"They still the same white people"

Another newly revealed buddy of Obama, Reverend James Meeks, seems to be a little less radical that Rev. Wright. In contrast to Jeremiah Wright's "God damn America", Meeks prefers a more traditional "God damn those white people." Here he is blasting away at famous white guy and political machine operator, Richard Daley:

"We don't have slave masters. We got mayors. But they still the same white people who are presiding over systems where black people are not able, or to be educated."

"You got some preachers that are house niggers. You got some elected officials that are house niggers. And rather than them trying to break this up, they gonna fight you to protect this white man," Meeks said in a sermon tape which he later defended in an interview with Chicago CBS2 reporter, Mike Flannery.

It's amazing to me how these fine religious gentlemen can say whatever they please and the press just sits in the pew and says "Uh, huh. Well... Preach it! Amen." And the rest of us are neither shocked nor surprised. Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations.
