No Equality

I just caught a bit on a news show (not sure which one) that was covering Obama's pastor speaking at a celebration for Maya Angelou, having been invited by the priest of the Catholic church. The priest said, with a straight face, "there's nothing that Pastor Wright said that Martin Luther King didn't say in the 60's"

Really? I have never heard of MLK saying anything ignorant and hateful like the sermons of Jeremiah Wright. Did I miss those speeches in the archive?

In his search for equality, this priest is finding it where there is none - and I think Reverend King would be offended at the comparison.

If MLK were alive today, he'd be kicking the asses of Obama, Wright, Jackson AND Sharpton!

That would be something to see. I think most of the real civil rights pioneers, those who worked so hard, and through real danger against actual problems, would be flabbergasted at what this generation has done with their legacy.
