“Many people fear nothing more terribly than to take a position which stands out sharply and clearly from the prevailing opinion. The tendency of most is to adopt a view that is so ambiguous that it will include everything and so popular that it will include everybody.”

  1. It’s sad that Obama represents the co-opting of the civil rights movement rather than the culmination of it.

  2. I love both this photo and the quote (which I’ve not read before). Thanks for sharing it. I chose to write today on the racism that was and still is prevalent among some white Midwesterners. It’s called “Was He Only Dreaming?: Hoosier Perspectives on Martin Luther King”. I’d love for you to check it out and tell me what you think.
