    In the Spirit of Politics,




    The logic of this is hard to follow ... :facepalm: ... Relevancy will not be lost to history until racism white supremacy is defeated ...



    Relatives question honor for civil rights workers


    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Three civil rights workers who were killed by Ku Klux Klansmen in 1964 are going to be posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, but the honor makes some of their relatives uneasy.

    They worry it could relegate the racial equality movement to history books when it should instead be seen as relevant as ever, particularly in light of what happened in Ferguson, Missouri, where a white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old in August.

    I can understand the feelings of these families. This is putting a band-aid on a bullet wound.

    Arlington Cemetery has a memorial to unknown soldiers for every war......It should also have one for the countless Blacks lynched and the un-sung martyrs of the CRM.
