Locals gather at the Second Baptist Church and march over to the Washington Gazebo as a re-creation of March on Washington to honor and celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I have a Dream" speech.
Didn't look like a big crowd.............
To the credit of the organizers of this event and others, it is tough to get people motivated to come out and do...anything. But for those that do go out to participate the event is still meaningful and that is what is important. Especially if they then go on to share the experience with others who wouldn't or couldn't show up.
"The color of one's skin remains a license to profile, to arrest and to even murder with no regard for the content of one's character,"
MLK's message has been lost.
sure go ahead and tell that one to Delbert Belton. oops guess you can't
MLK III's reference is condemning the sentiment and laws of an entire society.
The racial-hatred for profit pimps would have their constituency believe that NOTHING in regards to race relations have changed in the U.S. for centuries.
IMO, many should make a trek to Africa and see how DAMN good they've got it.
"Out Of America: A Black Man Confronts Africa"
"He found a continent where brutal murder had become routine, where dictators and warlords silenced dissent with machine guns and machetes, and where starvation had become depressingly common."
The white man's track record, came to America and tried to wipe out the Indians. Went to Africa and tried to wipe out the Africans. Went to the Middle East and tried to wipe out the Arabs.
White people doing the right thing since the world began!!!!!
"MLK's message has been lost."
Exactly what I thought when I read the headline.
What message is that? "The color of one's skin remains a license to profile, to arrest and to even murder with no regard for the content of one's character,". Still true today!
Sure tell that to darruis Simmons oops you cant.
tell that to officer Dunn... want to keep going
Activities like this and groups like the NAACP just promote racism. If we truly want to live in a society that is blind to the color of skin then we need to get rid of groups like this, that promote difference in skin color.
You are absolutely 100 percent WRONG!
No its 100% absolutely CORRECT. You're just so full of ignorance that pulling the race card is the backbone of every argument you give. Because you hate white people and think we are all racist. A lot of us aren't. We are just so sick of the double standards idiots like you promote.
No doubt about you though, you just erased any doubt.
Their time would be better spent organizing neighborhood watches and getting people to talk rather than " no snitching and protecting their own". MLK should have practiced better what he preached.
Is that how you spend your time? Are you going to protect those that snitch? MLK did practice what he preached. Pay attention!
Not me ,but, I bet you have. He cheated on his wife with white prostitutes, amongst other things. Get your head out the sand. He was just another crook, only his hands were kept clean for him. After all, weren't you the one defending the punk, who killed the 3 month old baby, recently?
Dr. King was a great man. I'm very confident he would be appalled and ashamed by the "entitlement" the vast majority of blacks think they should have today. The government handouts and dependence. The deterioration of family. The current state of the NAACP that wants to play the race card at every opportunity. This isn't what his message was about.
Oh, well, so glad you explained what MLK was all about. That clears it all up. Here I thought it was about equality, civil rights, you know, those kind of things.
MLK's dream is a long way from coming true, and the NAACP (and like groups) bear a substantial part of the blame. If they truly believed that a man should be "judged by the content of his character rather than the color of his skin," they'd be lobbying to derail affirmative action and wouldn't cry, "Racism!" as a matter of course rather than as a matter of fact.
Bottom Line also makes a valid point concerning "entitlement." MLK made it clear he wanted black men and women to stand BESIDE white men and women in schools, the workplace, etc. At no time did he suggest that anybody was "owed" ANYthing other than a chance.
Who was with MLK when he was shot and killed?
sam, describe what you think Executive order 10925 (Affirmative Action) is.
Right on Sam!! USA-the land of 'entitlement'....
