For decades blacks and whites have stood side-by-side – marched arm in arm, fighting for equality and desegregation. Though the odds at times were stacked against him, they persevered. However, some paid the ultimate price for the movement, including its champion, Dr. Martin Luther King.
They endured many abuses, all to give blacks the equality they deserved – so we could share a lunch counter, a water fountain, schools and universities. All spaces would be equal and open to any race.
Well, that was then and this is now. 50 years removed from the movement and demands for segregation have returned.
You may ask: “Who’s to blame for such an affront? Is it the neo-Nazis or the Klan or maybe the Republicans? Sadly it is none of these. What some would call bizarro world, others may refer to as college campuses, which these days are synonymous.
