While people debate if Martin was republican or democrat or communist & his message has been hijacked by the rioting masses in Ferguson
I think we need to be reminded it’s the signs such as the one here that Martin was marching against & for the ability for men & women of color to go in not only to stores & schools & businesses to shop & work their way up to owners without being judged by the color of their skin.
We can celebrate that our nation has come such a long way that we have elected a man whose skin is black even though he grew up much differently than the majority of american born blacks whose heritage include slaves (he does not share that heritage his father was a rich African & his mother was a rich white woman whose family may or may not have owned slaves in their history).
What is sad is that instead of celebrating how far our country has come & all of the advances our country has made in ending slavery (which is still in operation today in African & Middle Eastern countries) there are so many men & women who are creating division. Even sadder still is they are profiting on creating that division & feeding the fires of division.
Al & Oprah toss out the race card at personal slights but where they NEED to speak up & against such as the damage that Common Core is doing to the young black men & women in school while making elites like Bill Gates richer they refuse to speak out against.
We have a rich history of being Victors in spite of the odds that had been placed in our way yet that is not celebrated. Men & Women like Ben Carson & Star Parker should be held up & promoted by those who have the spotlight instead they are torn down because the agenda that is being pushed & there is no profits being made by promoting getting a good education & owning your own business as these examples of overcoming great odds have done.
I hope that you will take a few minutes each day to thank God for the strides that we have made here in the USA. You have been blessed to live here in this country instead of any of the others where slavery still reigns & women are not allowed to be educated.
Celebrate the USA where people can own land & they have the right to protect their homes & family because in too many countries people are not able to do either.
Celebrate because it is quite rare in other countries for poor people to be obese or have a closet full of clothes.
Celebrate that Black Americans come in a Rainbow of colors due to our history & that We Have Overcome because most of the glass ceilings have been removed if we take the time to research & do the work that is required we do not have to flip burgers for minimum wage we can Open Our Own Restaurant & Own Our Own Businesses.
Stop buying into the racist group think the communists are striving to force upon us that actually keeps us down & drags others down that have managed to get out of the plantation ghettos. Instead work to fight against those who promote servitude & slavery under a new name…
I Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr’s fight by choosing to pick up the mantel & join that long line of civil rights fighters that he was just one member of but too many of our young men & women do not seem to know the stories of. I fight the new slavery of ignorance, where the Constitution is held as a document of enslavement rather than celebrated as a document of FREEDOM & LIBERTY that it is.
