Today is a good day to remember that the black panther party always was a proponent for queer rights and queer activists today can repay that kindness by supporting groups such as black lives matter and by working to eliminate racism in our own communities.
“I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: 'I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action’; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a 'more convenient season.’ Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.”

#MLKJr on peaceful disobedience. Now is the time to stand up and be inspired. Watch for Alt Reich and Trump agitators acting out violently at Rally’s and Marches. We are a peaceful movement, reject violence. #NonViolent
I don’t know what to say… Her words are a part of history, the black history!
And our people miss her so much, not only her words! She did great things in her life! Her speeches, interviews, teachings make us better persons! She was a warrior for defending not just black people, but for every group.
This crazy world needs her! Don’t let the dream die!
