Lowery Shows Racism in Inaugural Benediction

By Maggie M. Thornton

Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery likes the spotlight and today he used it for everything it's worth - which in this caseis the opportunity to speak directly to the entire nation.

Lowery, speaking just minutes after President Obama was sworn in, prayed for a day when:
"black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can sticks around, when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right."
How do you feel about being prayed over in front of the entire Nation and World, asking that you and I, the "Whites" of this country, will "do what's right?"

Can you imagine praying in this manner for Blacks?

Is this what we have to look forward to from the Obama administration...hateful racist rhetoric about Whites, devoid of truth and designed for controversy?

All over the internet, bloggers are asking: Is the inaugural benediction racist? My answer: Hell Yes!

  2. I think that Whites are being extremely insesitive to African Americans. This is an emotional time for us, as now one of our people are running the country. Now every innocent comment will be picked apart by racist Whites. Get over it, and try showing some support rather than always hate!

  3. this isn't the first racist stunt this idiot has pulled. the last guy to comment is the same guy who thinks "you people" is offensive, but turn the mirror around and all of a sudden it's "get over it"

  4. Whether the comment was really racist may be a matter of opinion.

    It was, however, totally out of place in a presidential inauguration.

  5. Interesting that this has become a question of white vs. black, when so many other "colors" were mentioned. I have a couple of "brown" friends who are wondering if "brown can stick around" implies a blanket presumption of illegal imigration status. I also have one friend who is Denai (Navajo), and who is shaking her head that anyone would still use "red man" in any context, much less one like this. As for myself, I'm of oriental heritage, but I can't imagine why my mellowness - or lack thereof would be anyone's concern, much less an issue for an national prayer. Maybe it was supposed to be funny, but when you pray for specific things for those of a certain race, isn't that racist by definition? I'm willing to give the guy the benfit of the doubt since the rest of the prayer was really very nice, but sad that he marred it with an ending in such profoundly bad taste!

  6. My Navajo friend would also be shaking her head at how I spelled Dine. oops.

  7. It is your problem that you want to justify the words of racist Lowery and why a black president has not been elected before BO. BO is the only deserving candidate that I recall in the past 50 years. Every culture has had it's cross to bear. What Lowery said was offensive and inappropriate. You can make "white" of it if you choose to but I don't think that BO would agree with you either. You and your culture would be burning down buildings and rioting right now if it was turned around so don't play dumb.

  8. How in the world was this relevant in a prayer to God? Using his prayer to get up on a soapbox was highly inappropriate and borders on blasphemy. What is Warren had asked God to bless this "colored" family? Oh, I bet there would be an uproar about it! I would hope that President Obama will have something to say about this soon enough. Otherwise, our country can look forward to even more racism.

  9. He insulted Native Americans by calling them "Red Man" and took a swipe at Asians by telling them to "mellow". Rodney King at least had the right idea..."Can't we all just get along?"

  10. You know, He's not totally black? I mean why does that fact seems to be forgotten? Personally, i didn't vote for him, and don't agree with him, however he is our president. But i will say if these comments were made by a white preacher, the media would have jumped on the chance to blast this show of racism all over every channel. I don't care what color he is the comments are totally uncalled for!

  11. What a bunch of whiny crybabies. Grow a pair, read a book or two and take a vacation from your imaginary besieged enclave of righteousness. If you can't see that lowery's prayer was in the spirit of union and cameraderie, then you are 7ucking retarded.

  12. for the "crybabies" author- it's not imaginary- we all heard it on tv. It was obviously a jab at other races and it was not directed at God, whom which the prayer was supposed to be for. It was directed at the world and was very inappropriate. You yourself sound very bitter and judgemental.
