Rev. Wright is Right

Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Rev. Jeremiah Wright drops mad knowledge at a reporters club today.

On Terrorism:

“You cannot do terrorism on other people and not expect it to come back to you.”

On Whether the government created AIDS to destroy the African American community:

“Based on what has happened to Africans in this country, I believe our government is capable of doing anything.”

On Haters:

“Those citizens who say that have never heard my sermons,” Wright said. “I served six years in the military. Does that make me patriotic? How many years did Cheney serve?

On Patriotism:

“God Bless America? No, God damn America God damns some practices, and there is no excuse for some of the things the government, not the American people, have done. That doesn’t make me not like America, or unpatriotic.”

Wright, 66, said the news coverage of his sermons showed a fundamental misunderstanding of the black religious tradition in America, which evolved over hundreds of years of slavery and repression. “This is an attack on the black church,” he said. “If you think I’m going to let you talk about my momma and her religious tradition, and my daddy and his religious tradition, you’ve got another think coming.”

Preach Brotha, Preach!! Can I get an Amen up in here?!?!?!

    Rev. Wright speaks the “unvarnished truth” and people will hate you for that.

  • Wonderlove

    Preach on then, brotha!

    As correct as his statements MAY be, I wished he would have timed his exclamations better.

    As unfair as it is, Obama is having to answer for Wright’s view. Obama has enough on his plate without having to deal with this.

    The conspiracist in me is telling me this is another way of trying to bring Obama down; someone is lining his pockets to come out with the “truth” right now.

    AMEN!!!! PREACH!

  • Doagae

    This man is the truth….for real….this country hates anything that even resembles the truth…..

  • I'm Just Me

    WOW!! Speak on it!

  • Lauren- GO SIXERS!!

    AMEN!!!

    They need to leave Rev. Wright alone….

  • finally

    Everything this man says is so true and it is just crazy that white people and people of color live in such different worlds. I know that Barack can’t openly support this man but you know that he knows what the deal is… I wish he would shut up and wait for the right moment for the sake of Barack. He doesn’t need this right now. There is a bigger picture at stake and some white people might take their link out on him for the elections

  • Al-Anon

    Rev. Wright calls America on its hypocrisy……….because that is exactly what it is ……….hypocrisy. The CIA gets nearly all of its funding for its covert operations from drug money. They trade drugs for weapons. The drug trade is never going to go anyplace because our government finds it convenient and profitable.

  • Lauren- GO SIXERS!!

    @ Lisa, his sermon when he preached about God Damn America was done a while ago before Obama was in the lime light, they pulled this out the archives and he shouldn’t have to time ANYTHING he is not a political personel he is a pastor and whoever associates his words and turns and says this is what OBAMA thinks is NOT right, these are Rev. Wright words, OBAMA said what he had to say about it and that should be the end of it…

    The amount of ignorance this man speaks is a great injustice to really great americans. Everything this man speaks of flows with racism and hate, lets all think for ourselves and truly unite the human race. This divider those nothing but hurt Obama, and clearly shows whta Obama and his wife truly think of this country.

  • ziorene

    I WORK AT THE HOSPITAL AND BELIEVE ME THEY TEST WHO THEY WANNA TEST THOSE TEST ARE SKEWED I’M NOT SAYING DON’T GET TESTED BUT THE PERCENTAGE IS OFF AND WORKING AT THE HOSPITAL YOU SEE WHY THAT’S ALL I’M GONNA SAY

  • Andre

    IF EVERYTHING THIS COUNTRY HATES IS TRUE, THEN ANYONE BELIEVING IN WHAT LOUIS FARRAKAN HAS TO SAY IS A NUT JOB DR. YACUB MY ASS UFO? PLEASE THAT GUY IS A RACIST BIGOT

  • finally

    @lauren..understood but white people will not see it that way. They see us as one and we all roll together. Black people that speak out against black injustice just scares them…lol Barack has gotten this far based on his politics but also based on the fact he knows how to play the role so they won’t see him as a black activist even though he really is…

  • tray calderon

    ” This divider does nothing but hurt Obama, and clearly shows whta Obama and his wife truly think of this country. ” Correction

  • Left Foot Luscious (fka Keepin' It Real - D'Original)

    Yeah, I don’t put it past American Government on that AIDS thing…

    I don’t care what nobody says, I just can’t put it past them – There some white people and scientist who hate Black People that much…

    They’ve done it before = Tuskegee Syphillis Experiments, 1932 – 1972.

    It just doesn’t make sense to me that a disease that’s been strictly found ONLY in monkeys for SOO many years, is just all of a sudden gonna just jump into Humans without humans having nothing to do with it…

    You never see Africans or Black People messing with them wild animals like that – but you see white people on the regular though = Stever Irwin the Crocodile Hunter (R.I.P.), Sigfried & Roy, etc.

    Why?

    We’re basically like if that wild animal stays over there, I’ll stay my Black a$$ over here and there won’t be any problems ’till it f#cks with us, then we’ll kill it – it’s as simple as that…

  • bree

    i appreciate this man’s honesty, however i dislike what his statements may do to Obamas run for presidency

  • finally

    tray@ since when is pointing out the truth racist. This society is racist and he is just pointing out the truth of what black peeople say and know behind closed doors. Maybe if we start telling white people what they need to hear then things will start to change. Again its just bad timing…

  • tj

    He’s always been a brilliant political commentator but more importantly he’s done phenomenal work in the black community. He and his church have pushed for educational reform, and reached out to HIV aids patients, he’s also encourage programs that break down racial barriers, and reached out to the gay and lesbian community, and of course you don’t hear about any of it.

  • tj

    He has a right to clear his name. Barack will survive. He will win the nomination and then he will use his ridiculously effective fund raising machine to pound McCain and his war record into the minds of independents. President OBama 08

  • Lisa

    @ Lauren: You are correct, but I agree with Finally’s point – “white people will not see it that way. They see us as one and we all roll together”

    As unfortunate and wrong as it is, it is true.

  • Relevance

    I don’t understand why this man is preaching this in his sermon, what about what he’s saying is Christian? I can only imagine what Christ would say or how he’d react to seeing someone preach in his name about something that has NOTHING to do with Christianity, YOU SAY YOU’RE A CHRISTIAN, THEN EXPECT TO BE HATED AND TREATED UNFAIRLY, IN FACT YOU SHOULD REJOICE BECAUSE OF IT!
