I listened to all those people talk yesterday and I came to the conclusion that maybe in oir current state thats all we can obtain is hope. I dont see the ambition that was present 50 years ago for change. I think that since we have become so innograted as a nation that there is a presure for assimulation. I can be ammited that a lot of those causes were not on the agenda 50 years ago.Im young and dumber than ill admit, but I can not see any progression for the so called african american man if he does not first step back and Identify himself. To create a community where he can persure his american dream where he can prosper and build prosperous family. Admittly im about200 years behind my time, but segreation was not without its benifit. Without our own systems there will never be equality​
True

And even Dr King himself said that , but no one had the manhood to repeat it at the march!

Rep. John Lewis Remembers Historic March on Washington



ABC News - Rep. John Lewis Remembers Historic March on Washington (ABC News)

Nearly 50 years after the March on Washington, the sole surviving speaker from that day, Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, spoke with ABC's Byron Pitts about the pivotal event, recalling the moment he knew the day would live forever in American history.
"When I…stepped to the podium I saw hundreds and hundreds of young people," Lewis recalled during an interview for "This Week."
"And I said to myself, 'this is it,'" he remembered.

1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
