There's white racist DNA running through the synapses of his or her brain tissue. They will kill their own kind, defend the enemies of their kind or anyone who is perceived to be the enemy of the milky white way of life.— Jeremiah Wright
The most colorful Jeremiah Wright quotes that will inspire your inner self
No, no, no, not God bless America — God damn America!
Them Jews aren't going to let (Obama) talk to me.
I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office. ...They will not let him talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is.
The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied.
Jesus was a poor, black man who lived in a country and who lived in a culture that was controlled by rich white people. The Romans were Italian - which means they were Europeans, which means they were white - and the Romans ran everything in Jesus' country.
In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01.
White America and the western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just 'disappeared' as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.
(The United States) is the same as al-Qaeda, under a different color flag, calling on the name a different God to sanction and approve our murder and our mayhem!
It gets to be a problem when I decide one position should be the law for everybody. In public life, we [people] have to find a way to live together even though we disagree - and some things we will never agree on. But we've got to leave this I'm-going-to-kill-you-because-you-don't-believe-what-I-believe attitude behind.
We [people] need to stop lumping folks together and start living together.
Otherwise, we're going to kill each other off because you don't believe what I believe. That's crazy.
White folks' greed runs a world in need.
A woman decides about her body and her God is her business.
Women who are pro-life can be just a good a Christian as a woman who is pro-choice and vice versa. You can be a good Christian and be pro-life. You can be a good Christian and be pro-choice.
The stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yard! America's chickens are coming home to roost!
Barack Obama says what he has to say as a politician.
I say what I have to say as a pastor. But they're two different worlds.
Being at odds with policies is nothing new to me.
I think one of the things the church service means is hope.
I continue to be a pastor who speaks to the people of God about the things of God.
America is still the No. 1 killer in the world.
We started the AIDS virus. We are only able to maintain our level of living by making sure that Third World people live in grinding poverty.
God damn America for treating her citizens as less than human!
Faith in public life does not mean that God tells you to bomb another country or to go get Saddam Hussein. Faith in public life means that every child, regardless of their religious belief, should have health care and be able to go to school. Because my faith saying I can bomb Iraq is the same as your faith saying you can take over a passenger plane and fly it into the World Trade Center.
You should understand that private faith does not force public decisions.
That's how you work at compromise. I haven't given up what I believe, but I live in community - in a city, state, nation, and world - with people who don't believe what I believe. That doesn't make them defective or inferior.
Faith should be pulled into the public arena when it affects how we live.
If it doesn't, it does no earthly good. What does my faith say about the fact that a girl can't be a nuclear physicist because she's black and from the inner city? My faith says, no, that's not what God intended. It pulls it back into the public arena the idea that there's got to be something fair for all of us.
The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing "God Bless America." No, no, no, God d*mn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people. God d*mn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God d*mn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.
Don't tell me about heaven. What about in this life, that there is a better way, that this is not in vain, that it is not Edward Albee or Camus's absurd, the theater of the absurd, it is not Shakespeare - "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing" - that life has meaning and that God is still in control, and that God can, and God will, so people of goodwill, working hard, do something about the situation? We can change.
We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost.
White folk done took this country. You're in their home, and they're gonna let you know it.You are not now, nor have you ever been, nor will you ever be a brother to white folk and if you do not realize that, you are in serious trouble.
Barack Obama's a politician, I'm a pastor. We speak to two different audiences.
I do what I do. Barack Obama does what politicians do.
I think that criticism is unjustified.
It's a cute term, but noone shouldn't be criticized for who he is.
