Please do your homework and do something useful before you spew about how racist black people are

You're pretty much proving my point, here. Imagine a church that promoted White superiority and devotion to the Aryan nations. It becomes
intolerant and racist to you, doesn't it? Sorry, but it works both ways. This is such a simple point, and I'm not sure if you're unwilling or
unable to grasp it, but think about it for a minute without replying about how oppressed "your people" are.
Furthermore, I never said anything about how racist "black people" are. However, in my opinion, Reverend Wright is a racist and so is Obama and
anyone who subscribes to that church's ideals.
but that is the point, Interceptor!! I don't have to imagine
it because that was the case here for four hundred years
don't you get
it???....It does not "work" both ways because history didn't play out "both ways" in this country.....Whites had and still have institutional
power over black communities...the civil rights movement was a good start but flawed as all movements are...there is more to learn or unlearn as the
case may be...
Simply because you grew up without slave history ingrained in your family tree does NOT negate the experience for millions of others who did
grow up with that consciousness, and who continue to experience varying levels of prejudice against their skin color, from racially motivated murder
to extreme and illegal prison sentences, to discrimination in housing and lending practices...thats the short list...so when someone gets angry about
these very real
issues and speaks out passionately I take the time to listen carefully...
Wright does not offend me in the slightest....ignorance offends me....the patent refusal to walk a mile in another's shoes offends me....over and
