Text of speech, supposedly.
just read it. BLAH! Didn’t do enough for me!
From the link:
I can no more disown him (Wright) than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother ñ a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.
These people are a part of me. And they are a part of America, this country that I love.
Obama: Did I know him (Rev. Wright) to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy?"Did I know him?" Why is Obama speaking in the past tense? They're still buddy, buddy.
That has been my experience at Trinity. Like other predominantly black churches across the country, Trinity embodies the black community in its entirety the doctor and the welfare mom, the model student and the former gang-banger. Like other black churches, Trinitys services are full of raucous laughter and sometimes bawdy humor. They are full of dancing, clapping, screaming and shouting that may seem jarring to the untrained ear. The church contains in full the kindness and cruelty, the fierce intelligence and the shocking ignorance, the struggles and successes, the love and yes, the bitterness and bias that make up the black experience in America.
Read it. Arrogant and condescending IMHO.
Just read it.
It’s a fascinating speech.
“I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community.”
obama is so dead
Have to admit, good speech in the context of a liberal dem candidate. This may insulate him.
That’s exactly what he’s reading...wonder how it leaked.
Thank you for the link.....
