You can’t pick your family but you sure can pick your pastor, Obama.

Barack Obama said this: I can no more disown [Rev. Wright] than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother - a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.

I understand that Barack Obama’s grandmother is still living. To use one’s own grandmother in order to survive politically is crass, low and tacky. There is very little character in the man.
