The Rev. Jeremiah Wright has been a controversial figure and a lightning rod for attacks on Barack Obama. I have only one question:
Why should one man’s views be interpreted as the beliefs of another? Why should one man’s experiences be cast upon that of another? Why must one assume that a man cannot form his own independent ideas and opinions, instead using those of another to guess and judge that person?
Barack Obama is not Jeremiah Wright no more than I am my minister. We are all individuals with our own values and ideals. To use the opinions of one to judge another is oversimplification and, in my opinion, pure stupidity.
