“True that no one in America is a slave now and that you did not enslave anyone, but equally true is that the effect of the terrible past still haunts. Blacks were slaves for many years until the day came when thay were told 'you are free to go'. Go where? With what? and how should they get there? As far as WHERE - they were not welcome in certain neighborhood even today. WITH WHAT - After slaving for years - no pocket change when they were told that they could go. HOW SHOULD THEY GET THERE- this takes us bak to where? and with what?
America the beautiful MY FOOT!!!!!!!!!!!”

“Very true! And, don't forget all the white men who "built" this country ....that is with black slaves doing all the work! All in the name of God and Christianity! Ha ha! I agree with Wright and I'm white! It doesn't matter what color you are to know that the blacks in this country have a legitimate complaint regarding the white man. And, anyone who doesn't understand this doesn't have a working brain.”
“"You could not choose your Father"
Obama said this the man is like family. It is true that you chose minister but when the relationship developed to the level of family then that is just what it is. I know people who whould not have chosen the family members that they are stuked with and i also know people who regard 'non-family' individuals at as high a level if not higher than family.
What i am saying is the talk of 'You could not choose your Father. But Obama chose his minister, mentor and friend' is crap. Blood or no blood, people can be family to each other and have inseparable bond.”
