Hey, thanks for swinging by my blog.

Whether it's topical news, internet happenings, social media, public relations, marketing, start-ups, mobile shiz or whatever, I promise to wade through the bullshit and give you my unbuffered perspective.

You'll note I never take on a "corporate tone" — whether I'm chatting you up at a party or speaking to the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company, my voice never changes. I say what's on my mind and I'm often the champion of the underdog.

I'm a social media junkie and smoke Google Analytics in a crack pipe to get my day going. I hope my immersed insight and offbeat view make you laugh. More importantly, I hope you take a second and share your thoughts by posting a comment. If you have any ideas on how to make my blog better, shoot an email to kel@kelandpartners.com.

Peace out.

Wright Is Wrong

April 29, 2008 9:47 AM

I’m sure everyone has seen the latest rants of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s former pastor. His actions have caused a media firestorm and the footage and quotes have been plastered across virtually every media outlet over the last twenty-four hours. I find it incredibly painful to watch.

 

It’s not his message that bothers me as much as his behavior. Wright is wrong for one simple reason — it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. Reverend Wright is entitled to his perspective and should be respected for it regardless of how much it may differ from others. However, his inflammatory remarks, condescending tone, accusatory rants, disrespectful vernacular, mocking rhetoric, and holier-than-thou air is where he loses my respect. Because his approach is so inappropriate, his message gets lost. People can only hear his tone and see his behavior and from there they shut down. For the record, I am not an Obama supporter. At the end-of-the-day, I should be squealing in delight at the havoc Wright is wreaking across Obama’s campaign. But I’m not.

 

In spite of his intelligence, Wright really is one of the most ignorant religious icons of all time. I’m pretty sure we all learned at an early age that you get more bees with honey. Based on his approach, this dude is a wasp stuck in Obama’s bonnet and his self-inflicting wounds are hurting everyone. While there is a difference between “right and wrong” there is clearly no difference between “Wright and wrong.”

 

How do you feel about Wright’s behavior?
