“OBAMA WAS LITERALLY MOVED TO TEARS”: Thomas Sowell on White Guilt in the White House

One of the painfully revealing episodes in Barack Obama’s book “Dreams From My Father” describes his early experience listening to a sermon by the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

Yet it is an explanation that has long been politically seductive, in countries around the world.”
