I just finished watching and reading Obama’s speech on race and comments related to his pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. You can read it here. In light of the political fallout Obama will have to continue to deal with due to Rev. Wright’s comments, it’s a fantastic speech, yet I am left wondering if it is seen as strong enough defense of Wright by some. I thought Wright was outstanding when he made the keynote presentation to the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association in Portland last year.
