Presidential Candidate and Senator Barack Obama has now been tied to organizing and marching in the Million Man March with his pastor Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan. Earlier Obama claimed that he didn't accept the endorsement of Farrakhan, but having worked with him in the past this plays as just pure political theater.
To climb to the heights of power that Obama has, he needed help along the way. The reality is that the help that Obama has had has been through the extremists in the black community that hate America, are anti-Semites and espouse hate at every turn.
Now that he has been called on the company he keeps, Obama figures he can write it off with a few statements and press releases. Everybody knows though that in the end he owes these men favors and that when put in an even greater position of power he will be made to pay up.
Is this really what we want in a president?
The statement has been made time and time again that this is an important presidential race, a turning point in our countries history. While I don't fully believe that, as every generation thinks that theirs is the most important in history, I do believe that this man has entirely too much racial baggage and contacts to actually act in the best interests of this country as a whole.
And lest you forget that Obama also marched with the illegal aliens through our streets in the May day marches and presides over a sanctuary state that openly flaunts ignoring federal laws regarding illegal immigration.
In addition to all of these actions, Obama has plagiarized speeches even going so far as to use the words of Malcolm X in speeches like "you've been bamboozled. You've been hoodwinked.". Also Obama claims that after belonging to a church for 20 years he has never heard his pastor Jeremiah Wright use racially inflammatory language or make anti-American statements.
It really boggles the mind that all of this can be ignored.

But that's not all...
In 1995, Barack Obama helped organize the Million Man March in Washington with anti-Semite and America-hating racist Louis Farrakhan:
In 1995, along with other prominent black leaders such as Al Sharpton and Barack Obama, Farrakhan helped lead the Million Man March on Washington. A second march, called the Millions More Movement, took place in 2005.

This is total BS. I originally joined Trinity in 1980 and subsequently joined the NOI in 1986 and have been a member ever since. Rev. Wright nor Obama had absolutely no hand in the planning process of the MMM. Actually Rev. Wright had originally opposed the march until he was convinced that it was not a "Muslim" event, as did several Christian ministers. When he saw that several of his colleagues were going(such as Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu, Ben Chavis etc.) he organized buses, but that was the extent of it. As I recall, he didn't even speak on the program. This article has been created for the sole purpose of putting Obama in a negative light. Racism is what Black people and other indigenous peoples of this Earth have been faced with for the last 500+ years. Everything from the transatlantic slave trade, slavery, lynchings, denial of education, the KKK, Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment etc. etc. etc.. All I have to ask of white folks who ignore these obvious realities of America is..."What America do you live in?" Resisting racism, is not racism. Removing a shoe from ones throat is not violence. What would you say to a rape victim who fought her attacker in such a way that caused his eventual death...would she inturn become the rapist?...could she even? We really need to discuss race in this country, cause white folks don't have a clue.

To: Talib -- your church is apparently fond of the racist, Jew hating Louis Farrakhan, that they thought enough of him to give him the "distinguished" Dr. Rev. Jeremiah Wright Lifetime Achievement Award. Lifetime achievement of WHAT?!? And, Michelle Obama participated in at least one panel that I know of with Farrakhan and his wife, "Mother" Farrakhan. Everyone, Google Michelle Obama 2004 Rainbow Coalition Farrakhan photo. I would never share the stage with either of those two unless I sympathized with Muslims and the hateful rhetoric of Farrakhan. You are the company you keep, and the Obama's keep some very questionable company. They are not fit to visit the White House much less live in it! And one more thing -- yes, racism has existed for hundreds of years, which is sad and is wrong, but when you say that it's implied that that means racism of whites against blacks. I'm white and was raised to respect all people and cultures, yet in my 46 years on this earth, most of my interactions with black people have not been pleasant, even when I tried to be friendly. The black people with with the chip on their shoulder and who seem to want to constantly bang on the racism drum need to look at themselves instead of blaming everyone else. This country has come a long way in the past 150 years as Obama wouldn't have gotten to where he is now if America was so racist as you assert. By the way, several of my white ancestors died in the Civil War fighting for the freedom of blacks, so you're welcome.
