yes, I do. There is nothing to lead anyone to believe we will act to prevent it. We have sat idly by for 21 years lettng the date for the ax to fall come closer and closer. And to reinforce that indifference, we, African Americans as a group, and the Congressional Black Caucus, and all the "leadership" groups have actively put position papers out there calling the entire impending act a lie. The most recent was a letter issued just before the national convention of the NAACP, signed by Kweisi Mfume.
Not only will we "sit idly by", but many have delcared such to be their intent.
And it is indeed, absurd.
But its real.
You are who you say you are. Your children are who you say you are.
