R.I.P. Kansas City Rev. Ralph Wright



Tonight we mark the passing of a Kansas City civil rights and neighborhood legend . . .

Here's the sad news:

"President and Founder of The National Peoples Movement Rev. Ralph Gordon Wright has gone on home to be with the Lord this morning. We will keep you updated on funeral arrangements. Please keep the family of Rev. Wright in your prayers."

Rev. Wright was exceptionally influential in a wide variety of Kansas City issues . . .

We earned a brief opportunity to speak with Rev. Wright while he was championing online access for his community . . . Fox4 offered the best report: Will Google Fiber Create Digital Divide?

More background: An Interview with Rev. Wright

Our condolences to the family and friends of Rev. Wright who he inspired . . .

Nope, sounds like a fat white racist to me. The vocabulary is too harsh.
