In just a few days, President Obama will be addressing a gathering at the Lincoln Memorial as part of the national celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Great March. We should all be proud that America has its first African-American president. And, at the same time, we should all be ashamed that problems of race and class still persist in this great land of freedom, equality and opportunity. It's about justice, folks, and the time for justice is always "now."
Have a nice day.
