In the 1960’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, began the march towards freedom and equal rights for all people of America.
He marched in peace even while under real attack from the racist of the day, even while under the attack of both dogs and firehoses while they marched, and by night attacked by murderers Dr. King’s tool and weapon of choice remained the same, love, and peace.
There was also another segment of our population fighting against racial disparity… The Black Panthers and another leader as well known, As Dr. King (at the time), namely, Stokely Carmichael, who used violence and rioting as his tool.
Today, Dr. King is hailed as one of our greatest leaders, with even a holiday declared in his name… there are very few in our society not aware of him, and his work.
Stokely Carmichael… not so much, most people have no idea who he was.
Today, Black lives matter, who take to the streets in the same manner as Stokely Carmichael.
And we also have Brexit… A group of highly intelligent, well educated who refuse to be deceived by the democrat leftist.
They are peaceful and offer sound advice, they, in fact, are the cream of the American crop… and not just from the black population, but of America, black, white, brown, or some other people group.
As with Dr. King, they will be successful, and remembered, not so much the other group.
Stokely Carmichael was a U.S. civil-rights activist who in the 1960s originated the black nationalism rallying slogan, “black power.” Born in Trinidad, he immigrated to New York City in 1952. While attending Howard University, he joined the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and was jailed for his work with Freedom Riders. He moved away from MLK Jr’s nonviolent approach to self-defense.
In 1954, at the age of 13, Stokely Carmichael became a naturalized American citizen and his family moved to a predominantly Italian and Jewish neighborhood in the Bronx called Morris Park. Soon Carmichael became the only black member of a street gang called the Morris Park Dukes. In 1956, he passed the admissions test to get into the prestigious Bronx High School of Science, where he was introduced to an entirely different social set—the children of New York City’s rich white liberal elite. Carmichael was popular among his new classmates; he attended parties frequently and dated white girls. However, even at that age, he was highly conscious of the racial differences that divided him from his classmates. Carmichael later recalled his high school friendships in harsh terms: “Now that I realize how phony they all were, how I hate myself for it. Being liberal was an intellectual game with these cats. They were still white, and I was black.”
