Rev. Joseph Lowery on a Greener America

This--from the Rev. Joseph Lowery, delivered following the new President's swearing in--is being interpreted as a prayer for racial harmony:
"We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow ..."
Seems a little fatuous for the Presidential inauguration, though. I think you'll find that the good Reverend was in fact just outlining President Obama's environmental policy. So to recap: not only should Americans be allowing the yellow to mellow, but--and I think I'm reading this right--the brown is not to be flushed down now either.

Change truly has come to America.
