Thomas Sowell, race and politics, Barack Obama, racism, Jeremiah Wright

Thomas Sowell has written a great article about Barack Obama and his racist connections with Jeremiah Wright. Here are some excerpts:

“Any American, regardless of party or race, has to find it heartening that the country has reached the point where a black candidate for President of the United States sweeps so many primaries in states where the overwhelming majority of the population is white.”

“That’s the good news. The bad news is that Barack Obama has been leading as much of a double life as Eliot Spitzer.”

 “While talking about bringing us together and deploring “divisive” actions, Senator Obama has for 20 years been a member of a church whose minister, Jeremiah Wright, has said that “God Bless America” should be replaced by “God damn America” — among many other wild and even obscene denunciations of American society, including blanket racist attacks on whites.”

“We don’t need a President of the United States who got to the White House by talking one way, voting a very different way in the Senate, and who for 20 years followed a man whose words and deeds contradict Obama’s carefully crafted election year image.”
