Reported on the Drudge Report today, reverend Joseph Lowry is quoted as praying this:

"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen. Say Amen"

I swear, these people are so ingrained with divisiveness and obsession with race, gender and economic status that even when they consciously attempt to transcend wordly fixations, they crash and burn miserably and just reveal themselves to be the same old offensive bigots.

These people are living in the past.

In four years those of us unfortunate enough to be obviously Caucasian will have no problem describing racial discrimination first hand.

And it will be hailed as "progress".

Not as bad as Zimbabwe, but bad enough.

Vir: You would like to think so, but they keep beating that dead horse trying so hard to keep being victims, and for some reason folks keep allowing them to. The longer folks act "oppressed" the longer they truly will be, by themselves. I just wish they would quit accusing me of being a racist or bigot or whatever the term is now for someone who thinks a person should be self-supporting rather than live off the largesse of other folks' "white guilt." I've never oppressed anyone, and my ancestors never enslaved anyone, and frankly this crap is getting old. And I'm pretty sure this fellow was never a slave, either.

But hey, if this rhetoric is how the big O is going to "bring us together," he must be one heck of a magician. I think somewhere in the NT we were warned about those who would call evil good and good evil....

As first a Catholic, then an African American, i'll quickly weigh in with my comments.

1. Most of those who committed those hainus crimes against the African American population, the torchure, the lynching, etc. are well dead. Some people think that the election of Barack Obama is going to be some sort of vindication for what happened, and some in my circles would like to see the conditions reversed, well, the election of Barack is not going to be atonement for the sins of the past. There is nothing in the world that will be atonement for the sins of the past committed by these people. What people need to do is grow up, get over the sins of the past and use this time to grow and not take this time to apply reverse discrimination.

2. I was born in the mid 80's, so to be honest, I don't have any memories of being judged because of my race. (I've ran into more problems for being Catholic than anything else)...

3. I've yet to figure out how doing nothing but community organizing, not being able to produce a birth certificate some how makes you qualified to be president. I'd like to pronounce this day as the official death of the Constitution.

4. Lastly, I pray that the Light of the Lord shines upon him that he may realize the error of his ways with anti-life, that he may repent and come into full Communion with the Church that Christ established, the Catholic Church.

Guilt and victimization are weapons of the socialists to "divide and conquer".
But they do not follow such moral codes and values themselves as they are, in their own words, "burgeois morality".

His comment about "yellow" is also racist. Does he mean asians are too tense?
