Racially charged comments made by the Rev. Dr. James Lowery at a get out the vote event in Forsyth, Ga., on behalf of the president are making the rounds on Twitter today. According to the Monroe County Reporter, Lowery, who delivered the benediction at President Obamas inauguration ceremony in 2009, told an audience of voters that level of hatred and bitterness coming out of the election had him returning to his views as a young militant that all white people are going to hell.
The Reporter also quoted Lowery as saying, I dont know what kind of a n wouldnt vote with a black man running. All that he did with the stimulus was genius. Nobody intelligent would risk this country with Romney. Contacted by the Daily Caller for comment, Lowery said the line about white people going to hell was clearly a joke, and he didnt remember making the second statement.
Opinion on Twitter is split between whether Lowerys comments represent the new tone in Washington or the post-racial America of the Obama administration.

The comments raise questions not only about the spiritual company the president keeps, but also about the souls of mixed-race individuals.

Jackson and Sharpton were the first two cockroaches and we all know there are never only just two cockroaches.
Well, of course we are- because we’re out there wantonly assaulting & killing people just for the pure joy of it 0_o & robbing/ burglarizing because we “need new stuff”... (list goes on)
Was he the guy who said that “yellow” needed to be mellow, when the “red man” can get ahead man, and when “white” will do what’s right? ?
Fo’ mo’ years and I’m as good as there, Rev.
You know what?
If, after I die, I run into James Lowery, I will know for sure I went to Hell. If Heaven is populated by the likes of Lowery, I’d rather be in Hell.
There is not a more racist element of humanity than blacks.
That generalization does not help and is not accurate. I work with a lot of military people of all colors and races, and there are plenty of blacks who are not racist.
If Romney wins, those who live near an urban area need to be locked and loaded on election night and the next several days. Mr. Remington and Mr. Glock will be with me watching the election results at the Thorne residence.
The scriptures clearly state at 2 Corinthians 10:32;
“ Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the gentiles, nor to the church of God.”
One can only pray that the “blind pastor” will stop leading others into the ditch he is indupitably heading and that he may take time to read 2 Corinthians Chapter 6.
God bless all people everywhere.
