Have we learned nothing?
On Saturday Glenn Beck held a rally on the same general spot where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr held his I have a dream speech. So many people came out to here all the speakers talk about honoring the people who have served or are serving this great nation. They also honored Dr. Kings vision which still hasn’t been achieved to this day because we have allowed the media to continue to divide us. I believe the media plays a huge roll in keeping unity from happening more often among the many races of America. It doesn’t make good news for them unless there is a controversy about what is going on.
We saw Al Sharpton in Washington as well, saying they had the message but Beck just had the mall. Dr. Kings message belongs to every American regardless of race, religion, or age for his message was one of peace, love, god and unity. The arrogance of anyone thinking that is belongs to just them is astounding to me. They point out that few of color where among the crowd, They fail to point while some Americans of color attended but everyone could have. When all they hear from the lame stream media is anyone who listens to Beck or is a member of a Tea Party is a racist, hate monger, crazy right-wing radicals and so on. How many people got arrested on Saturday? how many racial epitaphs were spoken? how much damage was caused? All they could focus on was the color of the crowd not the content of character of the many people who attended.
I have become so angry by liberal media that I can barely even stand to hear any of their names let alone hear them speak. I have been labeled as well with all the rest of the Tea Party people as racists who are seeking once again to become masters. This would be funny if it wasn’t so dangerous about them spreading lies about what the Tea Party and other movements are about. I have a diverse family like many other Americans around the Country, my baby sister married an American of color. I have a niece and nephew that I love very much, who are just like our current President are of mixed races. I would never join a group who would deny them their god given rights as American citizens. We must take back the message from those who seek to keep us apart.
We must learn from Dr. Kings words and from any American who’s seeking to bring us all together in the common cause of Freedom. If Sharpton, Jackson or anyone else wanted to bring real change, sit down with Beck and have discussions or real change. This just isn’t the agenda of Sharpton, He would have to find another job but keeping Americans apart from each other is his job. I would like to thank all the Americans who came out to support the Restoring Honor Rally and maybe the next time I will have the chance to go.
God Bless You All
