I am not one to make generalizations

But in this case I did.

I think it's safe to guess the ethnic origins of Pastor Elder Emuel. (I spotted this temporary sign when I was down in Texas.)

I am often amazed at the differences between African-American culture and African culture. Many. But there are lots of similarities too! I don't know that any pastors in Kenya are called "Pastor Elder" - but I have seen many doctors called "Professor Doctor".

This sign bears striking similarities to many of the letterheads I receive from random ministries in India, asking for monetary assistance.

If the name were even a touch more Indian, I would have guessed that as the ethnic background.
