Georgia Senate runoff candidate Raphael Warnock in 2017 video said that America’s preexisting condition is racism. Warnock, the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, said at a New Baptist Covenant event that the United States is a racist nation. No Black man should be forced to be a Senator in a racist country, so vote Republican.
Warnock said in the clip New Baptist Covenant shared from the event:
We are in a special moment. We are in an evil moment. We are in a tragic moment, and I suggest to you that our politics is symptomatic of our sickness. We’ve got a lot of problems, but I would not be a prophet if I did not tell you that racism is America’s preexisting condition. Like the insurance companies, nobody wants to go there. Nobody wants to cover it because we wonder what it would cost. We, the land of the free, and the incarceration capital of the world. In this land where we warehouse 25 percent of the world’s prisoners although we are only five percent of the world, we are to ask ourselves what has it cost us not to cover it, not to face up to it, not to confront it, not to deal with it. Racism is America’s preexisting condition.
“America has a preexisting condition. It’s called racism. It’s called classism. It’s called bigotry. It’s called xenophobia. And we need God to heal us of our preexisting condition.”
In 2008, Warnock appeared on Fox News to defend Obama’s minister, the right Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Wright went as far as saying that the United States deserved 9/11 when he said the “chickens had come home to roost.” Wright gave Louis Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award. Warnock is also a fan of Fidel Castro.
In 2016 Warnock said the election results , “America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness on full display.” What color does he think Hillary is?
Warnock has twice praised Dr. James Cone and described Cone as his “mentor.” Cone claimed to fight racism but employed a wealth of anti-white language, including decrying “satanic whiteness” and calling for the “destruction of everything white” in society.
In addition to comparing racism in America to a preexisting medical condition, Warnock has made a string of anti-police remarks, including that “we shouldn’t be surprised when we see police officers act like bullies on the street” and that “often those who are sworn to protect cause more trouble.”
