Uhhhh, Black Liberation Theology is the principle on which TUCC was founded... It's a real theologian belief system that seks to differentiate a "White Christianity" from a "Black Christianity".<quoted text>

I didn't work this hard to go back to where i came from because of a fools bigotry and greed poor is poor whether your black white or illegal!
Black liberation theology focuses on liberation from oppressions (based on Luke's accuonts of Jesus). In principle (at it's inception in the midst of civil rights travesties), it had it's merits. It gave blacks the identity with Jesus that they were not able to see in the "white church", but it never clearly defined what exactly that liberation and oppression are in the 21st century. Black men, women, and children are afforded all fo the same rights and privileges as white men, women, and children - so it's ideals are historic (at best); and has always maintained more of a political structure than one based on theology.
It serves the purpose of maintaining a racial divide by allowing people like Rev. Wright or his successor, Rev. Moss, the opportunity to stand on a pulpit and convince their congregations that they are oppressed and that they have absolutely no chance for anything unless they keep a distance from whitey. The doctrine serves to alienate and segregate, and to live live with a harbored deep resentment for all of white man for their own shortcomings.
In short, it maintains the captivity of blacks by brainwashing them into believing that captivity still exists to this day... If a truly liberated black mind (and many do exist) stepped forward and brought down the church in freeing all black minds, to see a world of people (and not just color), to accept differences and thrive off of the diversity... well then, what purpose would Rev. Wright (or any other Black Liberation Theologian) serve?!? None, because nobody would feel a NEED to hear that hate.
