In my book, The Life, Love and Legacy of Coretta King, she said, “On April 4, 1968, I felt my heart was ripped apart. This was the trail of the century, but the trial of O.J. Simpson was covered by thousands, only a very few carried this trial. If such a crime and cover-up could happen to a man of my husbands’ stature with no consequences, it could happen again. And I want everyone to be aware of what we know”. You can read the report for yourself on line and also read the report of the U.S. Justice Department, who of course, denounced it.
Florida State University will honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. during its 33rd Annual MLK Week from Monday, Jan. 18, through Friday, Jan. 22. The weeklong celebration will feature a range of events, including virtual offerings, inspired by the theme “The Black Women in Our Lives.”
While the nation and the world grieved, not once has Trump attended any of Floyd’s three home-goings. Since President Obama left us, we have had a dictator, an oppressor, a liar and a White Supremacist. To me this disqualifies. So to me the presidency is vacant until someone worthy of that honor comes.
Until we can understand violence is not normal and we continue to dismiss black-on-black murder we will lose many valued souls. In the nation’s capital, around where I live many people go to bed every night with the sound of gunshots ringing in their ears, afraid to let their children come out and play. Elderly people cannot go sit on their porch for fear of being killed like Mrs. Lucas Silence will not help this. Black People have two terrible problems. Them and Us and until we solve both we be merely surviving and not thriving.
