How many of us think/feel the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is white folks problem? do you have family in Florida? Are there no Blacks on the east coast? Remember the story of Old Colored Joe on the Titanic? The titanic was sinking and somebody suggested they pray. None of the white folks knew how to pray so somebody suggested they go get Old Colored Joe. Captain: Colored Joe, my boy, this big old ship has struck an iceberg and will sink unless God has mercy on our souls. Now we know you're a praying man so we want you to ask God to save us. Old Colored Joe: (down on his knees) Now Lord, when I wanted an education the sign said for whites only. When I wanted to go to the movies the sign said for whites only. When I wanted a drink of water the sign said for whites only. Even when I wanted to take a leak the sign said for whites only. So Lord, when this big ol' ship goes down let it be for whites only.
