Wow, you mean he said something worth listening to and agreeing with?

Louis Farrakhan, that is:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Minister Louis Farrakhan on Sunday urged his followers not to become complacent by President Barack Obama's election and to work to repair communities.
"You may not be pleased with everything he's saying and doing, but you have to understand that he's been voted in to take care of the affairs of a nation, and not yours and mine particularly," Farrakhan said. "He's the American president, not the black president."
Given those broad responsibilities, African-Americans need to "accept responsibility to build our own communities," Farrakhan said.

I must admit it was quite refreshing to see that as opposed to Farrakhan exhorting his followers to agitate for "social justice" or some other insidious leftist nonsense. Taking responsibility for cleaning up your own community as opposed to waiting for someone else to do it for you. What a concept! Of course, there's still the matter of his general bigotry and anti-Semitism that no one talks about...
