A Personal, Open Appeal to Rev. Jeremiah Wright:
Dear Rev. Wright:
I remain a supporter of your free speech rights. I agree with the majority of what you have been saying. However, I must ask you now to please shut up! The You Tube editing/distortion I understand, the Moyers interview I understand, even the Detroit NAACP Awards I can understand, but your performance in front of the Waschington D.C. Press Corps was going too far. You didn't need to do that. Don't you see that this is hurting your friend Barack Obama? We have a chance to make history but more important we have a very strong chance to push these Republicans out of the White House. Why are you doing this? Is it ego? Anger? Whatever it is you need to stifle it and just shut up until Barack is elected. Then you can go on any show and strut in front of everyone. Right now you are hurting your self, your friend Barack and in effect will hurt this country. Please just shut up!
I say this respectfully, Rev. Wright. Please think about the damage that you are doing. I still believe that you are an honorable man but your latest actions threaten even that.
So for the sake of all of us Rev. Wright, please just shut up!
