Speaking Truth to Power
Posted by Charles II on December 6, 2014
Philip Agnew, The Guardian, on a meeting of African American leaders on the issue of racial disparities in police shootings:
We told President Obama that we were not the “People’s Spokespeople”. We told him that we had neither the power, positions, nor desires to stop the eruptions in the streets and that they would continue until a radical change happened in this country. We told him that we had no faith in anything, church or state. We told him that the country was on the brink and that nothing short of major capitulations at all levels of the government to the demands of the people could prevent it. Straight talk like that.
