WHERE JUSTICE IS DENIED, WHERE POVERTY IS ENFORCED....

DAY 8




Discrimination is a
hellhound that gnaws

at Negroes
in every waking
moment of their lives
to remind them
that the lie
of their inferiority
is accepted as truth
in the society
dominating them.


--Martin Luther King, Jr.


(M.P.'s patrolling streets of Lower 9th Ward New Orleans 2 years after Katrina and the levee breaks)

Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.

Frederick Douglass
(1817 - 1895),
Speech, April 1886
