Re: “Past and Present

In the article, 'Is Memphis Stuck in 1968', the point is made quite well. The redundant worship of a religious leader (Martin Luther King) who is mere human, gets old. He was a great man, so let one day per year be sufficient acknowledgment. The Europeans came to this country and persevered in the sciences, arts, engineering, etc. and did not waste time dwelling on the past sufferings. The fact of the Blues genre and Beale Street are also illustrative of this point. The African Americans tend to do that and are the bulk are welfare dependent, such as New Orleans. Their demographics did rate highest (lately immigrants from Mexico) in crime statistics. There are many exceptions to greatness in the entertainment arena, yet this does not truly progress society in crucial areas. I find it ironic that we have such groups as BET, NAACP, ad infinitum, to promote this culture, and Affirmative Action does the same thing while violation our right of association.
