    Nah, Wright isn't a hateful bigot. No way.


    A Sermon Obama Could Not Have Missed

    Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama's incendiary Chicago pastor, admired radical Harvard Law School professor Derrick Bell, inviting him to speak at Trinity United Church of Christ and referring to him from the pulpit.

    In one sermon, which Wright published in 1995 in a collection entitled Africans Who Shaped Our Faith: A Study of 10 Biblical Personalities, Wright referred specifically to Bell's protest against Harvard--the same protest that Obama supported.

    The sermon repeats the main doctrine of Bell's Critical Race Theory--that the United States was founded on racism, and that America remains irredeemably racist. Wright also attacked "Jewish lawyers," comparing the Jews of Jesus's time to "Klansmen" and describing Jesus as a racial provocateur:

    Jesus is a perfect model for the best type of faith. Jesus had a faith that did not avoid the realities of race. Modern reasoning tries to avoid the issue of race and pretend that race doesn't really matter.

    That is a lie. Race does matter. Race is a reality that one cannot ignore. America was founded on racism. America lives and breathers racism. In this country, racism is as natural as motherhood, apple pie and the fourth of July....

    What this country is is about racism from day one. The moment you take your first breath as a black person in this country, you have four strikes against you. You cannot ignore race.

    My apologies for intruding, but I asked a question in another thread you don't seem to have answered. It's the thread about the shooting in Afghanistan where you asserted that our troops feel a certain way about their mission and our current President.

    I believe I asked you when you served and under what President that gives you such insight on how our troops feel. (And if you have already answered, please direct me to said answer. TIA)

    I bet Jeremiah Wright has been waiting and waiting for 2012 so his name again, will be uttered across America. Rev Wright is relevant again!

    Breitbart.com has been discredited many times for using doctored video clips. The only reason anyone still goes to this site is to get their hate of the current administration on.
