"Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it."
That quotation was over the kitchen at Jonestown in Guyana.Many forget the past until the same situation comes up again.
The situation at the cemetery in Illinois reminds one of the Till case again.Till was murdered because of sex and the white race.I'm talking about Louis Till, Emmett's father.He was in the service in Europe when he was hanged for raping a white woman.The defense use that as a excuse for Emmett's behavior.
Emmett Till's murder gave birth to the modern day civil rights movement. His mother Mamie didn't have him fixed up. They had it open casket.That woke people up.The photo went around the world.People seen that there was power in a photo.
This week President Obama and family went to Europe and Africa.This week the right played the race and the child card.A photo of Malia Obama wearing a peace sign shirt cause the racist at Free Republic to issue death threats. Then a photo of President Obama was taken out of context as a horny black Mandingo oogling a white woman.Someone really sending out a message to their followers.
Emmett was a kid and he was murdered anyway.It was all innocent.Malia wore a peace shirt, it was all innocent.President Obama helped a lady off a landing and it appears as something different.It was all innocent.It don't matter to the right , they want them dead.
Let's not forget about the pass,Emmett, Malia, or the President.I don't want to repeat the pass,do you?
