In spite of promises to the contrary, Barack Obama has not left the racial hatred of Jeremiah Wright behind. Instead, he invited it back under a different name: Joseph Lowery.
Rev. Lowery invoked race in a derogatory way after Obama was sworn in. According to the Associated Press:
|After the first black president had been sworn in, Rev. Joseph Lowery’ ended his benediction with a rhyme familiar to black churchgoers:
“We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around…”
“… and when white will embrace what is right.”
Of course, the implication of such a statement is that all white people are racist. It took less than one hour for Obama to abandon his “post-racial” promise.
Nothing like a president who judges by color of skin, eh?
