He sounded to me like the liar he is, describing a close relationship with Wright before a black American audience that he later characterized for the public-at-large (including white Americans) as cursory.

Well someone is a liar that's for sure.


Then in a speech in Philadelphia that his campaign billed as a major address on race, Mr. Obama gave a more complex picture of Mr. Wright and the relations between the two men.

While saying that the inflammatory remarks were "not only wrong but divisive,'' he spoke of the inspiration Mr. Wright offered to a black community still wrestling with the legacy of slavery.

"He contains within him the contradictions – the good and the bad – of the community that he has served diligently for so many years,'' Mr. Obama said of Mr. Wright. " I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother."

But you keep on, keeping on, with your silliness, as we all know there is never a shortage of right wingers to join you in the world you choose to create for yourself.

Racial bigotry is racial bigotry and IMO is no less pernicious in black or brown skinned Americans than it is in white Americans.

Sounds nice, but I can't help wondering when exactly you acquired such strong views on the subject. Might it have been growing up in West Texas some 50,60,70 years ago? And if so did you have a lot of personal experience on the receiving end that helped you to shape your views?

Just saying,
