12. I remember it well too.

I was 20 years old when he was murdered.
And what young people may not know is that the same kind of hate we see now against Obama we saw then against JFK...and for the same reason sort of....I can count the number of times I heard people call JFK a nigger lover....and I could recount many terrible things I heard back then living in the south.
I have said it before and I still think it is true....racism did not go away, it just went underground...and underground it is more dangerous than in the open.
I join you in that prayer.
