How much of Pastor Jeremiah Wright's race-based "theology" does Barack Obama really share?
....Candidate Obama tried to dismiss his support for Wright, telling Charlie Gibson of ABC News, "It's as if we took the five dumbest things that I ever said or you ever said in our lives and compressed them, and put them out there, you know, I think that people's reaction, would be understandably upset." And rightly so. In sermon after sermon, Wright's radical black nationalist ideas were clearly and emphatically stated. They were not an aberration, but the focal point of Pastor Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, where Obama was an active member for 20 years.
.....Education mattered deeply to the Wrights....They enrolled him at Central High School, an all-male magnet establishment considered among the nation's best public schools at the time. It was 90 percent white. The class yearbook announced, "Always ready with a kind word, Jerry is one of the most congenial members [of his class]." But Wright himself dismissed that period of congeniality in a later sermon. "I used to let my behavior be determined by the white world's expectations," he recalled ruefully.
The young Jeremiah was off to a promising start, but at age 15 was arrested for grand larceny auto theft. His parents sent him to the all-black Virginia Union University. But Wright quit after two years and joined the Marines. Wright later said he hated being educated at "black schools founded by white missionaries." Still, during his short time at VUU he met fellow students who made a lasting impression: a young PhD student named John Kinney who had studied under both Martin Luther King, Jr., and James Cone, the founder of black liberation theology; and Samuel DeWitt Proctor, a longtime friend and mentor of King.......

Yep. Wright is a race hater of the highest order. All I have to go on is his words and actions, of course. I could be wrong. </sarc>
With so much to choose from I think I would be hard pressed to come up with the five dumbest things he ever said.
It's hard to believe anyone lives in this country, enjoying all the benefits, opportunieies and rights of we have and yet has so much animosity and hatred for the country. There is only one way to feel about a person SO anti-American.
Minorities will tell you that it is impossible to be racist if you don’t have the power. I guess they subscribe to a different definition of racism than I do.
I guess we can call Obama a racist because he DOES have the power. The article describes the true hate that Wright holds for whites.
The truth of the matter is that it is the LIBERALISM that spawns and nurtures the hated. Your color, sex, sexual identity, nationality, age, religion, handicap, disability, what ever identity or victims group you use to ask for wealth redistribution or special social status and rights, is just a subset in the larger socialist picture.
Obama and his wife are racists, now we just have to let the rest of the world know it.
....even if they are true.
All of it.
Remember this article about Jeremiah Wright’s house?
