How does Obama feel about slavery reparations?? Barrack Obamas pastor not only spews anti-American rhetoric from the pulpit but favors shaking down U.S. taxpayers for reparations for slavery. The Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright was the keynote speaker at the 2007 annual conference of NCOBRA, which stands for the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America. The Obamas just-released 2006 income tax return shows that they gave $22,500 to Trinity United Church of Christ, which they attended with such figures as Wright and Carruthers. Carruthers is the General Secretary of the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference, which includes Wright on its board and describes itself as a social justice organization. The website of the group includes a statement that Dr. Wright represents the best among us, one of the best in this tribe of prophetic preachers. He has made his church a place where one could express the centuries-old pain of being Black in America, while finding strength for a brighter day. An attack on this man of the God is an attack on all those of the cloth who believe in the social Gospel of liberation. In 2003, Carruthers spoke on behalf of Obamas Trinity United Church of Christ at a summit on reparations opened by Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam. Another group represented at the Farrakhan summit was the Republic of New Afrika (RNA), which seeks the creation of a black nation in the U.S. in the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina. While Carruthers said she did not know where Obama stood on the issue of reparations, the Chicago Tribune reported that he was asked in 2004 about the matter and spoke about how slavery had left a stain on the country that has yet to be eradicated. Nevertheless, he said that he opposed just signing checks over to African-Americans. Right Side News: Does Obama Favor Slavery "Reparations?"
