Can we just go ahead an admit the truth?

I think we should just go ahead and be honest, any major black politician in the Democratic party today is likely to have ties or associations to a Pastor like Wright. Given that can we just go ahead and admit that there wont be a Black Presidential Canidate with crossover appeal on our side until the Civil rights generation dies off.
Once we go ahead an realize that I think we should also realize that it would be wise for any smart ambitious African-American politician to join the GOP, as in the Democratic party the only way to rise is through the Black Church structure (lets be real outside of the inner city a Black man will not win the Democratic primary). I think that unless we wait half a century or so, the first Black President (unless Obama pulls it out) will certainly be a Republican, and in the end thats probably fitting given that they are the party of Lincoln.
As a final thought, its ironic to note that if we applied the same standards to whites that we do to Blacks, Clinton wouldn't even be a canidate, what with Bill's mentor being Fullbright a member in Good Standing of the George Wallace wing of the party.
