Bill Moyers: ‘I’ve Never Seen Anything Like This’


THIS WHOLE situation still makes me hurt. Makes me unable to organize my thoughts and feelings into a language anybody but I can understand. All I can do is share the words of others who've been able to wrap their minds around it, because much as I try, I still can't.

And it makes me hurt.

Beware the terrible simplifiers.

"the grief each will carry" ... I haven't seen any of the multitude of media critics, pundits or otherwise put it so succinctly, and that is what is so very hurtful... an enforced "divorce" between a worshipper and his pastor. Certainly each of them will carry the scar forever. How very, very sad.

Once again Bill shows why I respect him as journalist over almost all the others who pretend to be journalists.

What angers me about this Wright madness is that it is nothing but a political distraction from the issues that really matter. It should never have been allowed to grow the legs it has. Americans as a collective are number than hammers.

As Bill says, apparently it is about race. And that is a shame. It should not be. Not ever. But especially not now.
