Fifty years ago, a black boy could be arrested, beaten and killed for raising his eyes to admire the beauty of a white woman. Fifty years ago, a man could be thrown in jail, beaten or killed for attempting to exercise their God given right to vote. Fifty years ago, a type of terrorism rooted in ignorance and hate plagued the moral fabric of this great country, making it impossible for a man or woman of color to be anything but hunted, oppressed and belittled each and every day of their lives.
Luckily for us, fifty years ago, these same victims refused to be victims of this country’s terrorism any longer. They instead, chose to band together as one to peacefully fight for their rights as United States citizens. Many were arrested, spit on, kicked, punched, sprayed with water hoses, and killed in the nonviolent fight for equality. The fight was bloody, tiring, and just when they felt as though they had had enough, just when they thought all hope was lost, their leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. dared to tell them of his dream at one of the largest political rallies for rights in United States history.
The March On Washington for Jobs and Freedom took place on August 28, 1963. Fifty years ago to this date, hundreds of thousands gathered in front of Washington, D.C.’s, Lincoln Memorial to demand civil and economic rights for African Americans. It was on this iconic day that a southern black preacher delivered the speech that would inspire the nation.

The honchos at CBS told TMZ that they were OFFENDED by several racist and homophobic comments made by the current “Big Brother” houseguests.
The houseguests have been under fire for the following comments:
– GinaMarie referred to welfare as “n**ger insurance”
– Aaryn called gay contestant Andy a “queer.”
– Spencer referred to Andy as “Kermit the F**” … and praised Hitler as a gifted speaker.
CBS released a statement:
“We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive.”
The Eye points out that 24/7 live programming can sometimes reveal some bad things about people:
“At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone.”
There have been rumors that CBS will nix the offending cast members. Right now those are just rumors.
Have we reached a point in society where we reward people for behaving badly? Does being a reality star give one license to say and act however they choose? Or are reality stars simply placed in a lane where their opinions are rewarded and welcomed regardless of how offensive or politically incorrect?

Breaking News: SCOTUS Strikes Down Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act.
“Holding: Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act is unconstitutional. Its formula can no longer be used as a basis for subjecting jurisdictions to preclearance. . . . “Our decision in no way affects the permanent, nationwide ban on racial discrimination in voting found in [Section] 2. We issue no holding on [Section] 5 itself, only on the coverage formula. Congress may draft another formula based on current conditions.”
The decision was 5-4, with all of the court’s liberals unfortunately upholding Section 4. Read More »
