Reverend Wright continues to bash White America while the first major Black-American presidential candidate continues to insist that race is not an issue in the 2008 elections.

The reports how Sen. John McCain slammed Senator Obama for his relationship with Reverend Wright, and noted some new comments surfacing about Mr. Obama's former pastor. To view the latest Reverend Wright’s brouhaha, please click on the following link:

Rev. Wright: U.S. Marines Like Romans who Persecuted Jesus

Hear the Reverend Wright in his own words:

—    Wright: U.S. Government Lied about Pearl Harbor, AIDS


—    Wright: U.S. Is a Terrorist Nation

—    Wright: U.S. the Same as Al-Qaida

It would seem that Senator Obama stands by his pastor, Wright or wrong, oops, right or wrong.


Here is what the Washington Post reported about Senator Obama's reaction to the latest rants of Reverend Wright:

As Minister Repeats Comments, Obama Tries to Quiet Fray

Sen. Barack Obama again sought to distance himself from the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. yesterday after his former pastor capped a weekend media offensive with an appearance in Washington in which he revisited many of his most controversial comments.

"He does not speak for me," the Democratic presidential candidate said as he campaigned across North Carolina. "He does not speak for the campaign."

Obama aides said Wright had rebuffed their recent offers of public relations assistance. They stressed that they had no warning about a media blitz that included an appearance with Bill Moyers on PBS on Friday night, a nationally televised speech to the NAACP in Detroit on Sunday evening and yesterday's appearance at the National Press Club.

Wright, the former pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago who officiated at Obama's wedding and baptized his two daughters, became the center of controversy after clips from some of his most inflammatory sermons hit the airwaves earlier this year. In one sermon, delivered the Sunday after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Wright said that "America's chickens are coming home to roost" for its own acts of "terrorism." In another, he said blacks should sing "God damn America" instead of "God Bless America" to protest centuries of mistreatment.
