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?!?!?!
