Obama and Change

Barack Obama has focused his campaign message as one that will bring change. However, the change that he would bring could take this country back so many years with a racial role reversal.

While Obama has thwarted the internet rumors of himself being a Muslim, there is in no way that he can denounce what his spiritual learnings throughout life will have on his political stance. His spiritual education over the last 20 years has been nothing but dramatic. At a time when Barack was starting to become a community activist, Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. began the conversion of a religious skeptic to a regular church going man. Obama has credited Wright as being his spiritual adviser who conducted his marriage to Michelle, and baptizing his two daughters. He even brought him into his home so that their house could be blessed.

This story seems miraculous, considering where Barack got his start. It is not this story that brings to light the controversy, but it is what Trinity United Church of Christ stands for and preaches. Wright claims that America and the Christian faith are "White." He also refers to America as "the racist United States of America," and "the United States of White America." He blames America and the Caucasians for the problems of the world and also the suffering of African-Americans. These statements haven't been made within the last two to five years, but over the time at which he has stood at the pew. What else can be made of these statements? It gives us an even closer look into what is being taught and instilled into the individuals that attend services regularly.

The values that are taught in this church are that of what Wright has labeled as a "Black Value System." This "System" has a:

  • Commitment of God (where they will be given strength to be soldiers for Black freedom)
  • Commitment to the Black Community (The highest level of achievement for any Black person must be a contribution of substance to the strength and continuity of the Black of the Black Community - quoted off the TUCC website)
  • Commitment to the Black Family (where the developing person is to withstand warping by their racist competitive society)
  • Dedication to the Pursuit of Education (where they outline how Blacks should be educated to offer an increase to the Black Community)
  • Adherence to the Black Work Ethic
  • Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect (to be an instrument of Black Progress, and a model for Black Youth)
  • Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness" (where they consider themselves captives)

Interesting how the church's Black Value System makes NO reference to scripture and Christ. Also how when Blacks are referred to on their website, they are always capitalized in reference to their being higher than Caucasians. After all, the name of their church has Christ's name in it. Also, in the same document, they "Pledge Allegiance to all Black Leadership Who Espouse and Embrace The Black Value System. With this type of value system it is no wonder they offered their highest award to on of the most well known Black Supremacist, Louis Farrakhan. This highly provocative supremacist also makes a point to put his support behind Obama at an address during the Nation of Islam's annual Saviour's Day Convention saying, "You might say. 'Gee, I don't think Barack is Black enough.' He wasn't supposed to be." Is this a hint that Obama is a pawn in a larger scheme for these people? He then goes on to refer to him as Brother Barack Obama, and makes this comment: "I ask that we pray for our Brother, Barack Obama. I am not asking for votes. I am asking a Nation - not just the Nation of Islam, but all people of good will - to pray for this young man." He is not asking for ALL prayers, but of those who are of good will. And we know who that is based on the Black Value System that Wright and Farrakhan speak so vehemently of.

Recently, Mr. Obama "categorically denounce(s) any statement that disparages our great country or serves to divide us from our allies." He also believes "that words that degrade individuals have no place in our public dialogue, whether it's on the campaign stump or in the pulpit." Then says, "the sermons I heard him preach always related to our obligation to love God and one another, to work on behalf of the poor, and to seek justice at every turn." The obligation, according to the Black Value System that is taught in the church he has been a part of for 20 years, being the Blacks. The poor being the Blacks that were and are oppressed by the racist society of the United States of White America. And the justice being a contribution to the highest level of achievement.

Barack says that he has never been present when these "sermons" were being preached, but we know different thanks to Jim Davis of NewsMax. Mr. Davis was there along with Obama and his Secret Service detail was there to witness the opposite of his statement. Davis reports:

"Wright laced into America's establishment, blaming the 'white arrogance' of America's Caucasian majority for the woes of the world, especially the oppression suffered by blacks. To underscore the point he refers to the country as the 'Unites States of White America.' Many in the congregation, including Obama, nodded in apparent agreement as these statements were made."

Obama said that he has never been present during any controversial comments, but we know otherwise. He has been a part of this church for 20 years. His children have been raised in this church. Some of the worlds largest known Black Supremacists are speaking for his advancement. He has encompassed, along with his family, the Black Value System. Some say he's not Black enough. Others say he's not supposed to be. Do we want this country to be based off of the Black Value System? Do we want the change that Obama wants to bring?

Very enlightening. I was very interested to learn that Obama was witnessed listening to inflamatory preaching by Rev. Wright. I had not heard this yet on the news shows. I thought the quotes by Mr. Farakan concerning Obama were very news worthy also! Thank you for taking the time to researce this subject for us Mr. Stafford! James S. Hartley, Gower Missouri

It is my duty, as a citizen in this country, to make sure this information gets put out. I am so frightened that so many people still think Obama is qualified to be president. When will they wake up? Probably when it is too late!
