    Although Martin Luther King was for the equality of all mankind – meaning that Black people were uplifted and seen/viewed/and treated as equals, his main focus was on the plight and the uplifting of the Black communities! What these organizers, seemingly, have done is attached a mish mosh of different causes to this very specific and important event all for their own individual gain! This is shameful, at best. Amnesty (which would completely CRUSH the Black communities, nationwide) should NOT have a platform in the celebration of a march which started as a protests to uplift the Black man/woman! Gay pride should NOT have a platform, here! This is messy. Our ‘leaders’ have allowed it to get messy and, thereby, defiled the whole sanctity of the entire Black empowerment and equality movement! How can one group advocate for something (amnesty) at this event when that same thing they advocate for would result in an incredible number of Black people being unemployed?? This is ridiculous. Talk amongst yourselves, people. You are being played for suckers but you don’t have to agree with it. Spread the word, NO AMNESTY for your own good. (Yes, I too, am a proud Black person)
