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.
Like the cow says, stupid is, as stupid does.
