MONACA, Pa — Barack Obama avoided questions on the teachings of his long-time pastor in a press conference here, promising to address racially tinged comments made by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright in a speech on race in America Obama plans to deliver Tuesday in Philadelphia.
Obama: Mike, I mean, I know you guys are curious about this. This is why I am giving a speech tomorrow that will be a lot more fulsome than a press conference. Does that make sense?
Q. But will you address this point of how you think he characterizes white America?
Obama: I will absolutely address it.
Howie P.S.: If you want comments, there are 152 (so far) here.
