Rev. Jeremiah Wright at New Tabernacle Baptist Church, 531 North Kedzie, yesterday:
“Some of these things [black-on-black crime] have to do with the government and some of these things have to do with our relationships with each other,” [italics mine] Wright told a group at an anti-violence program . . .
Parallel structure demands “Some . . . with the government . . . some . . . with us.” But you can’t be direct in that situation. Rev. Wright can’t alienate his base, no. And so he holds back, just a little.
And the government’s role as partially responsible?
Making a good point nonetheless, in truncated manner nonetheless.
