Now, ponder if you will, what would happen if a prominent white pastor made this statement. We don't even have to think too hard. Remember the hew and cry over Lawrence Summers' statement that men and women are different? That seems to be stating the obvious. But for a white person to say that a black person's brain is different, when there is zero evidence to support this assertion would smack of, what is the word I'm searching for? Oh yeah, racism. It's okay, though. The racist in question is black.
Michelle Malkin says:
If he’s this comfortable mocking black/white differences in front of media cameras, I can only imagine what he says in private to his faithful black liberation ideology adherents.Michelle has a great round-up as usual with all the accompanying video of Pastor Right Brain. He also says that white people clap differently than black people. So, does Barack Obama clap like a white person or a black person?
And for those of you thinking that this isn't relevant, keep in mind Obama calls Wright his "spiritual mentor". For twenty years he's been letting this nonsense soak into his soul. I find it difficult to believe that the ideology he sought out weekly didn't affect him. We choose our churches and pastors, who they are and what they preach reflects who we are and what we believe.
UPDATED: Glenn Reynolds thinks that Jeremiah Wright is sabotaging Obama. Sure looks that way. The only other explanation is that he's a fame whore and doesn't mind killing Obama's chances so he gets to be the center of the media universe for a while. If that's the case, Obama must be ruing his excellent judgment about friends and associates. And I wonder. Does he now regret not booting the "crazy uncle" to the curb?
A reader asked what I make of the Bill Moyers nonsense. Well, I linked to the best piece on the whole debacle yesterday, but I'll link to it again today. Jeff Goldstein followed up with his own thoughts, which are precisely mine on the subject. He just says it better. So go read it.
