Reverend Wright knocks Obama in Sunday sermon
The Daily Caller ^ | 7/8/12 | Jamie Weinstein and Michelle Fields

Posted on 07/08/2012 12:13:45 PM PDT by Nachum

Speaking at the 100th anniversary of a Washington, D.C. church, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright knocked President Barack Obama and accused America’s elite academic institutions of instilling racism.

Wright opened up his sermon at the Florida Avenue Baptist Church Sunday by reading from the Book of Isaiah and speaking of the importance of foundational stones. Using that as a metaphor, Wright proceeded to list dozens of names that he suggested were foundational stones for the black community, from Nat Turner to Emmett Till to W.E.B Du Bois.

He then seemingly took a shot at his former parishioner, President Obama.

“They are the foundation,” he said of the names he listed. “These stones of memory shall serve as a sign among you so that in the future when your children, who only know Oprah and Obama, when our children who speak the language of Nas, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne (Weezy) and Ludacris. When your children ask you who are these people and what do these stones mean, these stones mean, you can tell them what it is that God did to get us from where we were to where we are.”

“This is how God brought us out,” he continued. “This is how God brought us over, this is how God brought us through.”

Notably absent from Wright’s list of names was the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

Wright later went on to suggest that America’s elite universities infect African Americans with “white racist DNA.”

He’s making a point that blacks are as inculcated with cultural muck as whites.

I wouldn’t trust anything coming out of the mouth of a man who celebrated 9/11 on the Sunday FIVE DAYS after 9/11/2001.

Or even if it had been 5,000 days.

Anyone celebrating 9/11 is an enemy of America and the American people.

Preachin' hate whitey, hate da Joooooz and hate America paid off handsomely for this clown - what with his $1.6 million-dollar mansion. He was all about BLT which he made patently clear when he went off on Sean Hannity about Cone.

"...dozens of names that he suggested were foundational stones for the black community, from Nat Turner to Emmett Till to W.E.B Du Bois. "

Not surprising the self-proclaimed Marxist (Wright) mentioned Du Bois.

Du Bois was a big time communist - never heard of the other two.

Nat Turner led a slave rebellion I think.

Till was killed by supremecists - think “Mississippi Burning”.

I didn’t recall the name DuBois - sounds like a FMD from what you say.

Wright later went on to suggest that America’s elite universities infect African Americans with “white racist DNA.”

“Take a baby born an African, as an African in the oven,” he said, using Malcolm X’s saying “just because a cat has kittens in the oven, that doesn’t make them biscuits” as a reference point for his riff.,p> “Take that baby him or her away from the African mother, away from the African community, away from the African experience … and put them Africans at the breasts of Yale, Harvard, University of Chicago, those trinity schools, UCLA or U.C. Berkley. Turn them into biscuits then they’ll get that alien DNA all up inside their brain and they will turn on their own people in defense of the ones who are keeping their own people under oppression.”

“There is white racist DNA running through the synapses of their under-brain tissue,” he continued.

“They will kill their own kind, defend the enemies of their kind or anyone who is perceived to be the enemy of the milky white way of life.”

The Reverend Wright is making about as much sense as Calypso Louie.

Or as Obama's economic advisers.

foundational stones for the black community

I guess Christ, the new testament, the apostles and the church are only white people foundation stones.

I was thinking of the same HEROS of the Black culture, Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver, Harriet Tubman. All of them had true strength. The blacks of America would have done better to set their compass and sights on the goals that these had rather than on DeBois, who abandoned America and died a Communist in Ghana.

Some great quotes from Booker T. Washington:

No greater injury can be done to any youth than to let him feel that because he belongs to this or that race he will be advanced in life regardless of his own merits or efforts.

Obama’s race card is overdrawn and will accept no more charges. So now they are issuing him a pity card to go with his, “I’ve tried real hard” whine.

I guess the Reverend thinks the little boys and girls who speak the language of the streets, who are isolated from anything outside the ghetto, will grow up and become leaders of society. Just what values does the Reverend think are important? Gangsta rap?

What a misleading headline.

Citing Oprah and Obama as the present ones the children know is not a ‘seemingly’ hit on Obama.

Maybe that is because Dr. King was a Republican who sought to work within the system.

Nat Turner, on the other hand, is a "foundation stone." Nat Turner and his followers killed about 60 white people. Among the 57 documented are 40 children (many of whom happened to be attending school at the time), with most of the remainder being women and elderly men, many of whom were too poor to even own slaves. But they were all soft targets of opportunity.

As a result of Turner's rampage, 56 of his followers were captured and executed. Those with lesser involvement were sold out of the state. A handful were acquitted. Up to 200 more innocent blacks throughout the south were simply lynched in retaliation.

Sadly, a bill being seriously debated in the Virginia legislature to outlaw slavery and compensate slave owners under the same successful model used by William Wilberforce in England, was voted down and the grip of slavery was tightened, including the outlawing of educating slaves as a result.

Great role model, eh?

Milky White Way is an old gospel tune. I have no idea what it means in this context.
