I saw that on TV and what a disgrace, Bush should've been protested. The NAACP organized the protest. I don't say I much blame them. Neither party has responded to the NAACP's orthe CBC's requsts to meet with the president. And since Bush has been in office he has done nothing but try to pull the wool over the eyes of many in our community. This visit to the King memorial is a prime example. He should meet with the NAACP and the CBC as per their requests and address some of the concerns that these prominent groups are willing to discuss. However, I'm not holding my breath waiting for this to happen.
Our people have made the mistake of confusing the methods with the objectives. As long as we agree on objectives, we should never fall out with each other just because we believe in different methods, or tactics, or strategy. We have to keep in mind at all times that we are not fighting for separation. We are fighting for recognition as free humans in this society
