On Sunday, January 20th, Senator Barack Obama delivered a speech at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Rev. Raphael Warnock is the new pastor of Ebenezer (seated behind Obama). I wrote about him in the related post below, "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'." Be sure to check it out after watching the YouTube clip on Senator Obama's speech.
A quote from the speech:
“For most of this country’s history, we in the African-American community have been at the receiving end of man’s inhumanity to man. And all of us understand intimately the insidious role that race still sometimes plays - on the job, in the schools, in our health care system, and in our criminal justice system.
And yet, if we are honest with ourselves, we must admit that none of our hands are entirely clean. If we’re honest with ourselves, we’ll acknowledge that our own community has not always been true to King’s vision of a beloved community."
