Barack Obama Says That Reverend Wright Comments are a Legitimate Issue … Rev. Wright Still Providing Fodder
Revered Wright’s comments are a legitimate issue. This is straight from the Donkey’s mouth, no twisting of words or words are out of context. Barack Obama did say that the Reverend Jeremiah Wright comments were a legitimate issue. (Read the full Fox News Sunday transcript)
Obama said that, “I think that people were legitimately offended by some of the comments that he had made in the past. The fact he’s my former pastor I think makes it a legitimate political issue. So I understand that.” (ABC News)
Is the change that Wright is talking about the same as Voters?
Last night in Detroit Reverend Wright gave a some what interesting and strange speech to the NAACP. As Hot Air stated, “providing more fodder for those who wonder how Obama could have sat in his church for 20 years and not understood how large a liability.”
He suggested that differences in brain structure accounted for differences between blacks and whites, a speech that turned around would have generated shrieks of racism from the same audience.
Could one only imagine what would happen if a white person made the following comments?
He acted out the differences between marching bands at predominantly black and predominantly white colleges. “Africans have a different meter, and Africans have a different tonality,” he said. Europeans have seven tones, Africans have five. White people clap differently than black people. “Africans and African-Americans are right-brained, subject-oriented in their learning style,” he said. “They have a different way of learning.” And so on.
More from Michelle Malkin and Wright’s racial brain theory.
John McCain needs to just come out with some straight talk and tell it like it is. Stop being politically correct. If Obama calls it a legitimate issue, so can you. Reverend Wright’s comments are legitimate political debate.
“I’m sorry your local political analysts are saying that I’m polarizing and my sermons are divisive. I’m not here to address an analyst’s opinion. I stand here as one representative of African-American church tradition, believing that a change is going to come.”
