    CBTNY, you have to understand something. [I]He doesn't think what Jemimah Wright said is wrong. [/I] He's only doing this for political expediency. Black racists have had their enablers, white liberals tell them that it's ok to think and say these things publicly and nobody will call you on it. The thing is, no Black guy has gotten this close to the presidency. Now they are being called on it, and they are in a state of shock.

    WCO - I could go take a day off and chat with David Duke. If I chose to be an angry person with a whole world to blame his arguments would hit home beautifully. David Duke has plenty in common with Wright.

    There is ZERO room for this nonsense in Presidential debate. Obama could denounce it fully or let "AmeriKKKa" drag him down. It appears he is foolishly choosing the latter.

    You two idiots are taking Wright's comments out of context. That community was ravaged by Jim Crow and institutionalized racism; just as the Jews were subjected to Holocausts and pogroms. However, the Jews have a Holy Land, and the blacks need to shut up.

    Yeah, yeah, it's an eloquent speech and idiots will now compare him to JFK even more.

    This isn't the time to be focusing on "black resentment" and a "racial stalemate." Bear Stearns literally just went out of business, and thousands of families are losing their homes (and not just black families). This speech is a distraction, nothing more. Condemn Wright or don't condemn Wright and move on, enough with this.

    he just went on to say "conservative talk show hosts went on to make careers dismissing real racism and trying to mask other situations as reverse racism"...

    okay- I agree with that to an extent...

    yet he never mentioned in that piece people who constantly cry "racism" when it doesn't exist and do it for no other reason then things didn't go their way...

    again- going back to reverend wright being the victim...

    The electorate will not remember this single speech.

    They will, however, remember Rev. Wright's multiple speeches.

    Hence Obama's problem.

    here you go-

    Jim Crow was in the south! Where is Chicago? That was 50 friggin' years ago! Do you want to give blacks a "holy land". Fine, put it in Africa!

    And you are seriously comparing segregation to the Holocaust? You are a dopey white enabler.

    sack, I like your argument, but the comparison is a bit weak because David Duke is just angry. He hasn't gone through the difficulties of Jim Crow and instituionalized racism. He just hasn't. As young boys, as young men, these guys were put down, down, down. Let Wright and the rest rip away, it's part of the harvest we have sown today.

    I don't WANT to condone Wright's behavior, and I don't want Wright's remarks to slow Barak's momentum.

    I say "Just accept it", and move on.
