Question:

"Many Black people feel embarrassed at the degree to which we've been ignored," said Dr. Johnson.  "Why would we elect a Black president who acted as if Black issues were radioactive...Where is the dignity in that?"  OK, where is it?

"It appears to me the DNC is not bringing the noise. It's faking the funk...if you can't even mention the story of race in a story that dares to tell the story of America..." --Dr. Matthew V. Johnson, Pastor, The Church of the Good Shepherd, Atlanta, GA

Loga Michelle Odom
When President Obama was elected, said Dr. Matthew V. Johnson, Host of SOUL AFIRE, "He drew down on a certain spiritual reality, and when he did, he took on a certain spiritual responsibility."

Loga Michelle Odom
"I'm talking about a certain disillusionment," he continued, "that comes when suddenly people realize they have been used..."

Loga Michelle Odom
"Many Black people feel embarrassed at the degree to which we've been ignored," he continued..."Why would we elect a Black president who acted as if Black issues were radioactive...Where is the dignity in that?"

Loga Michelle Odom
"While we're happy to have a Black president," said Johnson, "we've taken a measure of the man...and we know now there's little return for us."
