And no discussion of cars and automobiles. How many Americans could have homes paid for if trillions had not been wasted on cars designed to become obsolete? But that brings up the issue of understanding technology to know if the cars are designed to become obsolete or not.

It would be wonderful if Black people realized that there was non-violent face to the Civil Rights movement as well as a self-defense/armed side also.

When in fact they worked hand in hand for what they felt would be black liberation and to get white people off our backs.
