Obama's Minister Rev. Wright Says Criticism Is Attack on Black Church

Barack Obama's longtime pastor says he hopes the controversy will have a positive outcome and spark an honest dialogue about race in America. Wright says black church traditions are still "invisible" to many Americans, as they have been throughout the country's history.

Wright spoke at the National Press Club before the Washington press corps and a supportive audience of black church leaders beginning a two-day symposium.

He says the black church tradition is not bombastic or controversial, but different and misunderstood by the "dominant culture" in the United States.

    Regarding Rev. Wright. The only racism that I see these days are Black racist against whites. Slavery happened a long time ago - GET OVER IT!! Oh, by the way. Nice 10,000 sq.ft house on a golf course in a rich white gated community Rev. Wright. Just another example of how the White Man is keeping the black man down ah? Why don't you take another trip with your buddy Louis Faracon to Libia and just stay there if this country is so evil.
