Never Judge Too Quickly

Sorry Obama, the rich not oppressing anyone

One of the painfully revealing episodes in President Barack Obama's book "Dreams From My Father" describes his early experience listening to a sermon by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Among the things said in that sermon was that "white folks' greed runs a world in need." Obama said he was moved to tears by that sermon.
This sermon may have been like a revelation to Obama, but its explanation of economic and other differences was among the oldest — and most factually discredited — explanations of such difference among all sorts of peoples in all sorts of places. Yet it is an explanation that has long been politically seductive, in countries around the world.
What could be more emotionally satisfying than seeing others who have done better in the world as the villains responsible for your not having done as well? It is the ideal political explanation, from the standpoint of mass appeal, whether it makes any sense otherwise.
