Obama and his wife have quit the 8 000-strong congregation of the Trinity United Church of Christ. His decision comes just days after Father Michael Pfleger, who is white, is said to have mocked Hillary Clinton.
Pfleger said that Hillary, as a white woman and Bill Clinton's wife, felt that she was entitled to the democratic party's nomination for president.
If you are growing tired of the circus show that is the race for the nomination between Obama and Hillary you are not alone. I find it entertaining only because of the racial politics that are being played out.
But if you believe Obama there are no racial politics. He is supposedly about change and the fortitude to work hard and stand for principle no matter what.
Well, ummmmmm this does not mean that he will not turn his back on a close friend who was his pastor and mentor because some white sensibilities were scratched.
Now he has walked out of his church, and the community that supported him for years.
You see broer. Obama will turn his duplicitous ass on just about anything, well except whiteness.
I am not surprised. Are you?
And, are you surprised that the queen of talk, Oprah, is losing support among white viewers since her endorsement of Obama?
Now if white folks will turn their backs on the modern iteration of Aunt Jamima, what you think they gonna do in the presidential election?
Like my friend Eugene likes to say, "there is a lot of pain to come."
McPain that is!
