Twenty Years: Just Words

These are quotes of The Reverend Jeremiah Wright, formerly of Trinity United Baptist Church, Chicago, Illinois.

These quotes are from a five day seminar advertised as focusing on politics and public policy in South Africa and America given between January 21-25, 2010 in Chicago.

"White folk done took this country," Wright said. "You're in their home, and they're gonna let you know it."

"You are not now, nor have you ever been, nor will you ever be a brother to white folk," he said. "And if you do not realize that, you are in serious trouble."

"Bill [Jones, author of the book "Is God a White Racist?] said, 'They just killed four of their own at Kent State. They'll step on you like a cockroach and keep on movin', cause you not a brother to them.' "

The educational system in America is designed by whites to mis-educate blacks, "not by benign neglect but by malignant intent."

"It was always about becoming white . . . to master what [they] do."

Ethiopian Jews "...are despised by white Jews": "And now the Knesset [Israeli parliament] is meeting with European Jews, voting on whether or not these African Jews can get into [Israel]."

"We probably have more African-Americans who've been brainwashed than we have South Africans who've been brainwashed."

Martin Luther King was, "...misguided for advocating nonviolence among his people, 'born in the oven of America.'"

Twenty years. Twenty years of his adult life President Obama spent listening to the words of Jeremiah Wright, yet when asked about what he had heard Reverend Wright say during those years, the aspiring candidate said this:

"Not once in my conversations with him have I heard him talk about any ethnic group in derogatory terms, or treat whites with whom he interacted with anything but courtesy and respect."

Remember this speech by President Obama [The one that was essentially plagiarized from Deval Patric]??

“Don’t tell me that words don’t matter.

‘I have a dream.’

Just words.

‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’

Just words.

‘We have nothing to fear but fear itself.’

Just words.

That's right, people. Just words.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Just words.

Great post Soloman, nice to see you're back.

It is people like Reverend Wright who are intent on keeping the racial and cultural hated in this country alive. They do not want to see people get along because without division, they have no platform to preach on. As long as they can keep people hating another race or class they can reap the benefits.

The color of one's skin, their gender or the deity, if any, they choose to worship has no bearing on the worth of a person. It is only what is in their heart that matters.

Wright, Sharpton, Jackson...they're all the same. Preaching hate is their livelihood.

When I was in college, I had no idea this sort of thing was going on. I began to hear whispers.

What I have seen since confirms my worst fears. Racism is not confined to the white race. :-( Not at all.

It's sad that the only two things in this life that are really color blind is true love (God) and pure evil (wright... I mean satan). Lines are drawn for sure.

Just a quick observation ... Jeremiah Wright is a racist!

Excellent post Soloman.

Why is it some of the most racist people I know aren't white?
