Rev. Wrong: USA, the land of the oppressed and hopeless
As Reverend Wrong weaved his beguiling case of woes why blacks in America have no chance of success, I could just picture black men and women believers saying to themselves, "Why try? If a Minister of G-d says this country is evil and is inventing viruses to kill us, we may as well get whatever joy we can off the streets instead of pounding them for jobs, sales, educations, business opportunities," etc., etc., etc.
My therapist said, "Weinbaum, for the 15th time, YOU'RE NOT PARANOID!" My response? "So, YOU'RE ONE OF THEM!"
Reverend Wrong preaches the audacity of paranoia. Then he creates his own self-fulfilling prophecy. Those who attempt to break loose become traitors to the cause and have cursed his "Mama."
The bad reverend has concealed the truth. Worse, he blasphemes the L-rd by taking His word out of context. He casts America as determined to cheat and murder blacks. Wrong goes out of his way to prove his theory as he summoned his Hellish fleet of Winnebagos to run over Obama's successful campaign; just as Barack was about to enter the promised land, President of the United States of America and leader of the free world.
Despite his warnings about the wickedness of the HIV wielding "U.S. of KKK-A," how could he explain Barack's nomination, less election to president of that "damned" country? It may just show him for the blasphemer Wrong truly is.
How to make millions preaching hopelessness to the 'hood
Just one question: If things are so bad here, why hasn't the Reverend and his friend, Black Islam Minister, Louis Farrakhan, led a movement of black Christians and Muslims to a friendly country? There's no doubt, based on their famous "Million Man March" series they could gather up the afflicted.
One can imagine fabulous destinations like Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Liberia, Sudan, Iran, Libya, and many other countries that would have the kinds of opportunities for these tortured victims of this "rich white man" led country.
These poor souls could immigrate and get a shot at a grand existence; the kind of life where after years of hard work, one could build a multi-million dollar estate attached to a racially pure (white) country club golf course, away from the 'hood.
Now I'm really mixed up. If things are so awful, how has Reverend Wrong, our living example of the above, able to afford that mansion in this very country, the malicious USA?
The truth is that preaching hopelessness to blacks put people in the pews, bucks in the collection plates, and anti-American sermon CDS flying off the shelves to their destinations all over the world.
On Monday, in front of the press and adoring crowd of like-minded black ministers, Wrong destroyed the reputation of Christians of color by appointing himself spokes-preacher for all black churches.
To the blind adulation of many church leaders in that room, he made his case. Disagree with him? Them's fightin' words! How dare you talk about his church goin' Mama?!
I know for a fact that many blacks don't believe the garbage spewing from Wrong's mouth. How? They told me.
They have and are achieving success. These blacks pursued education. Some are now business moguls, high paid lawyers, civil rights leaders, and a Supreme Court Justice. One that I haven't spoken to is now former parishioner, and a delegate or so away from his party's presidential nomination, Barack Hussein Obama.
Want a dialogue about race? Fine. Subject? Some black churches need to come out of the 19th century and deal with the reality of opportunity for their parishioners, not just past racial sins of the USA. There will always be racists, but the country is about as color blind as it's ever been and moving forward.
Besides, a window of opportunity won't open itself. The opportunities for all Americans are massive.
Me? I'm verklempt.
I'm mourning for Obama's flatlining campaign.
