Did you know that if you're "white" you embrace what's wrong? You are according to Rev. Joseph Lowery who gave the inaugural benediction prayer yesterday that is sparking rage across the internet. He concluded with;
"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around – when yellow will be mellow – when the red man can get ahead, man – and when white will embrace what is right."
Well, it didn't take long for the race card to be pulled. Even knowing it hearkens back to an old song about equality, it has no place in an inaugural prayer that is supposed to unite a nation. If' we're all equal, why the mention of black, brown, yellow, red and white? And why then the implication that "white" doesn't embrace what is right?
Racist prayer and a botched Oath of Office all on day one. Taste of things to come?
