the final prayer

sometimes i am just so darn tired of the race card
and the race bashing
did the final prayer just HAVE to say that finally the white man would embrace what is right? i am offended. really. there are generations of "white men and women" who have done exactly that in this country. bad way to end it

Richard, this is what he said. And it wasn't using the race card. My goodness, I thought it was a great Benediction.

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 -- (laughter) -- when yellow will be mellow -- (laughter) -- when the red man can get ahead, man -- (laughter) -- and when white will embrace what is right.

Let all those who do justice and love mercy say amen.

Separating everyone into groups is racism. We are not all of these groups, we are Americans. We must think of ourselves in this manner at some point. Unity cannot truly happen without thinking of everyone as Americans. You simply cannot separate in order to unite! The problem is that racism is a business and it is something that people will USE to progress their opinions and get people involoved. It seems harmless enough but again, NO EMOTIONS ALLOWED!!
