Skip to comments.Wright Calls Americans Racist, Slams Fox News

Reverend Jeremiah Wright commented Thursday on the controversy surrounding his fiery sermons brought up during President Barack Obama's campaign for the White House and the angry opposition to the historic new healthcare law.
The retired pastor of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ, signed copies of his book, Sankofa Moment, before speaking at the Jackson State University student center ballroom.
Asked if he regretted any of his controversial sermons Wright said, "I haven't been apart of any controversy, number one. Fox News bought 4-thousand dollars worth of tapes 20-years to go back to see what Obama had been listening to. Those sermons that they aired and news clips that the nation saw were 5-years old and 7-years-old, so that was not part of the presidential campaign. The media made the controversy; not Jeremiah Wright."
And on the name calling and anger over the health care law, Wright said, "..it's all part of that kind of hatred that runs in the country for people of color and for the poor.

Is anyone really paying attention to the hatemongers on the left?
Everything is racist.
Some Americans are racist. Like Reverend Wright for example.
Hate Speech speaks.
Well, the Ubanga administration is all about reparations, so the poor will be paid well for their votes... But how stupid did regular working Americans have to be in 2008 not to see this coming?
White is a color.
The same old blithering black fascist..
Well, I for one think SOMEBODY’s projecting.
Why is Wright on Fox when James David Manning’s website has been shut down?
Wright is wrong.
Wright needs to have a close encounter with a speeding bus
Time to thin the ranks of these anti-Americans a bit .
Weeds in a garden
ps: he moved ....
YouToob cut him off at the knees , but the irrepressible Rev
set up his own hosting for video remarks
Set in his ways.
Hate speech has a face, and it’s name is Jeremiah Wright.
This guy is three minutes away from a straight jacket.
Even though he is a Reverend. (and we all know how Holy and clean of sin a Reverend is don’t we?)
Me thinks someone at Fox News is a little "hyphen-happy."
But regarding the substance of what Wright said: So I suppose that if Obama had been caught listening raptly, nodding thoughtfully, and even applauding, in the early 1990s, to footage of Black-Supremist Louis Farrakhan delivering his inciteful, racist speeches, that would have likewise had no place in the presidential campaign and should therefore have been ignored by the American public?
Wright was and is a hate-monger, and the only proper thing for Obama to have done would have been to have stated that openly at the moment the controversy was made public.
This guy needs a ton of sunscreen at the beach. I’d like to see his DNA profile. He is more Caucasian than most Swedes.
