Obama, Wright And Black Liberation Theology


Obama, Wright And Black Liberation Theology


R.E. Prindle


     In his title Black Theology & Black Power of 1969 the originator of Black Liberation Theology, James H. Cone, quotes Abraham Lincoln on page 10:

     I will say that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the black and white races- that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, not of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.  And inasmuch they cannot so live, while they do remain together, there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.

     And you think the South assassinated Abraham Lincoln? 

     There can be no equivocating that Mr. Cone, Mr. Wright and Mr. Obama believe the opposite.  I do not think they are wrong from their point of view, Mr. Cone reasons accurately and well, but neither I nor any thinking White person can accomodate BLT.  I stand with Abraham Lincoln and opposed to Barry Obama et al.  We have an irreconcilable difference.

     Lincoln also said that the nation could not exist half free (States) and half slave (States).  That irreconcilable difference could only be resolved by a long costly civil war however the elimination of the slave States was not the elimination of the black and white problem.  That was only exacerbated.

     In accordance with Lincoln’s thought the US today cannot continue to exist half black and half white in equality.  One or the other must exercise superiority over the other.  This problem can no longer be avoided.  We are at end game as Black Liberation  Theology acknowledges..

     At present the war is being waged on the Stealth political level with Africans in collaboration with their Liberal allies and corrupt judges at all levels of courts who sneak riderss into bills disenfranchising Whites in favor of Blacks.  The corrupt Judges construe all laws to advance the Black agenda of superiority.  The leading edge of the disenfranchisement of the White male is the so-called anti-Hate laws and Affirmative Action.  Both give to the African that which they are not entitled by their abilities.

     Mr. Cone acknowledges that the sturggle is to the death.  In words echoing the program of the New Abolitionist Party Mr. Cone says that it is. All italics his.

     The same is true of the words “Black Power.”  To what “object” does it point?  What does it mean when used by its advocates?  It means complete emancipation of black people from white oppression by whatever means black people deem necessary.

     And Black Liberation Theology deems the means to be the complete elimination of White people.  Mr. Obama sat for twenty years absorbing this Black Liberation Theology of Mr. Cone as understood by the Reverend Wright.  I care little that Mr. Wright said ‘Goddamn America.’  I would expect him too. The logic of his position demands it.  I do feel his pain and even sympathize I hope he can feel mine and sympathize with it.  Mr. Obama cannot claim that he didn’t know he was listening to Black Liberation Theology nor can Michele Obama.

     But, as Mr. Cone means that when the battle is over only one side will be left standing in his version of the latter day San Domingo Moment I see absolutely no reason to diagree with him.  I am one with Abraham Lincoln.  This nation cannot exist half slave and half free.  I do not intend to exchange places with the Africans.  I do not intend myself or mine to be the half that is slave.
