The Reverend Dr. Joseph Lowery gave the benediction at today's inauguration of Barack Obama. It could more accurately be called a political ramble. It was, in no uncertain terms, an embarrassment. And as loathe as I am to have to use a word that has long been at the heart and soul of liberal thought, I will break out my liberal/english dictionary and say it ... It was offensive.
Said Mr. Lowery:
"We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back ... when brown can stick around ... when yellow will be mellow ... when the red man can get ahead, man ... and when white will embrace what is right ..."
First off, this is a prayer?
Second, was the Reverend Lowery listening to old Jesse Jackson speeches before he gave this so-called prayer? The fact that the man can rhyme words only means that his faculties may parallel those of Dr. Suess, not that he is coherent.
What on earth is the man talking about?

Rick Warren was more “inclusive” than this old liberal windbag.
What crap. Ogama could have never been elected without White support. I wonder if this nonsense will send tingles up Chris Matthews’ leg.
“I do NOT like green eggs & ham. Amen”
Agreed. It was worse than idiotic, combined with the fact that he looked and sounded like a mumbling corpse.
His not-so-concealed jab at whites was rude, inappropriate, stupid, and openly racist.
You can bet The Big O proof-read the copy before it was delivered. . . and he approved every word.
Bet on it.
Great, they can move to the front and tow the line for a while.
Rush is parsing this almost word for word right now—LOL!
Disgusting racist doggerel is called “prayer”? This is shameful.
“Cat in the Hat” Ping.
“We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back ... when brown can stick around ... when yellow will be mellow ... when the red man can get ahead, man ... and when white will embrace what is right ...”
Only the “white man” doesn’t embrace what is “right”, everyone else are victims.
Words be quick
...if you believe it.
[Jim Morrison: An American Prayer]
Imagine the uproar if the Benediction were bound by Truth in Advertizing.
“”We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back ... when brown can stick around ... when yellow will be mellow ... when the red man can get ahead, man ... and when white will embrace what is right ...”
Is this satire??
This sounds like that “Reverend” that Jerry Springer pulls out to be on his show. The drunk one.
Didn’t take long for that old black racism to rear its ugly head.
I hoped for a change, but all I got was a dope with mange!
I agree... I was appalled by that... very inappropriate. I know this man has seen a lot of injustice in this country in his 87 years, but c'mon... sounds like he's still blaming "whitey" for everything.
So the first black President has a racist “prayer” spoken over his inauguration.
Lovely. A sign of things to come?
“When the white will do what is right” — Gee I guess Hussein Obama got to be President only on black votes — whites are still not doing what is right in the eyes of that black racist Lowery.
