There's Nothing Wrong with Rev. Wright

From AlterNet, by Sean Gonsalves:

Good thing for Martin Luther King admirers -- blogs, talk radio, and 24/7 cable news "analysis" weren't around in the Sixties.

King might not have the status of patron saint in the temple of American civil religion. Then again, King is safely dead. While America may be the land of "second-chances," its people are definitely not the type to give props to a prophet while he or she is alive.

In criticizing U.S. policy in Vietnam, King said America was "one of the main purveyors of violence" in the world. Imagine King, with his sing-song black preacher cadence, saying that over and over and over again on CNN.

We need to get over and get up
It is time for all this shit to end. No, never will but that doesn't mean many have had enough.

This is my black and white thinking but it has nothing to do with race and all to do with the world as a whole. jmho
