Last night on the Hannity and Colmes segment on Fox News, Reverend Eugene Rivers presented what I thought was the most revealing and probably accurate assessment of the relationship between Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright.
Reverend Rivers is a Pentacostal minister in the Boston area who has spent time in both Philadephia and South Chicago and claims to be very familiar with Wright. The following websites give some additional interesting information on Reverend Rivers:
Reverend Rivers claims that Jeremiah Wright, is a talented though tragic figure who is driven by ego and who has wasted his talents with ebonics rhetoric and jibberish.
Reverend Rivers further stated that Wright has been like a father figure to Barack Obama becoming the surrogate for the father that Obama never really had. Rivers stated that the relationship between Wright and Obama has been an abusive relationship with Obama being like an abused person with Wright exercising the the power of the father figure to abuse Obama’s trust in him.
