I have not felt that Reverend Wright had a fair playing field while the continuing loops of news tape repeated endlessly over the past weeks on all-news networks. Taken in snips, and out of context, Wright was maligned and used as a political tool by the opponents of presidential candidate Barack Obama. Reverend Wright, who has long had a respected resume for his intelligence and scope in the religious community around the nation suffered the onslaught and slurs in silence. This weekend he rightfully responded. First he joined Bill Moyers, always worth viewing on PBS, and then on Sunday night he delivered a speech at the NAACP dinner.
And he deserves to be heard. I am proud to use this blog as a way to allow viewers to see the NAACP dinner speech.
So here is Reverend Wright.
