Said this to end his benediction at the inauguration...

"We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to give back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right."

Obama seemed to me to be pretty inclusive of who he had speak at the inauguration, and overall I've been impressed with how he's handled himself so far. I did not vote for him, but I'm willing to give him a fair shake and see what happens.

I just think it was a very divisive way to end what was an otherwise decent (ableit kinda bland) benediction...

He had to give something for Fox News to complain about other than how much the inauguration cost....

Sounded like Rev Wright rhetoric to me. I wasn't suprised.

So what you're saying is that this guy is a closet conservative and wants all white people to be too?
