What has been the impact of the march on the nation? Looking back, what criticisms or praise can be gleaned?
The Drug Gangs got a bunch of Guns from Eric Holder. I wonder if any of those made it back to Chicago?
It is a good start, masked man.
moderation, there is nothing clandestine or unmotivated about their goal. what is left after achieving equality?
I wonder where they buy their guns?
Do you suggest,greek,that there are illegals with guns in Chicago, when you say that city is a hub of numerous Mexican drug cartels ?
New York has a population 5 times that of Chicago, yet the murder rate in Chicago is several times worse than New York City. The difference? "Stop and frisk."
You are saying that there is an agenda that is or could be considered clandestine because "equality under the law has been attained, and that being unmotivated is a goal?
considering that equality under the law has been attained, what other than that requires more than an individual responsibility and motivation?
what is the goal,sir?
If that is what you chose to believe, beright. You however maintain a high level of posting, and thus express many opinions within those offerings.You have,also,on several occasions offered validity to my posts. I did question your intended meaning, and sometimes my articulation is lacking and needs tweaked.I do read your stats and appreciate your perspective on many issues. Again,however, we must always remember not to "throw the baby out, with the bath water".
moderation, it is about time to desegregate. there should not be a black community. equality was achieved long ago. i suspect that equality is not the goal. many other races exist within our nation and every race has been enslaved at some point in mans history. some are as we write. it is time for integration to be complete. unfortunately, many in your stated black community have a different idea in what it means to be equal. the dream of MLK will not be achieved here on earth in that all men are imperfect and have an envious heart as well as a deceiving mind. it is my personal belief that the actions of MLK or the need for the civil rights act should have been totally unnecessary. it is time for the race de jour to be removed from the pedestal of pity and join the rest of us. that way we all get screwed equally. don't you think?
I apologize for not living up to your expectations. However, you ask more questions than make statements to respond to. You are a high maintenance poster.
That was the reply I hoped beright would offer, Kendall.The black community needs to be viewed in totality.
I doubt he did look at the civil rights type of problems facing African-Americans being their fault. However, and this is a guess, I feel he would be on the side that would expect the African American community to lift itself up to a higher standard. From my understanding, Dr. King expected the people in the movement to try and keep above reproach. I can't see him being all for the modern "gangsta" lifestyle within the culture.
Mod: I don't think this is what MLK meant when he said "I have a dream".
He said “One hundred years later, the N e g r o is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land” or in their neighborhoods in Chicago. When he made his speech I do not think he thought his own people were the problem.
He said “One hundred years later, the ***** is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land” or in their neighbors in Chicago.
beright-what exactly are you saying when you point out the escorting of children within the hood ?
I see in Chicago that Black Children had to be escorted through Black Neighborhoods on their way to school because authorities were concerned about what Black Gangs would do when these Black children crossed over Black Gangs territory lines. Where are Jesse and the Rev on that one? What would MLK think? 50 year anniversary? Black are more in danger of being harmed by one of their own than by anyone else.
fred, as you get older you may appreciate a good "stop-and-frisk"! most police forces have some pretty nice lookin' lady cops.
