40-Years After "Freedom Marches"

Recent Milwaukee area news and editorials noted, if not celebrated, the 40-years ago "Freedom Marches" in Milwaukee. What have those marches and resultant actions earned all of us--Black and White.

1. A many times higher Black-on-Black murder rate (Which would be
even higher except for the skills bloodily earned by the staff of the
"knife-and-gun clubs" at our local hospitals) and other like,
intra-racial, assautive crimes.
2. Jails & prisons with majority Black populations, utilizing moneys
better spent on education, county parks and public health
3. Much worse levels of education among Black children;
4. Schools which are more detention centers than places of learning.
5. A skyrocketing level of children born out of wedlock, and born
to other Black children.
6. White flight.
7. An influx of hard working, but illegal, immigrants who are taking
the entry level jobs needed by all of our own poor.
8. "Black leaders" as typified by the very rich Jessie Jackson and
the lying Al Sharpton rather than such as Dr. Martin L. King, Jr..

Oh yes--We should be dancing with joy for the effects of those 40-years! (In a pig's eye!)
