400-408 – • CNN, Transcript of Jeremiah Wright's speech to NAACP (Sunday, 4/27/08).
(:54) JW, "Dr. Hale."  "Dr. Janice 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."
(1:07) JW, "L/R Brain."  "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."
413-423(1:38) JW, "Oral Culture."  "Because they learn from a subject, not from an object. Tell me a story. They have a different way of learning. Those same children who have difficulty reading from an object and who are labeled EMH, DMH and ADD. Those children can say every word from every song on every hip hop radio station half of who's words the average adult here tonight cannot understand. Why? Because they come from a right-brained creative oral culture like the (greos) in Africa who can go for two or three days as oral repositories of a people's history and like the oral tradition which passed down the first five book in our Jewish bible, our Christian Bible, our Hebrew bible long before there was a written Hebrew script or alphabet. And repeat incredulously long passages like Psalm 119 using mnemonic devices using eight line stanzas. Each stanza starting with a different letter of the alphabet. That is a different way of learning. It's not deficient, it is just different. Somebody say different. I believe that a change is going to come because many of us are committed to changing how we see other people who are different."
428-437(:43) JW, "Bondage."  "Now, what is true in the field of education, linguistics, ethnomusicology, marching bands, psychology and culture is also true in the field of homiletics, hermeneutics, biblical studies, black sacred music and black worship. We just do it different and some of our haters can't get their heads around that. I come from a religious tradition that does not divorce the world we live in from the world we are heading to. I come from a religious tradition that does not separate the kingdom of heaven that we pray for from the devious kingdoms of humans that keep people in bondage on earth."
443-452 – • Fox News, Transcript: Rev. Wright at the National Press Club (Monday, 4/28/08).
(:52) JW, "Politicians."  "What I mean is what several of my white friends and several of my white, Jewish friends have written me and said to me. They've said, "You're a Christian.  You understand forgiveness.  We both know that, if Senator Obama did not say what he said, he would never get elected."  Politicians say what they say and do what they do based on electability, based on sound bites, based on polls, Huffington, whoever's doing the polls.  Preachers say what they say because they're pastors.  They have a different person to whom they're accountable.  As I said, whether he gets elected or not, I'm still going to have to be answerable to God November 5th and January 21st.  That's what I mean.  I do what pastors do.  He does what politicians do.  I am not running for office.  I am hoping to be vice president.
(:42) JW, "Farrakhan."  "MODERATOR:  What is your relationship with Louis Farrakhan?  Do you agree with and respect his views, including his most racially divisive views?" … "[H]ow many other African-Americans or European-Americans do you know that can get one million people together on the mall?  He is one of the most important voices in the 20th and 21st century.  That's what I think about him.  I've said, as I said on Bill Moyers, when Louis Farrakhan speaks, it's like E.F. Hutton speaks, all black America listens.  Whether they agree with him or not, they listen." … "Louis Farrakhan is not my enemy.  He did not put me in chains. He did not put me in slavery.  And he didn't make me this color."
(:36) JW, "Jesus Only."  "MODERATOR:  Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh unto the father but through me."  Do you believe this? And do you think Islam is a way to salvation?  WRIGHT:  Jesus also said, "Other sheep have I who are not of this fold."  (APPLAUSE)
