Those darn "greedy white folks" how dare they look to get ahead whenthe rev suffers

Poor Rev. Wright...he's had such a difficult life, the struggle against racism, the greedy white people constantly taking from him, keeping him back from opening and running a multi-million dollar church, oh wait....well, preventing him from getting ahead in "keeping the black man down"...well, maybe NOT that either...okay, well whatever it is, I sure wish THIS WHITE GIRL, had a "small little house" like his!

FOX News has uncovered documents that indicate Wright is about to move to a 10,340-square-foot, four-bedroom home in suburban Chicago, currently under construction in a gated community.

While it is not uncommon for an accomplished clergyman to live in luxury, Wright’s retirement residence is raising some questions.

“Some people think deals like this are hypocritical. Jeremiah Wright himself criticizes people from the pulpit for middle classism, for too much materialism,” said Andrew Walsh, Associate Director of the Leonard E. Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life with Trinity College in Hartford, Conn.

“So he’s entitled to be tweaked here. So the question really is, how unusual is this? Somewhat unusual,” he said.

According to documents obtained from the Cook County Register of Deeds, Wright purchased two empty lots in Tinley Park, Ill., from Chicago restaurant chain owner Kenny Lewis for $345,000 in 2004.

Documents show Wright sold the property to his church, Trinity United, in December 2006, with the proceeds going to a living trust shared with his wife, Ramah.

The sale price for the land was just under $308,000, about $40,000 less than Wright’s original purchase two years earlier.

Public records of the sale show Trinity initially obtained a $10 million bank loan to purchase the property and build a new house on the land.

But further investigation with tax and real estate attorneys showed that the church had actually secured a $1.6 million mortgage for the home purchase, and attached a $10 million line of credit, for reasons unspecified in the paperwork.

Seems to me that a few years ago Randy "Duke" Cunningham was completely embarrassed, indicted and now is serving in prison for a similar "transaction"...but apparently this is acceptable because he is the "rev" afterall!
