“I vehemently disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy,” Obama wrote in a blog post on the Huffington Post website, calling Wright’s comments “inflammatory and appalling”.

While pundits expressed shock and horror at Wright’s statements that the September 11 attacks were brought on by American “terrorism” and that African-Americans should sing “God Damn America” to protest their treatment, they should not have come as a surprise for Obama.
