Black theology seems to be known and used by everyone, except, the black preacher. Ironically, while black theology theoretically relies heavily upon expressions of the people, such as freedom and sorrow songs and sermons, the more academic elites of black theology seem to have little respect for the modern black church. Black churches that have succeeded in white-dominated society neglect blacks. Theologians like Minister Malcom X,  J. Deotis Roberts, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Gayraud Wilmore, and James Henry Harris request a nexus between theology and ministry, the relationship remains undeveloped. Black folk expect preachers to reassure them of God’s power, not to question or doubt it. Many religious-blacks practice a, very, backwards understanding of their theology. This is a horrible, costly mistake. Instead of demanding that their pastors leave the pulpit of complacency to engage the pavement of progress. They expect the pastor to help them cope with joblessness, poverty and discrimination by preaching their despair into hope. Black theology provides the content and method for changing the social, economic and political conditions for blacks.   Dr MauricelmLei Millere
