According to MLive, Pastor Reginald Flynn has changed his protest to interrupt the Crim Races to a protest and prayer event.  Last week Pastor Reginald Flynn ruffled feathers of many people in the community when news broke that he wanted to interrupt the Crim Race in protest.

The Crim Race has been one of the positive highlighted events in our area and people didn't want the event to be tarnished.  Crim Race coordinators spoke with Pastor Reginald Flynn to figure out why he would schedule a protest to interrupt the positive event.

The protest will be moved to Foss Avenue Baptist Church instead of the Crim Race.  This is a relief to many but still have residents eyebrows raised.  I am relieved to see that the Crim Race will not be interrupted by a protest that has nothing to do with the historic race.

What are your thoughts about the change of heart that Flint Pastor has embraced?

A Flint pastor has moved the date of a protest and prayer event that had been planned for the day of the Crim Festival of Races.

The "Intercessory Prayer Protest & Civil Rights Rally" will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday at Foss Avenue Baptist Church, 1159 E. Foss Ave., where the Rev. Reginald Flynn is pastor.

Last week, Flynn organized the event to protest the former emergency manager's transfer of the city-owned Genesee Towers to a downtown development group for $1 along with a commitment of $750,000 in federal community development grants for the building's demolition.
