Giving the people exactly what they don’t want to hear

I think that I have gone gay for Barrack Obama. I want to marry him and have his one quarter black babies.

Of course I love the landmark speech about race in America that he recently made in response to a video of his former pastor saying things along the lines of, “They do all that to us and then tell us to say God Bless America? Well I say God Damn America. God Damn them for what they did to us.”

He handled it all in such a bold non-politician kind of way.

So you probably know about that speech, but you may not know about another incredibly brave speech that he made in January where he called out a mostly black audience on homophobia, antisemitism and xenophobia.

You can read about it and see the video here:
