I know racism when I see it.
Pastor Makeda Pennycooke of a church in North Carolina wanted to present the best face to the public because "first impressions matter". Pennycooke is African American. She asked that her white congregants greet people at the door. That's racism in my book.
"We are continuing to work to bring our racial demographic pendulum back to mid-line," she wrote. "So we would like to ask that only white people be on the front doors."
Carmen Thomas, who has attended and served at the church for the past two years, told WBTV that she was "floored" by the request.
