As I said in my last blog....Here we go! Gone are the nice rosy feel good aura that surrounded Barack Obama's campaign for President. Sooner or later, as we all feared, the race issue was going to rear its ugly head. Underneath all the layers, that we as the American people have stacked on top of our view of the state of race relations in America, there lays the painful truth of racism and those who have suffered from its oppression. Who do these people think they are!? People like Geraldine Ferraro and Reverend Jeremiah Wright turn the most monumental moment in USA politics into their own self serving platform to vent all the racist frustrations that have boiled up inside of them after all their years. A monumental Presidential campaign where a black man or a woman will be nominated for President of the United States of America has been turned into a channel for older senior citizens like Geraldine Ferraro and Rev. Jeremiah Wright to use this country's proud moment into their own platform to spread hate and racism. Are you kidding me??? The very notion that these elders of our country would believe that their racist rantings would serve their respective candidates in a positive way is horrendous. I mean what were they thinking? The answer is that they weren't thinking. Or better yet they were thinking of only themselves and in fact ended up causing severe damage to each of their respective candidates. Sad to say but this country will be a lot better off when the older generations pass away since the older generations are forever stained from the painful racist history of this country. The new generations are not so embedded, molded, and shaped by this country's racist history because these younger generations were not alive during these times. These are the generations, that regardless of their own skin color, were inspired by Senator Obama's message and desperstely want to be a part of changing our country's racist, biased, sexist history by voting for a black man or woman for President. Hopefully the damage has not suffocated their hope and inspiration.
I'm sorry but if I were Senator Obama I would have vehemently outright DISOWNED Rev. Jeremiah Wright for his hate mongering sermon. People don't go to church to hear such divisive messages of hate from their pastors. On the contrary, people go to church to hear messages that are in line with God's will and God's word. Sadly, Rev. Jeremiah Wright got to full of HIMSELF and failed to get full of the spirit of the LORD as he is supposed to do. Senator Obama's speech today, that calmed the storm of his biggest controversy in his bid for President of America, did not do enough to set him back into society's good graces. Although he strongly criticized and condemned his Rev. Jeremiah Wright he should've flat out disowned his pastors wild rantings and radical ravings that only reflect the Reverend's own painful American experience. "He is like family to me" will be the phrase that may snuff out Senator Obama's Presidential bid. Hello Obama!!! You are running for PRESIDENT! Sometimes you have to cut people off from your past hat have "been like family" to you especially when they selfishly and wrongly represent you in a horribly damaging light the way Rev Jeremiah Wright's sermon did.
"God Bless America? No! God Damn America"
-Rev Jeremiah Wright
That comment by the "good' reverend showed NO LOVE or CONSIDERATION for his beloved Obama. BY GOD REVEREND!!!! Senator Obama is running for PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! Comments like God Damn America is NOT going to help him win the election. Rev. Wright should hold a press conference and pulicly apolgize for his inciderary comments in his sermon. Obama forgive your pastor like the good book teahces us to do...but disown hm like a President should.
