WASHINGTON (CNN) – The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Sen. Barack Obama's controversial former pastor, has canceled his plans to speak at church services in Houston, Texas, this weekend in the wake of the recent uproar over portions of his past sermons.
Video clips of those sermons caused a public stir this month after being widely circulated on the Internet.
The clips in question include several racially charged statements and accusations the U.S. government has adopted policies to systematically oppress African-Americans.

Obama's own personal swift boater. I sure hope Obama doesn't have enemys!
GOOD. HE SHOULD CANCEL FOREVER.
REMEMBER....SAY NO TO B.O.

Along with Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment Benefits.
Tax Cuts for Rich to be made Permanent with an additional

FOX NEWS IS TRYING TO DESTROY OBAMA
I respect Mr. Wright, because he has only one face.
But I suspect Obama, because he has two faces.
What is the real face then?
CNN – CLINTON NEWS NETWORK!!!
I would like to hear from Rev. Jeremiah on his comments. What does he really think about American?
I know, I know. I can hear it already.. Hillary merely mispoke, she made a mistake, she embellished and so we should forgive and reward her by electing her and her husband Presidents of the United States. But this guy has made his bed and show now lie in it, right?
Rev Wright is no longer the Pastor of Obama's church Rev. Otis Moss III, is. You guys shown the new minister a few days ago Do you guys at CNN have a bias or are you like Hillary Clinton. You guys forgot the facts.
I am glad absolutely, i wouldn't want my hard earned tax money to be spent securing this racist, low life, hated filled person.
Byebye-Mr, Wright and Mr. Obama!--Father and son!
Who cares about this insignificant human being..
He hates America and he should be exported back to his original country..
Hillary will be the nominee..Obama could never win general election..
Reverend Wright is not a candidate for president nor the Pastor General of the United States. Dick Cheney's "So" would apply here too!
So, CNN still talk about this from somebody else mouth?? and already finish talk about lies from her own mouth?? I can't see the fairness here. Now I can see why Obama had to Race speech on this 21 century. Now more sence. Shame on CNN.
you know, to sit on your computer, and type in this blog that it is okay for someone to recieve death threats and have to fear for the safety of his family is so shameful.
Shame on those who applaud people who want to kill, to applaud murderes....shame shame shame
stop the hate, vote obama 08!!
this man is far much better than many hypocrits out there.
I have, for the life of me, can not understand why this so called Political team is so intent on the idiot BS stuff and who said what, instead of what the issues are. You are supposable very smart, but your comments do not help these USA voters!! Wake up and get your Stuff togeather.
WHO EVER READS THIS DO NOT SENT THE SAME OLD CRAP SAYING HOW YOU REALLY PAY ATTENTION.
WHAT COUNTRY IS IT WHERE THERE IS SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE AND THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH? I MUST HAVE GOT OF THE PLAIN IN THE WRONG COUNTRY.
Why would any Godly church want him? Now even his replacement pastor Otis equates Wright with Jesus?
Obama has digested this man's crap for twenty years and we are supposed to now believe Obama?
Hillary is a pain
She has no shame
Her efforts are in Vain
She should take the blame
For playing her dirty game
I just absolutely LOVE all Democrats!
Woman of Steel
Out for the kill
Against the peoples’ will
Playing the race card
Got people mad
Why are you so frantic?
I am now your critic
They call Obama Black
This is not a fact
A witty mulatto
With a conciliate motto
America needs change
Confident he can manage
He will bring the country together
Peace and love will reign forever
Wright words were not taken out of context. He said what he said and it was not good. There is no way to make what he said into a good situation no matter how long or how much you listen to it. The fact remains that Obama sat and listen to this for 20 years.
He avoids talking to anybody in the media and that is for a good reason.Everything that he would say would only magnify the "surpremist" attitude Wright wraps himself in.
His words would matter,they would clarify the concerns and doubts more than You Tube ever could about him and the church .
The more Rev Wright speaks the worse it will become for Sen Obama!
