Lamest pun ever: Two Wrights don’t make a Wrong

I mean, last time I checked, there weren’t two Reverend Wrights, so what does that even mean?

I didn’t write about Rev. Wright in the election because it wouldn’t have been right.
Okay, I honestly just wrote that sentence so I could use “write/Wright/right.” I’m sorry.

Anyway, I didn’t write about him because I was sidetracked. I’m going to now. Without talking about Obama. I’m trying to hold my tongue against Obama until he’s been in office for at least three months. I can’t remember when he officially becomes President, but I think inauguration is in January. So, until graduation at my college, I’m going to keep my mouth shut.

My spell check on WordPress keeps highlighting Obama. When do you think that’ll change?
Anyway:

Reverend Wright quotes, complete with extra fun comments!

We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye.” Wow, he was doing really good up until the point when he became a conspiracy theorist. I know our government screws up, but I have no patience for people who talk about how 9/11 was a conspiracy. The reason why is because a certain pirate told me not to.

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.” To be honest, I have no idea what he’s talking about after the comma. Seriously. No, just kidding, he’s talking about 9/11 (the quote was made in 2001). See, America went and, yes, did some bad stuff to people. And so when some other people did bad stuff to us, it was our fault. Nevermind that bad stuff has been going on since the BEGINNING OF TIME, it’s all America’s fault.

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.” (2003) Although I really don’t have a problem with Rev. Wright “damning” America because he believes America treats citizens like crap, I am almost 100% certain that God does not damn America in the Bible.

“In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01. White America and the western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just ‘disappeared’ as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.” Because only white people were affected by 9/11. All the African Americans were like, “Psh, saw that coming,” and none of them died or were surprised or even cared. Apparently.

“Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run!…We [in the U.S.] believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God.” Racism is not how this country was founded, although the Founding Fathers were totally racist. Big shock; so was everyone else. What defines racism, exactly? Do you think the slaves were racist against white people? Does it count as racism if you have a really, really, really good reasoon? I want to know.

“Barack knows what it means living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people. Hillary would never know that. Hillary ain’t never been called a nigger. Hillary has never had a people defined as a non-person.” Frankly, I think there are a lot of people who think of Hillary as a “non-person.” Don’t you?

“Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill has been good to us. No he ain’t! Bill did us, just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty.” O.M.G. Did he really just say that? In a sermon? Seriously? And what on EARTH did Bill ever do that was so horrible to African Americans?!

What have we learned?

-Reverend Wright is a racist moron, who thinks that anyone who disagrees with him is a racist, because he is a RACIST who evidently can’t see any good in any white person. You know what? Not only have I never owned a slave, but I’ve never even wanted to. I’ve never called an African American a nasty name, and I don’t just lock my car door because I see some black kid in the parking lot (no, I lock my car door because I’m afraid someone is going to sneak into the backseat and KILL ME).
No, okay, let’s be fair: he probably doesn’t hate all white people. He probably has some white friends. But really, deep down, is he half-expecting those “friends” to betray him one day?

This preaching against the races has got to STOP. Race? Not a big issue. Anthropologically speaking, we humans have not been separated from each other long enough to have different “races.” Different skin tones, sure. But skin tones shouldn’t matter, and anyone who disagrees – black, white, Asian, WHATEVER – is a fool.
