Martin Luther King was indeed a special person, but once they're dead, they're really no longer special people, they're memories. They can no longer "lead" us. When you look back, most of the people who were special to us, are GONE. I don't believe Africans in America are supposed to have leaders, we're supposed to be led. We follow the leaders; if we're allowed to continue breathing, and the leaders are predominantly of the Caucasian persuasion. It's the way of the African in America.

Nationally, 39 percent of welfare recipients are white, 37 percent are black, and 17 percent are Hispanic.
