Un Dia esta Nacion se alzara ...vivira el verdadero significado
de su credo...
Sostenemos que estas verdades son evidentes por si mismas: Que
todos los hombres son creados iguales...
One Day this Nation will rise up ...live out the true meaning
of its creed...
We hold these truths to be self evident: That all men are created
Un dia en las lomas rojas de Georgia ...hijos de antiguos esclavos
e hijos de antiguos dueños de esclavos ...podran sentarse juntos en la
mesa de la hermandad... Mis cuatro hijos pequeños un dia viviran en una
Nacion donde ellos no seran jusgados por el color de su piel sino por el contenido
de su caracter...
One day on the red hills of Georgia ...sons of former slaves
and the sons of former slave owners ...will be able to sit down together at the table of
brotherhood... My four little children will one day live in a Nation where
they will not be judged by the color of their skins but by the content of their character...

Four decades ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led what would be his last campaign—a
strike in Memphis, Tenn., involving hundreds of working people who dared
to take a stand for dignity and respect on the job and a voice at work with
AFSCME. During the strike, King spoke to the workers and reminded them of the
dignity of their labor: "So often we overlook the work and the significance
of those who are not in professional jobs, of those who are not in the so-called
big jobs. But let me say to you tonight that whenever you are engaged in work
that serves humanity and is for the building of humanity, it has dignity and it
Tragically, King never witnessed the success the Memphis sanitation workers
achieved. The 64-day strike ended
with a union contract for 1,300 members of AFSCME Local 1733. The strike is
credited with reviving a dormant union movement in Memphis and initiating a wave
of public employee union organizing in other parts of the South. In honor of the
strike’s 40th anniversary, the AFL-CIO is holding its 2008 Martin Luther
King Jr. holiday observance this weekend in Memphis. More than 900 union and civil
rights activists are gathering to reaffirm their commitment to making King’s
dream a reality.
We stopped buying the NY Post 20 years ago in February 1990 for being insensitive
and down right racist. We don't know why it took so long for people to wake up
and see the light.
The NY Post has been a racist newspaper for many decades. We have never again
purchased that sorry newspaper since the day that Nelson Mandela was released
from prison in South Africa. On the day Nelson Mandela was released from prision
the New York Post ran a stupid tabloid story on the front page ignoring the real
news of the day.
No one with any dignity in New York should buy the Post.
Please join Que Lindos in requesting that the city of Atlanta place signs on the roads and highways around The King Center so that visitors can find it. While on a visit to The King Center in June of 2005 we could not find a single visible sign that indicated where the center is located. We believe that Atlanta could do better to inform its visitors. Que Lindos requests that the student body of every High School that bears the name of Martin Luther King sends a letter to the visitor's bureau of Atlanta and to its Mayor requesting the placement of signs that give visitors the direction's to The King Center.
"True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar;
it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring."

Let's not forget the Ku Klux Klan has murdered more people in the USA than al-Qaeda.
