I wish you didn’t do a disservice to the Poor People’s Campaign by emphasizing “racial progress”, since that is grossly against the essential value of the movement, which is ECONOMIC progress for ALL PEOPLE DESPITE RACE. MLK saw that economy and poverty were facing ALL PEOPLE of ALL RACES, and he knew we needed activism that JOINED ALL RACES. Please stop emphasizing the plight of only black people and realize that all people in this world suffer despite race or background. It is also an insult to black people to victimize them - people of all colors have made great strides thanks to the work of so many people (of all different colors and countries) before us. Please emphasize the unity and shared goals of ALL COMMON PEOPLE as MLK preached: “The fact is that capitalism was built on the exploitation and suffering of black slaves [and Native Americans, and Chinese slaves, and anyone not rich or in power, etc…] and continues to thrive on the exploitation of the poor – both black and white, both here and abroad.” Let’s move on from slavery as Dr. King sacrificed his life for us to, and march forward into the fight against poverty, extreme materialism, plutocracy, and corporatism - the Poor People’s Campaign! The fact that racism still exists in the minds of some people does not mean that our battle is with them. It is not. Please don’t confuse people. We must have laser-focus and crystal clarity on the resolvable issues before us. And most importantly, please stop talking about race and subsequently separating people. We are all human, and we must stand together.
