Com and The Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog and Media Network The United Pastors in Mission on Tuesday buried the hatchet with the Cleveland Call and Post, a historical Black newspaper that targets the Black community, seemingly putting to rest a controversy that the mainstream media sought to dub as dividing the Black community.
