Obama gets radical before all black crowd.


Obama rabble rouses at Black college. Obama seems to justify post-Katrina looting and violence, as well as the 1992 Rodney King Riots that left 55 dead, in his speech. Obama also brings his pastor on stage. His pastor is known for radical Black separatism and claiming White people invented the AIDS virus to hurt Blacks.

`Those ‘quiet riots’ that take place every day are born from the same place as the fires and the destruction and the police decked out in riot gear and the deaths,” Obama said. “They happen when a sense of disconnect settles in and hope dissipates. Despair takes hold and young people all across this country look at the way the world is and believe that things are never going to get any better.”

He argued that once a hurricane hits or a jury renders a not guilty verdict, “the frustration is there for all to see.”

Obama, who is bidding to become the first black president, took the stage after a succession of ministers repeatedly brought the crowd to its feet, singing, praying and swaying to music.

Repeatedly, with evangelical zeal, he raised issues that roused the crowd: increasing the minimum wage and teacher pay, funding for public schools and college financial aid for the poor, ending predatory lending and expediting the reconstruction of New Orleans and the Mississippi coast.

He introduced his own pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Chicago’s Trinity United as “Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian.” He credited Wright with introducing him to Christ, and peppered his speech with Scriptural references, at one point invoking the opening lines of the Lord’s Prayer.
