"For me, the most important lesson
[of the Freedom Movement] is that by respecting the fact that fellow activists could passionately disagree over strategy and tactics—yet remain allies—they strengthened SNCC and the Movement as a whole."

Tea Party and Malcom X?


See article on Colorlines:
It’s no wonder Glenn Beck banned signs from his now-infamous march on Washington a couple weeks ago. Tea Partiers are notoriously bad at them. Take Sunday’s 9/11 Tea Party Rally in D.C., for instance. Not only was it held the day after the anniversary, but then there’s the gem of the above photo: a white man in a Desert Storm veterans cap holding a sign that’s referencing Malcolm X’s iconic 1964 speech on black civic engagement.
