Jeremiah Wright taught a five day course at the Chicago Theological Seminary last week, on the grounds of Chicago University. He had a lot to say to his small class of no more than 20 “older” African-American women who could afford to pay the $300 if not needed for college credit, or $1000+ for credit. Wright claims that Martin Luther King was wrong to advocate for non-violence for blacks “born in the oven of America.” Who would pay the man to praise this country? Anyone?
Forty-two years after the death of Martin Luther King, I think Wright is calling for violence against Whites.
From the New York Post here are some of the more disgusting quotes, although his “God d**n America” can’t be topped for the worst of his outrages, and s you read them, remember that Barack Obama and Michelle sat in this church for 20 years:
We probably have more African-Americans who’ve been brainwashed than we have South Africans who’ve been brainwashed, he said, and seemed to allude to President Obama twice: “Unfortunately, I got in trouble with a fella for saying this…All your commentaries are written by oppressors.” At the mention of nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan – whom Obama disavowed during the campaign – black leaders “go cutting’ and duckin,’ he said.
“You are not now, nor have you ever been, nor will you ever be a brother to white folk,” he said. “And if you do not realize that, you are in serious trouble.”
The civil-rights movement,” Wright said, “was never about racial equality. It was always about becoming white . . . to master what [they] do.” Martin Luther King, he said, was misguided for advocating nonviolence among his people, “born in the oven of America.”
“White folk done took this country”
You probably remember that Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC) built a million dollar home in a gated in the Odyssey Club neighborhood on a golf course. The New York Post has an interesting bit of info: before the $1M home, the Wrights lived in a two-story house in an affluent subdivision “surrounded by roadblocks: the line between rich and poor is literal. His former neighbors all say he kept to himself.”
NewsBusters’ Noel Sheppard has more and says no one besides the New York Post reported this incendiary event. Once more, who would pay this man to talk nice?
