America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.Blacks. So ungrateful. It's amazing people like Rev. Wright aren't on their knees thanking moral pillars like Pat and praising this country for enslaving their ancestors and getting them off that African tribal malarkey and on some good god-fearing Christian stuff. I just hope they don't complain about race relations in heaven as on Earth.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?classy!
