A New America

Rev. Sharpton BROUGHT IT this morning in his speech commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

He ended his remarks with something that might sound familiar to regular readers here.
I come to tell ya, I know why they're screeching and hollerin and talkin crazy...cause old America has passed away. Old America that only worked for white males has passed away. Old America that only worked for English-speaking has passed away. Old American that'd tell you who to sleep with, but don't put food in the kitchen has passed away. Old things have passed away. We see a new America. We see an America of equality...of justice...of fairness. We march because we're gonna bring a new America - one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice - not just for some, not for who you chose, not for who you like - but for all. We believe in a new America.


  1. Even white,straight people love this! It opens OUR society as well - we don't have to fear being friends, loving, or caring about anyone. We can breathe easily when everyone else is living freely. No need for that tight chest and clenched fist, those sleepless nights laden with worry about who is getting something I don't have, and how different they are from me anyway. Nope - everyone in, nobody out - that's freedom for ALL people.

    1. A-effin'-men! Embrace the new America or clench your weapon in a fetal position. I choose to embrace.

  2. Well here is my response: &

  3. I love you Rev. You evolved just like you changed your look over the past 40 years. I watch you almost every night. So much heart & truth. Keep on keeping on!
    Thank you for helping me evolve & everything else you do.
