7. Thank you for sharing this with us.

I remember this when it happened. I was 9 so I was not entirely aware of what was going on but I knew it had to do with him being a black man and I hated that, it hurt to think people could do things like they did. I appreciate the information that I did not know about how they built their house. Wow. Such a sad thing.

8. Only a pawn in their game



The deputy sheriffs, the soldiers, the governors get paid and the marshals and cops get the same
But the poor white manís used in the hands of them all like a tool
Heís taught in his school from the start by the rule that the laws are with him to protect his white skin
To keep up his hate so he never thinks straight about the shape that heís in
But it ainít him to blame
Heís only a pawn in their game

Medgar Evers was a true leader in the struggle for racial equality.
