Washington, DC - Just after Obama's spin doctors thought the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. firestorm of controversy was behind them comes on the heals of Obama's infamous speech on the state of race relations in America today, a speech compared to other great orators like, William F. Buckley Jr., Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy. Comes news of the context in which Obama's White grandmother spoke her racist comments regarding Black people.
"I remember that day as if it was just yesterday," said Amanda Johnson, a close White friend of Obama's White grandmother. "It was a beautiful Sunday. Obama was walking his grandmother out to the church parking lot arm in arm after hearing Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. inspirational 'God Damn America' sermon."
Obama was in the middle of explaining to his White grandmother what Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. meant when he singled her out in the congregation and while pointing his finger at her referred to her as the White devil in a blue dress with matching hat and gloves.
That is when Obama noticed a large group of Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. parishioners gathering outside the church whispering among themselves and pointing to Obama and his White grandmother as they briskly walked across the empty church parking lot to their car.
"If I recall correctly, for some odd reason he [Obama] seemed in a hurry to get his grandmother into the car that day," said Johnson "Come to think of it, I guess everyone else was in a hurry too. Because the entire flock suddenly started running for their cars in the church parking lot too, right on our heals."
Obama then asked Johnson if she could go ahead of him and his grandmother and start the car.
"I told him I couldn't drive anymore because they took away my license," said Johnson. "Then I told him, 'But that doesn't mean I didn't know how.' So I grab those car keys from Obama and made of the car like a bee for a flower in summer time."
Obama ended up asking Johnson for the car keys back as he and his grandmother made it to the car ahead of Johnson, in fact, having to help her get into the car after placing his grandmother in the front passenger's seat.
"They were all such nice people escorting us off like that, especially Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., he was leading them all just like Moses," said Johnson. "I asked Obama if we could invite some of them over for dinner sometime, but he didn't say a word except to kindly ask me if I had given anyone at the church my address. I told him no. How could I? He didn't give me a chance rushing off out of the church like that without even saying a single goodbye. All he said is that someday I'd thank him for that. I still wonder to this day, whatever he meant by that. Do you know?"
