I am an African American woman activist of the 50's & 60's and I did not vote for Mr. Obama because he took race off the table. For years , I was bitter because I saw the hatred of white people toward my ancestors, my husband, my children and myself. Thank GOD for the 'Black Church!' If it had not been for the ministers such as Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity, Rev. Daniels of Antioch Baptist, Jesse Jackson of Rainbow Push, I would have been one of those ranting, screaming, angry Black women that everyone has been so concerned about. These men and preachers in the Black churches have made it their priority to teach us what JESUS taught his disciples..to love your enemies and to pray for them. You can't hate anyone you are praying for. These Black ministers made it possible for millions of blacks to go to work each day and endure many on-the-job atrocities that we suffer to this day. Convinced that Barak had a personal agenda to run for president, I am now very proud of him today. He stood up for the one place that we have to go ...the sanctuary of the church. How do we spell relief? The Black Church on Wednesday nite Bible study, Friday nite prayer and Sunday morning services. The white media is treading on dangerous ground by attacking our churches and ministers. What you did in the South in the 50's & 60's causing 4 little black girls to lose their lives will not be tolerated today. Barak should NEVER have had to defend Jeremiah Wright. The young lady is correct. White media bias against anyone, not just Obama, should no longer be tolerated by any one. The media feeds this racial divide by reporting only the negative incidents. People of America, if we are going to do anything to close these racial gaps, we need to stop the elements that open them. If we really want the change Mr. Obama is discussing throughout his campaign, then let's get on the "Stop The Media" bandwagon. When they make these divisive comments, attack them...don't let those comments or stories stand. I notice that the media has not reported on the excellent programs Rev. Wright has put into place for children for the past 20 years. No one was teaching African American History in Chicago schools until Rev. Wright started. Not one of them has talked how Rev. Wright and Trinity Church has upgraded the entire neighborhood and community where the parishoners reside. If they won't report the good, we should not allow them to report the bad.
