Elder Veteran FreedomFighter
Speaks Truth To Power

Subtley, Rev. Lowery gives props to Liberation Theology, Black History of Resistance & Struggle and Rev Wright. Since his closing benediction there has been a ton of commentary... most of which has been negative by whitefolks and their negro allies. But, the millions of ordinary everyday Blackfolk and veteran Black activists who listened/watched knew what he was trying to do: That Barack Obama's rise to being the most powerful man on Earth comes out of a long history of Resistance and Struggle that Obama and the world must honor and never forget.

Rev. Lowery, in essence, did what any African Elder would do: Charge Obama with being a righteous being out to preserve and advance humanity. Anything short of that will be the work of the Devil capitalism loves.
