Obama Doesn't question

"white-hating, anti-American" Sentiment

I was updating my blogroll and checked out Prestopundit for the first time in years and he has the following quote at the top of his page.

"Questions of effectiveness, and not sentiment, caused most of my quarrels with [a white-hating, anti-American follower of Louis Farrakhan]." -- Barack Obama, Dreams From My Father
Not having read the book I am ignorant of the context but I am curious if the "white-hating, anti-American follower of Louis Farrakhan" is his pastor or an old college pal? Whether or not this was his pastor that he quarreled with it appears that Obama agreed with the "white-hating, anti-American" sentiment. He just didn't think that was a very effective public stand.
