I saw it coming a mile away. I truly and honestly did. Eventually, it’s going to get ugly. It’s been this way for quite some time, but Rev. Jeremiah Wright added gas to the fire. While Barack Obama later denounced the comments made, damage was done.
Let me make this clear. Wither we like it or not, we want to take this country into a new direction. I praised Obama for trying to make this one statement clear: we need to move forward, not backwards. If we keep using these pity issues, we will never move forward.
Edited: The footage from Rev. Jeremiah Wright was made in December 2007. It is not recent, and while the media did stated this, they are making this a "minor footnote".
