In 2012 he was widely quoted as saying that

Quote:
I don’t know what kind of a n***** wouldn’t vote with a black man running,” Lowery extolled, according to the paper. “All that he did with the stimulus was genius. Nobody intelligent would risk this country with Romney.””
He gave the benediction address at the 2008 inauguration ceremony. where if you recall, he urged 'yellow' to be 'mellow.' Can't make this stuff up.

Report: Obama Inauguration Preacher Says ‘America Is Going To Hell In A Hand Basket’ « CBS Atlanta

Edit: Okay, I read the article ... but not a transcript of the remarks. He's a 91 year old man, and people that age say a lot of stupid/strange things. Which he did in those 2012 remarks. We can all form our own opinions about him and his sentiments.

So try again and post a link to the phrase you attributed to him saying...
Alright I see it.
