Responses to Barack Obama’s speech fall into four categories: 1) He hit it out of the park, I heard the angels sing, I saw history, he talked to me like I was an adult; 2) Too little, too late, he didn’t do enough to persuade racists to stop being racist. He isn’t much of a uniter; 3) Committed racist, insists Obama is a hater; 4) ___________. I don’t know anything about this last category, I just know it’s there. I’ll call it the blank category. I’m also guarding against being a bark eater about it.
Update: Interestingly, video clips of Rev. Wright’s controversial sermons haven’t technically reached “viral” status yet.
Chris Rock, I was thinking the exact same thing.
