"When I think of the State of Georgia and Genarlow Wilson... when I think of the Jena 6 down in Louisiana... I see that Jim Crow still lives.

Maybe the children today, maybe the teens of today will see that the struggle is not over. The fight is not over."

- Dr. H. Beecher Hicks, Jr, Senior Pastor of Metropolitan Baptist Church, Washington, DC

Still there for how much longer? Ain't y'all moving out to Largo and abandoning the neighborhood? I have to say that Dr. Hicks impressed me until I ran across Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., the most relevant, socially-conscious pastor on the planet.

Hatred still exist. We as a people need to remember that. And continue the fight.
