Rev. Joseph Lower isn’t known for holding his tongue, and for good reason. Unlike many so-called leaders of the black community who claim to have been active in the Civil Rights movement, Lowery is one of only a few real stalwarts left from that era.
Lowery was pastor of the Warren Street Methodist Church, founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Dr. King, and led the Selma to Montgomery march. He’s a true hero, and he believes that all n*gg*rs should show up and vote for Obama, according to comments he made over the weekend.
Rev. Lowery participated in a SCLC voter outreach trek across Georgia this weekend, and at a stop in Monroe County, made what some view as controversial remarks.
“I don’t know what kind of a n—– wouldn’t vote with a black man running,” said Lowery. “All that he did with the stimulus was genius. Nobody intelligent would risk this country with Romney.”
Lowery also criticized politicians for not doing more to help the poor, and said America has turned away from faith.
“We’ve turned our backs on the faith,” said Lowery. “America is going to h**l in a hand basket. We need to straighten up so God can use us.”
