The State of discusses a plan by the Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III wants to organize a march on Washington with regards to these recent noose stories. I'm leaving some of their snide comments intact. Hopefully you'll either laugh or think about what is said...
"Several African-American leaders, including the Rev. Al Sharpton (does this guy have the market cornered or what?) and Martin Luther King III (nice name, but do something else to make yourself relevant, like get married and have kids), are expected to gather in Atlanta on Tuesday morning to announce a march on Washington, D.C., to demand that federal authorities intervene in the "huge outbreak" of hate crimes nationwide."The rest of the post argues that the current crop of "black leadership" is doing nothing more than seeking to recreate the 1960s. I suppose this is something that Rush Limbaugh would refer to as "playing from an old playbook".
"In the history of the civil rights movements, we have often had to appeal to the federal government to intervene. That was certainly the case during my father's era of leadership," King said Monday night. "[The march next month] is an appeal to the federal government to do something about the crimes, such as the nooses that seem to be popping up all over the nation."
Anyway here are some stories that I have found overtime about these "harmless" nooses.
