When preachers refuse to stand up for righteousness against injustce all people suffer. Black preachers during the time of slavery realized that many White pastors and White Christians were practicing legalized White supremacy against them not only on the plantation but also within the church itself. In protest, the Black clergy that managed to gain their freedom by "various" means then formed their own Black congregations and established their own Black churches to the escape the evil practice of faith-based White supremacy in the house of "The Lord."
Here is the problem. The White church and denomination was already rooted in a version of the Bible where the Black presence in the Bible had been removed, discarded, and then stepped on just as Black folk were treated as less-than-human on the plantation. Therefore, when the slave preacher, who was mostly illiterate, broke away from the White denomination to start his own church, the uneducated slave could only continue and mimic what he had so long been accustomed—a version of the Bible that had rejected the Black presence and had glorified an all White biblical presence that was not there at the beginning. The ex-slave preacher did the best he could with what little he had. Therefore, the former slave continued his master’s same old denomination, customs, and traditions that kicked the Black presence out of the very Bible where Black tribes are the main characters. Poor thing knew no better.
As I close, I say that to say this: during slavery at least the half-taught Black preacher had the courage to stand up against legalized White supremacy to form his own church. It was his limited education, resources, and lack of books that gave him an excuse for not informing his people that they were in the Bible. Today’s Black preachers, however, cannot claim such a luxury. Many Black preachers of today have unlimited access to knowledge—seminaries, college degrees, libraries, book stores, internet, etc. Black churches are no longer under legalized White supremacy. So, why are Black preachers still refusing to stand up against White supremacy within the church body to tell the truth about the Black presence in the Bible?
Is it the fear of losing money that keeps them silent? Holla back.

I think most preachers are afraid of losing the house and car and the BIG flat screen tv they have instead of preching the truth. They would rather preach a lie without the black presents in the bible. My people are lost without a shepard that wont lead them to the wolfe. Keep up the good work.

This answer is in response to the question-" Why Black Preachers are afraid to preach about the Black Savior"

The preachers failed to realize that those dead presidents in the denomination of: one, five, ten and one hundred dollars are merely instruments to render unto Caesar, because Caesar says " if you don't bless me with cash" I will bless you by cutting off your lights, your gas and your telephone." So these pastors preach on "bringing the harvest into the barns" yet when a member has a need, the benevolent fund or piggy bank is empty. Something is wrong with this picture. These are the same preachers who say the G-word. If G-word be for us than who can be against us? The G-word must against these preachers too. They are too deaf, dumb and blind to realize it. Talk about the blind misleading the blind. They are not feeding the flock, they are fleecing the flock.

The history of the black people is in the bible,as with all the races.The blacks just had to be awaken to it.For example,Abraham frist born was Ishmale and not Isaac.No matter what man say, God is what happens.Thats the true spirit.God told Abraham to leave his family in Ur and go into Canaan.But Abraham married his sister and took his whole family with him,thinking that he could choose the woman that would have his first born son.But Sarah was barren until after Ishmael was born.No matter what man say or want, God is what happens.That is what the Truth is. That is who God is.He is what happens and not what is said.When we read the bible we need to compare what is said by what is done to find the truth.The bible says that Isaac was Abraham's only son,but the spirit says thats not true,because we know he was also the father of Ishmael.By knowing this it clears up where the twenty four elders come from.Twelve from Ishmael,and twelve from Jacob.The reason it took so long for Abraham to have twelve elders by his Wife Sarah,is because Abraham was trying to make sure that his seed by Sarah would be blessed,and he got in the way of God's plan.Sarah wanted her child to be the only heir.So she made Abraham cast out Ishmael.What did Jesus say about the children of the married wife? What did he say about all of those that came before him being thieves and robbers? why do you think God choose not to let Jesus be born of the married women? Why do you think that God told the serpent that he would put enmity between him and the woman,and between his seed and her seed.The serpent seed is the seed of the married woman.The woman seed is the seed of the unmarried woman.The married woman is the woman that sats on the beast and the whole world drinks out of her cup.She thinks that her childrens are the chosen children of God.But what did Jesus tell them? That they were from beneath, and he was from above.These people have deceived the whole world.The children that are not claimed by any race of people and are called black are the true children of God.
