Oh, shut the fuck up, man.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s former spiritual adviser spoke just a few miles from the White House on Sunday, and politics and controversy weren’t far from what Rev. Jeremiah Wright had to say.
“As we celebrate the foundations of our future, this is not a time to romanticize because we have the first African-descended president in the White House,” Wright said in a fiery sermon that lasted close to an hour. “You see what the tea party is trying to do.”
Speaking at Washington’s Florida Avenue Baptist Church, which marks its 100th anniversary this week, Wright urged parishioners to teach their children true African-American history and not to cede their educations to “our enemies” who teach “his story,” one that “distorts our story, disses our story.”
Children may “only know Oprah and Obama,” he said, so it’s up to elders to teach about Nat Turner, Emmett Till, Rosa Parks, Paul Robeson, Zora Neale Hurston and other black voices."

“We need to tell our children … how we got from a black congressman named Adam Clayton Powell to a black president named Barack Hussein Obama,” he said to applause.

So he wants them to tell the story of a stolen election, voter intimidation, and union thuggery? Cool.

No, no...this is a good thing. Hey, Wright, be sure and tell them about the first Black Congressmen, who were all Republicans. Right about the time they were elected, the Dems were busy starting the KKK.

I'm certain you'll be happy to spread these truths around. Right? ;)

“our enemies”?

Story was they offered Wright a hundred fifty thousand a couple year`s ago to keep his big mouth shut prior to the 2008 election.Well he`s probably pissed that away by now on Cadillac`s and KFC and the 2012 price has gone up. (inflation ya know).

Divide and conquer... that is the Dems mantra. He, the Prez, and Dems are doing a fantastic job at that!

Y'all are probably too young to remember Adam Clayton Powell, one of the first of the most corrupt black politicians to get his dirty laundry exposed in spite of being a member of Congress.

Back in '67 even his fellow Congressional Democrats couldn't stand him. What a great role model for black kids.
