By now I’m quite sure that those of you who keep up with current events are aware f the situation between Barack Obama and Rev. Jeremiah Wright. That being said, here are my thoughts. This shit represents the type of “in fighting” that stands in the way of black progress. This is yet another example of how skillfully the media can engineer a rift between two prominent black figures while imparting trick-knowledge in the process.
Let’s start with Rev. Wright. Although I am not religious, when this story first broke I figured this man’s words were probably being taken out of context so I went on youtube and did the knowledge to the sermons in question. I would suggest that anyone who wants to see just how far they went to misrepresent him do the same. The soundbites shown on various news-outlets don’t offer the full gist of his statements, most of which were true. These fractional snippets have been used to unjustly vilify the man and label him as anti-american and anti-white.
The other key thing to consider is the way that by making Rev. Wright out to be such a monster and noting the connection between he and Obama, the media makes Obama seem “guilty” by association. Guilty of what you ask? They want to project the idea that if his former Pastor feels this way, then so does he. The only problem is proving that to be true. So I guess that two people have to share the exact same views on everything in order to be acquainted huh? Get the fuck outta here! That’s absurd.
The really sad thing is that Obama felt like he had no choice but to come out and “denounce” the man. He would never admit this, but the reason he felt this way is because he has to ease the minds of white voters. He can’t afford to have them thinking that he shares Wright’s belief’s regardless of the truth in them because this would alarm them and make it impossible for them to feel that he has their best interests at heart to the same degree that he does the “minority” voter’s.
It’s a difficult position for them both. This comes at a bad time for Obama as he tries to hold off Clinton. And it’s unfortunate for Wright because he’s been misquoted by the media and essentially thrown under the bus by someone that was once a friend and church member who has now denounced and discredited him publicly to serve his own personal interests. I bet Clinton and McCain are getting a huge kick out of this. Its just the type of fuel that white supremacy has run off of for years………..remember people……DIVIDED WE FALL!!!
