    The civil rights movement "was always about becoming white," Wright said at the seminar.

    At another point, he said: "White folk done took this country. You're in their home and they're going to let you know it."

    According to the New York Post, Wright also alleged that the American education system is built to poorly educate black students "by malignant intent" and criticized civil rights leader Martin Luther King for advocating nonviolence.

    I was born white so I don't have to become white.

    Except in the fall, when they are red and brown. Green is my favorite color. Since you're my Facebook friend, you can probably figure out why. :tongue3:

    He got this part right anyway.

    The sorry state of education in Black schools is a product of white liberal racism.

    White liberals think that Blacks are born inferior and are incapable of learning so they create programs like ebonics.

    It's all part of the white liberal plantation mentality.

    I am not sure why people get these impressions...some white racist conspiracy. I don't know where that comes from.

    And my kids are white African Americans. Their mom is from South Africa. So, although she is white, she is African. Which calling a black man or woman born in America, African American is racist to me.

    I will apply for African American scholarships and grants for all my kids and see if they get turned down for being white.

    Jeremiah Wright will certainly have to answer to God for the blatant misuse of His name.

    Not that this guy has any idea who God is.

    Remember, folks...this was our President's "pastor" for two decades.

    Malcolm X taught that black people didn't need white people to make economic progress but that isn't politically correct so he was killed.
