Now I don't know about you. But I personally have a certain affinity for Rev. Jeremiah Wright and what he has said (or rather shrieked) about America. For reference, I've posted YouTube links to press conference the Illnois reverend had with the National Press Club about a month ago. He gets at something the church hardly even mentions: the truth. Wright hit the nail on the head when he said America had sown seeds of destruction and now, with 9/11, is reaping the bloody, catastrophic rewards. He was close to the point when he said his condemnation from the media was an attack on the black church.

Perhaps a more accurate perspective is that America still refuses to look in the mirror and recall the destructive seeds of colonization, desolation of the Native Americans, enslavement an entire people to work for next to nothing, and institutionalization of racism, anti-Semitism and prejudice.
Though, in this short-term memory world, Americans seldom quiver anymore at the memories of 9/11, almost everybody wonder why The Almighty let the terrorists crash those planes through the World Trade Center. Most white folks are still searching for an answer to this day.
But talk to any Black, Latino, Asian, Native American or Indian person, and they'll tell you with one word: KARMA.
Right on, Wright! Brother Rage has found a new mentor.

Well, finally Frotoon is getting some notice!
It comes from Rob Clough of the indie comics revue High–Low.
He reviews my John Henry: Steel–Driving Man comic book.
Here is the link: http://www.sequart.com/columns/index.php?col=9&column=2147
Honestly, I'm thrilled to death that anyone sees the book.
If anybody out there is looking for a copy, shoot me an email
