Sean Hannity continues to mention Jeremiah Wright’s name every night on Fox News, as if convinced that this eventually will destroy Barack Obama.
But if Hannity is truly shocked that a resentment of America’s racial past would be expressed in black churches, he’s stupider than he looks.
Here’s a contest. Click here and listen to a black preacher preach.
The first person to correctly name this preacher in the comments section here will win a prize.
The prize is a double CD from Smithsonian Folkways: “Voices of the Civil Rights Movement: Black American Freedom Songs, 1960-1966.”
One guess per person.
UPDATE (03/28/08): We have a winner. Lolo figured out that this preacher is the Rev. Jasper Williams.
The sermon, titled “I’m Black and I’m Proud,” is for sale at eMusic. It was recorded in the late 1960s.
I present it here to make the point (for those who need it explained) that talking about “white oppressors” from the pulpit didn’t start with Jeremiah Wright.
