If your pastor spent several minutes of every sermon spewing racist comments and indicating that the world would be a much better place if only
"blackie" would go away...would you continue to attend?
Except there's no evidence Wright "spent several minutes of every sermon spewing racist comments" - there's one video tape where he makes one or
two comments some people have interpreted as "racist".
Frankly IMO, Wright's main point, that racism among whites has historically held black people back, is not only not "racist", it's utterly obvious
to anyone with half a brain and a history education
Point me to anywhere where Wright has said whites should be exterminated or subjugated, and I'll buy the "racist" talking point. Otherwise you just
have a typical inner-city black Protestant preacher preaching his own version of fire and brimstone Protestantism. Big freaking deal.
Hyperbole from the pulpit is nothing new
The "racist" thing is a scare campaign
, pure and simple.
As is the traditional right wing scare campaign that any Democrat that gets elected will impose Soviet-style collectivism on their first day in office
Funny, we lived through eight years of Bill Clinton (frankly I was never a fan of the guy BTW), and we're still a very capitalist country. Somehow he
didn't manage to turn the country over to Communism, although maybe that was his evil plan, as you guys kept telling me back then
And by the way, no Democrat in modern history has ever
been as close to a "socialist" as FDR was, 70 years ago
Believe it or not, there's a huge difference between a capitalist country with a welfare state, and state socialism, despite the rhetoric you guys
