Now that the fervor has subsided and we can actually look at what was said in context of history, we know deep down that Reverend Wright spoke for many of us. He was not divisive as many tried to paint him.  He was untactfully correct, brutally honest.

Even now we debate our place in America’s world. With our young men killing each other for no reason, no true leaders to give alternatives, we are compelled to find a reason rather than blame.  There is enough blame to go around. Reverend Wright just made note of it in a place where he could be heard and unfortunately, misunderstood.  

I knew immediately what his words meant. The truth of it rocked me to the core. POTUS had to distance himself to draw a larger audience.   Like an R&B singer crossing over to pop or country.  The reason that everyone was in a tizzy was because there was the politically correct tacit discussion of race and ethnicity. President Obama wasn’t “acting Black“. He could have just as easily been John Edwards or one of the other candidates.  No, this isn’t the race card, though race did play a part.  

I’m not saying that POTUS doesn’t deserve his position. It’s just that the stars aligned and when the results were entered, he was still standing.    No one is their right mind would vote for Sarah Palin.  The election was really between John McCain and Biden.  Even former President Jimmy Carter acknowledged that the problems that POTUS is having with Congress is because Obama is a black man. So if you can’t trust the innate nature of humanity trusts President Carter.      It is indeed an accomplishment, history was made. POTUS was the first. Once his two terms eAnd, the next Black president may not come until the new millennia.   And all POTUS needs is one really good misstep and he can  kiss his second term goodbye.
pretense and face the ugly truth. Then we can move forward.
