A Black or Wright Issue
by

I think both Michael Crowley and Amy Holmes have half a point. Crowley isn’t wrong that the sense of alienation from white America felt by Jeremiah Wright and his congregants is shared by many black Americans outside Trinity United Church of Christ, many of them middle-class or better. Holmes is right that many blacks, including many black Republicans, don’t feel this alienation. But I’m not sure that Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell, as much as I, white W. James Antle III, admire them, are representative of majority black opinion. There are many African Americans closer to the black mainstream who also reject Wright’s views, but I’m not sure the best way to draw them out is through an appeal to the authority of Michael Steele.
