From the Inauguration Benediction Prayer:
Rev. Joseph E. Lowery’s prayer began with the third verse of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” a hymn known as the “black national anthem.” Several sentences later, he repeated a phrase from another hymn, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.”
Then he cracked a few jokes: “We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around (people started to laugh at this point), when yellow will be mellow (more laughter), when the red man can get ahead, man (more laughter) and when white will embrace what is right.”
Where is the indignant cry of racism from the media?
I’m just saying…
