    But not working, from a moral perspective.

Both the Bushs declined due to health reasons, and every other Republican declined because they had other events scheduled. So, yes, several Republicans were given a chance to speak and all declined to do so.

It was not until the 1960s that northern liberal Democrats were able to change the party's policies on civil rights to make them more friendly to all minorities and steer the party away from their its ugly history.

    About James Earl Ray being a Democrat, a more apt descriptor for him was a Dixiecrat. He was a fan of self-described conservative George Wallace who, although a Democrat then, sounded more like Republicans do today.

    Equal at last, Equal at last, thank God Almighty we are equal at last!

    Doesn't quite sound right, does it?

    I think the refocusing from gaining freedom to institutionalizing equality is the worst thing to happen to the movement.

    Agreed.
    There is nothing that exists that is "equal".

    If you have a quarter horse and a plow horse and you cripple the quarter horse so he isn't faster than the plow horse anymore, have you made them "equals"?
    Have you elevated the plow horse into a quarter horse? Of course not.


    Opportunity is the thing.
    The hyenas can create an opportunity any time they want to take the fresh kill from the lions.

    Do they have the ABILITY to do it? THAT is the key.
    Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't.
    That's how life works.

    Do you have links to that? What about Clarence Thomas? Did he make the list?

    When the Democrats dominated the South after the Civil War they were far more supportive of discriminatory policies. It was not until the 1960s that northern liberal Democrats were able to change the party's policies on civil rights to make them more friendly to all minorities and steer the party away from their its ugly history.
    They certainly steered some of them away from their racist history but certainly not all.

    About James Earl Ray being a Democrat, a more apt descriptor for him was a Dixiecrat. He was a fan of self-described conservative George Wallace who, although a Democrat then, sounded more like Republicans do today.
    Well of course the Democrats don;t want to be associated wsith the assassination of Dr.King so they will invent another name for them, like "Dixiecrat".

    Just read his history with the Democratic Party and how well he did in his Presidential runs. He was called "the most influential loser" in 20th-century U.S. politics" and of course that influence was with the Democrats. No Republican ever sounded like Geirge Wallace. That's just another slur on the people who actually did fight and die for the freedom of Black people. George Wallace - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
