As my regular readers can tell, I've been a bit busy for the last few days. But even if I hadn't been, I would have found the shear volume (mean in both senses) of response to Barack Obama's revealed racial attitudes overwhelming; too much so to respond with little more than a dumbfounded "WTF?"
The main thing that fascinates me about his attitudes is how they may have been shaped by Black Liberation Theology--an ideology whose outlines have been visible in the black community for the several decades of its existence, but one which is just now showing its face to the outside world via Obama's presidential candidacy.
So I'm reading and reading and reading. And the good thing about that is that, occasionally, one hits the jackpot.
You might recognize the author's name.
And a Good Friday to you all.
