Last Spring When Baarak Obam finally quit Rev. Wrights church after attending his church for 20 years he said :
"The person I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago."
Obama's recollection in his autobiography "Dreams from My Father" on pages 292 & 293 of the paper back edition describes his first time at Trinity United 20 years ago and the racest comments made by Reverend Wright:
"The title of Reverend Wright's sermon that morning was "The Audacity of Hope." He began with a passage from the Book of Samuel—the story of Hannah, who, barren and taunted by her rivals, had wept and shaken in prayer before her God. The story reminded him, he said, of a sermon a fellow pastor had preached at a conference some years before, in which the pastor described going to a museum and being confronted by a painting title Hope….
"It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks' greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…That's the world! On which hope sits!"
And so it went, a meditation on a fallen world. While the boys next to me doodled on their church bulletin, Reverend Wright spoke of Sharpsville and Hiroshima, the callousness of policy makers in the White House and in the State House. As the sermon unfolded, though, the stories of strife became more prosaic, the pain more immediate. The reverend spoke of the hardship that the congregation would face tomorrow, the pain of those far from the mountaintop, worrying about paying the light bill…
He Knew Reverend Wright was a racist from the very beginning and chose to attend his church for 20 years!.
