I was shocked at the outrage of white republicans of a very mild benediction given by Rev. Lowery, and Obama who laughed and smiled during the infamous benediction is being called a racist. I cannot believe the false outrage of his very mild and innocent words. And by the way what a wonderful day for Obama, imagine that the most downtrodden and abused people in this country may be the very people that save this nation from disaster, I wonder at the wisdom of God, when he can take the despised of this world and elevate them in the eyes of everyone. I was so proud of him and Michelle a loving black couple and a true inspiration to hundreds of young people. I am so glad that the enemy Bush, and his nasty elitist are gone.

Yesterday, civil rights leader Rev. Joseph Lowery delivered the benediction at President Obama’s inauguration. At the end of the prayer, Lowery offered a light-hearted approach to a hopeful future absent of racial bigotry:

LOWERY: 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 back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right.

Right-wing talker Glenn Beck found Lowery’s blessing way too much to handle, however. On his new Fox News show yesterday, Beck compared Lowery to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, accused him of calling all of America “racist,” and asked, “Can you imagine anyone else saying something like that!?” Seeming to take personal offense at Lowry’s benediction closing, Beck made sure to inform his viewers that he doesn’t “hate minorities.”

He then chastised Obama, saying he “was shocked” that Obama “actually smiled when he said this and shook your head.” Watch it:


how could they call this racist?

the real rhyme is:
if your black get back
if your brown stick around
if your white your all right

if anything he tried hard to be inclusive. you can't win.

for some reason my youtube isn't showing up so I just put the link here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPMh9xv-CUk
