People are often defined by the friends they associate with. Jeremiah Wright has been a good friend of Barack for the past 20 years.
Let us review some of these videos of his good friend Jeremiah Wright.
In this first video Jeremiah Wright again refers to the United States of America as "The United States of white America"
The video shows the interviewer questioning why Jeremiah's Church preaches "commitment to the black family, adherence to the black work ethic, strengthening and supporting black institutions, pledging allegiance to all black leadership, embrace the black value system"
He asks Jeremiah if we said "white" instead of "black" that would be racist?
This is so very true. Again, before we can work on racism, all races must stop making these statements.
Jeremiah says Obama had to distance himself from his previous statements, implying that he really agrees with his statements.
Someone asked him if he really believes that America created the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color.
He did not deny it and said America is capable of doing anything it wants to.
Jeremiah Wrights New House

“According to documents obtained from the Cook County Register of Deeds, Wright purchased two empty lots in Tinley Park, Ill., from Chicago restaurant chain owner Kenny Lewis for $345,000 in 2004.
Documents show Wright sold the property to his church, Trinity United, in December 2006, with the proceeds going to a living trust shared with his wife, Ramah.
The sale price for the land was just under $308,000, about $40,000 less than Wright’s original purchase two years earlier.
Public records of the sale show Trinity initially obtained a $10 million bank loan to purchase the property and build a new house on the land.
But further investigation with tax and real estate attorneys showed that the church had actually secured a $1.6 million mortgage for the home purchase, and attached a $10 million line of credit, for reasons unspecified in the paperwork.
There is apparently nothing wrong with that, according to non-profit tax expert Jack Siegel of Charity Governance Consulting, who examined public documents FOX News obtained from the Cook County Register of Deeds and the Village of Tinley Park.
“At least looking at it from a public document standpoint, there’s clearly not a problem that jumps out or some sort of wrongdoing,” Siegel said. Siegel characterizes the transaction as unusual, however, because of the way Wright sold the property to Trinity and the way the deal was financed, with the attached $10 million line of credit.
Because churches are classified as private businesses, Trinity isn’t required to reveal its intended use for the line of credit. Nor, because it’s a non-profit entity, is it required to provide that information to the IRS.”
Barack Obama has attended Jeremiah’s church for the past 20 years. Jeremiah Wright is the pastor who married him and baptized his children.
I really cannot believe that Obama had not heard of Jeremiahs beliefs and opinions prior to the current scandal.
Obama had no problem associating himself with Jeremiah before he started his campaign. He even asked Jeremiah for advice before running.
If he did not believe what Jeremiah was preaching, then he should have disassociated himself from him at the beginning of his campaign.
That leaves only two possible conclusions:
1. He believes what Jeremiah is preaching or
2. He did not think it was important enough to disassociate himself from Jeremiah at the beginning of his campaign.
Either way, does that make for a good president?
