    In light of the racist comments by Obama's Pastor Jeremiah Wright, Smiley went on air and said while America is ready for a black president, he does not believe Obama is the right person to be president. Obama had been a guest on Smiley's show a couple of months ago.

    It has come out that Wright's comment may have been taken out of context and that perhaps FOXNEWS and media has altered his sermon so that only those hateful words could be heard. Still it hasn't stopped other people like Smiley to withdraw his support.
