Obama On His Pastor's Anger

The crowd warms up as Obama speaks of segregation: "For men and woman of Rev. Wright's generation, the memories of the doubt and humiliation and fear have not gone away; nor has the anger and bitterness of those years."

The crowd applauds loudly at this: "The fact that so many people are surprised to hear that anger in some of Rev. Wright's sermons simply reminds us of the old truism that the most segregated hour in American life occurs on Sunday morning."
