While speaking at the podium, Bloomberg met some resistance as several church members turned their backs on Bloomberg during his speech. In recent weeks Bloomberg has been getting slammed for his stop and frisk policy, which had a huge effect on people of color while he was the mayor of New York City.
When the pastor Rev. Leodis Strong introduced Bloomberg to the podium, he told his congregants Bloomberg was not initially open to speaking to at the church, quoting Bloomberg as saying, “I’ve got to beat Donald Trump, I don’t have time to go to Brown Chapel.”
Looks like Bloomberg changed his mind after he, and other Democratic candidates, got smashed by Biden in the South Carolina primary.
