So this is my problem with blogging, and you guys have to forgive me because I am new to this. A few days ago I took on Obama for his comments about anti-semitism and homophobia on the homefront. I was responding to excerpts from his speech, which gave the impression that he'd spent much of it chastising black folks. In fact it was about 30 seconds of a 34 minute speech--and a needed 30 seconds. I still maintain my criticism of Obama's stance on gay marriage. But I don't know how you watch this speech and aren't moved.
That said, one of the hard things about following Obama is that there is a section of the media that is more interested in his criticisms of black America, than anything else he's saying. I made the mistake of equating him with the critics.
