I'm reading through your post, and you can't even spell, don't you have spell check or something?:)
You are correct I did not bother with my spellcheck. Shame on me. I hope I got my point across regardless. Your comprehension seems in tact so my spelling/grammar should not be an issue. As for specia mr.ed I see you feel very accomplished in taking credit for Felis finding my mistakes. Good for you but for the record this is not school, just a forum for casual discussion. We will not be graded or rewarded in anyway. Finally in response to your remark yes I was picked on I school usually by "popular kids" for being engrossed in my studies and not caring what everyone else was doing. Did it bother me than? Sometimes but not often. Does it matter now? Absolutely not. Most importantly I do not use the actions of others as an excuse for my shortcomings. Sound familiar? It should. Here let me help. The same way you in order to deflect from the valid points I made choose to instead pick at my grammar and spelling. If you didn't get it then maybe you get it now. Maybe?

Your bad spelling and grammar skills deflect from your points, which have no validity.:)

Really !!!!!! Yes there are still blacks who have taken Dr. Kings work for granted. Your comment about most living off the govt Google your facts yes a large portion of male blacks are incarcerated and yes many of us are tax paying working professionals. My concern again is the lack of respect given to a man who just wanted equality across the board unfortunately his major work mainly dealt with the bus boycott and desegregation andmany whites wanted to kill him for that what you fail to realize is that blacks support your malls your restaurants your car dealerships etc. We need to to re-evaluate where and when our dollars are spent that is what made the difference during the boycott our dollars not being spent
