Actress, speaker and megachurch Priscilla Shirer went viral last week after a video surfaced of her saying, “I am not a Black woman, I’m a Christian woman who happens to be Black!” She is now apologizing. (Source:

Shirer wrote on her Facebook page, “Within the framework of the entire message I was giving at the time, my only intention was to make the point that no aspect of life should ever define the believer MORE than our relationship w/ Christ.‬ I should have been more clear when I shared those unplanned sentiments a couple years ago.”

She continued, “Lord knows that I’m unbelievably proud to be a black woman. Always have been and always will be. My identification with the African American community – the struggles and the triumphs – is something that I value greatly. Those that know me well, or have followed my ministry over the past 2 decades, know that I would never intentionally do or say anything to distance myself from my heritage. The comments in the video could be viewed negatively out of context & moving forward I will be much more measured & calculated in my words in order to convey my stance with unmistakable accuracy.”

She also added, “It hurts my heart to know that I could have possibly offended some of my African American sisters & brothers. If I did, I hope you’ll receive this sincere apology & clarification in the spirit in which I am posting it. It is an honor to serve all of you – from every culture, background and denomination – in this generation. Pray for me. I’m always growing as I seek to serve the Lord well.”
