The Rev. Jeremiah Wright was Barack Obama's pastor and TCU has more than an academic interest in this story.
TCU is related to the Disciples (for at least a little longer), and the Disciples are related to the United Church of Christ. Wright is a UCC minister. I know Wright, and as a Disciple and twice a graduate from TCU, I'll fall on my sword for him because we must have the big conversation on race.
Racism became brutal for me when I became intimately involved with immigration, migration, refugees and persons seeking political asylum.
