I have a few words for the organizers of this march"Get A Life"please find something constructive to do with your time,like mentor at risk teens and youths,be more active in community rebuilding with the number of people you have attracted to march.Go clean up a abandoned neighborhood or lecture on sexual safety and protection.

News flash the 60's are well over we have a black president if it was a s bad as you claim this would not be.The greatness of a man is measured in his own work.I grew up in the slums of New Orleans.crime,drugs the whole 9 yards
Today i am a home owner,Veteran and proud citizen i overcame and so have many others

But since we do not all agree with this March then it should not be made to reflect the entire African American populace of the United States..

I believe many Blacks men and women should reach out to the Black youth. Today many Blacks only see music or ganglife as the way to be Black. Which I would hate to see if I was a Black man.

Who do you think is going to give the most stars and flags? Blacks that are against it, or others that are racist? Knowing who stands with you , is just as important as standing for yourself.

Peace, NRE.

It's not about Stars and Flags its about some of those "old revolutionaries"who wont let go of the past and plant those seeds of confusion in young minds.True racism does exist but despite that fact alot of us make it with the odds stacked against us.I will not and will never buy into this idea of what the so called black leaders of today push.

I mean how can you listen to "Al Sharpton" for christ sakes the man has a perm.how does that represent the "black struggle"and he does not wear or is proud of his own hair.And if you read any of brother Malcolm's last writings he was all about unifying with anyone,anyone who opposed the wrongs of his times,Dr.King marched for things at the time that blacks were not allowed to have.

Today everything is at anyones disposal,higher education,military,job training etc.I never recalled any "white man"at any of those doors stopping anyone from entering.That old revolutionary ideology only stunts the seed of progress by making the young black man not try because"the white man will stop you"attitude.

I have children i expose them to diffrent cultures,lifestyles and arts to show them there is more to it than what it is.
Dont get me wrong i am proud to be Black but it does not stop at just being black I made the best of what Borther Malcolm and DR.King lived,fought and died for.that what makes me proud.

I am confused are you saying that Rev. Al Sharpton should be ignored in his endeavors for the black community because of his choice of hair style? Though he has had his ups and downs he has done alot for the black community.


Dont get me wrong i am proud to be Black but it does not stop at just being black I made the best of what Borther Malcolm and DR.King lived,fought and died for.that what makes me proud.

I wonder how you equated both of these men in the same sentence when both had one agenda but 2 different (very different) ways of expressing them. The same as you and the "marchers" have a different view, are in fact after the same cause. Your just expressing it in 2 different ways. They both lived, fought, and died, yes, but their views were different, yet they were after the same goal. For blacks to have the write to stand, march and be heard just like everyone else. Is that not what the march is doing?


I never recalled any "white man"at any of those doors stopping anyone from entering.That old revolutionary ideology only stunts the seed of progress by making the young black man not try because"the white man will stop you"attitude.

Is this a fact, or an opinion based on your life and understanding?

If i am wrong i will hear your evidence and take it to heart,to put it likely he is a shill,The days of the true Black Leaders are gone the last hope would be MIn.Farrakhan although i dont agree with his racial outlook 80% of what he says is true but

Well first Id like to say that you my friend are in for a treat. Here are just a few, quotes about Rev. Al Sharpton.
You can pick which ones you enjoy the most.


New York State Senator Kirsten Gillibrand “I’m very thankful to you Reverend Sharpton for your
leadership, your vision, for the work of the National Action Network. Thank you. You’re doing such
important work in bringing a voice to the people and communities who are most underserved.”

Speaker Newt Gingrich “He [Reverend Sharpton] has it exactly right; education has to be the
number one civil right of the 21st century… I am delighted to be able to go around the country with
he [Secretary Arne Duncan] and Reverend Sharpton to try to communicate [the importance of
education] with people of all backgrounds.”

Coretta Scott King “A leader who has protested injustice with a passionate unrelenting
commitment to nonviolent action in the spirit and tradition of Martin Luther King, Jr.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “I thank Reverend Sharpton, my friend, for his energy, his vigor
and his passion to make it absolutely clear that we love this country, we just want it better than it
is.”

President George W. Bush “I want to thank very much the Reverend Al Sharpton…Al and I have
found common ground, and by the way, it’s on an important issue. He cares just as much as I care
about making sure every child learns how to read, write, add and subtract. I want to thank you for
your leadership on this issue.”

President Barack Obama “I appreciate Reverend Sharpton for being a voice for the voiceless and
a champion for the dispossessed. He’s still on the front lines fighting the good fight.”
nationalactionnetwork.net...

I could keep going, but there is a possibility that you will not understand, that the message is more important then the man.

Peace, NRE.

Honestly I wish you were wrong.

But this is pretty much true. It seems that most of the black guys I knew in high school felt as though they either needed to be loud and witty or they needed to be large and thug like. Only 2 seemed to set apart from that example. However to be fair, I believe I am in a pretty low black population area.

But I think it would be hard to deny this as a trend.

In all honesty, if these people feel the absolute need to rally together then let 'em. I see no harm in this, and if it helps their self esteem or feeling of self worth, great. But on the other hand, I see this as just another ploy for attention. (Besides, what ever happened to the Million Man March?) I'm not black, so I can't pretend to know how or what the black community feels other then what my friends have told me. So maybe I shouldn't even say anything at all.

These are good quotes i must admit but they are only the opinions of the speaker.I wanted see his righteous fruit what law has he changed,who has he freed from prison.I will not take away from his works but .Seems the only thing he craves is media attention.

He waits for a story to surface before he pounces on it,he is never in the forefront looking for a fight like the civil rights leaders of olden days

Ok i take that point or points he has done some good.And its not about the perm
.It has to do with his pick and choose battles he takes on.Besides maybe you and i know of Al Sharpton but how many of the lil wayne generation can even tell you who he is.

I stand on my point that if calls himself representing us he should be more vocal and not wait until a problem arises to surface.seems to me in my opinion he only comes around to high profile cases not the little guy who can get a job because of his past who is now living the right way..

My point is this march cuts a line thru the black community as well.I for one am sick of being called an Uncle Tom by people who didnt put forth the same effort in life as i and other black people who rose against the odds.And by the way thanks for the civil dis-agreement

Are You Kidding?? Did You even see the list? That list is very extensive, thorough, and actually is about the rights of many more people then just black people.

See the above!!

Now who is calling you an Uncle Tom? Black people that are marching may have rose against the odds and are marching for those who cant, or haven't, or even know that they can. If you rose against the odds thats great. But that is not the story for everyone.
Maybe you are taking it way to personal, and refuse to see the others that may have not exactly been able to rise to the occasion.


And by the way thanks for the civil dis-agreement

Anytime!
That's what its about!

Peace, NRE.

This is drawing extremes, but I just want to make a point so please humor me.

Adolf Hitler also did plenty good. For example, the autobahn. Cancer research as well as the Volkswagen beetle. But then he divided the nation up by ubermensch and untermensch. We all know how that turned out.

Same with Al Sharpton and Co. Sure, they've done plenty good but what about drawing up that line which he often does? I've heard him say on at least one occasion, "we do not have racial harmony in the United States". Umm, OK? Some of my best friends have been black. I've worked alongside African-Americans as well. I've even dated a couple and know of others who are currently in relationships with people of the opposite race. Not to mention, when you go to a store, any store that sells/does anything. And a black person attends to your needs. Does harmony all of a sudden disappear and SHTF? No. Al and Co. play on the "differences" between us, and in my opinion that undermines everything good he's done.

Again, my 0.2 cents.
