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...

Listen more closely, my friends....

"when white...will embrace what is RIGHT...."

Hear hear!

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

I thought it was an odd line to say as well, but since KK pointed out that that's his trademark line, I guess it makes much more sense.

Does it ever stop flowing from you? You're 25 years old, how do you know he's been saying it since the 60s?
