    You can't believe everything the media tells you about this. When Wright talks about Jesus being Black and the Romans being rich white people, he's using a social reference, not a racial reference. In terms of Black theology, Black is a way of life, and White represents the wealthy elites that, for instance, fought tooth and nail to perpetuate segregation.

      The media hasn't told me anything.  I've seen several of the videos myself.  He's preaching hate.  It has nothing to do with the stuff about Jesus being black.  As a matter of fact, Jesus probably did have dark skin.  Open your eyes!  It's hate speech.  It's not okay, no matter who does it.  Trying to excuse stuff like that is the reason America despises phony liberals.
