Pastor Mark Burns brought down the house at the 2016 Republican National Convention (RNC). Powerful and in-your-face with his spiritual message, he gave an exciting, yet very serious performance. The central message Pastor Burns was getting across to the RNC crowd was one of unity. He expressed how Black Lives do Matter, but so do All Lives. The mention of Black Lives Matter got some mixed response from the crowd due to their violent tactics, which he condemned, but his intent was to acknowledge the pain of the black community and propose solutions that will not only help blacks, but everyone as a whole.
