Johnson says, We Must Say The Words!

In class on Tuesday we gestured to the speech Barack Obama was scheduled to make about his pastor, Jeremiah Wright, in the context race/culture in America.

Regardless of who you might be supporting in the 2008 election, I hope you will take the time to watch or read Obama's speech. It is being lauded as one of the most direct and explicit acknowledgments of race this country has ever seen. It is deeply connected to the issues we have talked about in class. I know you will find it provacative and relevant, even if you have no connection to Obama as a candidate. I welcome and invite your comments!!

And I think Johnson would be pleased.
