Wright, that un-American bastard. How is a tea party racist? I know the Libs keep throwing that around.

I believe both Wright and certain elements of the TP are racist. So I answered "other".

Nothing new.

Wright, along with his pupil hussein obama, are all out America hating racist. The people of the Tea Party are not racist. Most of the racist can be found among the left wingers and we see it every day on CD.

No option for both? I abstain my vote. Tea has many prejudices, not all of them have to do with racism. I'd venture to guess 10% of their grievance is about race, but the rest is misc. prejudice stoked by propaganda.

I love how right wingers keep using this Rev. Wright to try to discredit Obama- so basically the argument they use is that since Wright made some outrageous statements, and since Obama belonged to his church, Obama is somehow part of what he said-or must agree or believe with what he said-even though Obama disassociated himself from the church due to the things Wright said-

By that logic, anyone who belongs, or belonged, to a church that had a priest molesting children had something to do with that too-and must surely agree with him doing it- after all they were members of his church-and may have known the priest for years-

Oprah walked out of Wrights church , never came back. Many would do the same.

I would have walked out as well- after I realized that somehow I had found my way into a church-

Wright is just another example that any institution will have those members that are full of bigotry or hate- whether that institution is religious or secular- to judge those that belong to an institution of any kind by the actions or words of a few of its members is just narrowmindedness-
