern Resistance movement of Southern states that opposed integration in the 1950s.

Jimmy Carter, who loved falsely branding anyone who disagreed with him a racist, such as Ronald Reagan, supported legislation in the Georgia State Senate that would have eviscerated the Civil Rights Act in the early 1960s as well as housing rights. And in 1976, Mr. Carter stayed with the Plains Baptist Church even as it voted against allowing blacks to join.

Even in the modern era, when we’re all supposed to be above such evilness, Democrats are still stuck in their old ways. Nothing has changed for the Democratic Party.

Gov. Ralph Northam, Virginia Democrat, wore blackface while in grad school in the 1980s. Or it might have been a KKK hood. We’re still not sure which. Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat, also has a racist past. Why aren’t they being protested? Just this week, the congressional Democratic leadership committed the worst kind of faux pas by posing in traditional Kente cloth in an attempt to out-woke the virtue signaling rioters in our streets. Black leaders were not impressed.

Systemic racism is indeed a vile problem, one that must be addressed immediately. When Democrats stop pointing fingers and look in the mirror, we can begin the conversation about where the systemic racism truly lies.
