Hi alea,

What I was saying is that I can see a reason in this behavior to question Obama's philosophy.

Obama is a great orator and very intelligent, but he is also a politician so I would not expect to catch him in any overtly racist statements unless it is due a mistake ala Trent Lott.

And really, in spite of what I suspect was the impression given, I am not saying that he is a racist. I am saying that his admiration and support of a racist is going to be a problem for him in the general election. And it should be!
Racism is a real phenomenon throughout the world, and we in this country have been doing a very admirable job of combating it for quite a while now and I don't see reason to suddenly stick my head in the sand when I see a presidential candidate cosying up with a racist just because now it is black racism. It is just as ugly and as reprehensible as the white variety. Let's hear what Obama has to say about this.

Bottom line: he should have distanced himself from this man and his teachings. It would have been the right thing to do.

And alea, a question please. Do your Christian friends consistantly preach hate towards Moslems? If so you may want to do a little soul searching yourself. ;)

Regards,

x-point
