We have been asked by many of our readers for the URL address of where they could find President Obama’s eulogy. Apparently, you folks didn’t think it was going to be great so you were doing other things while this incredible statement was being made. At the end, President Obama was referred to as “the Rev. President” by all of those on the stage – mostly AME pastors.
Incredibly, almost all of those pastors were male – in spite of the racism and sexism this entire event was decrying and which caused the death of Rev. Pinckney and 8 others being remembered. Sometimes, we are our own worst enemies in this Civil Rights fight. I remember the all male public face of the Civil Rights Movement when Dr. King was its acknowledged head. Women were pushed aside when the press appeared. Those human failings, however, do not negate the hard work that has been done and needs to continue to be done, we just hope it will be done in a more “Civil Rights” way the next time. We would say – don’t bash others for their racism while your sexism is on display for all to see – change it all. God forgive us all!
