Jeremiah Wright, PBUH


Over at Free Republic, contributor “Timeout” posts this excerpt from a year-old article from The New Republic …

After many lectures like this, Obama decided to take a second look at Wright’s church. Older pastors warned him that Trinity was for “Buppies”–black urban professionals–and didn’t have enough street cred. But Wright was a former Muslim and black nationalist who had studied at Howard and Chicago, and Trinity’s guiding principles–what the church calls the “Black Value System”–included a “Disavowal of the Pursuit of Middleclassness.’”

Jeremiah Wright, a muslim?

This is the first I’ve heard of this. All the muslim references up til now have been directed at Obama. The defense of Wright as some kind of modern-day MLK began in earnest last week, but never a mention of his muslim past.

Jeremiah Wright, PBUH.

Here is a screenshot of the article, just in case it “disappears.” The excerpted paragraph is about 3/4 way down.

Update: More on J. Wright……….
# Dr. Wright is a student of the history of religions. His master’s degree from the University of Chicago is in that discipline and his area of concentration as an historian of religions was Islam in West Africa. While a student at the University of Chicago (U of C) he studied with the esteemed Islamic professor, Dr. Fazlur Rahman.

# Dr. Wright’s Master’s thesis at the Divinity School of the U of C was the Tijaniyya among the Bambara, the Fulbe and the Tuckolour. The Tijaniyya was a 19th Century Sufi movement (a sect of Sufism) which swept into West Africa during the period of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.

  1. I’m certain I’ve mentioned many, many times, that Wright was an active member of the NoI, and a good friend of Calypso Louie’s.

  9. You’re right, Swampie.
    All of his associations are suspect. I really don’t like his association with Al Abunimah and the International Solidarity Movement.

    Kansas was behind by nine points with two minutes left, and hit a three pointer with two seconds left to send it into OT.
    They won by seven in OT.
    Big win, great character display by the KU players and coaches.

Take my love, take my land. Take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free. You can't take the sky from me. Take me out to the black. Tell them I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea. You can't take the sky from me. There's no place I can be Since I've found Serenity......But you can't take the sky from me.
