The full text of Jeremiah Wright’s speech to the Detroit NAACP last night is a remarkable document. Here, for example, Reverend Wright expounds on racial brain differences:
Dr. Hale’s research led her to stop comparing African-American children with European-American children and she started comparing the pedagogical methodologies of African-American children to African children and European-American children to European children. And bingo, she discovered that the two different worlds have two different ways of learning. European and European-American children have a left brained cognitive object oriented learning style and the entire educational learning system in the United States of America. Back in the early ’70s, when Dr. Hale did her research was based on left brained cognitive object oriented learning style. Let me help you with fifty cent words.
Left brain is logical and analytical. Object oriented means the student learns from an object. From the solitude of the cradle with objects being hung over his or her head to help them determine colors and shape to the solitude in a carol in a PhD program stuffed off somewhere in a corner in absolute quietness to absorb from the object. From a block to a book, an object. That is one way of learning, but it is only one way of learning.
African and African-American children have a different way of learning.
They are right brained, subject oriented in their learning style. Right brain that means creative and intuitive. Subject oriented means they learn from a subject, not an object. They learn from a person.
Wright’s speech is a compendium of race saturated mockery, contempt, and misinfomation. Victor Davis Hanson comments:
Wright’s speech on black-right brainers, white-left brainers replete with bogus stereotypes and crude voice imitations was about as racist as they come and at one time antithetical to what the NAACP was once all about. Again, the Obama campaign and its appendages have set back racial relations a generation. Just ten years ago, any candidate, black or white, would have rejected Wright making a speech about genetic differences in respective black and white brains. Now it’s given to civil rights organizations by the possible next President’s pastor and spiritual advisor and done to wild applause for an organization founded on the idea that we are innately the same, while being gushed over by ignorant “commentators.”
Jeremiah Wright is a race hustling demagogue and hate peddler who might cut a riotous comic figure if it weren’t for those who find him a source of spiritual wisdom.
