Comments: Remembering the pain of the past to reap the glory of the future

Michael, what a powerful message. One that I concur with 100%. Keep it up... the "Soul Patrol" of Jackson, Sharpton etc., will keep Black America in bondage as long as possible, not for the benefit of any Black American other than themselves, i.e., power, prestige and a platform.

I don't understand why you give "the Soul Patrol" so much power.

Do you believe Blacks sit back waiting until a "Soul Patrol" member says something before they form an opinion?

Seriously. Conservatives give them more weight than your typical Black person.

But I guess the boggie man is needed.

you're right they are given too much credit, as if they truly speak for all blacks. what i think cons dont like is how the media always sees them as black leaders and they are tired of their views not being acknowledged. that is where i lost rev. jesse lee peterson he seems to me tobe just anti jackson and sharpton and it diminishes their message

I agree with you completely that these slave quarters should be preserved. To me this is no different than figting to preserve the many many Civil War Battlefields across the country. It's a part of history, and as such should be preserved so our children can see what our nation went through, good and bad.
