(2008-03-18) — In a landmark address on race, which has already eclipsed Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream‘ speech, Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama today said the U.S. can achieve the Founding Fathers’ vision of “a more perfect union” only if black and white come together to overthrow the bourgeoisie who run the military-industrial complex and control the means of production.
In distancing himself from the “wrong” and “divisive” racially-charged preaching of his long-time pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Sen. Obama simultaneously defused America’s racial tensions, while filling his listeners with “the audacity to hope that the empire of American military and economic might would soon come to an end.”
“When the means of production are in the hands of you, the proletariat,” Sen. Obama told an audience in Philadelphia, “only then will black and white blend together in harmony the way they do in my own DNA.”
The Democrat presidential frontrunner painted a picture of “a glorious future when America shall truly be one nation, under God, in which God administers schools, hospitals and most other sectors of the economy through his anointed servants in the federal government, using the harvest of plenty gathered from the pockets of black people and white people alike.”
