An outspoken minister says he has received death threats for criticizing the black community in Ferguson, Mo., that is protesting the shooting death of Michael Brown.

"I am getting death threats, but it's OK. My life is protected by God, so I'm not worried about it. It's part of the territory,'' Johnathan Gentry said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

In a video that quickly went viral, Gentry ranted: "I'm going to tell you what you need to hear as opposed to what you want to hear."

"All we know how to do is blame the police and white folks for our actions. All we know how to do is march and riot and loot. I'm sick of it! I'm sick of it!"

Gentry told host Steve Malzberg that commentators on social media sites were not impressed.

"One guy was like 'convert or die,' one was like 'if you come here, if you show your face in this neighborhood, we're going to put more holes in you than Swiss cheese.' It's a bunch of nonsense," Gentry said.

"All I'm trying to do is help you. All I'm trying to do is help the community.''

Ferguson, a suburb of St. Louis, has been plagued by rioting, looting, and arson since a white police officer fatally shot the unarmed Brown.
