From the comments section. . .

. . .of my post on John McWhorter:
Everyone is complaining about Rev Wright's words? Yes the tone and words may not be correct but was he telling lies?
Have the black community brought drugs into this country? No! they don't have the resources. Don't listen to the sound bites but the complete sermon.
Listen to the complete sermon about fidelity.

Let's tell the truth.

This is the sort of idiocy that Wright seeks to legitimize, and why Obama is so thoroughly embarrassed by his association right now. And to cap it off by trying to say that everything has been taken out of context based on a few sound bites is utterly ludicrous. By way of demonstration:

A guy walks into a bar, sits down and says, "Give me ten shots of your best Scotch."

I forget how the rest of the joke goes, but your mother's a whore.

Look, it's easy to get mad about someone calling your mom a whore, but it really was a funny joke and you really need to get over it.
