And I do not think that your remark that, “We can dismiss Reverend Wright as a crank or a demagogue, just as some have dismissed Geraldine Ferraro, in the aftermath of her recent statements, as harboring some deep-seated racial bias” is on the same level.


I agree with you when you stated: 

“…race in this country that we’ve never really worked through – a part of our union that we have yet to perfect.  And if we walk away now, if we simply retreat into our respective corners, we will never be able to come together and solve challenges like health care, or education, or the need to find good jobs for every American.” 

However, You have now shown that you cannot be the leader that our country needs. You went on to say: 

“This is where we are right now.  It’s a racial stalemate we’ve been stuck in for years.  Contrary to the claims of some of my critics, black and white, I have never been so naïve as to believe that we can get beyond our racial divisions in a single election cycle, or with a single candidacy – particularly a candidacy as imperfect as my own.”

I do agree that your candidacy is “imperfect.” And to  “continue on the path of a more perfect union,” yes, we must work together, but you are not the one to lead the challenge !


Please, do the right thing for the Democratic Party and our country that you say you love so much and withdraw your candidacy for President.  It is the right thing to do!


Thank you.
