Do you like this story?

Just because

  • I’m glad to contribute to the destruction of Obama’s chances for election
  • Wright’s an attention whore
  • Wright’s bringing Obama’s campaign to their knees
  • Wright’s breaking it down for all of us with “white goggles”
  • this is more content fodder for the blogs and talk radio

I’ve posted the speech by Jeremiah Wright at the NAACP. (Thanks to HipHopMusic for the video)

    Clearly you and I are not watching the same speech. I thought it was an eloquent, passionate, and entertaining speech that gives the general population a little taste of the black church experience.

    I suggest you take another listen. But before doing so, disarm yourself and listen with an open and objective mind because he makes some great points.

    Ummm,

    I am latino, does that mean I am wearing brown goggles???? :P

    The thing that I find so repulsive about your comments, which are shared by many in the black community, is that somehow the concepts pushed forth within black churches is some kind of illusory or abstract concept that no one else has a right to understand or admonish. The latter will only get you accusations of racism.

    This is no different than the “freedom fighters” that shoot their guns from the mosques, and when you return fire they scream bloody murder. Cowards such as yourself hide behind the veil of alternative faith and assume that any opposition is just a “lack of perspective”.

    And then you have the audacity to use the word objective while referencing Wright? Wright is far from objective. Many of his claims and beliefs are so contrived that they could be labeled a “tall tale”…even then that would give it too much credence, because at least the tall tales were used for entertainment. Wright certainly is entertaining, in a caricature sort of way.

    This man is no Martin Luther King – Mr. King was a real Reverend, and Mr. King said God Bless America – not God Damn America.

    Mr. Wright says he is not divisive, but he’s divided himself from Americans who love this country and pray to God for Him to bless America from Americans who hate America and pray to God for Him to Damn America.

    I had to heck it out for myself… the NAACP speech, the Press Club speech… all. Oh My! How the media, and too many Americans, love an out-of-context quote! When taken in context and combined with the historical record, Rev. Wright is only guilty of reporting the news. People living in the protected world of majority-America seemingly cal lack the practical experience to accept this truth. Another possibility is this truth is just too ugly to admit; admission might cause guilt and/or a compelling reason to change the way things are.

    I am an ethnic black/white mix, 43 year old mother of two. I am educated and CEO of a thriving company. I am fiscally conservative yet liberal on most social issues. My best friend is a white male, hard core republican. I am so sure of Rev. Wright’s accurate description of life for Black America, I would back him publicly even if I was being pursued by torch carrying Rush Limbaugh and all of his ideological friends.

    Laurie,

    So are you saying you agree with Wright, that you believe the US Government created AIDS to kill black people? If so, please back it up then with FACTS, instead of rhetoric about your ethnic background, job description and political leanings.

    What about the truth in Africa, where black men rape black women and then insert the barrel of a gun into the girl’s vagina and pull the trigger? Is that also the fault of the US Government?

    What about the black muslims in Sudan who, having run our of black Christians, are now slaughtering black muslims in Darfur? Is that the fault of the US Government? Or is it chickens coming home to roost?

    I won’t touch the drug topic, because that is a choice stupid people make, using drugs to get high. If you choose to abuse them and self destruct, then I am going to get out of your way and let you do it.

    Admission causing guilt? How is Wright saying “God Damn America!” going to change anything? Oh wait, it has. Obama has now disowned his “crazy uncle”, and millions of Americans who love THEIR country are infuriated. So he has succeeded in uniting millions. He just united them AGAINST himself, and Obama.

    Please bear in mind, I am not trying to pick a fight. I am merely looking for evidence to back up your opinions. I fail to see how taking the Lord’s name in vain, in His house, uttering, “God Damn America!” can be taken out of context. Please enlighten me.

    Williams keeps diggin a hole, hopefully Barak will fall in it and this horrible pre-election media frenzy will calm down! I agree with Rudy, how can you take, “God Damn America” and say that it was taken out of context…it does not matter what the context was, that is what that man said, I don’t care if he was talkin about the easter bunny! In what context is that phrase acceptable, from a supposed “man of God” at that!?!?!
    I used to be a liberal when I was young (early 20′s), then I realized, not everyone is a victim, it can be your fault and you should be held accountable, don’t cry to me, put your big-girl panties on and deal with it! I sport the “white goggles” and I can see that clear as day!
