Is it because he’s Black?

In the following Hannity and Combs interview with the Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright it is made apparent to all why Conservatives are having embolic brain infarctions over Sen. Barack Obama’s pastor.

Sean Hannity speaking for all Conservatives made it clear why he doesn’t like Sen. Obama’s church. The reason is Rev. Wright’s church’s emphasis!

You see Trinity United Church of Christ specializes in catering to the Black community.

Black, Black, Black as Hannity, in a very self revealing moment, pointed out as if something were wrong with a Black pastor preaching, teaching and ministering to Black people.

Hannity then attempted to use reverse relativist logic to pose the question, that in like fashion if a church specialized and catered only to the white community would that be considered racist? Mr. Hannity forgets his history!
"It is appalling that the most segregated hour in Christian America is 11 o'clock on Sunday morning."—Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. King wrote those words in 1958 describing the Sunday Morning Apartheid that was practiced in the United States of America during that time and that continues largely today. An America where for 200 years White congregations and White pastors specialized and catered only to the white communities in which they lived because Blacks where excluded from their neighborhoods, their churches and their day to day lives.

Many people point to what they call the divisive and incendiary language that Rev. Wright uses in his sermons some would even suggest that Rev. Wright is anti-American for some of his sermonizing.

But let us not forget that there was a Christian minister that spoke about love and character in the ways that no one could object too. He spoke about the highest concepts of the constitution of the United States, inclusion and the American life and how everyone should share equally under the true meaning of America’s constitution. And for all of those love filled and inspired words Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered in cold blood by the America that he was attempting to embrace.

When I view the following video I see an arrogant, elitist and ignorant Sean Hannity attempting to force his concepts of Christianity on someone who believes in God and Christ but does not believe in the way that Mr. Hannity’s view of Christianity has manifested itself to the world in the past or presently.

What do you see?

I must tell you that after viewing this piece I am disturbed that in 2008 the Clinton campaign could leak the Rev. Wright tapes into the middle of a presidential campaign for the purpose of inciting racial hatreds in this campaign, thus making it absolutely racially toxic for Sen. Obama. And to think that Conservatives would buy into the Clinton’s deviant plan hook line and sinker because of what, latent hatred of Blacks?

Could it be that Black people were right all along about the present day Conservative party?
Gov. Rendell may have been right all along when he said some white voters in Pennsylvania aren't ready to vote for a black presidential candidate.

In the Democratic primary, 19 percent of all voters said race was an important factor in their decision. And 4 percent of voters said it was the most important factor.

Among this group that acknowledged taking race into consideration, Hillary Clinton beat Barack Obama, 59 percent to 41 percent.
