Immigration Today, Discrimination 50 Years Ago
Original post made by Paul Losch, Community Center, on Aug 21, 2013
His was a great speech. His message was not about the "negro," but something even deeper.
In the SF Bay Area, we live in a part of the world that has embraced that larger deeper message. Would that were the case around the country.
Sadly, the words on the Statue of Liberty about immigration back in the day do not appear to have much moral value among many who are today in the corridors of power.
This country still discriminates mightily. A sad thing to say 50 years after one of the most powerful speeches ever delivered. In front of a monument to a leader who gave another of the most powerful speeches even delivered.
