Blake of the Church of God in Christ in Los Angeles, have issued an open letter to black leaders urging them to address the AIDS crisis in Africa. "What verdict will our descendants render upon their ancestors who stood silently as a generation of African children were reduced to a biological underclass by this sexual holocaust?" said the letter, dated Tuesday.
