    -- but you needen't feel that its just us blacks who have been betrayed.  Every citizen who believed in fairness and justice and a chance to make his/her own destiny has been betrayed in every way.. The language of this nation, its culture has been perverted to the language of the strongest, the richest take all -- without apology or a backwards glance.

    This country has never been saintly.  Never. But we always hoped that it would keep trying to be better...I remember my Grandma crying at her ironing board when the Civil Rights Act was passed in '64.  She thought she'd never live to see it.

    She's gone now -- thankfully...

    So -- when are we going to stand up?  This has less to do with Democrats and Republicans than citizens versus slaves.  

    Soon we will be called to account.  We will see who we are at that time.  Lets hold our heads up and expect the best from ourselves.

    Stop Looking For Leaders - WE are the Leaders!!!
