Rev. Jeremiah Wright Quotes

“The world is controlled by power, military might, controlled by kings, and kingdoms, the elites controlling resources and crushing the poor and powerless,” Wright said on the evening of Nov. 17 at the Vanderbilt Divinity School. “God sees an alternative world than a world of exploitation, war, racism, sexim, heterosexism and facism. A world not of miseducation and mass incarceration and health only for the rich and the rape of the earth.”

“Africans were victims of slavery and colonialism and they continue to be victims of the consequences of slavery and colonialism…through sanctioned genocide, through 247 years of lethal chattel slavery in the United States, through 500 years of racist teaching, black lives never matter, just black bodies for the slave trade. Black bodies for the sugar plantations in the Caribbean, black bodies for cotton plantations in the United States, black bodies in sports, black bodies in prostitution, black bodies in the 3/5ths compromise in 1787, black bodies incarcerated for profit and political power in 2015. Never fully human, no mind, no rights.” – Nov. 17 at the Vanderbilt Divinity School

“The field of education reinforces racism, white supremacy, white privilege and exceptionalism upon which western civilization is built…” – Nov. 17 at the Vanderbilt Divinity School

“We are fighting a three headed demon: A demon of racism, a demon of militarism, and a demon of capitalism.” – Nov. 17 at the Vanderbilt Divinity School

No one in the Obama administration will respond to me, listen to me, talk to me or read anything that I write to them. I am ‘toxic’ in terms of the Obama administration. – in February 18, 2010 letter to Joseph Prischak Africa 6000 International in Eerie, PA

“I am ‘radioactive,’ Sir. When Obama threw me under the bus, he threw me under the bus literally! Any advice that I offer is going to be taken as something to be avoided. Please understand that! – in February 18, 2010 letter to Joseph Prischak Africa 6000 International in Eerie, PA

Them Jews aren’t going to let (Obama) talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office. …They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. – 2009

“Not God Bless America, God Damn America” sermon – April 13, 2003

The British government failed, the Russian government failed, the Japanese government failed, the German government failed, and the United States of America government, when it came to treating her citizens of Indian descent fairly, she failed. She put them on reservations. When it came to treating her citizens of Japanese decent fairly, she failed. She put them in internment prison camps. When it came to treating her citizens of African descent fairly, America failed. The government put them in chains. She put them on slave quarters, put them on auction blocks, put them in cotton fields, put them in inferior schools, put them in sub-standard housing, put them in scientific experiments, put them in the lowest paying jobs, put them outside the equal protection of the law, kept them out of their racist bastions of higher education, and locked them into positions of hopelessness and helplessness. The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three strike law, and then wants us to sing God Bless America…no, no, no

Not God bless America, God damn America. That’s in the Bible, for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating her citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme. The United States government has failed the vast majority of her citizens of African descent. Think about this, think about this.

For every one Oprah, a billionaire, you’ve got 5 million blacks who out of work. For every one Colin Powell, a millionaire, you’ve got 10 million blacks who cannot read. For every one Condoskeeza Rice, you’ve got 1 million in prison. For every one Tiger Woods, who needs to get beat, at the Masters, with his cap, blazin’ hips playing on a course that discriminates against women. God has his way of bringing you up short when you get to big for your cap, blazin britches. For every one Tiger Woods, we got 10,000 black kids who will never see a golf course. The United States government has failed the vast majority of her citizens of African descent.

“Chickens Coming Home to Roost” sermon – September 16, 2001

I heard Ambassador Peck on an interview yesterday, did anybody else see him or hear him? He was on Fox News, this is a white man, and he was upsetting the Fox News commentators to no end. He pointed out, did you see him John, a white man, and he pointed out, an ambassador, that what Malcolm X said when he got silenced by Elijah Mohammed was in fact true, America’s chickens…are coming home to roost. We took this country by terror, away from the Sioux, the Apache, the Arowak, the Comanche, the Arapahoe, the Navajo. Terrorism. We took Africans from their country to build our way of ease and kept them enslaved and living in fear. Terrorism. We bombed Granada and killed innocent civilians, babies, non-military personnel. We bombed the black civilian community of Panama with stealth bombers and killed unarmed teenagers and toddlers, pregnant mothers, and hardworking fathers. We bombed Qaddafi’s home and killed his child. Blessed are they who bash your children’s head against a rock. We bombed Iraq. We killed unarmed civilians trying to make a living. We bombed a plant in Sudan to payback for the attack on our embassy, killed hundreds of hardworking people, mothers and fathers who left home to go that day not knowing that they would never get back home. We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon and we never batted an eye. Kids playing in the playground, mothers picking up children from school, civilians, not soldiers, people just trying to make it day by day.

We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and Black South Africans and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.
