is interesting.  Barack Obama is being attacked for betraying “the Black counter-narrative of American history” which Obama supported as contributor to Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church.  A taste:

Barack Obama, whose disdain for what he calls the “excesses
of the 1960s and 1970s
” is palpable, seeks to eradicate all vestiges of
Black self-determination, root and branch. The Senator has never made a secret
of his intentions, dating from his 2004 Democratic National Convention
declaration that “there is no Black America,” to his categorical rejection
of the Black counter-narrative of American history, as preached by Rev.
Jeremiah Wright and understood by most African Americans.

Obama has revealed himself as a rabid nationalist of the
standard, white America variety. “I categorically denounce any statement that
disparages our great country,” says Obama – which pretty much says it all. The
candidate has repeatedly telegraphed his contempt for any worldview that fails
to glorify the U.S. rise to global dominance – a ritual that collides instantly
with truth as it actually exists, with history as Black people have known it,
and with Black aspirations to make their own way in the world unencumbered by
the burden of white lies.
