Wright’s Latest Crude, Racist Comments

From the New York Post:

REV. STRIKES AGAIN

By GEOFF EARLE

September 1, 2008

TOLEDO, Ohio – The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s fiery ex-pastor, re-emerged yesterday with a crude reference about race and sex in the White House.

This ordinary boy [Obama] just might be the first president in the history of the United States to have a black woman sleeping at 1600 Pennsylvania legally,” Wright said, referring to Michelle Obama, in a sermon at the Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church in Houston.

It was unclear whether Wright was making a reference to prostitution, to old miscegenation laws, or to the history of illicit interracial sex under slavery.

Wright’s remarks yesterday were full of praise for Obama – although several times, he referred to Obama as a “boy” who later developed into an extraordinary person, through God’s work and, presumably, Wright’s guidance.

“The lord turned the ordinary into the extraordinary. Y’all just saw it this past week. It was on national television,” Wright said to applause.

“An ordinary black boy raised in a single-parent home . . . walked into my office 20 years ago to talk about his dream for a community that concentrated on things that we could achieve in common.” …

What a blessing is Mr. Wright.

Mr. Obama sure can pick them.

“An ordinary black boy raised in a single-parent home…”

Note that Wright doesn’t even know Obama’s real history. He was not raised by his single mother, but by her grandparents.

But when has the “Reverend” ever let facts get in the way of a stem-winding sermon?
