(In) a speech given by Obama describ(ed) his religious conversion and praising the reverend Jeremiah Wright the minister of the Trinity United Church of Christ, the church which Obama attends. What you neglected to mention is that the Trinity United Church of Christ is a militant black church and Wright ( who is a friend of Louis Farrakhan) is so controversial that Obama had to disinvite him when he announced for president.The fact is that Obama, unlike Colin Powell, is not an assimilated black. Although raised by white grand parents as an adult he has strongly identified with the black community as first as an organizer and then state Senator. Furthermore his wife Michelle appears to have a chip on her shoulder when it comes to whites.
