TD Jakes, lead pastor at the Potter’s House in Dallas, TX is happy to make plans to send his son to college.  But although he and his son Dexter are making plans, Jakes is aware that many other families do not have that luxury.

Jakes went on to say that his heart goes out to Michael Brown’s mother and father, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr. because they had made similar plans for their 18-year-old son before he was gunned down by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer.

Bishop Jakes believes that every black parent is worried that they will see their child’s details on crime scene photos, instead of putting up pictures of their achievements in college. He adds that this is especially so in Ferguson, because black teens are more frequently stopped and searched by police officers than their white counterparts.
