Martin Luther King, Jr.

My former posts on MLK, An Inconvenient Hero, Beyond Vietnam, a speech he gave a year to the day he was murdered.

And I would like to once again bring up Shirley Chisholm, the first woman presidential candidate…unbought and unbossed.

Incredibly, I read a piece on President Obama yesterday in which he wanted us to have pity on the poor white guy who was puzzled at the dismal finances….say, what…?

The poor white guy who will now have to trade in his Mercedes for a Ford….

The poor white guy who will have to cut down on going out for drinks to two days a week instead of three…

The poor white guy who might have to let his Country Club membership go…

The poor white guy who will have to vacation in Florida this year instead of the Bahamas…

The poor white guy who may have to sell his second home…

You get the point…

Nothing about poor white women or non-white women struggling to pay the heat bill, and buy groceries…
