Re: Edna Griffin: The Rosa Parks of Iowa

Edna Griffin did the right thing By REKHA BASU REGISTER COLUMNIST Originally published 1/26/1998 Before institutional memory has faded, and the 88-year-old's time is over, Des Moines should erect a monument to Edna Griffin. Chances are you don't know Griffin's name. No building or street carries it. Iowa schoolchildren don't learn it when they study the civil rights movement. And when lifetime Service Awards bearing the name of Martin Luther King Jr. were handed out to the governor and four...

HonestBrother, you have every right to your opinion about this being pointless but to others, it's of ultimate importance. You say the word "Amen" is possibly not of Egyptian origin. Like I said, I'm a man of facts. Just show me when and where it was used before Egypt and I'll accept it. I couldn't begin to give you every scripture in the bible that pays homage to Egyptian Deities because there are so many but I could probably give you a good 20 off the top of the dome, if you would like.

Inequality Before and After 9/11 by Paul Street I'll always remember the day I tried to engage in that silly exercise called "speaking truth to power." It was early December of 2001. My topic was American policymakers' decision to place nearly a million black people behind bars and to mark more than one in three black males with a felony record.

Haiti is undergoing extreme political turmoil these days (whats new right?), with riots and mass shootings of civilians, etc, and Aristide is grasping to maintain his political power by creating enemies other than himself.

This monument to inhumanity to man should not be allowed to disappear. When I first saw (pictures) of this facility, my conclusions were crystalized. Not all who when through those portals were pulled. Just as many were likely pushed. I recently saw the shackles for children too. They are a part of the traveling seminar given by a couple out of Philadelphia. I knew if I tried to speak I would scream. We should all see this. Our children should see this. Time is a seducer.
