Playing Politics During Anniversary

On Wednesday, America noted the fiftieth anniversary of the famous I Have a Dream speech by Martin Luther King, Junior. Back then, this profound event affected change in the heart of our nation regarding racism. During this week’s celebration, I noticed two, equally-disturbing things. Tim Scott, the only Black US Senator, was denied an invitation to participate. And second, the white leadership of the Republican House declined invitations to take part. If you’re a Republican, you should be incensed that because of this, the party is further viewed as apathetic regarding our Black citizens. And liberal Democrats sent a message you aren’t a real Black unless you’re liberal. Both sides need to stop this nonsense and stand together in respecting all human life—black, white, born and unborn.
