A poem and a prayer.

TonyF's picture

Both stunk like "mustard-colored poop". The poem didn't rhyme, but the prayer did. I was not shocked when the right rev. used the event as an opportunity to once again, lambast the evil white man. I also found the cheers and applause during his "prayer" disgraceful.

Change is good however, because we no longer need be worried about the angry young black men committing any more crime because they will now become fine, upstanding citizens having been given that which they have craved for so long.

Life is good.

On a more somber note: I will support our new POTUS (didn't vote for him, but he is my President now) and pray for him to have the courage and guts to do what is right and good for us ALL.

p.s. Aretha sounded bad, is she ill? I surely (don't call me Shirly) don't want to lose another legend.

I didn't watch any of the festivities, but your post and those below made me curious enough to look up the text of his benediction.

I see that people were concerned that an historic moment was marred by Justice Roberts' misstep in administering the oath. But then it was followed by a prayer that began with juvenile attempts at rhyme and then concluded with these words???

"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around ... when yellow will be mellow ... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen."

Setting the overt racism aside for a moment, this is just embarrassingly bad material to have been included in the events--like reciting a limerick as poetry at a funeral for a friend. Obama was likely praying a silent prayer of his own to hasten Lowery's "amen" and subsequent silence.

CNN offered an absurd commentary regarding the Obamas and their break from a certain stereotype of blacks. It included this bit of drivel:

Obama didn't shout at his wife, Michelle, to shut up. The first lady didn't roll her eyes and tell Obama to act like a man. No laugh track kicked in, no one danced, and no police sirens wailed in the background.... "They are not here to entertain us," says [Jamaal] Young, a New York Press columnist. "Michelle Obama is not sitting around with her girlfriends saying, 'My man ain't no good.' You're not seeing this over-sexualized, crazy black family that, every time a Marvin Gaye song comes on, someone stands up and says, 'Oh girl, that's my jam.' "

Unfortunately, the good reverend was there to resurrect all of this.

Thanks Muddle for sharing what was actually said. Sad -
- but I think he felt it was a hopeful statement of improved race-relations. The feelings of distrust and anger are still to close to the surface for this to have been included in his 'prayer'. The younger,enlightened generation will prevail.. . . And we'll move on.

"...embarrassingly bad material" is an apt description. I cringed when I heard it.

It seemed to me to highlight the dichotomy between the fading of the Lowery/Jackson/Sharpton era and the more post racial era of Obama milieu.

I cringed along with you. Keep in mind, Joe Lowery is not only old guard but sort of b-list old guard at that. The Obama people no doubt felt they had to include someone of that era but I would have preferred Andy Young. I believe he's an ordained minister and I think he would have been mesmerizing without being insulting to half his audience...

Was a bit cliche but sincere for him. That is the way he feels--right or wrong.
I don't criticize poetry much. I write some and I think most of the time it makes more sense than those by so-called experts.
It is my opinion that real poets write fuzzy, deliberately just so as to make us mortals feel inferior in not understanding a thing they write, usually.

Kinda like Philosophers!

That old fool didn't write that poem on his own. The idea and some of the specific words were taken from an old civil rights chant titled "Black, Brown and White". It was written by Big Bill Broonzy. Here is a copy of the lyrics:

Big Bill Broonzy Black, Brown And White lyrics

This little song that i’m singin’ about,
People you know it’s true
If you’re black and gotta work for a living,
This is what they will say to you,
They says, “if you was white, should be all right,
If you was brown, stick around,
But as you’s black, hmm brother, get back, get back, get back”
I was in a place one night
They was all having fun
They was all buyin’ beer and wine,
But they would not sell me none
They said, “if you was white, should be all right,
If you was brown, stick around,
But if you black, hmm brother, get back, get back, get back”
Me and a man was workin’ side by side
This is what it meant
They was paying him a dollar an hour,
And they was paying me fifty cent
They said, “if you was white, ‘t should be all right,
If you was brown, could stick around,
But as you black, hmm boy, get back, get back, get back”
I went to an employment office,
Got a number ‘n’ i got in line
They called everybody’s number,
But they never did call mine
They said, “if you was white, should be all right,
If you was brown, could stick around,
But as you black, hmm brother, get back, get back, get back”
I hope when sweet victory,
With my plough and hoe
Now i want you to tell me brother,
What you gonna do about the old jim crow?
Now if you was white, should be all right,
If you was brown, could stick around,
But if you black, whoa brother, get back, get back, get back

Here is the link

He added that jab at "whitey" to serve his own selfish purposes. Keeping the flames of racial problems fanned and burning hot is very lucrative for certain groups. Some people would lose their bully pulpits and even worse the ability to say whatever they want and be excused. And you think they will let it die a deserved death? Why would they?

Here is the bigger question though. Why in the world did Barry smile or chuckle (depending on the report you read) when he said it? Was he just excusing the marginalized old fool? Or was he agreeing? What a time for him to act presidential and stand up and say I reject and repudiate that remark at the end of that prayer. What a message that would send to people of every color. I guess that "change" isn't coming yet. His silence is DEAFENING....

Our middle-schooler came home yesterday and told us that many of the teachers had the classroom t.v.'s going so their students could watch the inauguration, live, in their classrooms, so thank you teachers for allowing our children this opportunity to be witness to this historic event!

However, our child told us that there was one teacher who made the comment to students in her classroom that she was surprised that Obama invoked "God" in the oath and in his speech because "Obama is a Muslim." You should have your teacher's certificate pulled, you imbecile! How dare you spew this crap in a classroom for your students, our children, to hear! Idiot.

Is there more to this story? Did I hear this wrong? Did any other parent hear about this? Someone please tell me this is NOT true before I end up calling the principal about this, I'm so irritated.

And another thing, Mrs. C., Obama is NOT a Muslim, you idiot. And if he was, so what...Muslim's believe in and worship God just like Christian's do - they just call God, Allah.

No, I don't care what religion our President holds in his heart. That has never been an issue for me. I saw the interview with Stephanopolis and know that Obama's words were twisted and used out of context by the media. Why doesn't this teacher know this?

Oh, just to amuse myself, I went to your link and entered the names of not only the teachers who's names began with "C" but also all employees here who's names began with "C" (15 names) and SURPRISE, found no one!
Upon reading some of your other rantings about the school system in Fayette County, it has become clear to me that you have way to much time on your hands, an over-inflated opinion of yourself, and that maybe we would all be better off if you considered moving to another school district.

Let's not use the same broad brush that the archaic Rev. Lowroad used when referring to others.

It appears to me that the 'content of their character' comments by Dr. King were lost by Rev. Lowroad. Many of us have moved beyond his shallow rantings. Most who rejected Obama did so for political reasons, not racial reasons. Clarance Thomas was certainly not celebrated, nor was Michael Steele or J.C. Watts, I assume because of political bent and not race. I think you have had a glimpse in to Rev. Lowroad's bitterness.

On the other hand - I appreciate David's mom and her comment below - but I would ask her not to be afraid to say he was flat out wrong and you reject him and not just that Dr. King would not have said it. We must all be willing to reject racism when we see and hear it and recognize racism is not confined to any single group of people.

I understand your anger about the STUPID STUPID STUPID prayer like rant of Rev Lowery. The White do right line was an embarrassment to blacks and a slap in the face to whites. But why all this broad brush "they" and "them" stuff? How often do blacks come up to either of you and say "you owe me X because I'm black." Let's make a deal: I won't invoke broad brush generalities or curse your names or likenesses when a white person does or says something stupid/criminal. And please show your blogging buddies the same consideration.

I'll give you an actual example: I commented and linked here about two events where white police officers shot unarmed black men.

I use race only for clarification, because these acts were not indicative of the training, thoughts, or beliefs of all police. As a matter of fact, I gladly bought two of New York's finest foo foo lattes at a Starbuck's at New York's JFK airport last weekend. Why? Because they earn their uniforms everyday. And they don't deserve to be under the shadow of another officer's words or actions.

I don't want to be under Rev Lowery's shadow. I could not disagree with his words more. Know what I mean?

I think this stuff about him being the only person able to solve the Sec. of The Treasury post is pure bunk!

People like him not paying their proper taxes, especially to Social Security, is what causes many others to cheat deliberately.

Anyone in business knows that their employer pays the exact same amount as they do into their SS! A total of about 15% of gross wages.

There are those workers however who don't realize that their company does pay the same amount they do. It is a big bill for most companies.

This excuse stuff of International companies paying him as a contractor, it appears, would be all the more reason for a sophisticated person such as he to make sure by hiring professionals!

Just the kind of preferred benefits some get that caused our current economic problems.

Geithner’s problem most likely came from his using TurboTax, which he admitted he did during recent congressional hearings.

When you use a computer program like this to prepare your income tax return, you answer a bunch of questions and the answers produce your return. At the time, he worked for an international agency that was exempt from collecting Social Security taxes, and it seems that TurboTax did not allow for this unusual circumstance in its questions.

Sometimes it is better to prepare one’s income tax return by hand. Geithner might have been better off today if he had.

During a peaceful event that brought everyone of every race together that old racist couldn't drop his hate for one day. We will never be healed with idiots likes lowery and john lewis running around race baiting and reinventing the race card.

The only bright spot is they are both old and hopefully their hate will die with them. The problem is they have already poisoned so many people with their hate. They have taught a whole generation that the whole world owes them a living and everytime something bad happens to them it is the white mans fault.

This is the kind of hate I have encountered since moving to ATL 18yrs ago. Atlanta is not too busy to hate they pander to the like of rev. RACIST lowery. Being in Atlanta surrounded by this kind of rabid behavior has taught me what hate is. I see this at work all of the time. Everytime they are failing in training they pull the race card to stall for time.

I've lived many places and was puzzled when I moved here. It seems that some have turned it into a cottage industry, occupation/money.

These are my thoughts...

Any place that is known as a 'mecca' for one group...draws all. Those that can make it there...AND THOSE THAT CAN'T MAKE IT ANYWERE...

It brings the best, and the worst, those that can't make it at home..nor Atlanta, nor anywhere.

I think Atlanta has more than it's share of bad Blacks who come here with a chip on their shoulder. They hate whitie.

It is really sad, because a lot of us whities...don't hate you. Just think of people like skyspy...who came here with nothing like that one their mind...and you tainted them.

ATL has turned into an ugly thug ghetto. She could have been a beautiful southern gem. It is a shame. Living in ATL has opened my eyes to the kind of bigotry and hatred I did not see growing up in the north.

Where I grew up most people's ancestors were immigrants from europe. My family was in Germany when this country went through a civil war. I don't feel like I have to apologize for my ancestors. They weren't here and did nothing wrong. Less than 1% of the white population was responsible for the horrendous act of slavery on our shores.

Let's HOPE that what this younger generation is demonstrating is contagious! Everyone who has reported the emotion experienced on the mall at the Inauguration is saying it was LOVE! That report came from white, black, Native American, Asian - EVERYONE! What upset you about Lowrey's comment - has also upset others when directed towards their particular race, gender, ideology, etc. His comment, IMO, lacked respect for all of those who are identified as 'white' who worked so hard for the realization of Obama's success.
