"I said that dirty word again. Every time you say Israel, Negros get awfully quiet . ."

Here is some more video footage of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a man Barack Obama has frequently credited as a significant influence. Perhaps Obama doesn't agree with everything this so-called representative of God preaches, but 20 years of frequent exposure to someone who clearly seems to be overtly obsessed with race and class divisions is chillingly unsettling.

Mark Steyn:
All Senator Obama will say is that “I don’t think my church is actually particularly controversial.” And in that he may be correct. There are many preachers who would be happy to tell their congregations “God damn America.” But Barack Obama is not supposed to be the candidate of the America-damners: He’s not the Reverend Al Sharpton or the Reverend Jesse Jackson or the rest of the racial-grievance mongers. Obama is meant to be the man who transcends the divisions of race, the candidate who doesn’t damn America but “heals” it — if you believe, as many Democrats do, that America needs healing.
