I hardly ever mention religion, cause it's my belief that yours is none of my business, and vice-versa, but sometimes....

Dr. Joseph Lowery giving the Benediction at the Inauguration of Barack Obama.

...that you will help us work for that day
when Black will not be asked to get back,
when Brown can stick around,
when Yellow will be mellow,
when the Red man, can get ahead, man,
and when White will embrace what is right.

Let all those who'll do Justice and love Mercy say "Amen!" Say "Amen! and Amen!!"

That was what a preacher should sound like. And yes, my agnostic self was saying "Amen!" at the end.
