On the anniversary of the assassination of this great scholar, I feel obligated to leave some of his words with you all:

"Nobody can do this for us. No document can do this for us. No Lincolnian Emancipation Proclamation, no Kennesonia, no Johnsonian civil rights bill can totally bring this kind of freedom. No, if the Negro is to be free he must reach down into the inner resources of his own soul and sign with the pen & ink of assertive manhood his own emancipation proclamation. Psychological freedom, a firm sense of self-esteem, is the most powerful weapon against the long night of physical slavery."

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

we will never see this on tv again. 

sad about that but happy that i was alive for most of this awesomeness.

T.V, shows with majority black cast members need to go back to this standard.

A MERRY BLACK CHRISTMAS SEASON FROM JET MAGAZINE!

Somebody forgot to tell Jet magazine that Santa is white! Long before FOX News declared it a “historical fact” that Santa Claus was a Caucasian man, Jet was running an annual black Santa cover, featuring noted music and comedy celebrities. Here are 10 of our favorites, with cover appearances by Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Sherman Hemsley, Esther Rolle, Bill Cosby Richard Pryor, and more.

Top to bottom:

Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Esther Rolle, Bill Cosby, Redd Foxx, Sherman Hemsley, Richard Pryor, Emmanuel Lewis, Black Santa, Soul Santa
