Obama Easter Sunday with another Racist Pastor?

President Obama and his family went to Shiloh Baptist Church in D.C. for Easter services on Sunday. The mainstream media reported on his attendance and what his family wore, but they neglected to report on the strange racist views of the pastor of this church. Here we go again. First Jeremiah Wright now it is Rev. Wallace Smith. While he is not as fiery as Rev. Wright he still holds some bizarre views of the world and it was reported that President Obama could be seen nodding his head in approval through out the service.  In 2010 Rev. Wallace Smith said the country is still racist, that racist get their own shows on FOX and that Rush Limbaugh is the new KKK. Smith frequently preaches on race. He even included race remarks in the Easter message. I don't know how the constitutional clause which counted blacks in the south as 3/5's of a person fits into a Easter message but Smith wove it in. Last year at a speech at Eastern University Smith said "racism is alive and rampant in America, especially on the conservative airways".  I would agree with the first part of that statement Rev. Smith, but would ask you to look in the mirror to see who I consider as the one that is propagating it. At the same speech he also said Rush Limbaugh is a new breed KKK member. He went on to say "Now Jim Crow wears blue pin stripes … and he doesn’t have to wear white robes anymore, because now he can wear the protective cover of talk radio, or can get a regular news program on Fox. He doesn’t have to wear his white garments anymore.” People like Rev. Smith seem like extremely paranoid reverse racists. Mean while the President sat through this mans message on Sunday nodding in agreement to many points. When will people wake up? The old saying goes 'birds of a feather flock together'. If President Obama continually ends up listening and nodding in agreement to paranoid racist pastors doesn't this say something about his own views on race?
