From Big Government:
In one sermon, which Wright published in 1995 in a collection entitled Africans Who Shaped Our Faith: A Study of 10 Biblical Personalities, Wright referred specifically to Bell’s protest against Harvard–the same protest that Obama supported in a video released by Breitbart.com last week.
The sermon repeats the main doctrine of Bell’s Critical Race Theory–that the United States was founded on racism, and that America remains irredeemably racist. Wright also attacked “Jewish lawyers,” comparing the Jews of Jesus’s [sic] time to “Klansmen” and describing Jesus as a racial provocateur. In 2008, Obama claimed that he had never heard Wright use anti-American or racist rhetoric from the pulpit, yet this radical, antisemitic sermon–among others–was in print, and likely available from the church, while Obama sat in the pews. He could not have missed it, nor pretended not to know about Wright’s views.
