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.
