UTILIZE & APPRECIATE

INTERGRATION, A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD! We got Equality (or did we?) and lost sense of SELF (self love, self respect, self worth, pride and spirituality). Malcolm X and Dr. Martin luther King Jr. lost their lives while trying to fight for our freedoms. Do you think our ancestors would risk their lives again for us, considering what we are doing with their precious gift?

Thank you for writing that. I agree with your point 100%. It's sad that we got so "integration-happy" and lost our sense of unity for the most part.

I don't think Martin Luther King Jr. or Malcom X would feel like African Americans appreciate either of them lying down their lives. I have issues with anyone who doesn't go out and vote. I especially have issues with african americans who don't vote. I've voted every year since I turned 18. Let the lives that were lost count for something, let your vote count. (Even if they have to recount it).

If those two guys were still around, the black community would have the leadership that it so desperately lacks.
