Obama speaks directly to the Wright comments
Honestly, why didn't we examine Huckabee's sermons during his campaign, or the head of the Mormon church and his beliefs when Mitt Romney ran, or Hagee's "whore of Babylon" remarks about the Catholic Church after his welcome endorsement of McCain? White America is so unfamiliar with black experience, with the theology that formed the civil rights movement that they are shocked by this speech (and the "damn America" comments of Rev. Wright do go beyond what most of us can tolerate).
If Obama survives this firestorm, he will be our next president. If he doesn't, then America really isn't ready for change after all.
