Last Wednesday, CNN released a video of a sermon from Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s pastor. The sermon was said to be racially charged and anti-American.
Now CNN, along with some Republican strategists, is accusing Sen. Barack Obama of playing the race card to help obtain more of the black vote.
This propaganda has been on the news for almost six days.
Last Tuesday, Geraldine Ferraro, a member of the finance committee for the Clinton campaign said to a Californian newspaper that Obama would not be in this election if “he were a white man.” Clinton didn’t immediately discredit her comments and made no attempt to remove her.
It wasn’t until Ferraro resigned from her position that Clinton spoke out against her. There hasn’t been anything on CNN about Ferraro’s comments since.
Why is CNN wearing this whole racial issue out? Obama never brought up the issue of race – CNN did!
Obama made a public speech about Wright’s comments yesterday and immediately after a white CNN columnist said he hasn’t done enough to win the faith of people.
CNN acts like what Wright is preaching isn’t the truth. In his sermon he said Hillary has never been broke in her life or been told she wasn’t white enough.
The problem with CNN and other republican/Clinton/McCain supporters and every other white conservative is that the truth hurts.
Newsflash: Racism is alive and well whether someone does a sermon about it or not.
