No, I said what constitutes a "full and complete" human being is based on discretion, interpretation, and preference. No, you said, "If you don't agree, when is a embryo or fetus a "person" - imbued with the rights and privileges of legal protection etc.?" You asked a general question, a question for which there is no difinitive answer.

What does that mean? I originally asked what people felt about the pope's remarks. It is the very "discretion, interpretation, and preference" that I am seeking to probe. Again, that there is no definitive answer is the point of the post: to get a sense as to how people think about this. There are no right or wrong answers. As I do in every thread I start, I am seeking to create conversation - which would be quite boring if there was only one definitive answer.

In order for a leader to emerge, there has to be a major issue that can galvanize the mass of people.

There is no major issue anymore that most black Americans see as requiring the kind of social triage that we saw in the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The movement created these leaders.

Marcus Garvey supported a Back-To-Africa movement which supported African-Americans moving to Africa and using Liberia as a home state.

African-American settlers into Liberia behaved very similarly to European colonialists. They displaced the natives against their will, and used Western backing to establish Western social order.
